Default WTF is wrong with commercials?

Every ****ing commercial (I really don't watch too much live TV anymore but.....) is either all ethnic, gay, mixed race and the list goes on. In a country that is 70+% white you expect me to believe that this "diversity" is the norm these days.

I'm so ****ing sick of this "diversity" bullshit being shoved down our throats every day when reality is vastly different.

Every company that I see showing this bullshit I write down and will not do business with them.

The TV feed I watch (digital antenna on my roof for broadcast channels), nearly all of the commercials are either Jimmy (JJ) Walker or Joe Namath yatting on about Medicare supplements and such. It's almost like there is a target market there or something.

This all started about 30 years ago when commercials began depicting men as stupid and their wives humiliating them by completing simple tasks that the supposed husband was unable to complete. I stopped doing business with companies that advertised that way, too.

It's just the liberal assholes trying to acclimate you to accept their perverse ways as normal.

Progressive Insurance Commercial with Dr. Rick preventing younger people from becoming their parents are witty and watchable.

The advertisers need to make sure they hit all the right buttons in each commercial. My guess is people sit and count POC and gays and complain when too few are in a single products adds.

In an all white humorous commercials; a white has to look like a stooge.

And if you want to think further; back in the days of radio it was all white, and crackers were invisible stooges.

There are more things to be cranky about than tv commercials that may or may not be purposely made to have whites appear to be dumb.

Although; take a look at antifa, msm, tide pod eaters, ***** hat wearers, haters of white Christian conservative males, pro mask-vax, etc... = predominantly white, so, it doesn't take a tv commercial for "an appearance of" when the real deal is played out daily.

Equally unrealistic. The chauvinist in me is very clear that a world run and maintained by women would collapse in within 28 days.

If men just came to a complete stop and stood in place or went home and did ZERO, things would turn to shit immediately. If women did the same, within a week, someone might notice.
