"White Girls in The Club" - Racist, or Just Funny?

Here's a track by Trina called "White Girl". Its not really a new track, but it's one that I forgot I had in my collection. It features Flo Rida and GitFresh. The track is basically Trina saying that she wants to get loose in the club, and "party like a white girl". It's got tight production, basically a real good party track. Check it out:

Anyway, I played this one at the club this weekend, and I got an interesting reaction. Pretty much everybody seemed to like it, and danced to it. There was one girl who my wife over-heard calling the record "racist". I guess I can let everybody judge that for themselves. In my experience, a lot of the white girls in the club just seem to party harder than everyone else. A lot of them tend to be more unrestrained, less self-conscious, and just party harder in general. That's not a bad thing, and I do get what Trina was trying to say.

Here's Jenna Marbles (a white girl) talking about the subject, in her video "White Girls In the Club":

The interesting thing is that the same girl in the club who thought the Trina track was racist was then dancing to the Tyga/Little Wayne track "Faded". She loved that track (and so do I honestly) - but to me, those lyrics are totally misogynistic (or at the very least degrading):

Ironic, huh? I guess the bottom line is that things have gotten just a little too "PC". In my opinion, life is short. We all need to loosen up, and have some fun! If we continue to get so easily offended, it won't be long before we're playing "edited" versions of every song. In adult nightclubs. I don't know about you, but that just doesn't sound right to me.

What do you think? Is the Trina song racist, or just funny?
