Note to Xbox Live: This Is Chong, Not Cheech.

Reader Edfire77 sends this in. In the TV & Movies section of Xbox Live, one of the tiles points to movies celebrating Hispanic culture. Great. But this stoner is Tommy Chong, not Cheech Marin.

Chong's dad was a Chinese immigrant, his mom was of Scottish-Irish and French descent, and they all lived in Canada, which as we know has a very large buffer zone of semi-occupied space between it and actual Hispanic culture.


What's more, I have to ask why, even if they did get this right, they'd want to identify Hispanic Culture on Xbox Live with glassy-eyed stoner humor. That doesn't seem like it'd be any more sensitive than this, even if it was correct.
