In this country you have the right to say whatever bile, stupid, ignorant, thing you want, and that's okay. However, we have the right to tell you to st*u. Freedom of speech protects you against retaliation from the government, not from individuals. However, there is such a thing as being too overly pc. I think this whole thing is ridiculous, same as with The Phantom Menace, it's obviously meant in good fun and we all have to laugh at ourselves once in a while. People need to lighten up.
I don't think people should "abuse" their freedom of speech...but I think that things like this "racist transformers" takes PC a little too far...it's just complaining to complain.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out
