Sony Running Racist Ads?

Sony is catching flak over an advertisement that people feel is racist. Sony talked to GamesIndustry.Biz and assured them that the ad has no other meaning than a white PSP is coming. Sony does seem a bit dismissive about the fact that it offends some people and has refused to remove the ad but says they have no plans on running it outside of Holland.

That is such a potrait of DOMINANCE.. and clearly a "white will dominate black" statement.

I don't even know what to say to this.

well I think THIS particular sony ad is somewhat racist. Like stronger_still said it shows dominanace of white over black. altho the other ads for the white playstation seem to spark less racial injustices at least in my opinion they do.

Wow. They used the most extreme examples of each race very subtly.

You know my first reaction to this wasn't racism at all... It made me think of all those Benetton Ads from back in the day...

I can see where it would offend some of our folk (or anyone sensitive to our history) but it just wasn't my first response.

Sad as it is to say... Our people will be among the first to skrimp and scrape to pull together the dough to purchase one of these products... Without regard to what the intent/message that Sony is ultimately sending out.

I don't think it's racist, I think it's funny. And maybe, maybe, that guy will have the girl's face cuffed in the next ad.

I'm glad to know they've retracted it. There could have been a wholesale boycott of Sony products throughout the world because of this. I for one, would have been among the boycotters, and one to spread the word about this. I will never forget this slur. I'll make sure Sony never forgets either.

everything is wrong with that shit. I am even more mad that the model would allow hersrelf to be degraded like that.
