There is a new advertising campaign promoting birth control in Portland. The campaign aims to dispel myths about birth control. What stood out to me was the fact they just had to have a black man/white woman couple in the picture. I then came across the ad with a white man/white woman combo, and lo and behold the white man is a fat dork. The white guy looks like a total loser while the black guy, although not exactly handsome, looks at least like a guy who could actually “get laid.”
Apparently advertising has a general rule: Show black men with white women as often as possible, portraying them as young and virile. When showing white men, make sure they appear weak, effeminate, or unattractive. The purpose of this is obvious: to encourage miscegenation.
Here are the ads. I suppose if they were really interested in educating the public they could include a quote in one of those bubbles like: “Half of all AIDS victims in America are black, so better not even lay down with this guy.”
