    I hope I'm not the only one who noticed this, but Skids, even with his gold tooth, I found quite blatantly to be a "dumb hick" stereotype. Watching the movie for the first time, before all this racism mumbo-jumbo began, I thought "haha, one of them's a dumb hick and the other one thinks he's gangsta!"

    Funnily enough, it was dumb hick Skids who said the infamous line regarding illiteracy, although I suppose the statement still applied to both brothers.

    Note: "Dang-a-lang, cum owt 'n gich ur ahce crayme!"

    We really needed another thread about this?

    Stupid characters warrant countless stupid threads, I guess.:::shrugs:::

    While I agree with you, even that won't matter to the pitch fork carrying mob. Somehow it's ok for Larry the Cable Guy to portray a beat-up, old tow truck in 'Cars' with a stereotypical redneck persona but it's not ok in TF's. Double standards all over the place.

    I think if he did, the "ZOMG TWINZ IZ RAZIZT" chatter would have never taken off.

    i've been trying hard to follow all of the Skids/Mudflap threads closely, and have yet to see anyone mention that Skids isn't black.

    Not closely enough, apparently. I've it mentioned over and over again in those threads.
