    [FOR THE RECORD] - I am African American (so this post doesn't sound like a white guy that's being racist).....
    Hahahhahahhahah! I'm still waiting to read about the info (1st probably from TMZ) where Jessie Jackson cites his "comments" about Skidz and Mudflap; Gold teeth, "ghetto speech patterns", and the inability to read...hahahahahaha! When I saw this in the movie, I couldn't stop laughing, and WHITE people were turning around, looking at me like I'd lost my mind. I'm sorry, but that sh*t was FUNNY to me. Bay made the twins more stereotypically "ignorant" than many HUMAN characters I've seen in movies! Personally, I found that sh*t HIGHLY amusing, but I can also envision the "hair trigger" reactions from many "black power" reactionaries out there. It's only a matter of time before some one from the BLACK celebrity arena has something [politically based] to say about those 2 characters, but I personally found them funny as all get out, and I'M black!

    I'm latino, and didn't give two shits about Leo's "stereotyped" latino behavior.

    My grandmother used to tell me a story about taking my Dad (who was a kid at the time) to see "Blazing Saddles" in the theater.

    They went to a theater in a predominately African-American part of town, and were the only white people there. (Side note: Why is "White People" ok but "Black People" is not? :wtf: ) Que major awkwardness until every human being in the theater cracked up at the "racist" humor.

    "Racial" humor is a far cry from "Racist" humor. Things are only as "offensive" as one makes them out to be. Though maybe I, as a white guy, can't make such a comment? :peoples: 

    And I agree that The Twins aren't necessarily "Black" stereotypes, but rather "Street/Ghetto/Gangsta Wannabe" stereotypes.

    I thought their heads gave them a "backwood's inbred" kind of look.
