What's With All of the Interracial Advertising?

My Recent Posts

Lately I've noticed an explosion of interracial advertising. Although it takes several forms, it overwhelmingly pairs black men with white women. Just about every commercial and ad I see these days features black men with white women. It ranges from them simply being together as in a group of friends, laughing and happy as per the usual "bandwagon" approach to advertising, but more and more, the couples being depicted are obviously living together, and a few even have kids. It's becoming ubiquitous.


To a much lesser extent, white men seem to be paired with Asian women. Even more rare are white men paired with black women. Now the advertising seems to be taking the next logical step; the ridiculous Gillette commercial seems to validate the concept that ALL WHITE MALES ARE EVIL. If Gillette's goal was to get rid of Evil White Male customers like me, they succeeded brilliantly! I got a good chuckle from another commercial that showed a white couple being married by a black minister; the camera slowly panned to the left, literally taking the white groom out of the picture...the white groom on the Right. A deft combination of the subtle and the not-so-subtle, that plug was.


Normally I'm not someone who gives much credence to conspiracy theories, yet this is obviously a well-coordinated and orchestrated campaign. Apparently the goal of the advertisers and the people who pay them is to get women in general, and white women in particular, to stay THE HELL away from Evil White Males at all costs. And some people wonder why there are so many mass shootings these days, by those same Evil White Males. Desperate people do desperate things, especially when they feel they're being squeezed.


The whole thing reminds me of a scene in the 1995 movie Braveheart:


Longshanks: Nobles. Nobles are the key to the door of Scotland. Grant our nobles lands in the north. Give their nobles estates here in England, and make them too greedy to oppose us.


Advisor: But sire, our nobles will be reluctant to uproot. New lands mean new taxes and they are already taxed for the war in France.


Longshanks: Are they? Are they? The trouble with Scotland... is that it's full of Scots! [everyone laughs] Perhaps the time has come to reinstitute an old custom. Grant them prima noctes. First night, when any common girl inhabiting their lands is married, our nobles shall have sexual rights to her on the night of her wedding. If we can't get them out, we breed them out. That should fetch just the kind of lords we want to Scotland, taxes or no taxes.


Advisor: A most excellent idea, sire.


Longshanks: Is it?


Good question there, Longshanks. That seems to be the Final Solution to the ruling class - Breed them OUT!!!!

 They want to show unity, but race relations aren't very good.

Used to be decades ago, if you did see a white man married to a black woman, the woman was pretty classy looking.  If you saw a black man married to a white woman, they were both from the dregs of society.
That's all changed today.  You see hot white chicks married to black men of all levels time today.  I attribute it to three things: 
1. Improved race relations
2. The demonization of the white man
3. White women wanting to prove how liberal they are
I guess the white male is left to his sex dolls or Asian women who still appreciate white males.  Asian women are still highly prejudiced against black males (outside the US).  Having said that, if you are a black male and want a Chinese girlfriend in China, you won't have a problem to find one.  Chinese women can be pragmatic.
I agree to an extent that the white population is being bred out of existence.

I knew of the approach to stop those long wars of old was to for women to close their box. I am surprised that withholding box from White brothers would drive them batty.

Michael on his latest caricature Jihad, against someone who criticized him.  Grow up!!  Still playing with picture books when you are a grown man.  You apparently didn't learn from the last time we clashed.  You get very emotional, and go on a weeks long binge, but those of us who value virtue, can wage war for years, and it gets worse as time goes on.  Lesson is not to tangle with those who use reason and logic, because your puny animal tactics will be overwhelmed every time.  You should have learned from SOT and Marilyn French, but you apparently didn't.  Pay attention to Jeff Michka.  He's on his last legs on here, and will soon be gone.

That said, the media is dominated by forces who say that the white straight male, you and I, are all devils, and we are the worst people who ever lived on planet earth. 
This media and our schools will preach that the past crimes of white people are very, very bad.  But, the past crimes of every other race don't really matter at all.  This is the 'equality', 'diversity', and 'tolerance' they are fond of.

This is a wide-spread phenomenon in the western culture, probably mass culture managers are afraid of being blamed as racists if there are only white actors in the advertising movies.

Jeff J, advertising execs tend to be less bright than most business people so I guess they haven't worked out it could have a negative effect in a society with an ethnic European majority.
This trend is very visible in UK too, and the working class white lads have noticed.

