    It's all kinda racist , isn't it ?

    as far as saying it mocked American people for believing Borat and Kazakhs are like that is like saying " Amos 'n' Andy "  is ok because it mocked the white perception of black people.

    Of course not. But it seems that the whole humor of it goes over some peoples' (like @u_bin_called) heads. Borat doesn't mock the Kazakh people, but rather the ignorant perception that Westerners, particularly Americans, have on what the Kazakh culture is. The people Baron Cohen encounters while portraying his Borat character actually think he's real. The only thing more absurd than Borat is believing it.

    That's not the point. He accurately depicts the culture of the US.

    isn't it interesting how Sascha Baron Cohen has made so much money and gotten so famous by making fun of "foreigners" and promoting all manner of  racial and ethnic stereotypes?....

    Of course not. But that is how many republicans, those unable to even find most countries on a world map, see it however.
