Is this racist?


PepsiCo is coming under fire for this Mountain Dew ad. Critics say it is “the most racist ad ever created.”

1. It was created by a black man. So, aren’t the cries of racism just a lot of hyped up victimization?

2. It’s obviously satire. You can’t have true satire without playing on a few stereotypes.

3. If this were a lineup of white men, well dressed wall street types would the racism even be a factor?
