Even Short Circuit and Breakfast at Tiffany's now carry warnings on Sky about their racial stereotypes and attitudes. Its getting a bit out of hand now.

Don't get me wrong, as out of hand as it is getting, I'd rather have warnings than having content cut.

Yep - unless at the time it was made it was intended to offend they I think a warning about it is suitable.

You do understand that the world has changed a lot in the last 50 years and attitudes to what was acceptable then might not be acceptable now thus that is why they come with a warning which l am sure to the majority of viewers is perfectly reasonable.