Jolly Roger, its part of the Kalergi plan which is usually dismissed as a conspiracy theory by leftists and world view thinkers. Richard Coudenhove Kalergi was an Austrian aristocrat of mixed Germanic - Japanese race who formulated a social engineering system to create a single, mongrel race by legally mandated interbreeding. There are plenty in the elite who think its a good idea, they're mostly same kind of people as think it's a good idea to implant wi-fi interfsces in our brains so we can all be controlled through Google data centres.

@ Ian T. - Yes, the campaign is global. It seems to be driven by people with Opher Goodwin's sentiments; I can hear him now:

"Oh goodness! Just as one world currency and one world government will solve all the world's problems, if there is only one race, then racism will stop too, won't it? Hmm...let's do what we can do, hee hee."

I don't see a problem with this. If anyone should be upset, surely it would be black women. 
Disclaimer: I am married to an ethnically Indian (like from India) woman. 
Cullen Kehoe Added Jan 27, 2019 - 7:53pm
My life experience tells me, contrary to everything Hollywood would say, that black women are often interested in dating white guys. It's just that they assume none are interested. 
Black immigrant women from the Caribbean love white guys. Young Indian girls (with families from India) love white guys. Asian girls usually like white guys. 
Pretty much, women of every race out there love white guys at this point in history (except maybe American white girls taught to have a bad attitude about everything in life by feminism).

The British with their 200 year long empire had countless examples of soldiers, diplomats, and everyone in between having local relationships with women when stationed abroad. 

Interracial relationships were common between black women and white guys for hundreds of years in North America (and not just slaveowners). In French Louisiania, ex: New Orleans, lots of free women with varying degrees of mixed race ethnicity had relationships, marriages, pseudo marriages with white guys for a couple centuries. 
Thomas Jefferson had a long term relationship with one of his slaves (alleged to have father 4-6 kids with her). She was 1/2 to 3/4 white and was his dead wife's half sister. The relationship began in France where she was technically free and not a slave. 
White guys living out West during the 17th and 18th century somewhat commonly took Native American wives (as did French Traders in the 1600 and 1700's). 
Interracial relationships have been going on since the beginning of time. It's kind of stupid for mass media to promote them because they do cause more problems at times, but they are nothing to be afraid of either, I'd argue.

When I was a young man working at Harley-Davidson in Milwaukee in the I.T. department, I had the black cleaning girl come chat with me for up to 10 minutes each night in my cube for months. I got the impression she had a crush on me. 

Then when I got moved to a different floor, a slightly older cleaning lady talked to me most nights and invited me to a cookout at a park in a questionable area of the city (for white people). I began to see that what Hollywood puts out about "black women this" or "black women that" isn't true. They like white guys (generally speaking of course). 
Seemingly women of all races do (generally speaking). And "race" is skin deep. Black Americans are part of Western civilization (as are Asian-Americans, Native Americans and every other color of Americans). You not "losing your civilization" or culture through interracial marriages, generally speaking, unless white girls are marrying Muslims guys straight off the plane from the Middle East.

Would you rather marry a blond hair, blued eyed entitled feminist or a nice, agreeable woman that isn't necessarily white? That's the real question.

Advertisers test their stuff with focus groups and online surveys; the goal is to maximize audience attention in a positive way.  It's not a conspiracy, just creative license supported by empirical research. If it bugs you, that's not altogether bad, from their point of view, if it gets your attention.  I
'm sure they'll get around to white men with black women, if that would please the likes of you.  
Ian Thorpe Added Jan 28, 2019 - 11:05am
Wake up Jim, advertisers tell you they test their stuff just like they tell you any product they are advertising is the best money can buy.
In reality their 'focus groups' are hand picked to reflect the anodyne, conformist view that fits with the official narrative. The misfiring of the Gilette toxic masculinity ad just recently is a perfect example.
Rusty Smith Added Jan 28, 2019 - 11:07am
Advertisers show people an appealing dream in an attempt to get you to buy their product because you believe buying their product will put you closer to that dream.
It's all all about money and what sells.  Just as we all know advertisers use good looking people because that attracts customers, they also use imagery that appeals to their target audience.  
Most very affluent Black men want a white trophy wife and that's what most get when they can afford one.  Athletes are a good example, the vast majority of Black Athletes switch to white women once they have enough money to attract one.
Where I live most poor Black men would rather have a fat ugly white woman than a nice looking Black one.  I feel sorry for the poor Black women, the only thing most poor Black men want out of them is free sex.  I've asked some why and been told Black women are too bossy and they like the more submissive attitude they get from white women.  I guess if white women give them more respect that might make sense.

