“Racial Loyalty” means racism

The Washington Post states in an article today that:

“There is a certain amount of racial loyalty and party loyalty, but eventually that was going to have to weaken,” said Andra Gillespie, a political scientist at Emory University, who studies African Americans.

“Racial Loyalty”???  Is that the new PC term for racism?  When the KKK and the NAZIs talk about “racial loyalty” it is negative and it should be for anyone who cares more for skin color than character.
