Is it just me? Why are 90% of the commercials I see so 'blackish'?  I guess I'm a minority now.  We Irish Catholic white people are dying off.


And I can't watch TV without seeing this guy...Not that there's anything wrong with that! Angry

Yeah, it's "All PC all the time" now everywhere you look.

Here are two upcoming PBS documentaries that I saw ads for on my Facebook Newsfeed this morning...



And then....



Like I said.... "All PC all the time" now everywhere you look.

Thanks, Jimbo.  It just seems like some people are making babies they can't afford.  d4 and Mooch seem like very responsible people.  I don't want to lump them into that category.

My problem is that it seems to pander and condescend at the same time.

Even the latest Xfinity abortion! A black woman taking social advice from a black pre-teen girl to to delete a guy's number from her phone (which in and of itself is retarded), and surprise surprise, the boyfriend is white!
I'm all for equality and justice, etc., but this world is getting WAY TOO PC for me. As a white man I'm beginning to feel guilty about dating white women.

Things have gotten totally asinine. Today, I read an article blaming whites because blacks are assaulting Asians.

Yep. Here's the headline and byline:

The history of tensions — and solidarity — between Black and Asian American communities, explained

How white supremacy tried to divide Black and Asian Americans — and how communities worked to find common ground.



For some reason, I can't post the link. But it's in Vox.

i wish leslie Jones was less black and more FUNNY
she just is from the gross out class of SNL
more ugh than humor
actually sometimes K Whig treads into that territory
i also blame SNL partly for why buffoons and sarcastic skits are the
meat & potato of ads as opposed to actual IDEAS

Embarrassingly bad. And I'll say it here - I'm gay. And that guy (he was one of the "Queer Eye For The Straight Guy" guys) embarrasses the hell out of me. Why does it have to be "YUMMY broccolini?" Why does he have to be wearing her leotard? Haven't we gone beyond the "silly fem" portrayal of gay men yet? (Suffice to say that most of us don't act like that, but somehow Hollywood and Madison Avenue still want us to.) F**king mortifying. This is pride month, and those ads make me feel ashamed, not proud.

^ How would the advertisers signal virtue if they couldn't let us know what they were signalling virtue about?

While their intent might be to appear inclusive (of gays or blacks or Muslims or trannies or whatever), they only succeed in pointing out their subjects' "otherness" or specialness.

And maybe some of the blame goes to the actors themselves, who might be selling themselves that way.

Damn --bless u...this is EXACTLY why the 'new normal' is sucky--it actually
perpetuates a LOT of these stereotypes by making adtards SCHTICK these groups with whatever
QUAINT or biased behaviors of the past. I bash on gay 'inclusion' as a rule
mainly not due to the folks who, honestly, i couldn't care less yr personal preferences as
long as they are not PRANCED or FLOUNCED in an exaggerated way IN MY FACE as an
inclusion 'must have'...its mostly to get your $$$ the cos. are REALLY concerned about
same with rednecks--just keep it to yourself CLETUS
...YUMMY Broccolini!!....

Some time ago I said this about this commercial--"I posted about this yesterday. It's offensive not because he (may or may not be) gay, but because they apparently wanted him to camp it up. As I said then it's like if they had a Mexican guy and told him to wear a sombrero and shake maracas on screen."

I suggest in the name of the almighty *equity" that race and gender be represented in all TV shows and adverts on the percentage of US population. ....wait! You don't like equity now?

I remember this now...Really bad!  I wondered why Simone didn't do the Geico 'frisbee' ad.

Someone showed what a freak show the woman they used is!

Tonight I'll be eating nothing if I don't get to the grocery store and get something and that is going to have to wait until the weather decides what it's going to do.... 

Dark storm clouds to the south, flickering in the sky and low rumbling.

Not sure whether to go or not.

Guess I'll just wait it out.  Stern Smile

I remembered I actually do have something for dinner.

I've got 3 Johnsonville smoked sausages, a small tub of mac & cheese from the grocery store deli and a package of nice, soft Greek style pita bread.

Guess I'll heat up the sausages, toast up some tater tots and have all of that together.

Use the pita bread to make sausage wraps out of. Tongue
