    If you think this is true you are completely moronic.
    What if it's a Jew who actually happens to HAVE a pile of gold and a big nose.

    I refuse to cater to the overly sensitive.

    Well then why isn't the media outraged about South Park?

    No idea, could be for plenty of reasons. Personally I don't have a problem with South Park's various racist jokes because I know they're done for humor and they seem to more be poking fun at stereotypes than embracing them. If we're talking about the Washington Post guy I think the media reaction was overblown, but looking at his works he is certainly a racist and a bigot so I would personally abstain from buying the paper that gives him work.

    Because I'm guessing that the overwhelming majority of its audience is probably aware that the intent is ironic.

    While it is the position of myself and a few others here that the black/ape comparison is traditionally racist, the other side has introduced the diversionary topic of outrage into the thread. This has resulted in muddying the issue entirely rather than just addressing whether something is or isn't racist. Which is most likely the point.

    It's also an ad hom, technically, but whatever.

    Context and intent are important. South Park attempts to simultaneously be ironic while mocking the stereotype itself. If one of these stereotypes is used specifically to be derogatory, demeaning or insulting then it is considered racist.
