Imagine: Obama comes to Europe for a state visit. Some people have some whatever grudge against the US (take your pick).
Lot´s of adoo in the streets etc.
Are protesters yelling “OBAMA GO HOME!” racist?
“By the sweat on our brows, and the strengths of our backs…Gentlemen. Hoist the Colours! And you, madam, I warn you, I know the entire Geneva Convention by heart!”
I would think the protests would be more political in nature rather than racist. I don’t see “Obama go home” as being racist in any manner.

Seen on a tshirt - “If life gives you melons you may be dyslexic”
When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.
ofcourse you don´t
I mean, you start with “I would think”
No matter how I look at it I can’t see it as being racist. People used to do the same to Bush when he traveled.
It would clearly depend on the motives for booing him.
Is it because of his domestic or foreign policies? Then it has nothing to do with racism.
Is it because of his ethnicity (in terms of him being an African-American)? Then it is racist.
Is it simply because he is an American, de-coupled from the policies he stands for as a Head-of-State? Then it is xenophobic/nationalist/racist.
