I am watching the exciting Super Bowl game between the Giants and Patriots. (I’m ecstatic that the NY Giants won). Anyways, while I am watching the game, then an animated commercial from SalesGenie.com appears. It is a commercial with panda bears with bad Asian accents fullfilling so many common Asian stereotypes. I couldn’t believe that a company like that would spend millions of dollars to put up a racist tv ad like that in the biggest television event of the year. Needless to say, people should stay away from SalesGenie.com. However, it makes me even angrier that they felt like they could do that without any repercussions. It tells me that they had no Asian Americans in their boardroom telling them that this commercial was racist. Also, there is something disturbing in the fact that they thought it was ok to stereotype Asians in this commercial because I would doubt that they would do that for African Americans and Jewish people. They know if they did this to other groups, there would definitely be a backlash. It just tells you that it’s ok to be racist against Asian Americans in this nation and we saw it on display in the biggest television event of the year. I just shutter to think how many millions of people watched that and just laughed and thought nothing of it. We got a long way to go in this nation on the issue of race.
