    I can say with relative certainty that if some white bread Ad agency offered that commercial it would be lambasted.

    1.) simply not true Id say this type of blanket thinking is part of the issue.
    Are there some people that probably are like this? yes of course. SHould they represent all of minorities, absolutely not. Thats equal as moronic as the person crying false racism.

    2.)uhm but in this case reality proves you wrong since this was done by black people and it was still "lambasted"

    did you not read the OP?

    Why are young black men in the same police line up with an abusive woman hating goat? Is there a message there?
    from my understanding they are all members of the same group and they created the goat character

    See the response RE Barrack The Magic Negro? Now add in a white commentator saying this about Donovan McNabb (racist) vs a black player and teammate (not racist).

    No, you just need to lighten up and learn to take an attempt at humor as nothing more than an attempt at humor

    Jeepers, you do not know me well. I am a lot of things, but a humourless tight-assed uppity I am not.

    I laugh at poopie and fart jokes. I find humour in a lot of stereotyping and sex differences jokes. It takes a lot to offend me. I foud this commercial completely stupid, asinine, utterly retarded and misogynistic. I don't give a rat's behind if you think it's not not a poke at females because it's over the top. I completely disagree.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    again simply not true LOL

    you are judging the actions of morons and applying it too the group, you realize that type of thinking is equal to that of the morons right?

    id say th emjority familiar with it since every article i have found states the basic background info on it and people are still continuing to lambast it and even direct their basting towards the group they removed it from their site too

    that people often shape their views of something on the racial identity of the person producing it, and not it's actual content. Not sure if it applies here, but I doubt many of the people who took offence to it even know who Tyler the Creator is. After all, he's still largely underground and is best known for his show on adult swim.

    Mf Doom, was probably more prolific than Tyer when he was working closely with adult swim, and most of america still had absolutely no idea who he was
