    I don't know any Alistars for some reason. I do know of people called Ali however, but they are all Muslim. I have a feeling he may have retracted the racism after realizing how much racism Muslims were getting.
    He doesn't seem like a typical Muslim to me, he just seems like a white guy acting gangster.

    So you don't think it's true that I thought Ali stood for Alistair? I have known Alistairs in life who have referred to themselves as Ali.

    I always thought Ali G was a stereotype of British Muslims (probably Pakistanis), hence the name "Ali". Ali G fits the stereotypical image of British Pakistanis very easily too.
    No, he was a caricature.
