Are McDonalds Commercials Racist?
A huge multinational corporation making racist sterotypical commercials that targeted blacks was the topic of conversation at my house last night. It seems that Mcdonalds cannot put a black person in a commercial unless he or she is dancing, rapping, popping and locking, or doing double dutch jump rope in the ghetto. Now contrast this with whites who appear in commercials, who merely enjoy a steaming cup of coffee and hash browns for breakfast, in a friendly, clean restaurant with broad American appeal. See the difference?
You begin to feel that McDonalds is being racist with the way they portray blacks. It began, some say, with this double dutch ad.
Now they have a black man rapping about chicken nuggets, and in this ad, the beautiful light-skinned black woman is dressed to the nines. Fried chicken bits and sex appeal accompany these stupid lyrics: “Girl you got a 10-piece please don’t be sting-ayyyy..”
Watch this next commercial where the child of the well-dressed black family enters the room with a giant boom box, and proceeds to pop and lock his way through a package of apples, yogurt, and caramel dipping sauce. The child’s stereotypical antics brings a smile to the stern faces of his family.
So is McDonalds deliberately portraying all blacks as having magical powers to dance and sing their way through a Big Mac meal? What is even more ironic is that McDonalds has done extensive market research and focus groups proving that these commercials are well received by their target audience, which means that not only do blacks not find such commercials offensive, they actually prefer them to other commercials! And this is not just in the USA either. Watch this commercial from Brazil where 4 black guys sing their way across a McDonald’s restaurant just like minstrels in a traveling roadshow.
Even when McDonalds portrays a black person in a positive light, such as a business owner who is taking a lunch break- McDonalds still brings on the racism. In this commercial the business owner runs a shop full of African knick-knacks. Not something sensible, such as a coffee shop, printing business or fashion boutique. And since the black owner won’t sing and dance, those African knick-knacks will.
So is McDonalds racist? Or the best ever at focus group marketing?

Wendys commercials these days feature a pretty redheaded girl, usually hanging out with her white friends enjoying some tasty burgers and frostees. But the moment they decide that a black guy should be in a commercial, they of course force the actor to beatbox, rap and dance. Why? Because it is a well-known American fact…

Francis Rosario is a fat slob who appears to be a single Mom on welfare in Georgia. As an Obama voter, it means she doesn’t have to work and can spend her beloved food stamps wherever she wants, including McDonalds for a breakfast burrito. At McDonalds are other Obama voters toiling away at minimum wage,…

Look at this hilariously restarted racist video made by a bunch of racists in Duluth, Minnesota, a city which is overwhelmingly white- Yeah, the video is full of subliminal messages scrawled in the white spaces of the frame, and it looks like a bunch of old people who are ashamed to live in the best…

Okay, the story here is not that another white woman was the victim of a racial attack- perhaps she was, but evidence doesn’t prove that- but the bigger story is that this woman went thru the same drive thru off Martin Luther King Drive for 5 years without an incident. I say her reckoning was…

A North Carolina Mom learned the hard way what happens when you try to perform a denial of service attack on a McDonald’s Drive Thru by parking your car at the window and refusing to move. You get TASED and your kid goes to foster care. From the DailyMail here: Police used a Stun Gun…

They hire ex murderers to work the cash register in NYC? Really, with the jobs crisis in this country, McDonalds can’t find someone who didn’t shoot someone in the face in High School to ring up the super size fries? On the flip side, WTF is wrong with black McDonald’s customers who try to jump…

Al Gore has opened his mouth again, and as usual, he is calling people racists, and equating bigotry, where people turned dogs and firehouses on black people to telling a friend that “Nah, that Global Warming stuff is probably bullshit.” Al Gore’s Dad attempted to block the implementation of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.…

A dude who dresses full time as a woman went to a Baltimore McDonald’s to pee in the women’s room. When he came out two black girls beat him so much that he went into convulsions. Shocking video here. The entire five minute attack was caught on cellphone camera by a black McDonald’s employee named…

If you are a Democrat, it is perfectly fine to call your black constituents who disagree with your policies “Buckwheat.” The news media will look the other way. According to Vindy.Com here, the State Senator’s own words weren’t racist, and was somehow the trick of the TeaParty to make him look bad. Here is the…
