I didn't see the episode. I like sit-coms as a creative vehicle but comedy can be a tough line to walk between funny and offensive. I don't think the writers at CBS would deliberately try to offend but it can happen.
You have to excuse me but I haven't noticed at any point where I said "these people" weren't entitled to their opinion. If you can refresh me with said notion I would be most grateful. I'm just giving my opinion of their opinion. Where's the problem?? Anyone could be offended, happens all the time. My broccoli beef is that this offence doesn't rise to the level of racism. Sorry I don't see it. All I see is a bunch of chop sticks when all I need is a knife (Alanis Morissette)
A comedy show that does parodies and jokes about everything and everyone all the time. Isn't racist when they happen to do a bit about Kung Fu and Asians in jest. It doesn't even fit the standard definition of racism..........
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racismRACISM = poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race
: the belief that some races of people are better than others
IMO if you really think that this bit hits that definition of racism and these writers are no different than the KKK, who think Asians are 2nd class citizens strictly because of race. And are totally doing this out of hate of another race of human beings.
Then I got a box of tissues for you, just my opinion.
My point and opinion of their opinion is this......don't say something or someone is racist when it really isn't. And maybe people should grow thicker skin and learn how to take a joke. Because that's all it is.

This isn't about ridiculing a race or culture. It's about taking a joke and having thicker skin. And most importantly....not saying something is racist when it really isn't. If you think this fits the definition of racism then I say this..........
What up Walrus!!!!
How's that privacy thing going???
Hey, look, another 80's movie. And hey, look, there you go telling others what they can and cannot be offended by. How is that fist waving going? Have they rescinded their apology yet? You sure seem offended by it. Maybe you need thicker skin?
They can have their opinion but I can't have my opinion about their direct opinion???
Is that how this works??
Or are you strawmanning and deflecting the point like Shinobi deflects darts??
Straight up does this Kung Fu bit meet the standard definition of racism as told by http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/racism??
Answer the question.
If so then my argument is quite valid.
