Re: Debbie "Spenditnow"

There was nothing racist about that ad. Maybe not in the best of taste, but it is honest about what is happening with our jobs. The more that our government spends, the more our taxes rise and our companies go over seas. And that is without discussing the perversion that we call a minimum wage.

The fastest way to grow our economy is to cut actual spending (not spending increases), cut taxes, and cut the minimum wage.

Re: Debbie "Spenditnow"

I find myself questioning more the intelligence of the guy that ran the add than I do whether or not the add was racist. I don't think it was. Stereotypes may or may not be true. From the persepective of that ad it really doesn't matter if its a true stereotype or not... what matters is that people will recognize that stereotype.

The problem with stereotyping is that its hard to change a stereotype. Once something like black people like chicken and waffles or chinesse people speak broken english gets started we accept it as true and annecdotal evidence is enough to make it true to us. All we need to have is one or two experiences with a black guy that likes chicken and waffles or a chinesse person who speaks in broken english in order for that stereotype to be validated in our minds. Heck, even a commercial that has a chinesse person speaking in broken english perpetuates that stereotype whether it is true or not.
