It's easy enough to read between the lines (since we are not given the original source): Take the first line:

profanity, racist jokes and a sex column advocating rape and domestic violence.

You're gonna take AP's word for it that there were "racist jokes"? Read on. Here are the sentences I quoted above:

Inside the fake issue, the Howard Thurman lecture series _ designed to promote racial dialogue--was satirized with an article about a racist Civil War enthusiast drinking beer at a podium. The weekly sex column was written in Ebonics

Conclusion: satire mocking rap, mocking "diversity", mocking obsession with "RACISM". Satire that hit too close to home.
