Come Fly With Me was awesome.

My favourite characters were Taj and the Japanese 'girls' to those who've seen it But I wouldn't say it's racist. As for little Britain and 70s comedies, I haven't seen them

Ahh my dad used to watch Love Thy Neighbour when he came to England. Perhaps since we've come a long way from the 70s in terms of racial acceptance and the establishment of diversity, it's 'fine' to satirise and stereotype people in a light-hearted way.

i think Love Thy Neighbour became infamous for being very racist toward particularly black people. i wonder though watching david walliams blacking up and mocking an african accent, or making his face look' chinese' - why this is not deemd racist?

Yes we've come a long way like ignoring Asian pedophile gangs out of fear on being called racist, calling the police on 14 year old girl students if they say they can't understand the English of their non-British student colleagues, white British minority in London, jailing people for tube rants about this, becoming the "El Dorado for immigrants" (Mayor of Calais) calling then LSE racist when the accidentally send out a letter with "Kung Fu Panda" as the recipient to everyone.

We've come a long way [in systematic brainwashing and mind control.]

Also inability to see world leaders referring to New World Order, inability to see that we took out all the strong Arab leaders like Saddam Hussein leading to ISIS. Inability to see that Russia has done nothing yet they are "the enemy". Refusal to see Jewish power in America.

We have come a long way in brainwashing and systematic mind control.
