Is this your opinion or do you have a source for this information?
It's the context in which they are used. Even the word 'love' can be racist in a specific context. That's just how language works.
To say racism isn't a part of this election? You're kidding yourself! Romney will destroy this country after hearing his speech.
In video broadcast Monday night by ABC and Yahoo over the Internet, Chalian can be heard claiming that GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his wife Ann are unconcerned about the fate of residents of the New Orleans area who are currently being hit by Hurricane Isaac.
“They aren’t concerned at all,” Chalian can be heard on the live broadcast. “They are happy to have a party with black people drowning.”
That line elicits laughter from several employees listening in on the joke.

Well deserved. This guy teaches this stuff!
Meanwhile, Rush "Solutions" Limbaugh offers the following brilliant idea to cause NO residents to drown. And somehow, he gets to keep his job.
RUSH LIMBAUGH: Okay, folks, it's a moment of truth. We are mere hours away now from Tropical Storm Isaac, which everybody is desperately hoping becomes a hurricane. I can't believe this. They are desperately hoping that it becomes a hurricane. It's the Democrats' wet dream that this thing hit New Orleans. So, you know me. My middle name is Solutions. I have some ideas for the Republicans. How to deal with the tropical storm, slash, hurricane hitting New Orleans.
The first thing we do is offer to send 500 bus drivers to New Orleans, paid for by us, to make sure that the buses that were not used by the Democrat mayor during Hurricane Katrina will be used to evacuate people should it become necessary. The second thing that I think the Republicans ought to do is send bags of money instead of sand. Bags full of money to shore up the levees in New Orleans. This would accomplish many things. A, it would show our compassion. B, we could have Romney's five sons who CNN last night asked, "What's it like to be rich as sin," or whatever. They did. Piers Morgan asked Romney's sons, (paraphrasing) "What's it like to be stinking rich?" So we have Romney's five sons deliver the bags of money to shore up the levees.
Now, this will accomplish much. It will show our compassion, and it will do something else. Once we publicize that we have sent 500 bags of money -- well, whatever number of bags, bags filled with money to shore up the levees, what will happen? The poor of New Orleans will storm the levees and steal the bags, thereby putting themselves at risk for the eventual flooding that will happen once they remove the bags of money. And that way the Republicans can get rid of even more Democrats in Louisiana and shore up the state for themselves. How about those two ideas, folks? Am I not thinking or am I thinking?
Recently I've read on here people claiming to listen to Rush for his entertainment value alone.
Kinda like people reading Playboy for the articles, dontcha think?
Limbaugh is one "Sick Puppy"! How anyone can listen to his show is beyond me!
These guys only survive because they have a populace that doesn't want to think. Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert aren't much better, even though they are super, way funnier.
And Michael Savage should be prosecuted.
I love Jon Stewart. He's not mean with his humor.
But Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert pick on both sides...
Yes, and sometimes they have solid points for arguments they make, Colbert more often than the others. But then, so does Rush occasionally, and even Savage, although you have to wade through hours and hours and hours of garbage and self promotion to find it from him. I give Colbert the most credit on that "both sides" account (and I love his show), but he often runs off on a pet party line with just as much enthusiasm as the rest of them, and then truth be damned from there. That's my point.
Ah. But when he does, he's in persona and actually parodying the party.
So it's like a double entendre.
You never really know where Stephen Colbert personally stands on any issue because he's a charicature.
We know he's Catholic but if he's pro-life it doesn't come across on his show.
I think he's effing brilliant.
But in general I prefer to watch more fair and balanced shows that present two sides to the issues.
"The View" for example.
