That caused me pause, as when a month or so ago, all of them joined the group "Pull your pants up" or "Pant's on the Ground."

Disagree with the negative takes. It's funny because you wouldn't expect such a little fella to come up with such a strong way to get his point across about his mama (first) and snack (second). It was simply a joke. Not an authentic take on Black life or serious study of single Black mothers, their children and their dating partners. It was just a humorous 30 second spot. This is one of the times where I think as a cultural/racial group, some of us are being a little too sensitive. If a...

I gasped! and then i ROTFL when i saw this commercial. The fact that the child was in a position to be "guard dogging" his "mama" was kinda weird and cute at the same time. Also the brotha didn't have to look at mama's behind and legs in such a biscuit and gravy sopping manner. I think i agree that a white child would not have been depicted as being placed in this position.

Even if the man was drooling over the boy's mother, it still doesn't give the boy the right to slap the chips out of his hand. That kid in real life would've had the taste buds knocked out of his mouth, for slapping a chip out of a grown man's hand.
