This really isn't up for debate. It is a racist stereotype. But that's more socially acceptable in Japan than the US.

No, I just think people today have become sensitive to the point of ridiculousness. The slightest comment can be viewed as racist regardless of the intended context. It makes me sick.

No it isn't, or at least not an intentional one.

Longer answer: No, people are just oversensitive. Everyone's so worried about being perceived as rascist that they see rascism in the most inocent of sources.

In actuality, rascism is almost(but not quite) non-existant in this world. We need to be truly color blind to get there, which means ignoring stuff like this and treating people exactly the same despite race.

I, for one, ignore anything that might be considered rascist, and give it's origins and motivation the benefit of the doubt. If everyone did this, rascism would completely disapeer.
