Not at all. I think people can be overly sensitive about this kind of thing(please, no bad jokes/insults). I mean, it's not an insult in any way to anyone, so anyone who finds THAT offensive probably says, whenever you even mention the word "gay" in any sense, immediately responds, "What's wrong with being gay? Huh?"

Anyway, my point is that not EVERYTHING signifying race these days has to be offensive, because that what it seems like.

If this gets turned into a controvers, all I know is, it'll be the stupidest one yet.

Honestly, the first thing I thought of was this being a shot at Sammy Sosa's whole thing at Capitol Hill.

About the only thing even slightly offensive would be the marginalization of the sacred rising-sun flag image in an advertisement. Other than that, nope. Nada. You tellin' me that folks are ticked off by this? Methinks folks need new hobbies.

I was about to say....that's the only thing that could possibly be offensive with this-and it shouldn't be.

You offend me.

The advertisement doesn't. I actually thought it was kind of funny.

Is there a stink being raised about this, or what's the deal?

Yeah, the article is here: http://www.on205th.com/2008/01/chicago-cub...-offending.html

I realized that I already posted here, but I thought what I was supposed to be offended by the translator bit, not the flag bit. I didn't realize the player was Japanese. In that case, it's in pretty poor taste.

I'm offended by it, because it features the Cubs (I'm a Brewers fan). Also, there is no conceivable way I could try to pronounce that guy's name without offending someone.

FOO KOO DOH MAY :D

About as necessary as your idiotic gay analogy. If someone ever decides to do a top 50 list of the most :censored:-ed up comments ever posted on this board you're going to take up at least 20 spots. Not that that there's anything wrong with that...

On topic, I don't see a thing wrong with the ad.
