Racist Racism Racist Blah Blah Blah…

February 3, 2013

The liberals are at it again.

A Volkswagen Super Bowl ad has supposedly “angered many,” featuring a white man talking in a Jamaican accent. Charles Blow of the New York Times called it “blackface with voices.”

First of all, “Jamaican” is not a race. It’s a nationality. There are white Jamaicans as well as black, and while I doubt the actor in the commercial was actually from Jamaica, there is no reason a white Jamaican wouldn’t speak that way. That alone should render the whole racism thing moot. But you don’t even have to go there. Even the simplest mind would see that there is nothing derogatory being implied about Jamaicans in this ad.

You know what I think? I think people who think this ad is racist should actually watch the ad until the end, and take the ad’s advice: take a chill pill and just relax. Congratulations to Volkswagen on a job well done. Don’t mind those overly sensitive race-mongers. It’s impossible to win with those talking heads. No one with the least bit of common sense would actually consider this offensive.
