Mountain Dew Yanks Commercial Amid Accusations of Racism (Video)


What I find really racist even talking about this commerical and article  is that they can’t even say the race of the ‘battered and bloodied woman’ who happens to be WHITE as seen in video.

Mountain Dew is pulling down a brazen new ad that has incited outrage and accusations of racism.
The minute-long commercial features five members of the hip-hop collective Odd Future as suspects in a line-up that also includes a talking goat named Felicia (voiced by the group’s ringleader, the rapper-producer Tyler the Creator). A battered and bloodied woman — sporting a neck brace and crutches — wails with fear as Felicia threatens her from behind the mirrored window. “Keep your mouth shut. I’m gonna get outta here and I’m gonna ’dew’ you up,” bullies the goat, prompting the woman to run away. Meanwhile, a jaded cop guzzles a bottle of Mountain Dew.
“We apologize for this video and take full responsibility,” a rep for distributor PepsiCo said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “We have removed it from all Mountain Dew channels and Tyler is removing it from his channels as well.”
The clip, part of a trash-talking series of Mountain Dew video spots from Tyler the Creator, has been deemed ”arguably the most racist commercial in history” by author and social commentator Dr. Boyce Watkinsaccording to Adweek, which earlier Wednesday posted a statement from PepsiCo saying: “We understand how this video could be perceived by some as offensive, and we apologize to those who were offended.”
A similar spot shows Felicia the Goat acting violently toward a woman — this time, a waitress — in a crazed bid to get her hooves on the bright-yellow soda. MORE

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
