The Newest / Latest Flood of Blacks in TV and Print Advertising and Mainstream Outlet Show and Movie Production, and more...


Recommended Posts

In today's super woke - hyper cancel culture - post-George Floyd era, blacks have suddenly and disproportionately been cast / inserted into nearly every facet of big and small screen entertainment, advertising, marketing and the like. Is this effort and push by probably mostly white paymasters a genuine pursuit of diversity, or is it just a deceptive feel-good moment?

Why does every commercial on TV have an interracial couple? I'm fine with that but based on percentages of those marriages there is no way it's that high. Are TV companies preempting future criticism of them by just making every couple interracial?

Are black people overrepresented in the US media (e.g., movies and TV shows)?

@nels

 

This is a great topic with lots of well-researched links. 

I know how time consuming this is, and I appreciate 

your efforts.

 

The above quote/question is from a Quora member, and 

it is puzzling why corporations and advertisers have

taken this approach.

 

I usually fast forward through commercials but whenever

I happen to catch one I have noticed that they feature an

interracial couple, or a white person with what looks to be

a mixed race child. 

 

I don't understand what the point of these out-of-place

children is supposed to be. 

 

Are they supposed to be adopted or foster children, or

what, because the adult that is with them doesn't ever

seem to be the natural parent. 

 

Are corporations trying to convey that mixed race children

need to be rescued by whitey, or that Black people are 

unable to care for their offsprings.

 

And why can't white people just have regular white kids  

anymore, instead of curly haired dark ones.

 

The other thing that I find bothersome is the way that 

corporations banished Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben, and all

the other Black advertising icons. 

 

Didn't we want to see ourselves on product packaging. 

 

What was the problem and who complained.  


Were we really that offended by Uncle Ben?

Advertisers pay attention to current events and the narratives being spun by politicians and the media. 

 

As a result we end up with more images on the smoke, er, screen to reflect diversity and inclusiveness. 😎

Mzuri, appreciate the feedback.  I also had heard that after Aunt Jemima was canceled, the nephew of the woman originated the role was quite upset.

I can't believe what all you  "in-the-know" conspiracy theorists can't discern when it comes to this situation! Heads up you super spy cadets! This is a plot by the deep state cabal to placate black Americans and keep them in line while simultaneously stoking the growing white resentment toward politically-correct Democrat Liberals. Once this situation comes to a head, the country will be ripe for a white supremist take over. WOOOOO  The only hope is that that there is another cabal secretly scheming to preserve democracy and create a society that is inclusive rather than exclusive.

 

May the best side win. it's not like things will be any better for black folks.

When I see / read (IMO) nonsensical passages, they remind me of something I read long long ago, and that is, "Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction".

 

p.s., "Heads up you super spy cadets!" | Insulting one's own self won't erase the massive gaslighting that black America is undergoing from the Democrats, The Left, the Mainstream Media, the globalists, the Marxists, socialists, communists and the like.

 

And remember, we usually don't realize what we've lost until it's gone - e.g., freedom, liberty and justice for all.

@nelsThat being the case, why have you responded to my post?  Couldn't resist trying to do damage control, huh? Mission unaccomplished.

@nelsIf the shoe didn't fit you, you wouldn't be trying to wiggle out of what clearly describe you. tsk, tsk. What would humanity do if it didn't have paranoid prophets of gloom and doom to take the joy out of living - prognosticators like you who will be disappointed if, Heaven forbid, things work themselves out and Life goes on its merry way.   Cheer up, Chicken Little. Maybe one day the world will take you as seriously as you take yourself. Hard to imagine, however, about somebody who thinks the  party of Libertarian white supremists and thick skulled Neanderthals  is the answer to America's dilemma.  Liberals and Conservatives will never successfully co-exist and the obvious resolution is for those of like minds to hook up and go their separate ways.  The United States is done but you are too busy beating your breast to realize this.

@nels Do you know if said nephew had any financial loss from the removal? I know that in some of these media trademark/image rights/copyright scenarios, sometimes, small bits of money , but good money is given as part of the deal to this or that , that isn't worthy to mention in the wall street journal, but is valuable

Cynique, do you realize how small the statements you've made make you look / appear? They are the kind of minute retorts I used to see and hear from others, as far back as the 8th grade. The circular hyperbole you've laid out makes absolutely zero (0) sense (- , at least to me, that is -). Let's fast-forward on the IQ scale... How many physical points does it take to make a minimal (real) three-dimensional object? If you get this one right, you might get an 'attagirl'. On the other hand, if you get it wrong, watch that next step; it's a long way to the bottom. | white supremists? DYM white 'supremacist'? | thick skulled? DYM 'thick-skulled'? | Just sayin'. (?)

Actually, I do not know. However, there are many more relatives of the Aunt Jemima legacy who have something to say.

In the end, it's all about money. True or not, we'll all probably find out when the litigation clouds clear.

See what's happening is there trying to push the negativity of blacks that surrounds them such as a cab driver won't pick up a black are you clutch your purse when walking alone near a blackman.. there just Trying to get you to see them on a regular basis so they will be excepted and seen as an everyday item in your life. Do get use to it cause the grand scheme for these who push are pushing for one race one gender!! Which I have no problem with black or white people! The problem I have is with good or bad people. If we foucsed on the heart of man instead of the color, which is not natural its something everyone has to look deep inside and overcome.. rable rable...

I, personally, start to sweat profusely when I see a group of young, black men walking down the sidewalk.  This is mainly due to a statistically high probability that I will either be robbed or gang raped by them!  I immediately go into my pockets and give them all the change I have in hopes of avoiding either outcome...but, mostly the latter!

73.4 % of the population in the us is white. 13.7 % is black. It seems to me that 90% of TV adds contain black people. why is that?

I think it's disgusting what advertisers are doing. This does not represent America and even if there are biracial couples that is like 5% of the population. White women are not obsessed with black men, as a matter of fact, it's the other way around. I hope this experiment goes away soon because I cant stand to watch another commercial where the black man actually has a family, had money and a nice job, nice car and a white wife when reality is far from that.

Let's start with Edward Bernays, Google him . Master of spin, Nephew of Sigmund Freud. Start with the tip of the advertising iceberg, Then let's go on to a Black truth seeker/ Open minded person, Take James Baldwin, Maybe even Dick Gregory, Professor Griff,  See how far those intelligent well read people have explored rabbit holes.Start there, and when you're all caught up......
