There is a Mountain Dew commercial that has been pulled because the "race police" have deemed it too toxic for the public consumption.
Once again these idiots are crying wolf.
This commercial was supposed to be COMEDY. I doubt if the guy who thought up the commercial intended to degrade anyone. But there are some people that share the same skin pigment as me that will find racism in anything but the right thing.
Did I think that the commercial was racist?
What I thought was and in my opinion what the race chasers should have thought was...' It is a damn shame that we as a race have degraded ourselves so much that other races can "parody" our behavior and pass it off as "comedy".
As long as I have been Black, certain Black people in this country have gone out of their way to make every negative stereotype about us true.
Stereotypes are based on some truth. And the truth is, there are people in the Black community that fit the description of the actors in that commercial. There are people in the Black community that are proud to fit that description.
So what is so racist about it?
Or is it just embarrassment?
Black people in this country, are in my opinion, some of the most lost individuals on the face of the earth.
We don't know if we want to be "Black", African or American.
We want to blame other races for our plight in this country instead of looking in the damn mirror.
Racism is not an excuse to not succeed.
Racism is not an excuse for our children killing each other in the name of streets that we don't own.
Racism is not an excuse for us having more disposable income as a "race" than some countries, but we still do not own the businesses in our own neighborhoods.
Racism is not an excuse for the prisons being full of young Black men in the prime of their lives.
Racism is not an excuse for our young boys being brought up with no real male role models.
Racism is not an excuse for not taking responsibility for our own fucked up
If there is a wall in the way of your progress..break that motherfucker down, go around it or go over it.
So instead of crying and protesting a damn talking goat...maybe we need to peel away the layers of the proverbial onion and find out why the "goat" thought that shit would be funny in the first damn place.
And then work out a solution to that little problem.
Just a thought.
