Here is the original ad:

Literally shocked me that this ad got the 'O.K.'. In my opinion, this is more proof that authoritarian SJW's don't use their brain. The video below has a rational response to it though. Whether your Democrat or Republican ignorance is unacceptable. The people in this video demonstrate a level of intolerance prevalent in the worst of us.

The add is not racist, and the responses are not logical. Having your privilege challenged is not the same as racism.

Lol?!

Child? Check your privilege sir. I've been on my own paying for my own things for almost 10 years. This ad is clearly racist. Imagine any other paradigm and suddenly this is on national news.

For a video that boils down to trying to get a certain subset of people to display a bit more empathy and respect, it does a pretty poor job practicing those same principles. I didn't personally find the video offensive, but generalizing white guys' behavior isn't going to reach their target audience's ears before outrage is triggered.

I wouldn't classify those responses as logical so much as inevitable.

I think the call to stop saying "I have black friends" as an argument against perceived racism is pretty piss poor one that should be stopped on the grounds of being feckless as an argument, so I think it may have a point there. The accusation that this privilege is extended on a racial boundary? Not so much.


In any case, the blue lives matter argument is bullshit. If they didn't think it was a thing, they would be more successful in saying it is percieved unjustly, or in other words, not based on fact. In any case, what the fuck? When did blue lives matter=Black lives don't matter?

You're still a child, with childish, self centered opinions. Using phrases like "authoritarian SJW's" that "don't use their brains". Parroting nonsense that you've read on some right wing rag does not make you smart. Oh yeah, and the word you are looking for is example, not paradigm.
Yes, I was in university when you were born. I really think you need to check your privilege. What do you think was actually racist about that ad. Was America always great of all of it's citizens? Do black lives not matter?

And explain to me what actually is bad about social justice.

A white person calling a asian, black or whatever other race out for things based on their race is racist, just like this is also racist.

Stop talking about it!"

Pretty much this.

Just another liberal voter indoctrination/drive seeking more victims of inequality, injustice, and insanity. Too bad nobody cares about you snowflakes anymore. You have gone to the pity well one time too many and it is now dry.

Fix your own problems and stop making excuses for your lack of intelligence and motivation to improve your own life in a positive way.

qwueri pretty much covers it. A total lack of self-awareness.

I don't think it's a big deal. Most white guys avoid talking to or hiring people like that already, so they're among those doing a "great job" of not mansplaining or whatever it is that offends people and creates conflict.

Perhaps we'll see an ad about what blacks need to change for 2017 next.
