This Snapple Ad Pitting An Asian Man vs. A Black Man In A Battle For Superiority While Two White Men Watch Makes Me VERY Uncomfortable

Okay. So lemme get this straight.

The yellow man is (yellow) lemonade, and the black man is (black) tea.

Is this Snapple ad promoting tea or a race war? Seriously, I can’t tell.

Those eyebrows betta hope this Vietnamese lady doesn’t come across them in a dark alley while packing Tweezerman Luxe Edition Swarovski® Crystal Slant® tweezers anytime soon.  AND THAT IS NOT AN EMPTY THREAT!

*not an actual web series

All Is Quiet On A Martin Luther King Jr. Day

January 18th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana
