If “Urban” is racist, then “suburban” would be a hateful slur. Like calling someone subhuman.

Is this racist? Paging RaccoonRadio (our resident radio expert):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_contemporary

Urban contemporary is a music radio format. The term was coined by the late New York DJ Frankie Crocker in the mid-1970s. Urban contemporary radio stations feature a playlist made up entirely of hip hop, R&B, pop, house, electronica such as dubstep and drum and bass (often with hip hop vocalists or rappers) and Caribbean music such as reggae, reggaeton, zouk, and sometimes Soca (In Toronto, London, New York City, Boston and Miami).
