    I've been to several countries where they have had films that depict Americans as buffoons. Was I offended? Not really, because I know that there are a few Americans who travel abroad that act like they are better than everyone else, which is why in Europe, you sometimes hear the term "ugly American".

    And, I don't get bent out of shape when movies show actual depictions of what drug dealers and criminals are like in the ghetto, because that is what it is like.

    I don't even get offended by movies like "Blazing Saddles", because I understand it is satire, and making fun of all the racist crap that can go on.

    However.........................there are certain films that depict minorities in a bad light that can be considered racist. When I've seen those, I simply stop watching and find something else to do.

    I'm not offended by anything others say or do. It's why I despise this snowflake mentality some keep pushing.

    Wow...............in the first sentence, you say that you aren't offended by anything others say or do. In the very next sentence, you contradict yourself.

    If you're not offended by anything others say or do, then them having a snowflake mentality and pushing it shouldn't bother you either.

    You're a Trump supporter, aren't you?
