Poor Kazakhstan

By Cassandra D

As someone who also resides in a frequently maligned and harshly caricatured state, I can understand why the good folks of Kazakhstan are more than a bit miffed at Ali G. [And thanks to the NPR audio link, I'm now stuck with the lovely song "Throw the Jew Down the Well" running through my head...]

Of course, the residents of this frequently maligned and harshly caricatured state (myself included) frequently malign and harshly caricature the state immediately to our east.

I bet the Kazakhistanis who complain about Ali G have told more than a few Uzbekistan jokes.

Don't forget harsh caricaturization of that state to our south. For instance, what separates Oklahoma from total ignorance? The Red River. Why doesn't Texas fall into the Gulf of Mexico? Texas sucks!! Heh heh heh...
