    general media?  As someone who has been in the customer service industry I could make some strong arguments concerning other groups equally as culpable.

    Racism is a subject that is approached much too broadly.  In today's environment, people make a living off of racism or the suggestion there of just as there are a number of folks who are extremely vocal about the environment who are more in business to make money from the on-going controversy. In no way do they want the controversy to go away.  So is the case with racism. For years, now key figures in the African-American sector have stirred the pot of racial strife at every opportunity and then moved into the middle of the situation with offers to make the problem go away if the money is right. When this occurs in corporations or organizations, these opportunist collect money from the companies or organization to smooth the situation and basically make it go away.  The people involved getting nothing out of monetarily or in terms of the injustice, if one was actually committed. Racism, in its true form, is ugly and no individual or organization in their right mind wants anything to do with carrying it out.  Sadly, it will always exist to some degree as will the prejudices and jealousies between people. As a society we need to learn to recognize opportunist and their attempts to gain financially from these situations.  WB
