What's the Opposite of 'Reverse Racism'?

Leave it to some racist politician in South Carolina to spew this kind of vitriol:
State Sen. Robert Ford made his remarks during a Senate committee debate over an Arizona-style immigration law, eliciting a smattering of nervous laughter in the chamber after he said "brothers" don't work as hard as Mexicans. He continued that his "blue-eyed brothers" don't either...
..."We need these workers here. A lot of people aren't going to do certain type of work in this country," said Ford, D-Charleston. "The brothers are going to find ways to take a break. Ever since this country was built, we've had somebody do the work for us."
Who could possibly take these comments the wrong way?
The executive director of the state GOP called on Ford to apologize. 
"It's abhorrent and incredibly offensive that any elected official would make comments this racist," said executive director Joel Sawyer. 
Come to think of it, the comments do seem to rely on generalizations based on race...but does that necessarily mean they're racist?
Ford, who ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination last year, said he'd apologize, but he doesn't know what for, or what it would change.
You go, Senator Ford!  Only politicians and abusive husbands know how to pull that kind of apology off.
"Black guys and white guys are going to get out there and do the hard work? No. I'm for America, and America's a country of immigrants," Ford said later when reached on his cell phone. "Everybody in America finds ways to take a break." 
"...and if you disagree with me, then you're against America!"
To his critics, he said, "They're taking life too serious. My advice is for them to get a life and to learn American history."
And my advice to Senator Ford is to get a life and learn American grammar.
The state NAACP leader called Ford's wording unfortunate, and that Ford should have spoken in the larger context from the start, rather than further stereotypes. 
"All human beings that I know of share both positive and negative traits," said Lonnie Randolph with the South Carolina chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. "All individuals share the same shortcomings."
Ford then pointed at Lonnie Randolph and screamed "You work for the advancement of colored people?!  What kind of racist uses that kind of language these days?!"

For the record, Ford is African-American.  So his racism is not the bad kind.
