Can somebody explain to me how Sasha Cohen's Borat
is any less racist [and hence, presumed acceptable] than Mel Gibson's drunken anti-Semetic screeds
or "Kramer's" vitriol
while performing in a night club?
I really can't understand how Cohen's imbecilic, insensitive and insulting slur against an entire nation and what is posited as the nation's culture is considered comic genius while these two other reprehensible outbursts [which were, I'll note, much shorter in duration and quickly castigated] are called boorish.
Are we to find solace in that the film Borat
at least challenges geographically ignorant Americans to learn where Kazakhstan is on the planet?
