I hear the I and Iman get vexed by corporate America's insidious advertising more than most. But Iman try to (1) limit my exposure (2) temper my anger beca only I feel the anger the advertisers don't and (3) Iman try hard to support conscious businesses. Also Iman think its important to keep a sense of humor.
Just wondering: if this ad had trivialized and ridiculed say a bunch of white guys wearing ties and working in cubicles and betting on sports would the I have been equally offended?
I saw a movie the other night with Bill Murray called "Broken Flowers" this is the first time I have ever seen Rasta people portrayed respectfully in a mainstream American film. There is no direct mention of Rasta at all, but central to the story is the guy's buddy next door and his family. Their house has a huge picture of HIM and the Ites, Gold & Green are all around the house and the Mama and I think some of the pickney had dreads. It was nice to see Rasta portrayed as Iman can see it in real life instead of as silly joint smokin' reggae skankin' comic relief.
Iman don't watch commercial TV, but I can overstand being disappointed by the folly of mindless soulless advertising in blind pursuit of profit, don't expect them to change anytime soon tho.
Let the dead bury the dead, InI got works to do.
