Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad ignites online debate

Feb 3, 2014 Full story: TheBostonChannel.com 900

Coca-Cola's Super Bowl commercial Sunday night was at first glance a moving tribute to America's diversity, featuring a full minute of ordinary people of different races and ethnicity doing ordinary American activities, as the classic song "America the Beautiful" plays throughout the ad.

You could be right, but it came in the middle of an immigration reform debate in Washington. Coincidence? Bad timing if it was.
I didn't need a Bob Costas gun control rant either.
Considering we've been in the middle of an immigration reform debate in Washington for the past decades and likely will be for the coming decades, I don't see when would have been better timing.

My point was our "American culture" being an amalgamation of world cultures has as much bad as good.

I see this ad as a celebration of the good, not an indication of the bad.

And there's that typical confederate ignorance again.

There are MILLIONS of blacks living all across the north, in big cities, suburbs, smaller cities & towns, and even in the countryside.

Many blacks are returning to the south to reconnect with family they left behind during the great northern migration to get away from your constant discrimination. Now they're going to back to take control of the south.

Whites will become a minority in the south once again, but this time you won't be in charge. You better hope they treat YOU better than you treated THEM.

I'm so pissed about this commercial.

HOW DARE Coca Cola has the gall to purposely make America look like it is part of the rest of the world. Just because Coca Cola is a GLOBAL company, they want to imply that America is part of the same world. Coke made America look like some kind of "melting pot" where different cultures come together in the greatest country in the world and then these people still retain their own culture, like it's important to maintain your own identity. This is America! If you are here, in the land of the free, you had better forget where you came from. We don't want to hear other languages, eat strange foods, or play soccer for that matter.
Where the hell does Coke get off trying to make America look like a good place for foreign people to come and be happy with their families and maintain their own culture, those sons of bitches.
How dare they imply America is welcoming place where other cultures are accepted and we can all live together and keep America the best place in the world. Like it's our diversety that makes this the greatest country the world has ever seen. NO it is the fact we all speak English that makes America great. IT is the fact that foreigners either completely assimulate to our culture, and leave their personal identity behind or stay in the shadows ashamed of who they are or how they got here.
Damn you Coca- Cola. How dare you assume America is the land of the free and the home of the brave. Go sell your damn drinks at the freakin' Olympics. bastards.

<quoted text>You are living a lie. Here's a couple facts for you to gnaw on. Two plus two equals four, there are twenty four hours in a day and marriage is between one man and one woman. Simple, huh? You can call your living arrangements anything you want, and you can have black robed tyrants overturn the will of the people and shred our constitution. But you cannot change facts.
Sorry Charlie, but the definition of marriage now includes same-sex couples.

Accept it and move on.

Or bitch about the rest of you pathetic life and die.

The choice is yours.

I agree the ad was noble in purpose, but the way it was done caused it to be taken the wrong way by a lot of people.

<quoted text>Yo turd. No matter what your allegedly open but obviously brainwashed, small mind tells you, if a person only speaks English, they will do infinitely better in this country than if they only speak ANY other language. What do they speak in congress? What does the president speak? You're nothing more than a brainwashed person who gets all their opinions from the liberal media, "DEAR". You keep challenging people to prove you are a liberal but all anyone has to do is read 3 of your posts and it's pretty obvious.
What makes you think they can't speak English as well as their native language?

Just because YOU'RE too stupid to be able to learn more than one language doesn't mean everyone else is that dumb.

Not speaking a common language has actually separated people in this Country, does nothing to improve those nationalitys or there incomes. Why it doesn't work, do you go to France, or Sweden and tell them to GFT or learn Spanish? Do you want to become a French citizen or a sub-culture of non French speaking people? Then why didn't Coke realize that fact when they nauseated Americans? We always bought Coke product's and yesterday, I went to Pepsi. bye bye coke.....idiot's.
I'm sure you buy KKK brand products as well.....

I doubt Coke will miss you.

The gunz..da gunz.....People accept what is pushed on them whether right or wrong. History proves it. The real test of acceptence will be if/when times become real, real, real, real bad. But hey,...the destruction of traditional marriage, the massive increases in single parents and the the associated costs that are at least several times more then what it used to cost in real terms to raise a kid is not something we can question. We ain't number one anymore with all the bad you assail our past for. And without pilot less drones capable of holding explosives, chemicals, and biological weapons to keep the rest of the world in tow and ourselves, we' d be a second rate nation cannibalizing ourselves. Wait, we are. One trillion dollars cut from future social security/medicare expenses already. Wait until that crap hits the fan as three million boomers are retiring a year. or joining the system they paid into for many decades. No guts to make the real cuts yet. City, state and local governments are struggling with their promises. Watching all of the progressive failures that are never broadcast but all around for all to see causes people to question things. And you can't fix it. So the logical answer is to blame others. The Christians and innocent white males will see a transition if this is not the religious end times. And you is it. Even if it is the end times. You get it after. Don't bitch and be miserable about it. iits pre written.

That is a Saul alinsky answer. i would not expect anything less from the likes of you. But then again in real terms, inside your skull you realize what I write has truth to it. So your hate and bitterness knowing that you will not win this so called war you are at with everyone else is going to be won. The battles will continue with the sell outs and emasculation of the general population. They will even let their five year old sons dress in pink tutus at schools for the evil system that has been set up. All you had to do was use sense in your movements. But people don't stop. They always interfere with others. Now the biggest suckers in America are those married with children paying for all others. The breeders really are just that now. Congtratulations.....And the totalitarian state advances.....its only logical...
