Racial Stereotyping in South Park

Animated television shows can take on serious issues just like live television shows. South Park is one of the many shows that confront cultural and societal issues head-on. South Park presents racial stereotypes as more comical than offensive, though to some they may still be considered offensive. South Park uses racial stereotypes in a way that makes fun of American pop culture, critiquing the use of such stereotypes in America.
