Maybe I'm just insensitive but I don't see that as racist. I don't really see any negative conatation towards blacks, whites, or any other race in the advertisement so I don't see the problem.

That is almost the exact definition of racist... :?
So, this ad is in fact racist. Frogstomp, if me and you sue Sony we could get a helluva lot of money.
I doubt the court would feel sorry for me, seeing as I'm white... but hey, you never know. :P

it definitely has racist connotations, and seems like a poor choice. I'm surprised they'd even run that, not that it matters, people will pressure Sony to take it down, and they will, because they are spineless.

It doesn't bother me at all though, but you can't give anyone a reason to call something racist.

Poor choice sony, poor choice.

Sure, it is racist. It's pointing out that black people are different than white people because of the color of their skin, but we're flooded with images like that everyday, albeit not as obviously, but they are there all the same and no one complains about it. Personally, I think it's a brilliant business move. If it causes controversy, it being put out there on an even wider base.

I don't think making a white PSP is racist, but that poster is one that certainly can give someone those thoughts. I mean look at it.

LOL, your the one that pointed out "racism". I'm just pointing out that you should refrain from doing so. Nobody cares.

That picture is not a white person beating up a black person, it's actually more sensual like she's saying "Look at me!" Whatever...

That's a very stupid ad on Playstation's part.

Is it racist? I'm ussually not very high on political-correctness, but that's going over the line. I think you can make a case for that being racist.
