JusWondering… Is This Ad Kinda Racist?
Michigan State Lottery has a ad campaign going on entitled, well, here’s the billboard:
That on its own is good and dandy, but the commercials get me JusWondering what I wrote above. Here’s a screen shot (you can watch the ad by clicking here):
What this leads me to believe is that:
- African-Americans buy lottery tickets.
- Middle Eastern-Americans run convenience stores that sell lottery tickets.
- Annoying white kids hailing from families that can afford clear braces are benefiting from this system.
- And the only way the African-Americans and Middle Eastern-Americans can benefit is if someone wins?
Am I crazy for noticing/thinking this? Please comment below…
