Old Navy Commercial - Racist Or Good Wholesome Fun?!?

In this post-racial America, the Obama effect extends everywhere, and the world of TV commercials is no different. While I love seeing black families included in ads, this one admittedly rubs me the wrong way. I can't exactly say why though.

Just don't know how to feel about this one. What do ya'll think?

Question: Is this commercial racist for objectifying the black woman, or is it actually sorta refreshing to see a black woman (albeit not a real one) the object of desire?
