Things that Embarrass me

Back when I was 18, I read Lucifer's Hammer, by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle. That doesn't embarrass me.

What embarrasses me is that I saw nothing at all objectionable about the fact that the villains of the story are an army of black cannibals (with hippies serving as the brains of the outfit). How did I not realize that was awful at several different levels?
