Do you think this GAP commercial is racist?

screen_shot_20160403_at_1.13.21_am.png.CROP.rtstoryvar-large.13.21_am

No? Well then you’re probably a big racist. I swear to God, not even kidding. This is racist. When I first saw this headline I looked at and thought, “Where’s the racist part?”

I see one black girl in there. So obviously it has something to do with her, right? My first guess was there were too many white girls. Not enough diversity. Second guess was that they’re portraying black people as lazy because the girl is just standing there doing nothing while the white girls are doing funky stretching and ballet. But I was wrong. The REAL reason it’s racist is because the white girl in the middle is resting her elbow on the black girl. Not even kidding:

Can’t make this stuff up people. You just can’t. There are people in this world who literally go around looking for racism EVERYWHERE. Even in a harmless GAP commercial like this. The girls are part of some sort of Le Petit Cirque, and this ad is part of Ellen’s campaign about “empowering” girls.

So even though it was basically created as part of an agenda to uplift a segment of society that some believe is oppressed, the PC police still found a way to take offense to it.

Here’s some more hot takes from the Facebook machine:

If you need to type this much to prove that this ad is racist, then you’re overreaching.

So all people of color would find offense to this? That’s what she’s saying? Newsflash – there is nothing “risky” about this photograph unless you make it risky. It’s a harmless picture of nice children wearing GAP clothing.

Oh, and if you haven’t watched the video commercial with Ellen, then watch it. Because she interviews the girls and the black girl doesn’t talk, which makes it even more racist:

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 9.54.28 AM

Yea, that’s it. It’s a huge conspiracy to silence the little black girl. Hey here’s a thought – maybe she didn’t speak because she’s shy. Ya know, because lots of little kids tend to be shy. Nah, that can’t be it. Must be racism.

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 9.39.35 AM

But wait, it gets better – the white girl and the black girl are sisters:

Find me any person in America who never treated their kid brother or sister like a little bitch. It’s part of growing up. Her big sister, who obviously loves her little sister, uses her obvious size advantage to treat her kid sister like an armrest. Ya know, like every single kid with an older sibling has ever had to deal with since the beginning of time. I guess being taller than your sister is racist now.

Oh yea, and then there’s last year’s GAP ad for this same promotion:

ellen-degeneres-ed-gapkids-collection-main

Oops!!! But of course we have learned from brilliant thinkers like Nathan Pickens, that only white people are capable of racism. Therefore this ad is NOT racist, but the first one is. Also, white people were never used as armrests, but black people were, therefore this is racist:

Screen Shot 2016-04-07 at 9.49.54 AM

LOL. This is real life.

The woman who made the original tweet seems like a rational person who we should all take seriously too:

https://twitter.com/steviegenesis/status/717843494874783744

 

This also proves how privileged people of ALL COLORS are to live in the United States of America. You know your ass is privileged when THIS is the biggest issue you are having in your life. GAP commercials. Ya know what people of all colors are dealing with in other countries? Famines, government persecution, 45 year old life expectancies, civil war, and RPG’s coming through your windows. Meanwhile in America these “oppressed” individuals are dealing with a freaking GAP commercial.

Even if black girls were used as armrests during slavery, so what? What the hell does that have to do with this ad? Does anyone honestly believe that a GAP executive was like, “I know a way to stick it black people – let’s make a vague illusion to something that may or may not have happened to some slaves 160 years ago.”

Here’s an issue the PC police are conveniently ignoring – the clothes are manufactured in a sweatshop by an 8 year old Chinese girl. None of these SJW’s seems to care about that though, because I guess they think Asian people don’t matter.

12919836_10208044879013445_6441415091664293530_n

According to TheRoot.com, this article wouldn’t be a problem if the roles were reversed:

While all of the girls are adorable, and indeed, all of them should grow up to be and do anything, it becomes problematic when the black child is positioned to be a white child’s prop.

Sure, the black girls is clearly happy being in this commercial with her sister, and their mother has no problem with it either. But a PC asshole who writes for a racist publication owned by professional race baiter Henry Louis Gates, said that it’s problematic. So now GAP has to take it down:

“As a brand with a proud 46-year history of championing diversity and inclusivity, we appreciate the conversation that has taken place and are sorry to anyone we’ve offended,” a Gap spokeswoman said in a statement.

And that the worst part about this really – GAP has joined the long line of gutless corporations that has given into the politically correct terrorists. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this is why Donald Trump is popular. Because we’ve been dealing with nonsense like this for so long now, and it just keeps getting more and more ridiculous. People have reached their breaking point. It’s not that most of us think that Trump is gonna be some great President. It’s that we wanna do whatever we can to give a big “fuck you” to the people who have created this environment, where a commercial like this is taken down because some people say it’s racist. And nothing would piss these people off more than a Trump presidency.

 

We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.

