    The first one reminds me that I must quit procrastinating and order a genealogical DNA test. I may own part of a casino.

    I suppose there are (or were) instances of reverse stereotyping among blacks, Asians, and Indians, but I’ve not seen them. Examples, anyone?

      There is no such thing as “reverse stereotyping” or “reverse racism.”

      If there is, it was done as a response to the endless crap that “whites” shower on the rest of us.

      Clueless, much?
      Oh, right…you think that you’d own a casino! that says it all…


      • Thomas says:

        If there is no such thing as “reverse stereotyping” or “reverse racism” — a dubious assertion — then how do you “know” what causes it? Or are you just indulging in a racist mini-rant?

        My comment about the casino was facetious humor, which evidently escapes you. But I am sincere about my possible Native American ancestry, and will be proud of it if it’s proved.

    Awful, but they were commonplace then.

    The same ‘mindset’ creates them today – just tweaks them some with ‘sophistication!’
    Here’s one for you b.o.b.

    Those are startling, especially the one about Fairy Soap. That’s just cruel.

    • There were some that were much worse — I chose the least offensive ones. 🙂

      The Fairy Soap one I chalked up to children having no filter and just saying exactly what they think… like when you’re out in public with your three-year-old and she says loudly, “Mommy, why is that lady so fat?” or “Look, Mommy — that man has no legs!” and you cringe with embarrassment and wonder why you ever thought having kids was a good idea. 🙂

        Actually, the expression on the black kid’s face is classic. That kid is thinking “how stupid can you get.”

        People are way to sensitive. We overrate our intelligence.

    In China, similar ads are still being made:

    For some reason, we hear of no protests outside Chinese embassies / ad company offices…
