DAILYKENN.com -- I had no idea this guy existed until now. Actually, Apu doesn't exist. He's an animated Simpson's character; the heavily accented South Asian owner of Kwik-E-Mart.
It appears that fictional character's accent stereotypes South Asians leading to bullying and self-loathing.
Voice actor Hank Azaria says he may end his tenure playing the role of Apu.
Now, if we can convince the political correction officers to end their stereotyping of white people as racists with a long history of committing genocide and slavery when, in reality, white people have enhanced the lives of all with innovative inventions, creating epidemic-defeating health care technologies, and wealth. In the aggregate whites are the most benevolent, empathetic and altruist people on earth.
White people are immersed in guilt by social engineers as a technique to convince them to accommodate invading people groups. That invasion will decimate then destroy Western culture which is the end objective of cultural Marxism; the ultimate form of racism.
Stereotyping Southern Americans is perfectly fine with social engineers. Bullying and self-loathing of the Bubba culture is even encouraged.
Stereotyping, we are led to believe, is something whites do to others; never vice versa. That is a stereotype.

Hank Azaria is ready to stop voicing Kwik-E-Mart owner Apu on “The Simpsons” in the wake of criticism that it’s a stereotype.
Azaria said on Tuesday’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” that he hopes the Fox animated show makes a change, and he’s willing to step aside if necessary.
Azaria said: “I’m perfectly willing and happy to step aside or help transition it into something new. I really hope that’s what ‘The Simpsons’ does.”
He added: “It just feels like the right thing to do.”
People of South Asian heritage have criticized the heavily accented Apu for reinforcing stereotypes they say lead to bullying and self-loathing. Azaria said it makes him sad if anyone was bullied because of Apu. He said he “wanted to spread laughter and joy with this character.”
