Special guest Jack Kukoda (Community, The Onion) blows Andrew’s mind by introducing him to various cartoons and agrees that Bobby’s World is pretty racist. Boycott Howie Mandel and make sure to leave us a message about anything you think is racist at (323) 389-RACE.

Kukoda is referring to the Ferengi. No, they were not all played by Jewish people (in fact, the first Ferengi we ever see is a played by a Spanish actor). They were introduced in The Next Generation, not the Original Series. Whether or not they are a Jewish stereotype is highly debatable. We do know they were introduced as a critique of capitalism.
