Ad Manages To Avoid Abercrombie Type Backlash

    Sales Super Bowl Ad

    Did anyone else see the Super Bowl Ads with Ching Ching and Ling Ling? The Ads, featuring Panda Bears speaking in broken English, seemed to have thus far managed to escaped the ire invoked by the equally offensive Abercrombie and Fitch T-shirts a few years back.

    So what is it with the apparent pass given to asian racism in this country?   I guess it's okay to make fun of our yellow friends.  And before you go and say well they weren't slaves, don't forget that low point in American history when the Japanese were uprooted and put into interment camps during WWII.  If this commercial featured apes chirping in Ebonics, Rev. Al Sharpton would be going batshit right now.

    I guess Sharpton ain't no equal opportunity civil rights leader unlike his brother MLK who fought for all.  Al, remember the word civil comes from the Latin civilis meaning "citizen".  I guess the NAACP also called in sick today.
