"Politics is the Art of Looking for Trouble, Finding it Everywhere, Diagnosing it Incorrectly, and Applying the Wrong Remedies"
It was an comic parody of Asian martial arts-fantasy cinema, how was the actors going to be dressed? In suits and ties? Monty Python surreal characterizations in a mythological "world" punctuated with none of roles of story played by Asians in "cosplay".

'People Are So Sensitive Nowadays'
Probably the best Don Lemon interview I've ever seen. He can be a bit of a douche at times. Is that racist?
What's funny is that nobody is angrier than white people who think we've gotten too PC. A group of people were offended by the show, the show acknowledged it and apologized, both move on, old white men remain angry.
I wasn't really offended by it, but I'm not Asian and I didn't grow up as one, being constantly bombarded by condescending stereotypes. I'm not in the business of telling people what they can and can't be offended by. You apparently are. By all means, stay angry about this. Shake your fists in the air. Let them know you want to ridicule their race and their culture and you damn well better be allowed to! Demand that HIMYM rescind their apology! Fight the power!
