    It's not an issue that Pacino was cast as a Jew. The problem is the whole stereotype of the portral. It's shallow and offensive.
    Pacino's portrayal is an offensive stereotype. Not since Judd Hirsch oy-veyed his way though Independence Day have I been so struck by this level of stereotyping. It's offensive.
    I'm not sure if this is going to resonate with this audience, but I've got to put it out there.
