    Those men of color respect and probably want to bang the models.


    You can find something "racist" in just about anything if you try. Is a picture of two white people, or two black people, discriminating against the "missing" race? In professional sports, people tend to root for the person who they identify with: the team with the name of their city or state (even if everyone on the team is from somewhere else), the person who is the same race as you (fair or not), etc. I usually root for the team or person who is trying harder, and I often switch to the other side halfway through the game. It's fun and interesting to see photos of sexy models in the company of "exotic" people. If the locals were made to look stupid and inferior that would be offensive. If you just think the models "stand out" as special, well, heck, that's their job! In a high tech world, I think the "old world" exotic people are really interesting to look at. Is basketball racist because the best players are black? That's just life.

    Abe, We are?


    well, american girls are portayded as dumb pieces of meat not allowed to say anything at all.

    @ abe

    What's wrong with meat? I think this prejudice against meat is part of our puritanical heritage. The human body is a miraculous creation. The spiritual and the sensual are one and the same. ... I'm an American boy, and I ENJOY being made out of meat! And we'd all be better off if the people who pretend to know everything would stop speaking for a while.
