  1. And I have a feeling Mormons ain’t too happy that South Park and Mitt Romney are the only reasons that people know Mormons still exist. African Americans PROBABLY aren’t thrilled that Cleveland Brown and Madea are the two most popular black characters in the 21st century. And how do you think Italians feel about MARIO?

    1. @mrmattimation Eh, my half-Italian roommate has no known beef with Mario, and my Mexican grandpa loves Speedy Gonzalez.

      1. @scribus I don’t have any actual beefs with any Hispanic characters either, even though most of them are crazy outdated stereotypes. My point was that, REGARDLESS of how anybody felt about them, and despite how outdated and misrepresentative those characters ARE, NOBODY is calling for the removal of ANY of them. Like I said last night I’ve just grown increasingly frustrated with the Apu discourse over the last week and it kind of boiled over.

        1. @mrmattimation Yeah, I get that; I was posting in agreement.
