    Default I Love This Superbowl Add And Now It's Being Called Racist!!

    I saw this commercial for the first time yesterday and absolutely loved it!!! I love Reggae music as it is the happiest music there is IMO and if you have ever been to a Reggae concert, you know what I am talking about. Everyone is up dancing!

    Now the commercial, according to Good Morning America, is being called racist!! Why????

    I have GMA on right now and they keep saying their going to discuss the racist issue and they haven't gotten to it yet. They did say the whole Jamaican country has responded to the add. I don't know yet if in a positive or negative way. I thought they were proud of their music, identity and so on. Maybe because the commercial is white and asian guys? Then that would be them being racist.

    And I don't watch the game. Don't like football.

    I saw the commercial the other day.
    Never gave it any thought about being "racist".
    That was before they started talking about it.
    On the other hand, the TV news talking heads were talking today that the superbowl commercial for Mercedes is "sexist" because it portrays a woman with a low cut dress.

    What's next ?

    I heard them say this commercial was considered two sexy. I laughed. I have seen far more blatantly sexy commercials advertising for hamburger stands!
