Well, thanks for providing an example which probably illustrates why we are likely to disagree about how widespread false allegations of racism are. First of all, most people are reporting what he said without a great deal of comment, because, quite frankly, it speaks for itself.
I suppose one could claim that it isn't racist because Gingrich knows better and he's merely trying to provoke a response and appeal to people who are racist, but that seems a distinction without a difference.
At the very least, I have trouble figuring out how someone couldn't at least see the problems with his statement, even if they disagreed as to whether it's racist.
