I wouldn't call not releasing any American-exclusive pets "being racist". To me, it just seems like business/marketing strategy. Since other regions are so far away from direct access to Blizzard HQ itself, Blizzcon, and other misc Blizzard events, I think it makes sense to incentivise the sale of their game by adding on unique/extra bonuses. It's like saying, 'Hey, even if we don't have close contact, we like and appreciate the fans in your country too. Here's some neat stuff!'
If Blizzard HQ and most Blizzard events were stationed outside of America, I'm sure we'd see American-exclusive pets too.
That being said, there's always the option to open up the availability of those bonuses to other regions as well. But that's entirely up to them.
