How could they possibly have thought this was ok? It beggars belief. Your thoughts?

Only a dirty mind finds the dirt everywhere. Myself, I'm not a racist, thus I see nothing wrong there.

No, but I'm not racist - so I don't default to looking for offence everywhere.

I didn't notice everyone the bottle passed by were black until it was pointed out. Just people looking for a way to be offended.

Effing millennials.

It's got you talking about an ad. Racist or not, clearly it is effective.

You're all being subtly manipulated, and you hardly even know it. Wake up! Look around. OBSERVE. Then learn to think.

I'm more annoyed at the proletariat bartender sliding the refreshing beverage past his working class comrade in order to serve the bourgeoisie.

I'd want something with a bit more body, like pop for example.

I kinda miss the old Frito Bandito ads. Old School probably remembers those.

He's coming to steal your corn chips because they're tasty and he's Mexican!

The sad thing with sugar is, I don't actually know whether he's taking the piss or not in this particular instance.
