"Diversity" on the Office

A bit after the 14-minute mark, the Michael Scott's (Steve Carell) "Mexican" references to Oscar Martinez (Cuban-American actor, Oscar Nuñez) are utterly Tex[t]-Mextian! 

Oscar's character has appeared as both "Mexican" and "Bolivian" on the show--not that one turns to NBC for national or ethnic sensitivity.  The episode, written by B. J. Novak, is by turns pathetic and hilarious.  Must-See TV for anyone doing ethnic studies.
