There's nothing racist about this. The three countries represented truly are a threat to the EU growth in economics.

It's very clever ad that all Europeans will understand instantly. Not racist in the least. These emerging economies that will swallow small counties GDP in a year.
If they wanna stay in business they gotta join the club and then vote on policies that will protect their interest in global economy.
But there always be Greece to drat it all up

What's wrong with the EU growing? There is nothing really to apologize for, it's not racist, more like nationalist.

The problem is that every member of the EU has such a hollowed-out military, they'd collapse like a house of dominoes if a serious power decided to invade them.


I believe the UK has a decent army and France has nukes, so their army isn't hollow. And does the EU provide mutual defense?

Thank You @PopeRocket! I think it's the funniest thing I've posted at IAB! Intentionally I mean!

Rather proud of it I am!

The black guy represented Brazil, which has a distinct martial art. If they wanted to depict Africa there wouldn't been a black guy stopping old women on the street selling socks and asking for a euro for a coffee.

Racist? No. Not even accidentally.

Alarmist and edging on hostile? Yep.

Detante? I thought that all we had to do was talk to each other and everything would be ok?

Does this mean if you are stronger you can prevail?

So we're supposed to fear people from different ethnic backgrounds? I'm very surprised sophisticated, cultured Euros would come up with obvious race baiting like this. To hear them talk, (MacMuffin) that's the sole domain of Americans. How's that crow tasting?

Maybe it was the horrible stereotypes of each culture that pissed people off...

Yeah, it's hard to believe this idea ever made it off of the whiteboard.

The point of the video is that coloured men from all over the world can come to Europe and have multiple white wives! Obviously!!

What's really offensive (to multiculturalists) is that these various cultures come to Europe and POOF! They're absorbed by "Euro-Culture" and vanish completely!

I can see why everyone finds fault with this little piece of 'euro-trash'.

Multiculturism propaganda, paid for with your tax dollars. And the gap between the bureaucracy/govt elites and the rest of the citizenry grows wider....

The problem is blatant xenophobia. East Asia, the Middle East, and Africa are portrayed as the enemy.


I expect that the intention was "competitor" rather than "enemy", just not done very well. China, India, Africa - the first two are competitors, the third could be.

But in some senses, they are enemies. Competition for resources still exists. It's dressed up in international business and politics, but it still exists. It's even possible to outright conquer a country solely through economics, to destroy it by making it financially impossible for it to sustain itself or to absorb it by effectively buying it.
