There you go. It doesn't matter if you are white, black, asian or another species. If you are a Commie, Rambo will kill your ass!

For the sake of argument, couldn't it then be said "He's a capitalist kicking Asian arses."

Not that that is any more fitting. I don't care who Rambo is killing, they've usually done something to warrant it. You know, like... drawing first blood.

Haha, oh well.

Actually, now that I think about it, in First Blood Rambo was killing rural US police officers! I guess everyone is only considering the sequels.

What about First Blood where he killed the National Guard and local police?
What about Rambo III where he was in Afghanistan killings Boris?

The first Movie was first blood, and he was killing local police and the national guard.

I know, I mentioned that in another comment. The people who say he is racist are simply looking to stir up emotions. You'll find people doing that everywhere.

Pretty sure he didn't kill anybody in first blood but the guy who he chucked a rock at who then fell outta the chopper.

Though I think he set a trap too... Either way.. he didn't do nuthin..

He wounded the Deputies, but at the end he shot up the Sheriff with a machine gun. Rambo shot the Sheriff but he didn't shoot no deputy.
