Ralph Nader, Racist

Is there any other way to interpret a remark like this:

I mean, first of all, the number one thing that a black American politician aspiring to the presidency should be [doing] is…

No matter how he concludes that sentence, isn’t the very premise already racist?  Can I now decide what issues Ralph Nader should be addressing based on his Lebanese heritage?

For the record, Nader’s complete comment is as follows:

I mean, first of all, the number one thing that a black American politician aspiring to the presidency should be is to candidly describe the plight of the poor, especially in the inner cities and the rural areas, and have a very detailed platform about how the poor is going to be defended by the law, is going to be protected by the law, and is going to be liberated by the law.

To top it all off, Nader then goes on to make racially stereotyping remarks about “whites”.
