    Mountain Dew Releases Arguably the Most Racist Commercial in History

    Of course, in the world of Mountain Dew, every single suspect is black.  Not just regular black people, but the kinds of ratchety negroes you might find in the middle of any hip-hop minstrel show:  Gold teeth, “mean mugging,” sun glasses wearing, white-t sportin, hard core n*ggaz ready to “get into some ol gangsta sh*t.”  Apparently, this is the kind of ad you put out if you want to appeal to the black male demographic.

    On the other side of the one-way glass is an innocent, feeble, traumatized white woman, standing next to a detective telling her to “nail this little sucker.” The woman is shaking, wounded and crying in fear over whatever these scary black men have done and might do to her in the future.   Black men are scary and violent, that’s been established.  There is also another white officer, and a black man standing in the back corner.  One side of the glass is mostly criminal, 100% black.  The other side of the glass consists of the “good guys,” nearly all of whom are white.

    Throughout the video, the woman is trying to decide whether to identify the suspect, and is being threatened by the goat who is telling her that you “betta not snitch on a playa.” He also starts out by saying, in a scruffy voice, “You shoulda gave me some more….I’m nasty.” So, I guess that means that the woman was r@ped by the goat, maybe Rick Ross style.

    As the woman is shaking, crying and trying to decide what to do, the goat says, “Snitches get stitches fool.” After that, he says, “Keep ya mouth shut. When I get outta here, I’m gonna do you up (translation: Probably beat and s-xually assault you again).”

    If you can watch and listen to this video without being appalled at the flagrant racism and degradation of women featured throughout it, then maybe you need to move the hell off the Kos and go hang out at The Blaze. They like people like you over there.
