Heavy-Metal Drummer Says He’s “Sick”
Of Seeing Interracial Couples
In Commercials

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 11/10/2019 5:53:57 PM

James Kottak used to drum with heavy metal band The Scorpions of “Rock You Like a Hurricane” fame after he was unceremoniously booted out—and mind you, heavy-metal boots are not only hard, they’re very pointy—a few years back for being a lush. (Snip)He recently tweeted that he felt modern advertisements were pushing an agenda of miscegenation that reflected nothing he’d ever seen out here in the real world with his bloodshot eyes: You know I am sick of every other commercial having inter racial couples…this is not reality. It is Hollywood shoving it down our throat. I don’t have one friend or friends who live in this category…just saying


This goes to a column of little articles. Scroll down to this one. I have known mixed race couples, but they are not as ubiquitous as the advertisers would have us believe. If I were a black woman, I would resent that the couples always seem to show a black man - in one car ad he is a doctor - with a white wife. Another ad featuring Gordon Ramsay has a young black man and his white girlfriend. Enough already!

The fact that his article was even written is more evidence that things may be swinging back the right way. There was an insurance company a year or two ago whos ads featured pretty much nothing but mixed race couples. It was gross. Now I notice all the family members in their ads are of the same race. I also notice a lot of ads with black families in them now have a father there. And he is a good guy being a good example for his kids. If kept up long enough, this could have a positive effect.

What these advertisers are doing is pushing an agenda. In the real world, there are inter-racial couples who are in very good relationships including marriages but these ads are designed to push a view as dogma.

In my whole life, I've known plenty of couples, but I've only known two interracial couples - both white/Asian. When you look at the statistics, 98% of whites marry whites, 89% of blacks marry blacks, and 92% of Asians marry Asians. Interracial couples are almost as scarce as gays and transgenders. So why are they so over-represented on television?????

I see a lot of inter-"racial" couples of all kinds (I'd call 'em inter-ethnic, really) and even multi-generational ones. They all seem to be military/former military families. So, Hollywood, who's "progressive" now?

I have no problem with 'miscegenation' - we are all equally God's children and quite frankly the children of mixed heritage are quite often especially beautiful. But we ARE in a cultural war against Satanic forces being told though the media WHAT we are supposed to admire. I am truly incensed that damn near every commercial and EVERY TV program now must show same sex coupling. We are being turned towards acceptance of perversion as being normal instead of sin. If my white daughter brought home a good black man to marry I would care not-at-all.

Yep, me, too. I have a white friend who married a black woman, two really great kids, but they divorced after about 7 or 8 years, just too many differences. IMO, the different cultures are difficult to bridge. But they are friendly and cooperated well in raising the kids, now in college. Life is hard enough. Don't give yourself a huge handicap right off the bat. Everything will be harder for you and for the kids.

My personal gripe is not that mixed race couples are displayed, but that easily 50% of the commercials show a Black person or persons when they are in fact, at most ,13% of the population. The advertisers must really be afraid of being sued for racial bias, so they tilt the other way. Often commercials 'just happen' to show a diverse group, many minorities, genders, ages, etc when that is out of touch with reality. Businesses are scared of being accused of Racism and so present fairy tales.

I am more concerned that it seems like every television show must have some gay, lesbian, or "transgender" (in quotes because there is no such thing) in it. They are a very minor percentage of our population but Hollywood is trying to make it look like this is the norm. It is not.

If they want to push an agenda how about a married black couple taking care of each other and their children. That would be different.

Uh-OH! SO politically incorrect, dude. Everybody's THINKING it but only a few are actually SAYING it. Why don't they leave us alone? Because they are pushing THEIR kind of "enlightened" diversity since they know exactly HOW we must be MADE to think. I am SICK of this attempted reality-alteration-by-advertisement But the do this because they are confident that we can be duped. That is what they think of our unwashed-masses intelligence. We need a button on our cable box labelled "Fire the AH who made this ad."

The only way we're ever going to really get rid of racism is to intermarry. Go for it, people. Latin America did it years ago. A few years ago, sociologists embarked on a study of what happened to Argentina's black people. They used to be a quarter of the population, the tango dance has African roots, and somehow they disappeared. They thought the Argies must have killed them off. Then they did some DNA tests. Turns out they married them.

Advertisers would be smart to avoid using humans in their ads at all. The "hit as many protected groups as you can" approach to hiring these actors is so phony as to be insulting.

Yes, that's bad, but what's also worse in my opinion are these hybrid-race people who look like they have a bit of everything in their family "woodshed." Skin like creamy coffee, Chinese slantiness, blue or green eyes, hyper-curly hair, etc. They're popping up in so many commercials, it's like a, "whaazat?" of racial uncertainty. We're even starting to see the adult girl in a bed with another adult girl crap too... sick b@stards. I wouldn't buy their crap if they were the last company on earth.

