I once commented on Ultrabrown about how they were getting excessively offended by Appu (during the Simpsons-7-11 controversy). Some NRI twits really lost it, saying they were traumatized by mean schoolmates because of Appu. I said that people make fun of others who are different whether or not they get inspiration from TV. And that pissed them off eve more.So I now avoid anything consciously ethnic. I am an internationalist.
Internationalist my brown backside - you're just trying to be PC. Not that there's anything wrong with that.
How it avoiding the "desi" schtick PC? It's more PC to criticize Appu for being a negative Indian character.
How is avoiding desi schtick international? What exactly do you mean by 'avoid anything consciously ethnic'?
