Race Invaders

This picture is too much:

Each of this woman's breastesses are the size of a child's head!

The picture is from an article in the Times about the portrayal of big black women in advertising. I read it, but found it utterly annoying and somewhat pointless -- like a debate that has no conclusion; or a Springer episode without a 'Final Thought'.

There's some references to Durry Queen as a company that uses African-American stereotypes in its advertising. I'm sorry, but they're just catering to their clientele. And it seems to work -- at least, that was my impression the last time I was in a Dairy Queen :) Well, with sprinkles (no pun intended) of white trash.

So you know what -- don't bitch about potentially negative portrayals of African-Americans in the media, because at least you get portrayed! And if you don't like it, then stop suckling up to the DQ softie machine!


  • Tune into any late night showing of a 'black' show and check out the ads. You will find yourself in an alternate universe where the commercials feature mostly black people in 'black' themes. The commercials are basically the same except that in these black people use the products and the products suddenly have soul! Do companies think that unless a black person sees other black people driving a car in a commercial they wont trust it and therefore wont buy it? Do black people see these commercials as anything else other than insulting?
