I don’t think anyones “position” in this commercial was up for debate or they insinuated to “oppress” their social problems — CLEARLY the one gentlemen SHOWED progress by saying “I was brought up thinking everything was black and white, but obviously life isn’t black and white” regarding his transgender comment (I wish I had that kind of success with close minded people in defending LGBT). “The productive thing to do is discuss — engage, engage”. That’s how to overcome…
Obviously they’re not going to try and tackle racism in a format like this…unlike being a transgender, or lesbian - if you were a racist, you would notice the ethnic person infront of you. You would have your guard up immediately from the first encounter and would probably miss the point all together.
I think the intent of the message is nice - if you get offended by every little attempt at people trying to do the right thing, you are probably the one with the problem.
Relax, have a Heineken…lol
