In April 2005 Centrum Mot Rasism attracted attention when they criticized the advertisement for ice cream Nogger Black for being racist, which led to the questioning of the operation's seriousness in many media.
Later in 2005 integration minister Jens Orback called for an investigation into Centrum Mot Rasism.
Karlstad's municipal city planning committee changed the name of the neighborhood named Negro in the Tingvallastaden after the Centre against Racism had protested against a name that could be perceived as prejudiced and racist. The neighborhood name Negro had arisen in 1866 in connection with the reconstruction of the city after a raging fire that year.
