Get a life. The ad fool fool but it funny!

So Americans have gone to fight for a country who

1. Doesn’t care
2. Is too busy laughing
3. Is in deep contemplation about how to make money from this,

Over an ad that volkswagen plans to use for Superbowl 2013.

Here’s the ad and the white lady acting a fool saying how offended SHE is about black people, with black accents because every Jamaican is black and hanging from a tree or smoking weed with Bob Marley.

White Lady acting a fool

In complaining about a stereotype, she stereotyped us and offended us. Good job, lady.

Now, the ad is stupid, but stupidly funny. I’m not offended, in fact, I’m ready to knit a rasta tam and dance beside Jimmy Cliff as I usher you into NMIA (Norman Manley International Airport) and onto a beach to spend some tourist dollars. (Come on Wykham McNeil, dollar signs here!). What offends me is that as always, the US caucasian has invited itself into a battle that:

1. Doesn’t exist
2. It has no invitation to

Nobody asked you for your opinion and we as a country (an eclectic mix of races, backgrounds and opinions) hereby invite you to come to Jamaica mon, get happy and spend money. We have debt to pay and an IMF deal to sign.

  1. Totally agree. What we have is a set of people who in my opinion look for any reason to cry racism and defend a group that they feel cannot defend or is too small to defend themselves… thus creating an imaginary “political correctness” war.

  2. Barbara Lippert is obviously uninformed (I had a much stronger word but I don’t want to end up with a lawsuit.) “Black accents?” Are you kidding me. Does she not realize that ALL Jamaicans aren’t Black. Unbelievable. I am Jamaican by the way and I do not find the add offensive in anyway. The corporate world could use more happiness.

  3. my accent is no longer Jamaican? it’s now black? ok…hmmm…maybe THAT comment was racist though….just maybe…in trying to invent racism Ms. Mediapost just created it. Good Job. -_-
