Is God a racist because He wanted a separation of nations within Israel?

“They have taken some of their daughters as wives for themselves and their sons, and have mingled the holy race with the peoples around them. And the leaders and officials have led the way in this unfaithfulness.” Ezra 9:2

            No, God loved the people of those nations, however, He wanted a spiritually pure Israel and He knew these places brought their own gods with them.  A racist hates people for their race.  God hated the peoples’ religions and where they put their faith.
