Arab-American groups have sharply criticized a Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad depicting an Arab walking through the desert with a camel, and one group said it would ask the beverage giant to change it before CBS airs the game on Sunday before an expected audience of more than 100 million U.S. viewers.

Racist? Please.

this has everything to do with the Vegas showgirls in the commercial. Muslims do not approve of that but they are too chickenshyte to state that at this point.

Arab-American groups have sharply criticized

Just a part of the grand plan to train America to say NOTHING about Arabs or Muslims unless it's portraying them as unquestionably wonderful.

This falls into the category of agitating and making trouble. I hope they are ignored.

My message to Muslims: if you don’t want to be portrayed as vicious, backward savages that escaped from the 7th century, quit acting like vicious, backward savages that escaped from the 7th century!!!

so arabs DON’T walk through deserts with camels anymore...?

time to stop caring what these race-baiting groups are saying. seriosly, they make a living looking for stuff to be pissed off about. they don’t speak for the average person who’s just trying to make a living and keeping their head down.

My first thought was that anyone walking across a desert would find a cold Coca-Cola to be a refreshing thirst quencher.

Would they rather show arabs burning cars in Paris?

I’m just curious what “natural habitat” they are desiring. Maybe sitting around getting a check from the UN or detonating on a crowded bus?

Thanks Bon of Babble.
depicting an Arab walking through the desert with a camel
I can see their point -- if it were to be accurate, the Arab would have to be humping a goat.

Instead of complaining they should go back to the desert and enjoy close moments with their camels.

So the towel head is mad because the Arab doesn’t get a spot in the voting... but they won’t let their own women vote back in “their county”?

Should have had a belly dancer kick him in the jewels and run off with the Motley Crue looking guys from Mad Max!

Thanks for posting. Racist, eh?
Wonder if Coke plans to nix it?? If not, expect the Middle East to blow up in riots in 3..2..1..

After all, they’ll riot over a teddy bear named Mohammed.

They follow in the footsteps of their "god". Way too touchy and immature.
