State farm had a commercial that had an interracial couple that made the twitter feed go all racist.


Racists were enraged by a State Farm ad which depicted a Black man proposing marriage to a White (wo)man. The ad was introduced several days before Christmas and promoted marriage.


The story points this out to be how the racism issue could get worse under a Trump admin. And the story also points out that Trump hasn't denounced racism and he has hired people who harbor racist ideologies.


Many of the racist tweets were from Donald Trump supporters. “Seriously, it’s ridiculous Trump’s America, now. We gotta be firm on this,” Brenda Gale tweeted.

The ad is another example of how racism and bigotry could take a turn for the worse under the Trump administration. The president-elect has yet to denounce racism and has hired several members to his staff who have racist ideologies.

Let's keep in mind that we've seen an uptick of people being called out for setting up these tragedies just to help their role as the victim.

There are Trump supporters that are racist. I wouldn't dare to say that a majority are racist and I'd question anyone willing. How about we stop focusing on that *expletive* and focus on racism as a whole. Oh wait because we are supposed to strawman him.

There is no proof in this story to who and how they arrived at the fact this is a Trump thing. And if Trump same supporters are racist does that mean I am for being more in favor of Trump than HRC?

Seems silly to blame the Twitter ramblings about a TV commercial on Trump, HRC already lost.

They dont even have evidence that the criticisms took place. Let alone if from Trump supporters.

I was at a party a few months ago where an acquaintance said there are more blacks on TV because of Obama. I thought that was a ridiculous thing to say. We're seeing more interracial couples, blacks and Latinos in commercials because corporate marketing executives are finally recognizing they make-up a good portion of their market. It's the same thing when advertisers used to market kitchen and home cleaning products only to women. It's ridiculous to think Trump or Obama has anything to do with it.

I was watching the Hulu recently and saw a diamond commercial. I noticed that they didn't even talk about marriage like they used to(like every diamond commercial ever) it was a subtle "you don't have to get married to need a diamond" message. Thought it was kinda funny. Kinda off topic, but commercials in general got me thinking about that one commercial.

Racists say and do racist things.
Why start a thread about racists being racist?

It's just straight up stupid.

The interracial family in the Cheerios commercial in 2013 received a lot of attacks as well. Can't blame that on Trump and can't blame this on Trump. The fact is, haters are gonna hate. And quite frankly, most haters don't ID their political affiliation or who they voted for.

Don't forget about twitter and face book..I never knew these were news sources.. and I never imagined that the news would write stories with these two social media outlets used as part of their sources. Amazing how times change...

thanks,

Disgusting. Maybe we should dump these racists along with SJWs in a deserted island. Since SJWs are looking for racists, they will get what they wanted.

The patients are taking over the asylum. It's like a giant room filled with funhouse mirrors. Up is down, down is sideways. Mad world.

Perhaps because things aren't symbols in the way they used to be. A diamond, formed by heat, pressure, and time, was a symbol of the strength of marital union. Now it's just bling.

One of the biggest racists who publicly advocated against interracial marriage and relationships is being hailed as a hero by many and tops the lists as one of the most important people who died in 2016.



It would be nice to think such hatred and intolerance died with him and his generation but sadly there are millions of Muslims who still feel the same way.

I agree with you that that boxer was racist and obnoxious with it.

I wonder if that ad had shown an image of a white man and black woman would it have made any difference?

Probably not.

Is this like the story a white Trump supporter supposedly set fire to a church then the investigation lead to the mostly likely culprit was a member of the church? I don't think he was white either.
