    Well, I'm sure the Asian community is happy to have so many white folk looking out for their interests and letting them know what they can and can't be offended by. As for racism, it has nothing to do with parodying a kung fu movie. They gave the actors Asian eyes. You don't see the racism in that because, well, you don't understand what racism is. You don't understand why Asians are upset because, well, you're not Asian. Seems to me, 9954, that you are just longing for the days when you could be openly racist without repercussion.

    Hahaha!!

    You officially have reached the lowest common denominator of butt hurt.

    You must be a real blast to hang out with. Taking everything so serious and incapable of taking a joke.

    You're the George Bush of racism. Racists are every where!! We need to get those evil-doers. We'll call it Operation Won Ton.

    They didn't give the only actors with "Asian eyes" them, the Asian actors where born with them. You are looking at this through racism colored glasses if you saw the characters with "asian eyes". Do you recall them having ****ty oriental accents now too? Represented Asians as complete subhuman and non-intelligent? Even pointed out by an offended by oriental costumes in a comic Asian marital arts parody, the actors didn't have something that's referred to as "taped eyes".

    Oh we're not telling Asians what they can or cannot be offended by, we're just saying what should and shouldn't be considered racist. You can say and do stuff that offends people but is not considered racist.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    Number one, I'm pretty sure 9954 is not white.

    Given that, I have a few questions:

    Who is supposed to be the angry white guy again?

    Who said anything about controlling whether or not someone, or some group was OFFENDED?

    Would you call the OFFENDED group of Asians, "angry old Asians"???

    This just tells me you can't differentiate between different types of comedy. There was nothing satirical about that episode. There was nothing similar to the two movies you reference. And even if there was, it doesn't matter. Something being okay in old timey times doesn't make it okay today. What they did offended a group of people. The show acknowledged that and apologized. Both move on. It's only angry (mostly) white men who keep grumbling about it long after.

    Are you poking fun at angry white men? Don't we have rights? BTW, we don't grumble. LOL

    Everyone in this country and world is so easily butt hurt now, it's ridiculous. I understand people do cross borders at times, but my God. Anything anyone says is either racist or offensive in todays society.
