Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the House floor Tuesday night to criticize what she called a "demeaning" Pepsi ad that aired during the Super Bowl.
In the ad for Pepsi Max, a black woman sitting on a park bench gets angry with her husband after an attractive, white female jogger sits down next to the couple and smiles and waves at the man.
After the man smiles back, his girlfriend or wife gets angry and whips her Pepsi Max can at him. The man ducks, and the can hits the attractive jogger in the head. The ad is titled "Love hurts."
Jackson Lee said it was ridiculous for the soft drink maker to air the advertisement during African-American history month.
"In this month of African-American history where we're trying to celebrate what is good and great, it certainly seems ridiculous that Pepsi would utilize this kind of humor," she said. "It was not humorous. It was demeaning an African-American woman throwing something at an African-American male and winding up hitting a Caucasian woman."

No dogs are in the ad either. Why no dogs?
Ewwww. The crumb licking commercials. Worst idea yet.

They weren’t laughing when they ran away, idiot. The white woman was hit by ACCIDENT.
Did you even see the commercial, asshole?
Don’t be a silly hypocrit with your feigned outrage. It’s really childish.
Jackson Lee blasts ‘demeaning’ Pepsi Super Bowl ad
One common feature of Democrats, Socialists, Marxists, Communists
and similar ilk.
No freakin’ sense of humor.
And ready to take offense at the most microscopic, imaginary pretext.
October. On a side note you guys make awesome beer.
Jackson Lee wanted DOJ to monitor tea partiers at polls I urge you to order an immediate investigation into these incidents, and call for the Department of Justice to send poll monitors to Harris County immediately to ensure a safe and neutral voting environment during the Nov. 2 election, Jackson Lee wrote.
Jackson Lee then speed-dialed Vinny's Pizza Quickies.
"I'm starved watching these stupid people vote early. Make that three double
pepperoni pizzas, four gallons of Pepsi red, and three loaves of garlic bread.
And deliver it in 10 minutes to my car. "
wow....you would make a great crime desk editor for a newspaper or TV station-network.
they never notice if folks are black either...but funny thing...they always notice if they are white
Race relations...amazing how many freepers lap it up....willfully oblivious.
Great post...this ain’t 1955 anymore with blacks persecuted by whites. Now it’s more the other way around and so many whites are in “which way to the cattle car please sir?” mode
We’ve just made marginally bad much worse.
LOL! Great post. Oh I noticed. The white person was just a typical white person made to look stupid by Madison Ave on Obama TV. Usually it is the “stupid white male.” Another reason why I canceled Obama TV over a year ago.
I was invited to watch the game and found that ad to be outrageously offensive.
“Wait a second.. Whens my national Irish/German/Polish Month?”
Sorry - that would be racist, bigoted, and Eurocentric.
Are you on medication?
Perhaps you should see your doctor.

Here’s what should be run throughout all media during black history month. MUST SEE:

BTW, if anybody knows how to embed this video into a post so readers don’t have to go through a link, please do me a favor and do it for me. Also, if you have time, kindly PM and tell me how to do it and with photos also. I can’t seem to get regular html code to work on here, but I’m not very knowledgeable about this stuff in the first place. Thank you.
And I’m offended that Moe tried to poke Larry in the eyes only to be stymied by Curly’s hand.
Is she a descendant of Stonewall Jackson and Robert E Lee?
I'm not saying all black folks are fat, lazy and stupid...just you.
The popular culture is in the process of seriously underestimating the butt of its joke. When their pig ignorant actions remove the protections they're now in the process of abusing, let them bring it on. As for the dense, who gives a crap. They ain't ever going to understand what happened to them.