    When stuff like this happens, it does nothing to curb any subconscious prejudicial attitudes I might hold toward black people. In fact, it makes me paint them with the same broad brush they paint me with in holding any racist attitudes. There is no progress to be gained by being politically correct. All it does is build resentment and division. And if I wasn’t a racist before, I know I am certainly on my way.

    FiestyLawyerLady, take a break…anyway, what’s really racist is that Gap has been influenced/scared by the PC Cartel so much so that they have to include a black model in all their ads. Can we just be honest and point out the obvious? Black people don’t wear clothes from the Gap and that is A-O fucking K. Who the fuck cares??!! Gap stuff is only slightly less of a honky staple than whale pants. Should us crackers demand FUBU start recruiting their models from Sutton High School?

      I am taking a break… spent most of the evening with high BP spikes dealing with useless paperwork that was seconds away from going into the fireplace… This work kills my soul sometimes. Anyhow, I think and type fast, none of this takes more than 1 or 2 minutes.

        Flighty, no one gives a shit about you or your BP on, here. We don’t even think you’re a real lawyer….your stuff reads more like you’re a receptionist at a small insurance agency. Probably have a crystal pendant hanging on your car’s rearview mirror, blinding everyone stuck behind you in the morning sunlight. P/S: I am not Trump’s boy penis. And there IS a “we.”

    What a freaking joke!! If it wasn’t a complaint about her being used as a convenient armrest, some PC douchebag would complain that there is only 1 girl “of color” out of 4 girls; or that she was the second from the left. “Why can’t she be the first on the left?” Here’s an idea…why don’t we just have segregated and race-specific commercials, ads, billboards and any other form of media advertising. Better yet, why not have black ads & commercials, and white ads & commercials…like the English/Spanish labels on every single food product sold now!! Tell me that’s not the direction we’re heading in this country!

    Im so sick of these people.

    If America is so racist, institutionally racist, bigoted and disgusting, why dont you MOVE THE FUCK OUT? Ohh cuz there isnt another country who will take your non-productive “safe space” pussy asses?

    You mean you would rather stay here than go to Africa “Cuz we waz kangz and sheet”? Why not? lack of plumbing? Electricity? Houses? or is it the mass killings by Boku harem that you ignore but cry about how many cops beat a piece of shit who tried to kill them? or is it Cecil the Tiger’s brothers pulling children out of their homes for lunch? Ya, USA is so bad.

    Whats wrong? America is so hate filled but you wont move to Syria where they throw gays off of the tops of buildings?

    Wont move to Saudi Arabia where woman arent allowed to leave the house without their husband?

    Cant move to North korea because they wont feed house and clothe you and your family because your skin is a different color?

    Wont move to Brazil because they wont give you free college either?

    Not gonna move to Sudan because their safe spaces are regularly invaded by rapists and murders?

    Ya, America sucks, thing i, there isnt a better place. So either go start your own fucking country or do something to change it. Your crying and whining isnt helping and the only thing its doing is getting Trump elected.

    You think you are oppressed now? Wait till Trump is prez. You pussies are gonna get fucked for real this time. You asshats think GW Bush was so bad? LOL Just wait.

    Another issue people seem to overlook is that when mountains are made of mole-hills and there’s backlash over stuff like this is that excluding minorities becomes the better the option for companies because there’s too much “risk” in diversity.

    This is really ridiculous. It’s insane how when the tables are turned, it’s okay. I have faced racism by black people enough to know that some are the closet “Hate whites” type. One time at super walmart in worcester I was standing outside smoking a cigarette when all of a sudden I heard, “Is you serious nigga? Staring at that white pig skinned bitch fuck outta here nigga” so naturally I looked over and I was sooooo shocked she was talking about me. Most people tag me as mixed white/latina/Hispanic because of my NY accent, but maybe being blonde with light skin she just knew I wasnt. I didn’t say anything because I’m a grown woman, not going to fight some trashy woman who talks down to her man in public, she obviously gives no fucks.

    Another time I attempted to help an elderly black woman and she told me, “Don’t touch me white devil” wtf? So I let her old ass go up the steps by herself, bye!

    In my way younger years (teens) being from the hood/ghetto I had to face racism ALL the time… it was horrible but no one says shit about that! I lost count how many times I was called a “white bitch” when I lived in that area. Thank God that I have done well for myself. Who’s the white bitch now? 😉

        Of all the white people I know, none of them are racist! I don’t get it. I don’t go around holding grudges on elderly black ladies or black women because of my experience. What is wrong with people?

        You havent heard REAL racism until you hear a Dominican talk about black people, vice versa. It’s VILE!! I get the inside scoop seeing as how I’m white but fluently speak Spanish with a SERIOUS perfected accent. It’s the best because not many people know this about me lol… Inside gossip!

If you are around elderly black people enough, that’s how they refer to white people lol. No joke. They also call us wet dogs too… I don’t know… I don’t care.
