MTV broadcasts fake commercial about racial disparity during Video Music Awards. Seems to have really hit a nerve with racist white people.

This courtesy of Inverse:  

Turns out that the fictional White Squad was produced by MTV’s “Look Different” campaign, which aims to expose very real “hidden” (ha!) biases and tackle racial inequality. Skeptics may find it disingenuous, coming from MTV itself, but the ad does a brilliant job of exposing uncomfortable truths and targeting the audience that’s most likely to respond. Even white kids, who might not be aware of the discrimination their peers face, can look at White Squad and think, perhaps with a moment of clarity, “That’s fucked up.” 

On the Look Different website, the creators admit: “The truth is, we’re all a little biased — even MTV.” Challenging those biases, they say, is the first step to creating a more equal future. Maybe White Squad just leveraged its privilege to help out people of color after all.

Personally I thought the video was somewhat humorous, but also unfortunately quite accurate when it comes to how certain ethnicities are treated by the system in America.

You can kind of gauge that accuracy by how pissed off it makes white folks who are, of course, totally NOT racist.

Courtesy of Addicting Info:

As you can see these perfectly normal, every day, totally NOT racist Americans, have a point that there is no racism until MTV (And of course President Obama.) creates some by constantly bringing the topic up for discussion.

Could not be more clear.

    The racist reaction to this ad makes just about as much sense as the people that keep telling BlackLivesMatter to change their name.

    Every day someone else is calling for BlackLivesMatter to change their name. Why do they think they have the right to tell that group what to call itself?

    That name is making them very uncomfortable.

      The profiteers and ignorant followers of BLM can call themselves whatever they want, just don't expect them not to be called out on their idiocy, their racism, and their promotion of violence by more intelligent and civilized (and working) people.

    I was born in San Jose, Calif. When I was three, my dad died in a car crash, and my mother (Mexican) moved back because my dad's relatives never approved of her. I grew up in Mexico and moved to the USA at 22. I am now 44 and never lost my native accent. I have an "English" last name, green eyes
    and light skin, but because of my accent I've been told to go back to Mexico, been called a wetback and other such ugly names. White people can imagine what's like to experience racism and xenophobia, but the actual thing is awful to say the least. Yes, racism is alive and well, and we must not forget that, just do the best we can in our lives and neighborhoods to effect change. Step by step.

      Lol.... and you are apparently blind to the racism in Mexico?

    2. Anonymous10:50 AM

      9:12-- LOL? So racism is funny? And if they have it elsewhere, well, I guess it makes it all A-OK then.

    3. Anonymous1:32 PM

      Well 10:50, a Mexican American complaining about his perception of racism and presumptions of 'white people' in the US and disregarding the much worse, racism that exists in Mexico is laughable. Note that 7:48 still chose to move back to the US at 22 even though it is sooo bad.

      Perhaps 7:48 isn't aware that life is unfair and a tough slog no matter where you live- unless you are born rich that is.

    OT ... strange but true. See DailyMail.

    One of the pastors from the rehab place Josh Buggar is at, is serving 12 years in jail for sex with a minor.

    Josh is probably enjoying an active sex life at the facility ... just hope his partners are of legal age.

    O/T It finally happened, brancy (no sign of bristol) patheos blog put the hammer down on President Obama's visit to Alaska. Nancy spewed so much stupidity, lies I couldn't keep up with it, how the hell do they sleep at night? Folks you can't make this stuff up..sheesh!

    OT I finally snapped or just asserted myself when my daughter's father in law put up another FB link Is Obama a Muslim terrorist plant in the White House. I posted a comment: total BS, I completely disagree.

    Then there is stuff from Jews Against a Nuclear Iran that seems to feed the Obama is a Muslim terrorist drum beating. Does it ever occur to these people Obama has been. PoTuS for seven years and the Taliban have not taken over, their churches and synagogues are still open, they still have their f'ing guns, females still go to school, we are not beheading anyone and there is no death panel murdering the elderly or disabled people. I am sick of conspiracy nonsense in the face of facts.

      I agree with your post, 8:31. It would be nice if the Trig Truthers would look at how foolish they sound and appear. But you are spot on.

      Haven' you heard? He's just lulling us all into a false sense of security while he gets all those secret FEMA camps built and trains his Gun Confiscation Army. He's also having all the lock on the White House doors changed so that when he declares himself Emperor and Chief Muslim Usurper For Life, none of those Real Amurkan Tea Bag Hat Wearing Patriots can get into the building to arrest him for treason.

      He's gonna get started on all those Muslim terrorist-y plans any minute now. Shhhh...don't tell anyone!

He said the Worst people there were the NEW YORK FIREFIGHTERS &the police that were brought in.they were looting stores and shooting the people they were there to help.

    I love the idiot who posted "boycott this add (sic) please". A bit of "white guilt", perhaps? And how, exactly, does one "boycott" an "Advertisement"? But the assholes bought it, hook line and sinker.

    I'm just sick at heart that all this obvious and rampant racism pervades the Internet. It's so discouraging. And to think that the election of a Black President unleashed all this suppressed racism, instead of instigating a new post-racial era in this country. Ok, so it was naive to expect post-racial comity, but the backlash is overwhelming. Even here, commenters make outrageous declarations and spit vitriol back and forth. I almost wish there was a real White Squad to try and disrupt the institutional racism. I know it's better to address the problem at its source, but damn it's taking so long and is so much harder than it should be.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
