Have you read the news online about the new Transformer Movie? Some people are trying to say that the two twin robots are racists!!! I think this is a real stretch. Some reporter with the Associated Press made the online report stating that the two robots are "jive- talking Chevy" characters were racial caricatures. That Skids and Mudflap,twin robots disguised as compact hatchbacks, constantly brawl and bicker in rap-inspired slang. They're forced to admit that they can't read. And One has a Gold Tooth!! He went on to say that even though they fight along the good guys and the Autobots, and they are intended to provide comic relief; their traits raise the specter of stereotype's. And it is most notable when you see Jar Jar Bink's, the clumsy, broken-English speaking Alien from "Star Wars:The Phantom Menace," was criticized. One fan called the Transformers twins Jar Jar Bots in a blog he posted online. What is wrong with these people is my question? Why can't people just go to see a movie as entertainment anymore without reading all this noncense into it? Can't you just watch a movie anymore for fun? Why do they have to bring race and putting that kind of thing into it? Nobody would go there if somebody like that reporter hadn't mentioned it in the first place. Get a real life dude. Have fun for once. Just watch the movie for what they made it for good fun. I enjoyed it. It was a hour and 50 minutes of fantasy cut and dry. Enjoy it and leave it at that. Geezzeeee

Hello Cookie...racism, stereotyping, and bigotry have become such sensitive subjects the world over that some see it in every little thing, even when it does not exist! It is over-used, that anger, in my opinion. We all know it exists, yes, but not in every innocent little thing. I do believe some use it, like with these robots, to keep the issue and their own personal anger and bias alive. And that is a shame. Karen
