Seriously this is what I was wondering lol. Bunny attempted to throw the stone, but didn't really provide a reference for it. So, I'm left Confused.

the inebriated African American woman who was celebrating mardi gras/superbowl in New Orleans who was verbally assaulted by the hispanicracka reporter.

true you didnt reply in that thread, but many did & if mocking ones ppl is funny, then mocking ones sexual health should be too.  That is my point of the bhm picks &  chooses what to be offended by.  Not YOU per se, but whats good for the goose......

^^ahh I see.

No mocking someone's health status isn't funny - ever. IMO, this commercial doesn't compare to a vaudville minstrel show with ppl in black face or Abercrombie's Asian bashing screen print tees.

Jamaicans weren't presented as something laughable/ridiculous/ignorant/etc. It was positive and IMO was no different really than a tourism commercial that shows happy white ppl visiting Jamaica and "laughing & frollicking (sp)" with Jamaicans on the resorts/beaches/etc.

Now we all know in real life, once those vacationers come back to the US, they're NOT laughing & frollicking with the local WI populations in their cities/towns. Ermm

ETA:

One could make the claim that the official tourism commercials exploit the Jamaican population to be this smiling/shuck & jive set of ppl meant only to put smiles on the faces of white people who visit and contribute money to their economy. I doubt most ppl would make that claim. So that's why I don't really see this ad as offensive.

Wonderland, no brown folk in that commercial. I think I saw the back of a woman's head but that's it.

This is just much ado about nothing. Some ppl just need to constantly be in a state of "I'm offended" to feel relevant.


IA...next thing you know the whites will eb up and offended that the ad made them look ridiculous...
