Ok, so my video isn't great but this is a new version of a Golden Corral commercial.



Why do they have to show black folks diving out of a car because the restaurant they are going to is too expensive?

At least the last version of the commercial made it seem that they didn't want to go to some cheap place where they had to share an appetizer. (Even though at Golden Corral you're basically sharing food with everyone.)

They didn't. They were still smiling during the part where she said it was pricey. They jumped out because she said "I hope we catch the chef on a good night" and they saw the Golden Coral.

Here's the original version posted by someone else on YouTube. His comments are pretty funny.



I think the new one seems much more racist.

Not having them in the commercial would be racist. Having them in the front seat would be too 'Driving Miss Daisy".

The guy making the comments has a persecution complex.

It's ridiculous. Are only Caucasian people allowed to be in funny commercials?

Personally, it wouldn't have crossed my mind that this commercial was racist.

Anybody that thinks this is a racist commercial might have issues.

Please, what's next? I'm only allowed to tell white jokes to white people? I think some people take it a little too far.

National and international science academies and scientific societies have assessed current scientific opinion on climate change. These assessments are generally consistent with the conclusions of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), summarized below:
1. Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, as evidenced by increases in global average air and ocean temperatures, the widespread melting of snow and ice, and rising global average sea level.
2. Most of the global warming since the mid-20th century is very likely due to human activities.
3. No scientific body of national or international standing maintains a formal opinion dissenting from any of these main points.

It would have been racist only if the couple had bailed out in front of a place such as Big Momma's Rib Shack, as it is...naw, not even close.

we would be hearing how racist the commercial was if it was white people jumping out of the car instead of black. You can't win

The version in my area has them jump out with the guy saying they are not going to share an appetizer.
