    Or at least that must be the thinking of a group of "Asian-American activists" in Sacramento who managed to get Breakfast at Tiffany's pulled from a Screen on the Green movie series Saturday night.
    Mickey Rooney got heartburn when he learned why his 1961 film "Breakfast at Tiffany's" had been pulled for "Ratatouille" at East Sacramento's free Screen on the Green movie series Saturday night.

    "Ratatouille? Never heard of it!" Rooney, 87, said in his classic Brooklyn accent in a spirited phone interview from his southern California home this weekend.

    One of the most beloved and enduring movie actors in American history, Rooney was shocked to hear his comic role as Mr. Yunioshi, Audrey Hepburn's cantankerous upstairs neighbor, had been branded racist by several Asian American activists in Sacramento.


    More about that in a moment. First let me address one of the major problems we have in this country today. The love some groups have for hyphenating their race with "-American" is really getting on my last nerve. We used to "the melting pot" and groups that were here simply called themselves "Americans." Now, under the friggin guise of "multi-culturalism" and "diversity" (which actually means "disunity"-look it up I am serious) we have everyone breaking into little groups of hyphenated Americans.

    Let me tell you something, if you can't be proud enough to simply be an American then pack your fucking bags and go back to the shithole you or your forebears immigrated from. If being something besides a plain American isn't fucking good enough for you then you don't deserve to live here and myself and the rest of the plain old Americans would be very glad to be rid of your ungrateful ass.

    I am serious. If you don't like being labeled simply "American" then get the fuck outta my country.

    Back on topic.

    When a group has to go looking at a movie from 40+ years ago to find something to complain about they are really reaching. Are they angry an asian was played by a white man? Are they mad about his accent? His make-up? Turns out they are angry at that and more;

    CAPITAL (Council of Asian Pacific Islanders Together for Advocacy and Leadership), an umbrella group for more than 90 local organizations, told the Sacramento City Council that Rooney's buck-toothed Japanese character with thick glasses and exaggerated Asian accent perpetuated "offensive, derogatory and hateful racial stereotypes detrimental and destructive to our society."


    All I have to say about that is "Ah-So glasshopper you have learned well from your indock-nation at the People's University and your complaints will not go un-noticed."

    So in honor of this whiny group and Anti-Americans (how's THAT for hyphenating?) I present to you a clip of Mickey Rooney as Mr. Yunioshi from that classic, Breakfast at Tiffanys.
