ok so today 12/1/08 in my asian american studies class my teacher showed us these sites that McDonald's put up.
for the different ethnicity out there or something.
which i thought was stupid and wrong.

here are the sites
Myinspirasian.com
Welcome to McDonald's 365black.com
Me Encanta

all of us the students didn't like any of the sites it was like degrading the different ethnicity's or something.
sure the sites r cool and such but it kind of sends out the wrong message or something.
a classmate said something about stereotyping.

if u look at the sites u would see that the asian and african site are all in english, and in the spanish one u get the option of having it in spanish or in english. my teacher said something like its because asian should or already know english. and latinoise (that what my teacher like to say then Hispanics) something. i don't really remember. a classmate said something like if McDonald's r only opens in the u.s. then its because mexico is closer to us.

oh what do the ppl in the spanish website look like to u? the one in the game.


do u know what kind of message this ad sends to ppl?

and why do u think that McDonald's didn't put all of this onto one page?


my info isn't that right so yah.
i tried my best to remember it all.
and thats all i can remember.

Why are the sites "Stupid and wrong" and "cool and such" at the same time?
Its nothing new for companies to sell you things you can't buy. This time they are selling you ethnic identity in easy to digest nuggets with delicious dipping sauces.

Yes and I'd leave it at stupid and wrong because there isn't anything cool about them. Just crappy flashed based mcdonalds sites.
Thats why I want to know what you find cool about them.

Eh, I think they're brilliant. It's their job to sell it, they'll do what ever it takes to get your attention and craving. I'm sure they don't care about stereotypes. They're not here for world peace and equality, you know. They're just a fast food restaurant trying to make everyone fat.
Which btw, they are succeeding. -__-;

They're just attracting customers, aren't they? I dont think they care about that much. Their main purpose is just to get you eat their stuffs.

who cares its all about business and marketing. who really cares about race when your going to mcdonalds to eat. i didnt and i ate there today. if anything i think its smart how they are reaching out to all races like putting different languages on their cups and bags.
