    Racism or not? Watch the commercial and leave state your mind^^



    As of lately this commercial by Volkswagen seems to have stirred quite some commotion in the U.S.A., saying that it is racism agains the Jamaican people to have a white person talk with a Jamaican accent in this commercial.

    Watch the commercial and state your mind!

    Peace out

    definitely not a racist commercial. but it might be for people that are sensitive or are just looking for something to complain about.

    aye, thats just how some people are. Funny thing that only some people in the US are complaining. Those who are complaining aren't even Jamaican. The Jamaican people themselves dont have anything against the commercial, on the contrairy, the like it.
    what my question is after getting to this point is "why"? why complain about something that doesnt affect you?
    i mean i dont complain about scratches on my neighbor's car. or about a bird that shat on the head of a classmate, thats just weird..... right? or am i weird...?
    sigh..... ah well, seems like i'll never get the awnser to my question.....
