Not to pick on Rocky, but I don't find it hard to believe someone could be
offended. Making any demographic the target of attempted genocide could
make for some hard feelings. Any reference to that time and situation
could bring up those feelings.
Heck, from what I've heard, southerners still have feelings about the
civil war, and that wasn't as bad (from what I've heard) and it was a
lot longer ago.
