Would like your opinion on this ad that is causing a stir as being racist:
Pepsi has stopped this ad from showing.
Im just wondering, while they were coming up with the idea and filming it, didn't anybody
raise any red flags prior to releasing it to the public?
What actually is the message of this ad anyway?
Blacks and goats beat up on poor blonde white women?
How is this commercial remotely related to a soft drink?
To call it racist must mean there is a purposeful agenda behind it.
Which, at this moment, there is no proof of.
Apparently the Pepsi company not only offends blacks but also gays.
Glad I don't drink that garbage.

I can't imagine too many people in the black community would find this funny. Especially as an ad for a product that already has a "ghetto" reputation and is made with the intent to be broadcast to the nation at large. Playing it off as a," It's Tyler Perry and he's black,!" situation is incredibly limiting and unfair.
