    Look, I am not Indian. But, for what it's worth, I never saw Apu as anything other than an endearing character on a show that we all grew up with. I can see how the arranged marriage story and the Vishnu references might rub wrong, but I never saw him as a stereotype. I mean, no more than Homer who, in real life would be a horrible husband and father. Alcoholic, lazy, chokes his son, borderline simple...

    in other words, it's just a cartoon. I may be wrong here...but Apu has been a major character on a beloved show for a very very long time. You argue for inclusion, and then attack a very lovable and sympathetic character. I don't know that that is fair. But, I am not Indian...so I defer to those that are. I just hope that this isn't a grasp at relevance by Mr. Kondabolu.
    I am not Indian and I haven't seen that doc, but it sounds like a lot of whining.

    Yes, Apu is a stereotype, but so are so many characters, and that's the thing of the Simpsons. They make fun of EVERYONE and EVERYTHING. And in good humor.

    I don't watch South Park on a regular basis, but I have seen it. And the last thing I would argue for is to for them to get rid of Kyle or stop letting Cartman make those antisemitic jokes. The creators and most of the audience are in on the joke.


    Sheeesh!


    There's an ep where Carl in the Simpsons says, not jut because I am African American, does that mean that I am good in basketball (alluding to the stereotype). And then, he slam dunks the basketball like Michael Jordan.

    The Hero's Duty medal from El Capitan might be my favorite movie premium ever.
