The AP: deliberately offensive, or just braindead?

Question that the Asscociated Press will never ask: Do White People Support Romney Because He’s White?

Free answer: yes!!

A more interesting question: is the AP deliberately trolling us with this racist dreck, or could they actually be that clueless?

Update: this photo illustrates my point rather nicely.
