    Lego racist?

    So apparently, some Turks think Lego is racist.. Source; http://now.msn.com/lego-accused-of-r...?ocid=ansnow11

    What do you think?

    I personally am getting a lil sick & tired of these Muslims trying to find anything and everything they can as ammo to hate western culture, or hate on anyone who doesn't follow Islam. Everyday it seems they're finding out about something new around the world to get offended about. Even stuff that has been around for years, even decades. And they're just now bitching about it. (for lack of a better term).

    George Lucas is a massive racist, so I guess its not Lego's fault
    While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."

    That looks nothing like the Hagia Sophia... Like at all. And it's modeled after Jabba's palace in the movies for goodness' sake. And Jabba a terrorist? Come now, he was a gangster.
    Well 1, 2, 3, take my hand and come with me
    Because you look so fine
    And I really wanna make you mine

    Danes are usually racist without knowing it but in this case i do not see the resemblance nor place blame on those modelling after a film.

    This is like blaming EA for Portal 2 having "offensive anti-orphan" dialog.

    Those Turks can eat a big ol...bowl of carrots.

    I'm sick of people playing the race card. Stop causing drama and live your motherfludpucking lives. If you get offended so easily by everything around you, perhaps you should just isolate yourself from the rest of this terribly offensive and insensitive world.

    Sounds like they've been hitting the hookah a bit hard, it looks nothing like the Hagia Sophia.

    Buahahaha. Muslims are funny. LEGO should give them answer in which they will point how stupid such accusations are.

    Just look how he portrayed ewoks, as if they were some savage tribe. Everyone knows Ewoks are just as intelligent and well educated as Tatooinians.
