    offensive to both races commercial

    I have been watching football today and saw this add for the first time. IMO it is racist in every way. The white guy is portrayed as a goofy little nerd while the black couple look cool and trendy. Conversely the black couple is also portrayed as preferring fortified liquor products to fine wine. I can't believe this is on the air.

    I think far too many people look for racism where there is none. Including this commercial, there is no racism.

    So you don't think blacks being portrayed as people who are not sophisticated enough to enjoy fine wine is racist? Just give them their fortified liquor and they will be happy? I disagree.

    A black stereotype is that all they need is a 40 to be happy. This plays right into that and the portrayal of a white person who enjoys fine wine is a bit offensive too.

    Again people like yourself can see racism in a SPCA commercial. Doesn't mean there is any.

    I respect your opinion on this and that is why I asked the question. Thank you for your answer I just disagree. No need to try and berate me for my opinion though.

    I like it. The commercial I mean. Short, Sweet and to the point. I see nothing racist about it. I think it is an excellent commercial. Although I prefer beer and bourbon.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
