Racism Example #1: (3.17.10)

This is quoting Jane Lynch on her character in Glee.

"Sue Sylvester: Let me break this down for you, okay? I empower my Cheerios to be champions. Do they go onto college? I don't know, I don't care. Should they learn Spanish? Sure, if they wanna become dishwashers and gardeners. But if they want to be bankers and lawyers and captains of industry, the most important lesson they could possibly learn is how to do a round off. "

 

If you still didn't get what she just said up there, her character actually leaves a slur on Latinas or any other Spanish race out there who most often ends up as we see on TV and movies as maids (e.g. Hot Chick, Will & Grace, The Nanny Diaries). Take note no one cared. And this is quite an insult mind you. But did you hear any of them protest on TV and ask for public apology or a worldwide boycott?

A resounding NO.
