"Why is it that Arabs are always shown as either oil-rich sheiks, terrorists, or belly dancers?" said Warren David, president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, or ADC.

Exactly! Why not show what they really are. Ganbangin Jiggers in the sand.

This is about the 3rd or 4th commercial I have heard about that some "group" has found offensive for some very stupid reason or another. If they don't like it they can change the damned channel. Or in the case of the ADC, if you don't like the first amendment, go back to the desert.

I saw several stereotypes in that video, sterotypes about American 'cowboys', American showgirls, I suppose the other guys were portraying a stereotype about Austrailians. Stereotypes are often used in humor and satire. Get over it.(As in "Why are Americans always shown as cowboys?")

Why do you spell so poorly, meeting a teabagger stereotype ?

The only time you are actually funny is when you point out the spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors of others on these threads. How's your 'orangutang' doing? You obviously have been saying and/or spelling that specie's name wrong your entire life. Get over it. Oh, lose the uneccessary commas too.
