Discover another blatantly racist ad
Fat black women. Check.
Head wags. Check.
Totally befuddled by technology- "I don't like talkin' to robots." Oh, they are such SIMPLE people, aren't they? Check.
"Girl." Oh, they are such CHILDREN, aren't they? Check.
Droopy, half-open eyelids and quizzical, "WTF-Ever" looks. Check.
"I forgot what I was calling about." Never seen this in a commercial featuring white people. But why should I? Black people are SOOOOO FUNNY because they are SOOOO CLUELESS AND FORGETFUL LOL! Check.
Discover Card joins the "there's nothing funnier than African-Americans acting the way White People think that African-Americans are supposed to act" parade. Hey, no problem, Discover- there's always room for one more monkey wrench in the gears of progress. I'm just surprised you didn't manage to get these women dancing. You KNOW how musical "they" are.
