Re: Is this ad racially offensive?

lots of real issues in the world, no need to manufacture more. mimicking the accent is fine even with piss poor execution. if i got offended every time someone offered a "whats up mon?" id be a continually mad ico. (btw most real Jamaicans don't say 'mon" unless imitating foreigners)

the idea that Yardies are somehow more mellow &/or laid back is belied by per capita murder statistics.

on the bright side ... luv Jimmy Cliff!
