Are the Obama protests racially motivated?

Needless to say, the racist right denies former president Jimmy Carter's claims:

"When a radical fringe element of demonstrators and others begin to attack the president of the United States as an animal or as a reincarnation of Adolf Hitler or when they wave signs in the air that said we should have buried Obama with Kennedy, those kinds of things are beyond the bounds," the Democrat who served from 1977-1981 told students at Emory University.

"I think people who are guilty of that kind of personal attack against Obama have been influenced to a major degree by a belief that he should not be president because he happens to be African American.

"It's a racist attitude, and my hope is and my expectation is that in the future both Democratic leaders and Republican leaders will take the initiative in condemning that kind of unprecedented attack on the president of the United States," Carter said.
He should know. He's a southerner. Furthermore, here in NY and in New England, I've heard racial slurs uttered by friends although they haven't been motivated to protest.

Meanwhile that crazy birther attorney/evangelist Orly Taitz was ripped a new one by Clay Land a bush appointed judge in Georgia who threatened her with sanctions and thrown out of court for trying to defend a soldier who defies deployment because she believes that Obama is not a legitimate president. How much do you want to bet that this isn't racially motivated?
