In case you've been thinking, "we've come a long way, baby," a friend sent me the link to this photo and story from TMZ:
The OCA -- a group "dedicated to advancing the social, political and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans" -- is fuming at this photo of Miley and pals for using what they have deemed an offensive, stereotypical gesture.

The OCA sent us this statement: "The photograph of Miley Cyrus and other individuals slanting their eyes currently circulating the Internet is offensive to the Asian Pacific American community and sets a terrible example for her many young fans. This image falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent. . . . The inclusion of an Asian Pacific American individual in the photo does not make it acceptable."

I have never thought she was appropriate for young girls now we have another reason to add why.

One more reason I want to puke every time I see a Hannah Montana item. What in the world did the Asian man in the photo think of that? Bleh.

Well, it is interesting that the Asian man is the ONLY one not exhibiting the abnormal behavior!
