A Message To All Of You Who Love and Hate On the Coca Cola Superbowl Ad: "America Is Beautiful"
www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ReHUMUb9gY The problem with your logic (or lack thereof) is that you’re too patriotic. You’re so “I love America” that you’ve forgotten what it stands for. You’ve forgotten the way completely, to the point where you even have a problem with people loving your country if ‘they don’t do it the right way.’ The right way, of course, being the way you do it. Obviously. So to all foreign people reading this message, I have some advice: You can take pride in America, call it beautiful, and express your love for it: but if you do it in a different way than right-wing assholes of this country do it, you’re going to get blasted for it by pompous idiots on the internet. I’m sorry to tell you this now, because I’m late to the show, but it’s apparently true. Try to get by all you want, but if you see a white person, don’t be scared or worried. Most of us are good people. Most of us have progressed our way of life and belief system beyond the 1800’s, and are very nice to everyone despite their differences. We care about your values and your way of life, and we’ve outgrown the archaic belief systems of racial inferiority, and a made-up deity discussed in a man-made book. Be prepared though: Because some of us are terrible people. Some of us have no respect for difference. Some of us are fuckin’ nuts. You’ll know who they are the moment you try to speak to them, whether it’s on the phone or in person. They’ll treat you like an inferior person. They’ll treat you as if you are nothing to them, and like you’re just a big problem plaguing this nation. Even though you show love towards this country, they’ll be disgusted by you. They might be a self-perpetuating fallacy, primed for a charge against the red flag of difference, with their pitchforks sharpened and ready to strike against anyone who looks, talks, acts, celebrates, worships, dresses, loves, eats, sweats, runs, cleans, or otherwise performs any sort of action, belief, or feeling in another way from what they are used to. They might be old, stuck in their ways. They might be young, brainwashed from their older parents. They might be a lot of things, but they won’t be me. They won’t love your difference or your diversity, regardless of how you were raised, and the conditions in which you were raised in. They won’t show interest in your belief systems, or make an attempt at learning about your culture. They won’t care. [hr] Now… If you’re actually offended by an inspirational advertisement promoting diversity and world union, and you alienate yourself from the majority of the decent people of this world… than leave my page, unfriend me, remove yourself from my life and never speak to me or my family again. Not only do I have zero interest in knowing you as person or company, but your very presence is something I do not wish upon my future children either. I don’t need you destroying their minds with your shit either. You’re a disease plaguing the world, and I want to be rid of you. Might seem hurtful and unfair, I know… but now that you’re on the other side of your hatred, you’ll understand what you do to the beautiful people praising America in this song.
