Reply to "Why Does the Super Bowl Dorito's Ad, with the Little Boy Smacking the Man, Bother Me?"

No, it's not just her!  That commercial rubbed me the wrong way, too! 

But unlike her, I know exactly what it was that I didn't like about it!  It was the portrayal of a Black child that young having no home-training and no respect for an adult - and a Black man at that!!

Dude should have dropped-kicked his little ass into the next millennium, if you ask me!  And that might have been funny! (j/k)

But, no, I was not amused by that ad.  Of everyone that could have acted the fool in that commercial, they really didn't have to make it be the young little boy, IMO.  Because, as the author notes, we unfortunately have enough (way too much) real-life instances of that kind of stuff happening everyday.
