    Re: IS this ad racist?

    For this ad to be racist a marketing executive made a proposal like this

    "Hey guys heres my idea theres this white guy and get stuck at a cricket game with all these black people,and hes like "oh no not black people""."Then he thinks i know everyone knows black people love chicken i will give them some and that will shut them up".

    and then his boss went "brilliant lets run with it"

    Probably it's a little racist, but there is no need to avoid the fact that people of different races have their differences - and that can usually be in a good way. We can enjoy and laugh at each others differences.

    We had a Popeye's and a Churches go broke with Katrina. I'm just sick about not having nearby chicken! That used to be a treat!

    Fried Chicken is a part of Southern cooking and therefore traditionally an American Black dish, and a generally Southeast American specialty. Another reason for the tendency toward obesity in the South, btw.

    Is it racist to suggest that Blacks have their own cuisine?

    Also what IS a stereotype-free menu? I mean people could find offense in any little item?

    What if he was also passing out watermelon and grape drink?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Considering the OP was posted asking the question by (i believe) an American I voted "Only in the US would it be considered racist". Not saying that you think it is James, just that if the question had to be asked then I'm sure that there is someone, somewhere in the US that does think it is. Idiotic, but...well there ya have it.

    I believe the point of the ad was that the people surrounding the guy were rooting for the opposite team that hailed from an African nation. That's what I gleaned.

    Probably, but so what.
    Racism is not dead. Nor is stupidity.
    I did not nor will I look at anyone's advertisement, if I can help it.
    Advertising is propaganda.

    To the American who did know the ad was made in Australia and and or that the stereotype that black people love chicken was only an American stereotype any American would think the ad was racist.
