BFD! Who cares? Everyone knows that it's a stupid stereotype. That's what makes it funny. It wasn't HILARIOUS or anything, and few people do take it seriously. Stupid stereotypes are actually a somewhat important part of American culture. I could see why Fukudome would be offended, however. He's not an American and doesn't realize that the shirt is supposed to celebrate him in Chicago, not target him.

BTW, whoever wrote the second article must be the worst journalist I've ever heard of. There is so much editorializing in it that I would disagree with it just for the sake of disagreement. I mean, come on, it's at least a little funny.
