Apu rules

Which Simpsons character doesn't insult some group?
Apu is in the spotlight now.
Let us praise Apu.
Apu is not a cultural separatist but an American, with American friends of all ethnicities with whom he shares a common culture—in parallel with the culture of his South Indian roots. He honors his origins by marrying his harridan mother’s choice of bride, and his American friends celebrate the Indian wedding. He had been Springfield’s most sought-after bachelor, because—caricature alert!—he has an advanced degree and his own business. He also drives an eye-catching Pontiac Firebird.
