Something that really grinds my gears is when people champion old cartoons that use racist caricatures in place of humor. After all, what's so funny about a Chinese coolie stereotype or a blackface minstrel singer? Don't get me wrong, lots of old cartoons do have lots of good, funny moments. But when people whine about the "PC police" hacking up old cartoons, that's what pisses me off. After all, it's not as if those bits were especially funny or interesting, and there's nothing wrong with not wanting to offend people or be more sensitive to other cultures.
Sorry about this rant, but that's just something that kind of annoys me.
