I figured we could have a thread where we post various ads from various races and discuss them. As social media becomes a larger part of elections, inspecting the messages we get in ads, I think will be very telling.
I find it hard to imagine that I would ever be hungry enough to play a racial stereotype of myself. I wonder if she just did it for the money or if she is a political partisan who didn't realize how demeaning that ad is.
Seoul City Sue was a white American who was broadcast in Korea during an active war. The woman in this ad playing the part of a Chinese woman in China. Seoul is not in China and we are not in a war with China.
And it is hard to see similarities between Ho Chi Mihn and a racist Republican politician.
