Of course not. No one ever gets all bent out of shape about Notre Dame and its offensive "fighting Irish" mascot. So what if it is an old 19th century ethnic insult? The Irish are more mature as a people than that.
I grew up on "Monty Python", "Sanford and Son" and "Cheech and Chong". Remember when this nation stood for freedom of speech and of expression and folks were allowed to laugh about their stereotypes?
Never met an Italian guy who did not like "The Godfather" movies.
The biggest threat to our personal liberty is not racism. It is the humorless intolerance of political correctness. The very idea that somehow our private thoughts need to be regulated by big brother government. George Orwell's warnings in "1984" were prophetic.

"Political Correctness" was invented by white liberals. As we all know, the Liberal/Marxist/Progressives are always trying to change things in this country that some deem as antique!
When I was coming up, a cripple person was a cripple.
Is changing how he's described going to cure him?.
When I was growing up, the word "Colored" was used, and no one thought anything about it.
Why should we use the term "African-American", we can look at him and see he has ties to Africa.
This crap about I don't want to hurt anyone's feeling, is just that, crap.
I'm simply an American, and that's that.
