Besides, is it okay if they were based on rednecks and not if they were based on black people? Still stereotyping...
No offense, but I've never understood this argument. Considering their much more tragic history in this country, it seems perfectly reasonable to me that we SHOULD be a lot more sensitive to them over other groups.

Why? treating people special because of their race is still discriminatory.
