The fact that the band who performed the song is British, has zero relevance and is not germain to the discussion... in my opinion.
So one song is the theme to a break out comedy that defined "blackness" for much of America in the 70s. The other is a random pop song that uses a chinese word in its chorus. But you see similarities. Also, you think we're in a "way too easy to offend era". I hate to break it to you, but you are an example of the era.
