^ You're right, that is ridiculous.  :(  He was a great character that was much more then what a small group of people claim.  He was smart, had a doctorate, was married, successful, and lived the American dream!  How is that racist?  Is it because he is a different color?  Need I remind people that people ARE different colors?  Did they realize the Simpsons are yellow?  Are they mad about his voice?  Did I mention people have accents.... did I mention he is a cartoon character?  Don't they all have silly voices?

If they are mad about how Apu represents and Indian man.... why aren't caucasians mad about how Homer or Peter Griffin represent white people? 

Another example of how rampant leftism is ruining everything Period.

Is it because he's been the focus of an number of episodes that makes him such a target? I mean, Cookie Kwan is an even more agregious stereotype of Asians, and no one's complained about her because she hasn't had a real DIL episode in the twenty or so years since her debut. Also, "Kwan" (and its various spellings) is usu. a Vietnamese or Korean surname, not mainland Chinese, but we have yet to hear the Simpsons writers taken to task for that.

Personally, as a man of Scots-Irish extraction man myself I'm looking to see Groundskeeper Willie step up and fill the breach left by Apu's absence. We've only had two Willie-focused eps in thirty-odd seasons, and it's a tragedy.
