Sorry I didn't read all the posts but here's how I see it:
Reid spoke like a 70 year old guy from a Mormon culture would speak; it's more of the language of someone who is kind of clueless as opposed to racist.
After all, if you boil down what he said, it's pretty much "Americans won't elect a dark skinned black man who speaks like Jesse Jackson, but they will elect this guy."
I don't see that as racist. In fact, I agree with it, at least for the present.
To compare him to Trent Lott, who said that if we had a segregationist racist President we wouldn't have all these troubles these days is ridiculous.
And I will be glad when Senator Byrd goes as well.
Let's just face it...no Republican or conservative can make these sort of remarks ("poor choice of words"), or anything remotely similar, without the "Justice Brothers" and the rest of the Left labeling them racist.
It is just the way it is.

If I say that Americans won't elect a fat white guy who speaks with an Italian accent, is that racist or just acknowledging what is probably true?
