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.
Well, the line up has the sterotypical gangbanger and the goat supposedly has the same time of persona. Saying the term "snitches get stitches" etc,
which has been popularized by street gangs & thugs, etc.
If you want that character to disappear from media whether it be movies, commercials, books, etc.
You ought to eliminate it in real life. And by that, I mean, black people ought to not be part of those groups anymore. Simple as that. No different
than the media creating a "White skin head" character. Which happens time to time.
White people tend to ostracize their own that act like dumbass racist skinheads, so if the black community doesn't condemn their youth from trying to
be famous gangbangers, then, I don't know what to say.
Not trying to be racist about it, just pointing out hard truths.
