    I mean, that is targeted advertising, no? Was expecting something fucked up like those Chinese ads, this is really normal.

    If you are watching BET, McDonalds isn't gonna run an add with a bunch of white people singing doo-wap while dancing around in circles, that isn't gonna sell their product

    Burger King has black commercials like that right now where the black guy is so happy that he got a cheap whopper.

    Idunno if I'd call that racist... definitely targeted. I noticed on the radio commercials it's always a black woman who sounds like Wanda Sykes talking 'bout : "Girl, when I'm hungry... I grab me a crispy McSandwich"

    Sprite does the same thing btw.

    Yet when they want to sell clothing catered to black.folk or tv shows or rap its ...yo, holla, jump off, sho ya right, n word n word n word blah blah.

    I find them stereotyping themselves more offensive than these mcdonald commercials.

    I do notice that TV commercials do not represent black folks in a realistic manner. They portray therm as white folks.
