I'm that black guy, so I'm glad that we agree on this. Thanks!
Here's one that did make sense, and that's the GNU/Linux distro in Extremadura, Spain. It's basically a hack of Debian, geared for that region's specific needs. Same for Red Flag Linux (China)...or has that morphed yet into Asianux? I seem to remember some talk about that a couple of years ago.
Here's another: Edubuntu, an educationally-oriented hack of Ubuntu. Same for K12LTSP, which is an educational hack of Fedora/CentOS. Both of those make PERFECT sense. Same for Knoppix (live CD's)--very useful Debian hack.
If anything, the folks who need to be "protected" are the MS Windows users. :-) They're scared of anything that looks like "that black-box DOS prompt--AAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!" That's where something like KDE or GNOME comes in handy, be those persons male, female, white, black, green Martian, red Vulcan elephant (assuming red Vulcan elephants can use computers), or otherwise.
Hmm...come to think of it, it'd actually be quite interesting to meet a red Vulcan elephant that knew how to use a computer. Probably the most "logical" elephant you'd ever meet! (har har) Oh, and being an elephant, of course its memory would be nonvolatile. :-D
