What's racist about it? As I recall, the same things were said about Clinton's presidential library.
“My god! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy? I confess I had no idea of it myself.” Jefferson writing to Madison on America in 1785 while in Paris.

I got no idea - thought it were a clever float idea. Clinton got the same, GWB got the same, Carter got the same. I think even Reagan got the same. All as cartoons, mind, not floats, but it were pretty evenly balanced to both sides.

I am going to be mildly charitable to the woman complaining. She's Kenyan. The last days before Kenyan independance were hard fought, and there was a very bad taste joke going around at the time (I only know it because it was prevalent in the UK about a decade later):

"What is transparent and lays in the gutter? A kaffir with the crap kicked out of him."

Horrible joke, but it might explain her response.  :shrug:
