Racism isn't going away any time soon. All we can do is educate and filter out the level in which it is acted upon. But if you think blacks have it rough in that regards, try being a white man living in an inner city predominantly black neighborhood. Nothing subtle about the racism that goes on there.
Here is the full quote for context: We must, however, acknowledge, as it seems to me, that man with all his noble qualities, with sympathy which feels for the most debased, with benevolence which extends not only to other men but to the humblest living creature, with his god-like intellect which has penetrated into the movements and constitution of the solar system with all these exalted powers Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin.
