It was possibly "racist". But I welcome other opinions

In a football game, when first down is in question, they haul out the chains. The camera focuses on the nose of the ball and the chain, then one side, or the other, cheers. The measuring part is a formality, the more important question is where the other end of the chain was placed and is the chain indeed ten yards long. I find it odd that this is not the focus of the decision.
