    @mickbobcat - yeah there was some dialogue in The Germans episode.

    Major: And throughout the morning she kept referring to the Indians as n*****s. No, no, I said, n*****s are the West Indians. These people are wogs.

    Sure, there are some offensive words spoken but if we look at the context we can see that it is about an old guy who was living in the past (the Major). Previous generations may be bigoted but we don't have to be, that's what it was kinda saying. But activists seem to be incapable of nuance or rationality. They see or hear a word and then have an outburst, demand it to be cut or they'll throw their toys out the pram.
