It would be great if I knew the source of of the hadith you mentioned. Because, when I checked the source of the hadith, I got unlimited anti-Islamic sites.
Regarding racism in Islam...
How does Islam view racism? The Holy Qur'an cuts the very roots of racism in these words: 'O mankind! We have created you from a single male and female and made you into nations and tribes so that you may know each other. The most honorable of you in the sight of Allah are surely the righteous." (Al-Hujurat: 13)

And again:
"O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate and from them twain hath spread abroad a multitude of men and women." (An-Nisa': 1)

Thus Islam stresses the absolute unity in variety of the human race. The Prophet (peace be upon him) declared: "O people! You are all from Adam and Adam was made of dust. No Arab is to be preferred over a non-Arab except by virtue of his piety." He also said: "Allah does not look at your shapes or your colors but He looks at your hearts (intentions) and your deeds. Creatures are the dependants of Allah and the closest among them to Allah are indeed the most useful to His dependants."

Thus we can see that Islam is the very antidote to racism; and where Islam flourishes there cannot be any place for racism.

Anyone who told you that false information that you are a black person and you would go to hell if ENTIRELY false!!! I would recommend that person to stop copying and pasting from anti-Islamic sites and see the true Islam for himself/herself.

My question to you:
Why was Malcolm X a Muslim? and millions of blacks who are Muslims, shouldn't they be concerned about their position in Islam?
Truly Malcolm X said:
"I am not a racist in any form whatever. I don't believe in any form of racism. I don't believe in any form of discrimination or segregation. I believe in Islam."

I welcome you to Islam(if you have reverted), on the behalf of thousands of Muslims! If you haven't reverted, think about it again. I recommend you to do a search on this topic from RELIABLE Islamic sources!!
May Allah(swt) guide you and keep you in the right path!!!
Peace :)
