in an attempt to step back from name calling...my final comment was not intended to be defensiveness, it was an ironic comment to highlight the ridiculousness of making assumptions about racial sterotyping. in our specific case, the superficial assumption that 'apu is an indian-american who works in a convience store and is therefore a negative sterotype' is as ridiculous as saying that all white people are oppessors. i guess that wasn't clear enough. wow...i wrote that^^^^, i was going to be nice, give you yet another chance to drop the 'i'm yellow and white society oppresses me' front that you throw around here every time you post, but, i go to review the topic and i find more shit like this: oh, i see, the fact that i find intelligent satire about racial sterotyping to be non-offensive and in fact beneficial to equality efforts and that i'm offended by your white bashing equates me with the kkk. that's pretty lame of you to say, not to mention extremely rude. but honestly, i shouldn't have expected much more from you. BTW thanks for highlighting exactly what i originally alluded to: you feel that anyone who disagrees with your opinions on race relations is a bigot, without recognizing your own (obvious) prejudices. *sigh* i'm not even going to bother to continue this, you're far too pathetic.
