CBS SITCOM OFFENDS NATIVE AMERICANS

Megan McCarthy's CBS sitcom, Mike & Molly, is being called offensive by a Native American group.

    In case you missed it, Mike's mother on the show -- an Archie Bunker type -- says, "Arizona? Why would I move to Arizona? It's nothing but a furnace full of drunk Indians."

    The joke isn't sitting well in the Native American community. A rep for the Navajo Nation tells reporters, "For a show like this displaying us in a negative light is just unacceptable, they are taking a shot at the entire state of Arizona and its indigenous people."

Truth is - they're right.  Alcoholism is a huge problem in Native American culture. But, you know family friendly CBS wouldn't dare make a statement like this about the black community's love affair with crack, malt liquor and purple drank.  

On a side note, I'm also offended by CBS, but not for racism...I'm offended that they put shows on TV like the Big Bang Theory...probably the dumbest show every produced - and they call it a comedy.  Does anyone actually think that show is funny?  Can you introduce me to that person?  I have a few words I need to share with them.

I watch Big Bang Theory all the time and have realised that you actually have to be in a scientific field or be a nerd to really enjoy it. A lot of the humor used is situational and in some cases too smart for the general public to understand. no offense guys.

A lot of people think The Big Bang Theory is funny. Idk, guess you have to be in a certain age demographic to see the humor.
