Yeah, it's kinda hard to tell because we can't hear his Hindi accent through the two-dimensional presentation here. For all WE know, PHB is Turkish, Slavic, or Armenian. Would it matter if we KNEW? This is about CHARACTERS and how they behave according to their !$%*!$%*!$%*!$ not about ethnic GROUPS. PC is destroying the world with its poison. The madness needs to stop.
BTW, the misuse of the word(s) "offend", "offended", etc. simply astounds me. It has become the catch-all phrase for anyone (minority or not) to scream "foul" as if the world owes them something. Sometimes - actually most of the time - the truth hurts. Deal with it.
I'm Indian, and I'm NOT offended. In fact, it's Toxidude's over-sensitivity that offends me!
Asok is an intern and PHB is an insensitive twit. PHB could've just as easily made that comment to Dilbert if he were assigning the task to him... and it still would've fit. He did say "DEPENDING on your religious views..."
