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

I certainly respect all of your points The DiDi Delgado. I’m glad that I could read a different perspective, it was illuminating. I didn’t consider the negative implications of the commercial-that allowing bigotry to be on air at all gives it more life. What I took from the commercial is that the thing that combats hate is contact. That we must interact and learn to respect each other even with our differences. I think the commercial is representative of different but real views people hold about relevant issues today. I think the goal was for people to see themselves represented in these characters and realize that a conversation can be had. That we can find what we have in common and we can communicate about our differences. Hate is driven by the fear of something/someone we don’t understand or see as different so, it said to me can we find a way to understand each other.
