    I didn't really think they were racist, as I thought they were parodying youth culture in general.

    I'm not sure about whether they were rasist though. I'll get back to you on that one :p

    Lots of people in the theater we were in laugh at every thing they said and did, and that was the point. I doubt very much the writers sat down and assigned race to each Bot and Con.
    Some people are so PC, they'll read into anything and everything.

    Whenever attempting to post about a topic of such weight, it helps to know how to spell.

    The Twins represent 90% of today's youth. Deal with it.

    If anything I thought they were meant to parody white kids pretending to be gangsta'.

    That Yahoo article mentions the words "racism" and "chevrolet" together far too often for GMs comfort. I wouldn't be surprised if they threaten to pull sponsorship from any future films.

    I suppose I can see how they were seen as racist. But more than anything they were just stupid wastes of screen time in my eyes.
