"You guys don't drink good wine, that is acting white. Here's the liquor you like. Now drink up nappy heads" I find it disgusting and the lyrics to the song I posted earlier go into this in detail.
    White men have better things to worry about than being made fun of. Your right we don't notice and probably never have.

    Interesting. I have not watched the video as I am at work and cannot, but based on your description in the original post I first presumed that you thought the commercial was racist against whites because they were portrayed as nerdy/untrendy while the blacks were portrayed as the cool trendy people that everybody else should want to emulate.

    ETA: What I now take from your posting this thread is that advertising should use glass-like people with no color whatsoever, lest they be accused of racism because they were forced to use a human with a distinctive coloring of some sort.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Hmmmm. I think maybe you're too focused on race. I don't think I would've even noticed their races without a prompting like yours. It's so normal to see different races mixing it up at places.
