Is it right to describe French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen as racist?

She does not make openly racist statements. She has led the Front National, a party which does have a history of racist policies and anti-Semitism including denial of the Holocaust, through a process of "detoxification". Her policies include a hard line on immigration, and priority for French nationals in employment law. It is a matter of debate whether the Front National has actually changed or has just changed appearances.
