APU IS A WHITE GUY DOING AN IMPRESSION OF A WHITE GUY MAKING FUN OF MY FATHER.  According to the HuffPo article "Is It Time To Retire Apu?”, Hank Azaria saw my video about Mindy Kaling & South Asian representation from Totally Biased and that line affected him. (The internet is amazing!)

"A video circulating online got to him, featuring Kondabolu…The actor credits the monologue with stirring his first misgivings. “If the only representation of Jews in our culture was Robin Williams’ impression of a Yiddish guy [from “The Birdcage,” starring both Williams and Azaria], I guess I might be upset with that too,” Azaria says.”

This has opened up a nice dialogue. Much more than I ever expected and I appreciate the fact Hank Azaria was willing to talk about it. 

P.S. I LOVE THE SIMPSONS AND I ALWAYS WILL.

I’m excited about “Every Simpsons Ever” on FXX…but still have some things to say about Apu. 

To fully appreciatte the beauty of how meta GSNK really is, you have to understand that not only every character is a desconstruction of a common shoujo manga trope, but also that every single ship in that series is based on a series of misunderstadings due to lack of communication which ALONE is the most common shoujo manga trope of all.
