If anyone cares to hear my two cents:
.. I thought Chakotays ethnic rants were pretty tame.... well tame when you compare it to the times they let Avery Brooks loose with a pen in DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars" with his black power civil right nonsense..
Seriously.. as much as i love DS9 and consider it probably the best of the "new era" Star Trek, those few episodes with Avery Brooks voicing his mind instead of opening it were pretty hideous....... I imagine Gene Roddenberry must have cut wind in his grave..
