Racist TV Ad Using Children
ROLLA, MISSOURI -- I find your TV ad using black and Latino children to be disgusting and racist. You propagate the getto and ganster image of select minorities with your use of language and physical mannerisms. The children referring to each other as "dog" and the physical gestures of the little girl are paternizing and profiling of blacks as being low class and unable to communicate in proper English and acceptable terms.
I find it offensive when businesses capitalize on terminology and mannerisms of any ethnic group to increase sales. I believe that you are really sending a clear message that, "we think you are too stupid to realize that we are making fun of you to suck you in our store for your money, and that we don't really care how you or your children are viewed by society." I plan to share my views with all my friends. Consider me a FORMER K-Mart customer.
