      • And that’s gonna be my last thought on the matter. Like I said before, if it wasn’t announced that Apu would be written out, I wouldn’t have noticed, because he hasn’t been a major character on the show in years. I’m just growing increasingly frustrated with the discourse.

        • I’ve been bullied about my race before, and I’ve been called “Speedy Gonzalez”, and I’m not even Mexican. But those people were not taught by Speedy Gonzalez to be racist. They’d have found a different name to call me. Apu didn’t inspire racism, racists used Apu’s name to justify their already-present beliefs.

          • Do you know why I like animation so much? It’s because I don’t have to be me. I’m lanky, pasty, terrifyingly skinny, and taller than Bigfoot. I have huge, puffy lips and an ungodly forehead. My facial hair grows like pubic hair, and my regular hair looks like if Shaggy Rogers did meth. I don’t have to be... any of those things. I can make a cartoon where I play a buff black guy on Mars. I can be a hairless dwarf who’s just escaped from a government lab. I can be the President of the United States of America, and I don’t even have to win Ohio. I can make whatever I want and I can be whoever I want. And nobody can tell me I’m not that person. Because they can’t see my face. That’s why, despite everything I’ve said tonight, I don’t despise Bumblebee Man. Or Consuela. Or Dr. Nick, or Speedy Gonzalez, or Sheen Estevez. Because they’re cartoons. They can do and be ANYTHING. And I think that’s magical. And I’d like to think if I were Indian, I’d feel the same way about Apu.

            • So what makes Apu special? Why does Hari Kondabolu think he deserves special treatment, when the rest of us have to deal with the same kind of treatment by the media, if not worse?

                      • Hari Kondabolu is lucky he has an Indian character to hate at all! Cuz if I made a documentary about how much I hate a Hispanic cartoon character, odds are nobody watching it would even know the character EXISTS.

                        • I can’t relate to SPEEDY GONZALES! He’s a MOUSE! Maybe—just maybe—none of this MATTERS, because they’re all cartoons. The problem with Apu is that people are more outraged about HIM than the fact that every Hispanic cartoon character is a housemaid, the leader of a multi-national drug cartel, a guy who’s working seventeen hours a day on Mitt Romney’s estate with an expired or nonexistent work visa, or a mouse in a sombrero!

                          • I can count the amount of Hispanic-American cartoon characters on mainstream TV on one hand, none of them are Puerto Rican, and one of them is this lady (voiced by Mike Henry, a white actor). In fact, I’m struggling to think of a single Hispanic character in ANY animated media, save for my namesake in My Little Brony (whose Hispanic heritage is touched on lightly, if at all), to actually be voiced by a Hispanic actor (and I’m guilty of vocal blackface, whiteface, orangeface...) Hispanic characters in media are often portrayed as illegal immigrants or drug dealers. Or both. On The Simpsons, we have a whopping TWO Hispanic characters—one of them is batcaveing Bumblebee Man, and the other one is Dr. Nick maybe. I don’t sound like cherryin’ Dr. Nick. I don’t know a SINGLE Hispanic person that sounds like Dr. Nick. AND he’s incompetent! But APU, the hard-working ladies man with a DOCTORATE in COMPUTER SCIENCE, is the problem? http://rainbowdash.net/url/872979

                                • Apparently they're gonna be writing Apu out of The Simpsons starting this season. I know that these days he's sort of a controversial character and a lot of people don't like him, and I'm not really one to complain about PC culture, but Apu's character goes beyond his ethnicity, and I think the people who called for his removal ignored that. With that being said, I’m not going to pretend this is a tragedy. Ultimately, whatever they choose to do with the character on The Simpsons is up to them. Apu's been out of focus for several years now, so I can't say that his absence would be a huge deal, because that would be disingenuous. The Simpsons is also a much different show now than it was thirty years ago. Almost none of the original writers are still on the show, and a few of them are even younger than the show itself. If their vision of the show doesn't include Apu, I can't really fault them.
