Don't be racist! Be like Mario. He's an Italian plumber, created by Japanese people, who speaks English, and looks like a Mexican...jumps like a Black man and grabs coins like a Jew. What's not to love?
I don't give children and the elderly much leeway-the law of averages tells me that most of them will grow up to be stupid adults or grew up as stupid kids, so all the sympathy they might get for being immature or senile tends to go right out the window.
