    The Direct TV “head bang” commercial starts with a handsome black couple on their couch watching Direct TV. The commercial proceeds to show a man banging his head on a beam, a woman drinking spoiled milk, a man sleeping in poison ivy, a woman getting a paper cut, and a man with his hand stuck in a vending machine: all 5 of the “losers” are unattractive Whites.

    Comment from YouTube video:

    So, lets pretend that this commercial shows a loving, calm, and collective white couple sitting on the couch and then you see a black person banging their head, sleeping in poison ivy, having their arm stuck in a vending machine, etc., etc.. I find this commercial very offensive to the Caucasian race. Am i the only one that sees this? Or am i being obtuse? Pull this ad immediately!

    Commercials have gone almost 100% black now, as if White people didn't exist.

    I was just thinking about that. Instead of constantly showing White men as idiots and criminals, more and more they simply don't even exist in commercials.
