I'll agree to disagree about whether or not it is a tasteless joke but, if it was meant in truth, I won't ignore ignorant and racist comments by bigots.

And I agree, the build is absolutely incredible...I think it looks great.

Oh, although I'd love an E9x M3...the e28 M5 is my supreme being.
I really hate how we live in a society that has knee-jerk responses to words instead of paying attention to the context of it. He has a blond-haired daughter, aryan is a perfectly acceptable word. I feel like our society could loosen our collective sphincters about the ridiculous political correctness that plagues us; it makes us feel like we have to tip-toe around words and it actually perpetuates negative connotations about people that have blonde hair and blue eyes. "I feel uncomfortable being around him because he looks like the perfect aryan" is what I've heard people say about someone I know that's blond and has blue-eyes, and it's a sort of perverse political correctness that actually keeps a bigoted mindset towards people that aren't minorities. Let people say what they want.
