Default Is this racist?



Some people are making a big deal out of it. I want to know your opinion.
Personally, I don't see it as that racist... but I guess I could see it being bad if it was the other way around, and they had a black guy beating up a white guy saying "Black is coming."

Meh.

Who cares. People who cry racism on everything should be lined up and shot.

What the hell were they thinking though. Obviously there would be some people thinking it was racist. They should've just made a completely different billboard.

It wasn't made with racist intentions, but the racial implications that can be drawn from it are evident. A stupid business move.

its a stupid idea for an add. and its not racist, id say its racially insensitive. i understand a white PSP is coming but why do you need a white lady beating up a black women?

it implies that once the white PSP comes out black PSP and through its imagery black people aswell will become inferior. a very poor choice from some add agency.

I would say it was racist if I could possibly win a few million dollars, but it really doesn't bother me.
