There may be some truth to that, but there is no doubt that racism and sexism are still problems, at least in some (I would suggest, many) communities. You seem to be implying that someone got paid to write that article. I had assumed it was just a disgruntled member of the free software community who spent some time writing down their thoughts. There doesn't have to be an ulterior motive to everything.
