    OK, so far we have two votes for:

    Racial stereotyping =/= Racism

    Anybody disagree?

    It won't be considered racist if it's Herman Cain. But if that was Obama it would be very racist.

    Pokemon isn't racist as far as I know. You might want to ask an actual Pokemon how they feel about it though. I am not their spokeperson so I can't tell ya.