What I find amusing, and a little bit sad, is that while there is a whole bunch of diversity of the characters in a TV show when it comes to the good guys including police, lawyers, judges, victims and defendants who end up being innocent, there is very little when it comes to the perps. It has become a game for me to watch a show and count all the black people in the scene. Almost every judge and bailiff is black. Except when they turn out to be bad like on The Rookie and All Rise. They were white in those situations. I guess who the perp will be very early in the show and am right about 95 % of the time. Not because I am such a good detective but because I pick who fits the agenda. I can tell you from memory every time the perp was black on every show I have watched this year and its not many. Exception is Chicago PD. They do portray blacks as drug dealers. One thing they do is suspect a black person or persons at the beginning but then clear them and bring on the white perp. That happened on NCIS recently. I don't have a problem with diversity. I just think it would be nice if it was applied with a semblance of reality. This goes for the commercials referred to in this article as well as the TV shows.

If you had arrived from Mars in the last few days, and have since been watching the current batch of TV commercials, you could easily think that about 75% or more of the USA population is made up of Black folks rather that the actual 12%. It’s really funny when they try to feature Hispanic folks, as to get their point across they usually have to articulate a Hispanic surname a number of times when referring to the actors in the commercials.

What irks me more than interracial couples in commercials, is that whenever they show a black person in a commercial for some type of business or service, he or she is ALWAYS the person in charge or the one in authority advising a white person.

Not only are blacks over used in commercials, but if you watch closely they are now throwing in gay couples. It's usually fast and you might wonder if you really saw it but watching it the next time it's shown tells you yes, you did see two women/men kissing. And I've also noticed that many commercials have a neat, clean well dressed black person and a sloppy, hair uncombed white person. This is the reason I watch so little regular programming. That's why we now have Hulu, Netflix (don't watch that much), Firestick and a dozen other streaming services.

I’m sick of seeing them too and when my daughter marries her fiancé she will be part of a mixed race couple. The ads I really hate are the ones for wedding rings from Zales Jewelers which feature at least two inter-racial couples and a lesbian couple.

The dirty advertising secret is getting noticed first and foremost. One can't remember all the ads that offend them but the product has wormed its way into your mind. You are now aware of that product and that sells. Along the lines of no such thing as bad publicity. It's a cynical and destructive construct with short term gains, collateral damage is not considered.

On the subject of interracial couples, considerable media attention is being given to Megan Markle since her marriage to Prince Harry to the point of such focus and adulation that Duchess Catherine Middleton appears to be relegated to a lesser status even though Kate has a higher status among British Royals than does Megan due to Kate’s husband’s line of succession for England’s throne. In Megan’s favor, however, her selection of simple but elegant apparel does, for the most part, far surpass Kate’s fussy and frilly selections in clothing.

I thought the whole idea was to remove white christian men as the father/husband or in any position of authority. Hence white women married to black men in ads. White men only shown as part of a gay couple.

As Mark Steyn regularly points out, the purpose of Political Correctness is to make one not notice. Anything. Reverse discrimination appears universally acceptable to this day in this Country. If the conservative bench could accomplish one great good in this lifetime, it would be to move America toward a competence based, rather than identity based, society. What I find particularly alarming is the universal heard mentality of media. At a time when easy access to information and distribution channels should be broadening the cultures, beliefs and fashions to which we are exposed, we are experiencing exactly the opposite. We are constantly subject to uni-culture media content of anti-white, anti-male, pro-government, atheist, socialist, sexual libertine images and content.

Then, some whack job, no doubt decide the Cratchit Family had to be multicultural. That lasted one year. I don't remember the feedback, but I doubt it lacked the Christmas Spirit. I know I regret ever seeing that version.

EXCLUSIVE: A newly filed complaint to the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) alleges that the whistleblower whose allegations touched off House Democrats' impeachment inquiry may have violated federal law by indirectly soliciting more than a quarter-million dollars from mostly anonymous sources via a GoFundMe page. The complaint, which was filed last week and obtained by Fox News, alleged the donations from roughly 6,000 individuals "clearly constitute" gifts to a current intelligence official that may be restricted because of the employee's official position pursuant to 5 CFR 2635.203 and other statutes. To date, the GoFundMe has raised over $227,000.

Outgoing Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, a Republican, just lost the governor’s house to Democrat Andy Beshear by a slim margin. But President Trump won Kentucky by almost 30 points in 2016. Most reports concluded that Bevin had pursued too conservative a path, even for Kentucky. Many others were quick to tie the election to President Trump, and Trump’s alleged unpopularity among suburban voters, relative to a plain-vanilla establishment Republican.(Snip)Was Bevin problematic because he was too Trumpian? Not at all. Bevin “governed as a classic libertarian chamber of commerce type Republican.” In Enjeti’s words he was a “typical slash and burn corporatist governor in a solidly white working class state.”

There’s nothing like seeing #PeteForPresident trending in fourth place nationwide on Twitter to remind you Pete Buttigieg is still very much in this presidential race. In the crowded field of Democratic contenders for the White House in 2020, Buttigieg is near the top, polling behind only Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders.

Bernie Sanders, with 18- and 20-percent support respectively.
