Let's review Wal-mart ads again for a moment, shall we?
- Wa--Mart employs older people and immigrants. A noble cause to be sure but are the immigrants legal? After the recent trouble Wal-Mart had for employing illegal immigrants, I have not personally seen this ad again.
- Wal-Mart helps keep prices down for women who are white and are trying to have enough kids to start their own football team. These women stay at home because having kids is a full time job.
- Wa-lMart likes to help impoverished and communities in trouble. The communities are where the black people with no jobs live.
What is Wal-Mart trying to say? The only reason why I noticed the Wal-Mart ad tonight was the fact I saw a black woman wearing the vest. Now I know there has been some complaints in the past about Wal-Mart ads- hey do they have black people who work there? Do black people shop there? When we do get a Wal-Mart ad featuring blacks, the ad is stressing.g how the chain improves the community and provides jobs.
I hate to burst Wal-Mart's dream of America but there are such things as "white " impoverished communities or ghettos... the only thing is that when white people live there, its never called a ghetto, is it? I wouldn't have such an issue with the Wal-Mart ad if it had featured blacks in the same light as the baby popping, happy mothers of 648 kids. Or how being a greeter at Wal-Mart makes them feel good. Instead they chose to feature an ad that talks about improving the comunity... and that community just happens to be black.
Come on Wal-Mart, tell us how you really feel.
