Spot the difference


OK, so we all know that Borat is humiliatingly, career-endingly unfunny (one trick too many for one-trick pony Sacha Double-Barelled) - but can anyone explain why the 'character' isn't roundly condemned for being as unacceptably racist as the one-dimensional stereotypes from 70s sitcoms such as Mind Your Language? (Could it be because Baron Cohen is middle class, I wonder?)
