"Fredo" and Chris Cuomo and Italian Americans [View all]

For those who are parsing that the term "Fredo" wasn't derogatory towards both Chris Cuomo and Italian Americans:

1) I wouldn't call the character, Fredo, in The Godfather as an exemplary representative of Italian Americans;

2) If CC had been labeled "Guido," would that have made a difference?

3) Italian Americans are only a couple of generations away from the status imposed upon Central and South Americans. (Remember WOP -- "without a passport" or "garlic eaters" in It's A Wonderful Life?)

Should the moniker of "Fredo" be excused when it's an insult against a group of AMERICANS?
