I'm a fairly young white male and I understand some of the frustrations of feeling like you are being persecuted for the sins of our grandfathers and ancestors.
But I find it pretty naive and ignorant to tell black people to "move on" or "don't be so sensitive". OF course they are sensitive about it!
Think about it like this. It is like you are walking into a parking garage with a woman who was raped in a parking garage and telling her "Why are you so sensitive about parking garages?? You got raped a long time ago. Get over it. Move on. Most parking garages don't even have rapists in them so why do you hate parking garages so much??"
People who have never had to experience what others experience on a day to day basis should not tell those people how they should feel.
Last thing and I will get off my soap box. I played basketball all the way through college and have had numerous friends/teammates that were black. In college we were all 18-22 years old and every one of my black teammates had a story about how racism had effected them negatively at some point in their young (at that point) lives. When you have to deal with some of the things they have had to deal with being sensitive is understandable.

Knock it off already, both of you. Top Banana is an expression for being the best, and playing on the fact that chiquita is relocating to charlotte. To drag historical context and monkeys into this is so far out there its almost unimaginable, but intertubes will connect I guess.
