WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM?

God people, the same message would have went across if it was any other race. The mere fact that everyone jumps to conclusions that it`s racist, just because the guy`s black, make all of you racist at the back of your minds. Even if the guy was white, the message would still be the same. He tried to help the girl, was denied that, went home to go to sleep and turned out to be a good thing.

What is with all this political correctness? It`s idiotic. Are we that immature and uptight that we can`t take things for what they are and instead refer to `blacks` as `african americans` or `whites` and `caucasions`? what`s the difference? Loosen up, live a little, and quick causing so much controversy.

WHO CARES IF IT`S RACIST. As long as you aren`t hurting someone, I think it`s fine that you`re racist and have a personal bias. It doesn`t matter as long as you keep it to yourself.

...again with the Texas death row. :-P

Anyway...one thing`s for sure. The ad people for this product accomplished what all ad people hope to achieve. They created an ad that was certainly different from the same old usual crap you see on tv and with that, an acute awareness of the product.

I wonder what the sales data showed after the ad was aired?

Very racist. The message was basically "don`t judge a book by its cover." So the ad is suggesting being black (the "cover") is something bad, but could possibly be good because a black guy might climb up a pole (resembling a monkey climbing a coconut tree) and get a balloon for a kid. I can`t believe this crap was allowed. What country is that from?

and here they go again, squabbling like some snot-nosed 16yr olds at a homecoming dance.
all the bullpoo that is going on in this post makes it all too clear why that sort of thing can`t air on public tv in america.
to be quite honest I think that was a very touching advertisement. And all the people talking about "racism" just show how small and weak-minded they are.
It is quite refreshing to see that SOME cultures can outgrow such childish, petty behavior that is so evident on these comment pages.

saying you arent racist isnt a form of racism, first of, racism isnt a race. and second of, you saying its racist to say "im not racist" is like saying your racist for saying "im not black" or "im not asian"

Well yeah but I don`t judge people by their colour or race, but I don`t wanna lug those words around when I want to say "I`m not racist." It`s like saying "I`m not hungry." or "I`m not weird." (Both of which are lies :P)
And you say racism isn`t a race then you refer to it like one.

First off, I`m also with the "WTF" for this commercial.

Second, Rammstien, that is bullcrap. Saying "I`m not racist" doesn`t imply that he distlikes racists. He`s just saying that he`s not one of them. Also, seeing as "Racist" isn`t a race, you cannot be racist towards them. You can be biased against them.

Maybe the toothpaste is brown because it gets in between your teeth and it reminds you to floss your teeth. Because who wants to go around with brown stuff in thier teeth?

Everyone is some form of racist. Racism is the lack of toleration for a particular group based on race. Just the fact that you said you weren`t racist made you a form of racist. You think you`re better then those that are racist and therefor have a lack of toleration for them not based on race but on their beliefs. In a manner of speaking, you are just like any racist the only difference is what kind of people you don`t like.

lol, personally i think, why would you bother making a white toothpaste, no1 would buy it with or without the advert, the point of white toothpaste is because you want white teeth.

It wasn`t so much racist as it was ignorant. It was beautifully done, yet sadly misguided. I get the message of tolerance, but maybe it would have been more respectful to show the racist woman "seeing the light" and error of her ways. I really don`t think racists belong in toothpaste commercials. I would have made a great public service announcement.

All along, he was really just a glob of black toothpaste with dreams of one day becoming a misunderstood Samaritan.

I liked the creepy "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane" type music in the background.

And were all those balloons supposed to represent bits of successfully removed plaque?

It’s not racist. It’s showing that you shouldn’t judge something or someone just by looking at them. The Asian woman though he was a bad person because he was black and the toothpaste company doesn’t want you to pass up trying their product because it isn’t a common toothpaste color.
