The fact that it can put itself out there in the guise of a real video and perhaps be believed by some people is possibly due to already-existing underlying attitudes that run along the lines you suggest, but that's about it. Whether the use of the words "Crazy African" in the title are playing up to that stereotype or not is something that's impossible to say, but probably isn't a big deal.
The only racism is in the comments ("is that obama w the gun??", "which of them is the monkey? ?", "theres no laws in Africa you fool, these guys live in the fucking jungle", etc), but if we're basing this on youtube comments then EVERYTHING is racist, not to mention 9/11 being an inside job and the moon landings being faked by Rupert Murdoch.

It is a chimp, which is an Ape, like you or me, it is not a monkey
