Is it inherently racist? No. I can imagine an ignorant country bumpkin saying that this is 'merica blah blah blah, and really simply mean it.
However. People who should know better (be able to think it through) choose not to. I suspect that they fail to do so often for racist reasons.
You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.
