I think Emme's claim of fatness being the "last acceptable prejudice" is somewhat true. Some people are still racist but those people are looked at as totally ignorant. It is Not acceptable in be racist in our society anymore. Yet it does seem somewhat acceptable to people to be prejudice against obesity. Weil on supports this point in part because she's white. Holliday however says nothing and probably doesn't think the statement is true because she is African American and also older. She was an actress when African Americans were not that commonly seen in film. She probably experiences racism or notices it while the other two don't because they're white. Emme's statement is definitely problematic because I think a lot of people feel that they're made fun of or prejudiced against and it's looked at as acceptable. Like people with psychiatric problems; while this isn't a physical trait pople still look at these people as 'crazy' and that's accepted. People who are handicapped are also prejudiced against in some ways and movies and shows attack them to make people laugh like in South Park's "Special Olympics" episode. I think it is completely unacceptable to judge anyone by their appearance or be prejudiced against a specific group or type of person.
We can account for difference by recognizing it but not making fun of it or judging the characteristic that makes someone different. I think we can add humor into it to a certain extent but when we don't promote positive self image of the person it makes it offensive and hurtful.
