Barack and the Press? Is this Cartoon Racist?

Racism in Obama cartoon?


This cartoon depicts Barack Obama kissing a white woman named Press.  The obvious intent is to say the Press and Barack Obama are in love.  Is there a hidden subliminal message that makes this racist?   If the woman were black would that be okay?  What if the woman were bi-racial?  If the woman is anything other than his wife, wouldn’t that be another problem?
