I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

¿WHAT IS IT ABOUT McDONALDS & BLACK AMERICANS?


So I am watching the other day and a commercial came on, it was McDonald's Ad. Now I've many over the years, but something hit me, WHY DOES mcDONALD'S ALWAYS FEATURE BLACK AMERICANS? But I have to give it to the fine folks @ McDonald’s; in these trying economic times, they prove their marketing savvy by creating some of the most catchy, stereotypical commercials to keep Black folks coming back for more McRibs and Fruit & Yogurt Parfaits[1]. Case in point is the latest installment in their “R&B McNuggets” series, which combines three things Negroes simply can not resist: Chicken, R&B Music, and Lightskinnded Women. Witness this…
This is one of the stupidest commercials I have ever seen. Why are these people singing about McNuggets? Do black people sing about everything? This chicken seduction is over the top even for MickieDs. Tell me what you think? Don't commercials like this FURTHER segregate the black community in America by portraying McDonald's as the the next place after the barbershop and beauty salon to be? 

"WORK-OUT" WITH NELLY



SO I AM IN THE BARBER SHOP YESTERDAY & THE AD CAME ON FOR NELLY'S NEW WORK-OUT DVD. NOW I DIDN'T THINK MUCH OF IT UNTIL THE MEN IN SHOP STARTED HATING ON THE AD SAYING THINGS LIKE WTF? & WHO IS THIS REALLY FOR ? THEY ALL CHIMED IN SAYING, 'WHAT MAN IS GOING TO BUY A DVD WITH NELLY BAREBACK ON THE COVER?' SO THAT GOT ME TO THINKING, THIS VIDEO IS OBVIOUSLY FOR MEN & IF THE 'STRAIGHT' MEN IN THE BARBER SHOP HAD A PROBLEM SUPPORTING HIM, WHO IS HE MARKETING HIMSELF TO? OF COURSE THEY WERE QUICK TO POINT OUT THAT ONLY SOFT MEN WOULD SUPPORT HIM. DO YOU AGREE? DO YOU THINK THE MEN IN THE BARBER SHOP HAVE A POINT? WHY OR WHY NOT?
