    Look at one interesting tidbit from the article.

    Um Nick Powers the man that wrote the article... Mirage/Dino, Wheeljack/Que and the Wreckers would like to have a word with you.

    By being the one who sounds like they know what they're talking about the most out of all that do not know what they're talking about.

    By causing controversy that gets people to read the websites. No, seriously it is.

    As for the article - being a Mixed (I'm a literal mutt), Partial Albino Female - it offends me that they guy would just throw out this junk.

    What next they had Sentinel kill Ironhide because he was black? Look he is black in color that must be why!!!

    The "Raghead" comment is especially nuts. Megatron had the cowl because his face was jacked up. I never once thought "Oh, he's a take on Arabs".

    I think Mr. Powers is the one who is projecting his racism onto things that were never intended to be racist.

    A bigger more badass Dr. Doom is who came to my mind.

    So is Sentinel a native American stereotype because he has a beard and is almost all red?

    Er, wait, Native American stereotypes don't have facial hair...

    Yeah, I can see that.

    I, however - like many others - just went "Oh hey there's Megatron."

    By this guy's logic - yes.

    I'm wondering if Mr. Powers was on something when he watched the movie or wrote this article (possibly both).

    This article has lost all credibility for one reason.

    "The movie shows that war is the answer to everything."

    IT'S F***ING TRANSFORMERS. THE WHOLE STORY OF THIS FRANCHISE IS AUTOBOTS VS. DECEPTICONS. WHAT DID THESE DIPSH*TS EXPECT? DID THEY WANT MEGATRON AND OPTIMUS HAVING A F*CKING TEA PARTY?!?!? MEGATRON IS NOT WEARING A RAG. IT'S A F*CKING CLOAK TO COVER THE BLASTED RIGHT SIDE OF HIS FACE! WHY MUST EVERYONE PURPOSLEY LOOK FOR THINGS TO HATE ON IN MOVIES, INSTED OF JUST ENJOYING THEM!!

    Now that my rage is over, we can now all agree, that this article is horsecrap

    Agreed!

    But it's nothing particularly unique to DOTM. It's essentially true of all Michael Bay films.

    Everything else he says is also true. You know it is.

    I just get so tired of people who project world politics onto things that have absolutely nothing to do with them.
