Observations… Ruminations… Ponderances… & Rants from Another Perspective

Yes, That is Racist

I got this commercial/video from Jasmyne Cannick’s blog.  In the Telegraph online a Japanese editor is quoted as saying, “The commercial clearly is a parody of Barack Obama’s campaign… but I don’t feel that it reflects racist ideas about black people and monkeys. I doubt that most Japanese people would even understand how a pink-faced grey monkey native to Japan could be equated to African people.”

But hold up, isn’t Japan the country that Jesse Jackson was boycotting back in the late 80s for their caricatures of blacks on toothpaste and their racist attitude toward African foreign exchange students.

Give it up, y’all.  Ya know it’s racist.
