And you're sure everyone here is white ... how exactly?
Damn but I'd kill for a minute's worth of your clairvoyance.
Do you have to start shit about everything? Didja bother to read Violet_Skye's comment above? I was just riffing on it.
Here, I'll quote it so you don't yell at me for not providing you with the exact quote, too:

To me, it's just a humorous ad reaching out in a tongue-in-cheek style to the African American community. I'd be interested in knowing which agency designed it, and which designer, and their thoughts,too. I'm also going to get my Halfrican American's son take on it, when he returns from his foreign exchange student trip to Germany in a week. My guess: he will either laugh, or just say "duh" with an eye roll. He generally finds Caucasian outrage over things like this to be much ado about nothing.
ALL RIGHT! NOW WHAT CAN WE FIGHT ABOUT?
