A New Documentary Calls Into Question The Simpson's 'Apu'

Quote:
One of the most difficult tasks in Hollywood is to get someone who is successful to admit they are dead wrong.

That's a lesson comic Hari Kondabolu learned the hard way, while making his compelling, layered, highly entertaining documentary airing on truTV Sunday, The Problem with Apu.

On the surface, it's kind of a comedy primal scream: a passionate exploration of why the Indian character on The Simpsons, Kwik-E-Mart clerk Apu Nahasapeemapetilon, is racist.

Beneath that, a tension simmers, pulling viewers through the film. It's rooted in a quest Kondabolu undertakes similar to Michael Moore's hunt for General Motors' CEO Roger Smith during his debut film Roger & Me; Kondabolu wants to talk about Apu with the white man who has voiced the character for more than 20 years, actor Hank Azaria.

"Coming up next on "Oprah": media clients who hire a white voice actor who can do a recognizable Morgan Freeman- or Barack Obama-type voice. Anachronism, offensive stereotype, or just plain racist? Right after these messages ......."

What happened to a country where men are men, women are women and people actually have kids instead of being so selfish?

It's strange though that's it's only the left in good old USA. In Canada (which is generally more liberal as a whole than us) shows like Little Mosque on the Prairie and Kims Convenience stereotype minorities in a pretty bad way and people laugh at the shows.
