If it's because there were a lot of minorities in there, yes racist and yes it's pointing out a reasonable stereotype.

Saying something like "you like basketball, right?" to a black male is racist. It is also a pretty reasonable guess because black males like to put themselves into the stereotype. Racist yes, reasonable stereotype yes, but just refrain from mentioning it unless you're trying to be a dck like your friend.

Who cares.

Using the word "racism" is idiotic.

Every race is different.

You're either Christian or you're democrat, and Christians don't drink. Reasonable assumption.

Implying that you can (consistently without error) discern ones political leaning by looking at them.
