The Heineken Ad Is Worse Than The Pepsi Ad, You’re Just Too Stupid To Know It
The DiDi Delgado

Well, I guess I’m just another clueless person “too stupid to know it” — and hey, nothing makes me want to truly listen to your point of view faster than being told how stupid I am.

So, a privileged rich white girl, trips over a clash between police and protesters, then trips over a conveniently placed display container filled with ice cold Pepsi that she snatches up and sassily hands to a riot cop and VOILA! Suddenly Whitey understands that Black Lives really DO matter! But this Heineken commercial with people building a stupid bar (yeah, I was somewhat annoyed with it), actually realizing they’re facing a person who hates everything about them until they have to face the ‘thing’ they hate in the flesh. And they realize they’re not horned monsters but human beings. That’s WAAAAAAAY worse than privileged white princess solving race relations in this country with a 12 oz can of someone’s next diabetes diagnosis — but hey, what do I know? I’m stupid, remember? And that ‘sista’ failing to bash that misogynist bastard up side the head with that green bottle of shitty beer? FAIL! Because violence solves everything! It’s certainly been a good strategy for cops. If only the African-American community could be taught to just walk around with more ice cold refreshing racism solving Pepsi…

You’re certainly entitled to your opinion. You’re not entitled to say it without some push back. If being exposed to the people and things we fear to learn they’re not so bad is so bad — then I don’t know how the hell we’re ever going to fix anything. I think I just figured out why I’m so stupid in your eyes. I WANT things to get better for everyone. I don’t want to walk around feeling persecuted for the rest of my life but some people get off on it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
