Volkswagen’s Super Bowl Ad Isn’t Racist
I blame the so-called controversy around Volkswagen’s Super Bowl ad on the fact that there’s still two dumb weeks between NFL conference championships and the big game and the media has to fill the content hole.
That said, the ad isn’t racist. As a product of a Jamaican family I found it hilarious, and in fact it made me proud once again at the international influence of the tiny little island my family is from.
It’s a stock issue white guy with a Jamaican accent palling around the office. He’s not insulting anyone. It’s fun. Lighten up, folks.
