Race, like centrifugal force, is an artificial construct; it doesn't exist.

Is indian giving also racist?

When one has readily acceptable and understood alternatives for a name yet insists on the one that maximizes shame on a group they don't like...it might be racist.

he has said the words corona before. yet reverts pointedly to this.
