    right, all we can offer on the topic is various assumptions. That's because we don't have any real measurement for how many people know who he is. Both of us can only draw inferences on the topic and attempt to support them with related evidence

    except for the fact that its still getting blasted with this info out there and the black group themselves are being blasted lol

    You have the assumption that maybe people didnt know in the beginning with zero evidence but i admit, likely.
    im stating facts that many people do know now, are still blasting it and even blasting the black group directly and not through mt. dew.

    from your quote:

    Yes. But he is not "some liberal black professor." Interesting you added that fabrication. I bet it was all about emphasis, eh?
    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.

    Depends: I imagine Mountain Dew is courting a demographic that isn't hypersensitive about such things, and embraces an image associated with risk to appeal to it.

    But over all, I'm not seeing anything wrong with the add, besides it just generally sucking.

    He is black. Did you ever see his picture, or did you just draw conclusions from his name?

    Bueller?

    Lol, first you show the persistent ignorance still surrounding the "magic negro" comment by trying to debunk me, then you make some vague accusation of racism, because the guy had a white sounding name

    Oy vey~!!!

    He is:
    a) half-black
    b) not a "liberal professor"

    You fail at facts.
    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.

    I agree. It's incomprehensible this idiotic commercial got past all the hurdles to the point that it was made. It's marginally racist and absolutely not funny. It's borderline surreal.

    Yeah, but what about the other people that are subjected to watching this **** on national TV? Like I said, lines should not be crossed.

    It's all in the skin tone?

    So - though my two sons have the same father - one has light skin like me . . . and the other has dark skin like his father. You think they're different 'races' because of the little skintone discrepancy?
