This, among many, many other reasons, is why I don't go to Six Flags anymore.

Hurricane Harbor looks like fun. I'm going to go there.

Except that I hate theme parks. I love rollercoasters, though. But I hate theme parks.

If this is racism does that mean that the previous Six Flags ad campaign with the dancing senior citizen guy was an example of ageism?

The only “racist” thing there is the fact that they obviously chose him because he looked so un-Asian lol!
Without the slight eye shape difference there's nothing to indicate it.



Which is a shame in a way… Are People from Asia only acceptable on U.S. TV these days if they either look extremely exotic like Lucy Lu, or almost indistinguishably Western like that guy? I'd hope not.

Well, I was going to say the whole part about an asian dude screaming what is almost engrish, but whatever. Also, this ad isn't really so good at showing what I was trying to say. The ones they play near us really show it off.

On another note, have any of you seen the latest kool-aid commercial where the huge kool-aid pitcher is playing basketball with a group of blacks and at the end they all run over to him in a mob worshiping it?

And I'm not joking about the commercial, that was just the stereotyped message I got.

Kool-Aid knows their target audience is all. I keep Crystal Lite in my trunk when I'm in the suburbs.

Let's get something straight, though…I don't drink Crystal Lite because I'm white, I drink it because that shit is delicious. Now, if you don't mind, I have some Crystal Lite Peach Tea to chug down. Yes I'm serious.

Edit: I put “Kook-Aid” by accident….X_x
