Sexism in Commercials
Posted 7/11/09


Hm, I don't here about Asians being stereotyped more than Jews are, since the 9/11 incident Jews have been the target for racism in America nowadays which is sad. But that list is stupid, it shouldn't be taken seriously.

After 9/11, Jews have been targeted? Why? I thought it was Arabs or Muslims that started getting stereotyped.

I thought it was both? But yeah, those Asian stereotypes are stupid. Like the one that says they can't drive. You should see my mom, she'll run you off the road while going 20 miles over the speed limit. People won't even drive in front of her, let alone behind.

So it wasn't the Jews? I thought Jews were Arabs? It's been a long summer, I forgot everything I learned in history.
All I know is that in school after 9/11 the Jews, Arabs, and Muslims that went there were treated pretty bad and there was a lot of racism.

xDDD

lol There's a difference between Arabs and Jews. Arabs and Jews are two different ethnic groups, like black and white. The people that supposedly carried out 9/11 were Muslim extremists, not even Arabs, but most Arabs are Muslim. After 9/11 there was lots of racism towards both Muslims and Arabs because people are stupid.

But racism against Jews for 9/11 seems very unlikely, most people know the difference lol

I don't think you can compare Arabs and Jews, Arabs are people from a certain part of the world (geographically), and Jews belong to a Religion (Judaism).

As far as sexism in commercials is concerned, i think its all fun and games, i havent seen anything offensive towards either side.

To me this was pretty funny, but I can see how they would be offensive to certain overly-analytical people.

I think it depends on how you view it. You can view a stereotyped character in a funny way, you can also view it offensively. If you want to have all races represented in a commercial, so be it. As long as you provide the talent and the money.

Closest thing to a sexist commercial I've ever seen is the pledge commercials.

I doubt directors of these commercials even meant nor have thought of a single second about the race or gender of the cast.


And thats where you're wrong. Advertisements are specifically made to target a certain demographic. Advertisement associates study trends and responses of individuals to certain stimuli.
Ah yes. I have spoken to people of your opinions and let me just say that this argument will just lead to becoming a trivial one as I don't believe that racism and media create a legit/serious effect upon the real world.
