'I give him a wife, he gives me wifi" Is this Kansiime skit racist?

I have made it a habit to check out Uganda's funniest woman Kansiime's YouTube videos every week, she is so HILARIOUS!

Well...her latest video has some singing her praises and others saying the clip is racist. In the skit, we see a mother and daughter having a conversation about the latter marrying a white man. The response from the mother in the clip in my opinion is an exaggeration of a typical African parent's response.  The matriarch is bewildered at the notion of her daughter marrying a white man saying "she doesn't want to be a tourist attraction.." and much much more!

The reaction to the video has been mixed with some loving it and some hating it. Someone commented:

"Sorry this made be labelled as comedy but, shows people still haven't moved on.God created us all in his image we are all the same underneath.So skin colour should make no difference in a relationship you love the person not the colour of their skin.."

Check out the clip below and let me know what you think. Is this video racist?
