Chinese Laundromat

I've been playing L.A. Noire recently. The game is set in Los Angeles during the late 40's and you play a police detective solving crimes. The game is really good. It is published by Rockstar Games, the same company that did Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption.

The one thing I did notice was that there are a lot of stereotypes. I'm not sure if that's how society was like 60 years ago but almost all the male characters are wife-beaters and many of the white characters are totally racist. One of the cases/storyline also brought me to a laundromat (Superior Laundry) and the owner is Chinese. Sigh...
