Racism against Obama?

I don’t understand why this is racist? I mean didn’t Obama make history by being the first African-American President in the White House? He’s the first black president in the White House. Those who made this ad can’t be commended for being tasteful, but racist? Not at all. I mean what else are people going to say? That the prez is gay because there are rainbows in the background? Why are people so quick in using the race-card? Face it, Mr. President, you’re a celebrity. People are going to exploit you. Look at poor President Bush– he was subject to plenty of hate-cartoons (violent ones, and ones comparing him to monkeys, etc, Family Guy showing Bush friendly with the devil and terrorists) and even when Bush was thrown at with a shoe, he just laughed and shrugged it off.
