"Rico Foz, executive vice president of the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns, said the group was demanding that the ABC television network immediately edit out the controversial scene..."Now, I am on record (its comment #7) that I believe that racism influenced the crafting of the remarks but c'mon, you want to delete it?
