Looks like it attempts to prove you are racist by assuming that you will subconsciously press a key with a negative connotation due to race of the politician pictured. So, what if just you hate the politician and press the wrong key? Then, it seems to ask loaded questions like, "Do ____ people deserve their problems?" Um, what if I think that sometimes individuals bring problems upon themselves, which that has nothing to do collectively with race? But they don't list that as an answer choice.
Exactly, you nailed it. The poll is a sham, not seeking to measure results, but fabricate them. Bad premises lead to bad conclusions. In this case, you have to first start with the premise that individuals don't exist in order to take the poll. If you don't start from that premise, the poll won't make any sense to you. The author is starting with the opposite premise of collectivism, which is ironically the philosophy at the root of all racism. His poll is actually promoting racism because it's his collectivist premises that make racism possible.
