n*gga sit your a.ss down. I'm pretty sure "us" and "them" refer "smokers" seeing it as like having a beer and "non smokers" seeing it as bad. The fact you even got race issues out of that comment forces me to believe you're indeed a racist.
First of all, you're right, he was originally just talking about squares or people who generally think weed is evil or are allergic to anything illegal no matter how bad it actually really is.
As far as your last comment though (just to play devil's advocate here, because that's how I do), so you're saying anytime a minority reads a white person's comments that have to do with an issue and the minority gets offended (as the white person did here) saying it was a subliminal blanket statement about minorities — then that makes the minority who obviously has race on their mind a racist?
In layman's terms — are you saying playing the race card, via deciphering a message as racially charged, makes you a racist?
