    Link: Is This Mountain Dew Ad Racist? - Mountain Dew thought so after viewers said it was arguably the most racist ad in history. You make the call, I-A-B.

    Usually, if the race and gender of the perp are known, the suspects will be of the same race and gender as the perp. In this case, the perp was black. Very rare, I know. Now, that said, it is a lame, terrible commercial.

    Funny and I see nothing racist.

    But in fairness, the only ones who can say if this is really insensitive is the people it`s making fun of. So we should ask some goats if this bothers them.

    If it`s funny (or even very slightly humorous) it isn`t racist.

    Racist? Possibly.

    Stupid? Definitely.

    On either grounds the ad agency should be fired.

    who the hell greenlights these commercials?

    What manager/vp of advertising saw this and thought, yeah lets run this one. I appreciate that all kinda silly ideas get tossed around but to go into production and put it out there?

    so sad.

    @turbotong`s Linky! Thanks!

    It`s not "racist" but it IS:
    Sexist
    drating offensive

    Jesus Tap-dancing Christ! It`s one of the least "funny" and most offensive things I`ve seen in ages...
    Boycott Pepsi! Stupid draters...

    Do I think it`s racist? Nope.
    Do I think people will think it`s racist? Yes.

    Was it a good ad? Absolutely not.
    Painfully, painfully lame.

    @ Daegog

    You would be disgusted with some of the B.S. in the advertising industry. Those people are so corrupt and horrible. Seriously.

    If I told you how much the executive got paid to approve that ad.. and how little he/she actually put effort into doing their job, you would PUKE.

    "All the criminals are black and the detectives and the victim are white. Yeah... kinda racist."
    Or just statistically accurate.
    Reality is not racist.
