POLL: Is Jimmy Kimmel's "Captain Mexico" Parody Offensive?

A few days ago on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the talk show host aired a parody of the big summer blockbuster Captain America using the always amusing Guillermo (one of Kimmel's trusty comic foils of Mexican descent) for the bit.

In Captain Mexico, in place of super soldier Chris Evans, Guillermo emerges with an outfit representing the colors of the Mexican flag. The sketch ignited the fury of many Mexicans, with some media outlets calling it yet another jab at the Latino group, TV Azteca's national news program even lambasted the sketch saying, "Once again they laugh at Mexicans."
Still others insist the sketch was an innocent parody that wasn't intended to incite anger.
