Angry and Black Since 1976; Somebody's Momma Since 2010
whooaaaa. the first one was enough for me to be like HUH??? yeesh.
Wow. I'm speechless.
Ugh, makes me fucking sick!
Yo!I like the first one. It just shows that a brother can't catch a break no matter where on the globe he may be.
Ok,That 2nd one was fucked up. But I couldn't help laughing just a little bit at the thought of it being played in America.Ok, on to watching the third one.
The only reason a Black man in Australia should ever sound like this guy does is if he has warrants in Compton and had to flee the country.That shit was wack!I didn't laugh.
First One:Tooth Paste...that whole commercial was about toothpaste folks! Who the hell saw that one coming? I know I didn't! SMHSecond One:NO! Just...NO!Third One:This is why we can't win (not only in America, but apparently around the world)!
The first commercial really irritated me! For the 2nd and 3rd, well I was already prepared anyway.
Oh my goodness! The first one made me sad...The second one pissed me off! So they make fried chicken magically appear and all the Africans come running?? Hmm..I knew that Asia didn't have very good/accurate perceptions of black people, but I had no idea how bad it was. The australian one was just dumb.
It seemed that in the Australian commercial the guy was supposed to be like Chris Tucker in those movies he did with Jackie Chan: high-pitched voice, loud, rambling on ad nauseum. The toothpaste commercial was shocking. The gist of the message seemed to be that while BLACK skinned people were terrible and would do you harm, that black toothpaste was actually GOOD for you. The Korean commercial with its Africans are savages but they love fried chicken stereotype was shocking, too. Not because the stereotype is new, but because it was so overt and base, you'd think it was 1869 in the deep South, not 2009 in Korea. It just goes to show you that people of African descent are ridiculed worldwide.
absolutely pathetic in any language.
Umm.....wow...I...um...wow. Commercials like this are still made?! WTF?! Seriously? This is how black people are depicted in Asia and Australia? Sigh...
I want to strangle each and every Black person who actually appeared in this sh*t.
im with aisha.except i'll do it right before i strangle all of asia. ugh!
I'm sorry but some of that was pretty funny. No offense.
That guy's voice in the third clip was like fingernails on a chalkboard.
My theory is that racial attitudes of the rest of the word are just following in the footsteps of white racism. Its a cycle. Where whites leave, the others arrive. Only a few laws are stopping people from total enslavement of the Africans. And the Arabs are still doing it. In the end, whites maybe the uncomfortable allies of blacks than anyone else.Check out Mexico's black face stamps.http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4637943.stm
Aisha sd:"I want to strangle each and every Black person who actually appeared in this sh*t."MY EXACT FEELINGS!!!! Why would a black person want to be part of any of that rubbish?
what the fuck????Excuse my language, but did this run on tv in Asian countries? They saw nothing wrong with them? that is just goddamn disappointing.
Honestly, it just shows cultural intolerance to get offended at those kinds of ads. Blacks are still relatively nonexistent in Asia, existing more as a legend than as a stereotype.Could you imagine an asian person looking at American ads, and seeing them as relatively nonexistent or relegated to stereotypical roles? Like the asian kid in the Nivea commercial saying "This won't increase my ability to mate" or the various TV shows and movies that depict asians only as members of the band or the math team?We cannot judge asian nations by our norms, and we shouldn't let them judge us by theirs.
"We cannot judge asian nations by our norms, and we shouldn't let them judge us by theirs."Why o why is there always a seemingly intelligent argument defending racism. I guess it would take a commercial of a lynching for this anonymous to see a hint of racism.
I thought the toothpaste commercial was trying to make the point that people respond in the wrong ways through ignorance. I think they were trying to actually say something against racism. The other two were just plain offensive.
I liked none of them, that is one of the reasons why I watch very little television. It is just to mind controlling.

The other two were just plain offensive.response: umm...i definitely didn't get that from the commercial, then why was the bm climbing up the pole like a gorilla? I don't think that was an anti-racism commercial, I just think it was a commercial that was in such poor taste. I know there aren't many bp in Asia, but damn...come on now.
also, wat in the hell does racism have to do with toothpaste? we all know the stereotype about black people having big ass teeth and dark skin, so i just don't get it? It reminds me of darkie toothpaste to be honest...
I have seen this EXACT type of racism in America from Asians towards Blacks. I live in California where the Asian population is VERY high, and Blacks and Asians do NOT get along here at all. I'VE been treated with that same racist Asian attitude.I have also been told, by Australians, that Blacks are treated BADLY in their own country. By Blacks, I don't mean just the aborigines, I mean ANY Black person. SAD!!
Whoa. The first one, what the h*ll did that have to do with toothpaste?; The second, typical stereotyping (black people and fried chicken) and doesn't surprise me; Now the third, at first I was really offended, then I started to think, "Is it really any different from the portrayal of blacks today in this county?" (Not just in ads but movies and TV shows as well)