All those commercials were vetted in front of focus groups. If the people with the big bucks didn't believe interracial commercials would sell things, the commercials wouldn't be on the tube.

I heard decades ago that California (and maybe its nationally now) required one-fourth of the people in a commercial to be black.  Maybe advertisers are taking it one step further and putting as much diversity as they can in commercials.

It could be possible that interracial advertising is simply following a well-established tradition of interracial mixing in America. 
All European ethnic groups freely intermingled in America in a manner never seen in Europe. To this day Europeans usually marry within their communities, thereby maintaining distinct ethnic identities from Portugal to Ukraine. Not in America and that is encouraged.
In addition, Americans have "absorbed" a good deal of Native Americans by marriage. since the children end up looking European the "native American" aspect is wiped out due to interracial marriages. 
This too is either encouraged or has no psychological effect on the White population.
To some degree, whites are not threatened by interracial marriages to Asians because the children look like White people and not Asian per se. I would also add Hispanics. Marriage to Hispanics usually produces white looking Children.
But blacks are the exception. Between dominant and recessive chromosomes, the character of a black person is dominant thereby producing black looking children. 
Michael B Bagala Added Jan 29, 2019 - 1:13pm
By showing black men with white women it could be the subliminal message of the "dominant black man's chromosomes" impregnating the receptive White woman whose "recessive chromosomes"  give way to the black race within her accepting womb. 
Gregory S. McNeill Added Jan 29, 2019 - 3:22pm
I disagree with you to a point. There are Black Men who also date Latina, Asian, and Middle Eastern Women. There are still Commericals which show White Men with Black Women. You have to look for it. 
Rusty Smith Added Jan 29, 2019 - 8:08pm
Gregory S. McNeill since your avatar is Black and you seem to be indicating you know a lot about Back men, let me ask you a few questions.
I can't help but notice that to me it looks like most Black men switch to White women when they can afford to attract them and if Black men truly like "Latina, Asian, and Middle Eastern Women", and I also hope Black women, why don't we see that?  
I think Black athletes make good examples, there are certainly lots of exceptions but the vast majority go for White women the second they start getting the big bucks.  If they were equally attracted to other ethnicities I would expect to see many more sporting them on their arm.
If that's the Black male dream, to have a White woman, then it makes perfect sense for advertisers to show Black men with White women in their ads... they are appealing to their dream.
Michael B Bagala Added Jan 29, 2019 - 8:41pm
I have to disagree with you. Blacks and Asians do not like each other. There is far more barriers between blacks and Asians than Asians and Whites.
both are visible minorities
both are considered people of color
but the rivalries and what keeps these 2 communities apart are greater than what attracts them. Because of that and God knows what else, in real life and in commercials "interracial" does not mean blacks and Asians.
Rusty Smith Added Jan 30, 2019 - 6:50pm
Michael B Bagala I know personal examples, like testimonials, can be quite biased, but I have known two Black men who very much prefer Asian women.  One has several kids, all by different Asian women.  All told him they couldn't get pregnant and all did.  He has money and I think that's the initial attraction for the women.  
I also know that Black men are very popular with the more progressive single women in Japan.  They get hit on a lot by Japanese women who aren't subtle about wanting to take them home for a spin.  I always presumed those women thought Black men were great lovers and that was their motivation, not that they wanted to marry one.
Michael B Bagala Added Jan 30, 2019 - 8:06pm
On a purely sexual level yes I agree. But on long term stable relations it is not that simple. 
Asians identify with Europeans because of history. 
same with blacks. Blacks identify with whites because of history.
There is little in common between Asian cultures and African cultures because history did not bring these cultures together. 
It gets more complicated. Black Americans have traveled the least to other shores to see the world. Poverty is a big reason. Fear is another. blacks fear traveling to "strange places" like Asia or Africa. That tells a lot.
One time I showed two nice church-going black ladies of the Temples of India. The only way they could find a point of reference to these "strange structures" is through the bible and verses of "pagan temples"
