exactly. would these products sell to black people if these stereotypes were not used as effectively in ads? also, youve got conflicting interests. take that mcdonalds chicken commercial a while back where a black lady use a little black slang 'ebonix' when she ate her chicken. some black people thought it was racist because it stereotyped black people. but then you have a group of people who think ebonix should be an acceptable form of communication and that the white man is shitting on it! what would these people think about that ad? my brain is going to explode one of these days figuring out all these okayactivists.
