    When the Autobots are changed into their human forms in, "Human Error, Part 1," why is Bumblebee Ethiopian while the rest of his team are all Caucasian?

    Man, what's with you? First you think the Twins are "Persian", and now Bumblebee is Ethiopian? Can you go back to talking about Rodimus or something?
