But like I said, replace all their "Green blooded bastard" stuff with normal racist terms like calling Sulu "Yellow-skinned bastard" or Uhura "Negress", and these guys become a lot less sympathetic.

I mean, why should that sort of thing be tolerated just because Spock was an alien? What if they did do it to the non-white humans all the time?
Then the TV show wouldn't have aired.

Did they ever actually use "bastard" in TOS? Google says no. "Green blooded Hobgoblin" is the only TOS quote I can find.

While "Negress" and "Negro" are outdated are they really racist?
