PIX POLL:  Is the Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad racist or are people taking it the wrong way?

Is it unfair that you can’t even vote for the Arab character to win the race?

    If they made the guy with the camel a contender at some point, it would at least explain why they are in the ad at all. As it is presently edited, it appears that they are weak and out of the race completely, while very "American" contenders (cowboys, over the top entertainers, etc…) battle it out. Racist? I don't know about that, but there's definitely a deeper meaning than just schlepping soda!

    whatever happened to watching a commercial for entertainment value and nothing else. This world has become overly PC, come on ladies and gentlemen put on your big girl/boy panties and enjoy the show!!

    I didn't catch any racism. And I must have missed the voting for the Arab cause I don't know what you mean. I guess I'd have to watch it again and look for racism in an even different way than I did the first time. NOT!

    I missed it….there was almost every race in the commercial..is it racist because coke left out an Asian cowboy? I don't get it

    Seriously … why can’t we just enjoy entertainment for what it is! Not everything has a hidden agenda.
