I think that defending something like this on the grounds of "cultural heritage" is complete rubbish. As if cultural heritage and racism are somehow mutually exclusive.

I don't see how what in one country is an issue to own up to is somehow perfectly ok and harmless in another.

Speedy Gonzales, anyone?
Speedy Gonzales presents an interesting situation. He has been eliminated from the Warner Brothers "Looney Tunes" (they probably don't call it that anymore) and Cartoon Network catalog in the U.S. (not "America"). However, he and his compatriots are Cartoon Network Latin America's most popular character. Even some Latin American groups lament his banishment here in "the States." Maybe we go a bit too far with political correctness, I don't know. I do think it is a bit differnt than the case of this little stamp character.

I lived in Mexico for 2 years, and I only saw one black person the whole time, and I moved around quite a bit. I did see quite a bit white people living over there.

As part of my job, I have to keep track of ethnicity. When people answer hispanic, latino or mexican, I have to ask them are you white or black.

That is an interesting side question on who gets to set those standards and who enforces those standards.
