It's an outdated stereotype and I see no reason why people should be up in arms over that.
I'm not sure if you're implying that I'm prejudiced in some way or not...I stand by my statement that the United States has become overly sensitive, and frankly ought to lighten up. The divide between joking and real hate/racism/prejudice which you refer to seems to be virtually nonexistent in this country.
