    TV shows aren't racist, people are.

    I think it's all becoming rediculous and getting out of hand...... You can't change history...but you can the future...
    People have been making offensive blonde jokes for years...Are any offensive.? No...I think most all humour is brilliant...what I don't find funny I ignore ..

    Yes. Blonde jokes have been around for years.

    I agree just going too far with it.

    Same holds true for all the comments about Jews being wealthy, being cheap and having big noses.  Have you ever seen some Italians?  Some of them have big noses to, as do Arabs.

    Very true.  It takes a lot to change things about yourself.  I think it can be done, but there are some things that you can never change.

    I had a black student tell me I didn't look Jewish. I told him it was offensive and he apologised.

    I almost always hear that when someone has the temerity to even ask what I am and I tell them I'm Jewish.  I usually just smile and say I've had my horns removed.

    I doubt it.
    It probably has more to do with advertising revenues.

    No channels have claimed ad revenue declined. 

    I know ratings for these shows have not decreased.   (Live PD and COPS are very popular)

    The cartoon Paw Patrol is one of the most popular here with the little ones.

    How about a non-offensive cop show called 'Live Traffic-Cop'?
