Re: I am really tired of the "Dumb White People" commercials on television.
I like the one where there are several couples sitting around chatting about their kids, when the dumb white guy asks if anyone is saving for college. Well no one is or knows how to set it up until the only black couple in the room speaks up and schools everyone. Always the same, dumb white people being shown how to do something by the mentally superior black man.

Yes. Like that has ever happened in the history of the universe.

Re: I am really tired of the "Dumb White People" commercials on television.
Here is a simple example I saw on TV last night.
Gerber Baby Life Insurance commercial.

The scene:

4 young couples sitting around a table...three white and one Black. They begin discussing life insurance for their children. None of the white couples knew it was even available. The Black couple had already purchased it and proceeded to explain the product and process to all the White couples.

Here is another for Liveleak.com
Two guys in a diner type setting...one White one Black. Waitress comes to the table and the befuddled White guy says "Can you tell what the specials are..again"? Black guy immediately interjects, "dude, we've been over this already" then proceeds to rattle off the all the specials, under the increasingly approving eyes of the hottie white waitress. After which, she sats "wow, thats hot"! Fade to black and end picture of Black guy and hottie waitress head shots smiling at the camera.

Yeah they hate whites but can't get enough of our women or promote them not being rightfully where they should be, with us.

Blacks don't hate Whites, they hate guys like you.

And yes all Women are fair game.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 13725379


Well someone should explain this to the Windsors and get the message out to all those fine Black Ladies in the UK and USA. Prince Harry is some prime white beef, and single...what better way for the English Establishment to show their commitment to multi-culturalism than to have a multicultural royal wedding...that's the royals job isn't it? to lead by example..

Re: I am really tired of the "Dumb White People" commercials on television.
It's specifically 'White Men.' My husband and I were talking about this the other day. Diaper/cleaning product commercials regularly bash men as well.
I don't think OP is being racist, but I do think that product advertising (as opposed to service advertising) has developed this "All white men are stupid" campaign.

Also, it's not 'Black' people that are doing this. I have a friend who graduated with a degree in advertising a couple of years ago. There are more women (who are ethnically mixed) gaining degrees in advertising than ever before (thank Mad Men).
Also, wikipedia just went down as I was trying to look for the ratio statistics.

I've noticed this commercial too. But with this one, it's just people being insecure. So if it were another White couple talking about it no one would have any problems with it. The black couple just so happened to be the ones planning for their kids future. So what? It happens.

But I do see a lot of "dumb whitey" commercials and I think these particular adverts are aimed at non-Whites. Most Whites won't be offended by it because subconsciously they know they've been on top of the world since the crusades. It also could just be the result of living in a White world.

Re: I am really tired of the "Dumb White People" commercials on television.
I notice this all the time too. A simple Google search brings up some interesting articles on it. Apparently there are 2 reasons for these adverts

1 being that women buy more products than men. and you will notice that all of the adverts with the silly white man are products that women are most likely going to be buying. I'm not sure why exactly this is, but I can only assume that these silly white man ads appeal to women in some way, maybe they still feel that they are oppressed by white men and these ads make them feel less insecure.

Number 2 is as has already been mentioned there are more women getting university educations than ever before and they are getting into high positions in corporations and probably using that power to strike a blow at the "oppressive white man" who they feel has kept them down for so long.

At the end of the day white men are now the only group that is fair game for humiliation and degradation. It's a good thing none of us are insecure about being white and male or we might start rioting over it or something!

To really see what I am talking about, watch this short Youtube video for Aamco Transmission commercial on TV.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21346533














So I see. You just don't want to see Black guys in commercials period. Because clearly the mechanics not all Black and the dumb customers are not all white.

OP You have a personal issue with the existence of people who don't look like you.Particularly African people. And that's white there are commercials like the ones you describe. Because the elites understand that the Average Euorpean American has no real critical thinking skills. They know hate and suspision will be your first reaction.

Re: I am really tired of the "Dumb White People" commercials on television.

We've all seen them....commercials where the white guy does something dumb, or doesn't know something or can not figure out a problem and the Black guy saves the day.

Personally, I make a mental note of who these commercials represent and refuse to purchase their goods. Is it racist? Maybe, but I expect to see things the way they actually are, and not some make believe world where White people can barely walk without tripping over their own two feet.

I am also disgusted by the rash of Black guy White girl commercials springing up lately. Whether it be a night out, perfumes, or even a mattress, they are deliberately mixing the races to make it more acceptable.

I realize this ain't much in the grand scheme of things but this is no more than yet another attempt to emasculate the White man.

I know this is about commercials, but I would like to add that the television shows are also portraying the "average white American" and fat and seriously stupid.

Look at the History channel (not history anymore), TLC, A&E...Shows about

Alligator hunting

Swamp People

Redneck weddings

Pawn Stars

Cajun Pawn Stars

Hoarders

Storage wars

Dog the bounty hunter

Intervention

American pickers

American restoration

Truckers

toddlers and tiaras

HONEY BOO BOO

With that last one, need I say more?

One other thing, I know a beautiful white model who is almost always the most attractive one who shows up for go-sees, and the Latino, African American, Asian models who are heavier than she is just about always get picked for the work. At this point, it is obviously biased picking, and that is NOT to say there are not gorgeous/talented women of all races. It is an honest observation.

There's a great segment Brian Reagen does on commercials about husband bashing.

It goes something like this: "My husband is sooo stupid,why, if he was laying down in a puddle of water he wouldn't have sense enough to turn his head to breathe. That's why I do his thinking for him!" (Meanwhile the husband is in the background tangled up in the blinds, duuuurrrrr, aaaaannnnnggggggg,....)

Maybe someone could upload the clip from youtube. I would do it myself, but being a stoopid husband (As television so often points out.) I can't figure it out! Ladies?????? burnit

LMAO at white males taking marketing seriously.

Most women, white, black, etc... think that their husbands/boyfriends are dumb as a bag of nails anyway.

There are plenty of commercials depicting the "White male" as financial geniuses.

It's time to grow the f--k up and realize that there are more than just two races of humans on this planet period.

Hispanics represent 17% of the population yet other than advertising for Latin Grammy's or Jennifer Lopez you wouldn't know they exist by watching commercials. Arabic, Asian...etc...;
