^Where'd you see them? And how white was the crowd?

Why the fuck does that matter? Honestly. Would it be appropriate to ask, "How black was the crowd?" Unnecessary racism ftw.

Uhhh what? It's a legit question. I've heard their crowds are generally white and I was curious to hear if it was the same. Tyler talks about it in his music for ****'s sake.

And how can that even be viewed as racist? Everyone's so touchy about these things.

Cincinnati. It was a moshing dance party the entire hour and a half.

The crowd was probably 80% white, of course this is Cincinnati. A fair share of hipsters, but a majority of the crowd were white high school jocks looking to throw some 'bows...

I'm not touchy about racism, I confront it. You are touchy about it. Look at the justification sprung forth in defense of your original proposition when it comes under scrutiny. You actually offer three clear justifications for making your statement.
It can be viewed as racist because it is racist. I don't fucking care what Tyler says about it. FYI the United States is something like 60-70% "white.". Playing those odds, most crowds are generally going to be white.

Sounds pretty sick. Definitely have to see them live sometime as they look like one of those groups that go all out no matter what show it is.

Not really a response in that it's lacking any relevance and your argument was very weak to begin with. Please humor me, if you're so dubious of my concern. I'll pose a couple questions to you: Why does race matter in this example?; Would learning the demographics of their crowds motivate you to attend one of their shows or not?; Would it otherwise alter your opinion of the group in any way?
