For all the negatives that is and can be said about Donald Trump, his strategy to capturing otherwise very expensive marketing airtime works.
Scream at the top of your lungs it is due to racism and hate, but the very real point that this strategy is successful is an indictment of OUR current human-condition absurdities is missed.
Before it is completely lost, does anyone remember any similar claims about this commercial when it was marketed?
I sure don’t recall any protests nor can I find any “racist” re-edits of the above Italian commercial. If anything, the comments are quite “oh my it’s dark”.
When Doctor Samuel Johnson had finished his great lexicography, the first real English dictionary, he was visited by various delegations of people to congratulate him. Including the delegation of London’s Respectful Womanhood who said to Dr. Johnson, “Doctor, we congratulate you on your decision to exclude all indecent words from your dictionary.” To which Dr. Johnson replied “Ladies I congratulate on your persistence on looking them up.”
Reminder, China is a sovereign country without a Constitution which guarantees “All Men Are Created Equal”. And in the country which has, “racism” is well, a constantly protested problem.
The world indeed needs saving, but stare into a mirror for a moment and realize it is not racism, sexism nor laundry detergent (though a fitting product) that is the problem. Hypocrisy, now that is the most serious indictment.
