I just saw an ad for State Farm where the pizza delivery person gives Jake a gallon jug of ranch. This wouldn’t have happened if the agency had BIPOC working for them.

I’m sorry, but the more ranch the better with my pizza.

OP there’s actual tone def cultural ignorance, and then there’s your comment. As a POC I think its necessary/crucial to bring awareness to wrong doing and hold those accountable who portray us inaccurately as cultural stereotypes. However, It’s reckless to try to point the finger and allege wrong doing where there is none because it infuses/sows unnecessary hate and division and it also hurts our efforts to actually bring accountability when harm is done. Ranch is culturally American as is dipping pizza or Buffalo wings in it. Black, White, Brown .... people dip pizza in ranch. Moreover, the concept isn’t about giving this black man a ton of what “he” (the black man as a stereotype) wants, but rather reward “him” (the agent/brand) with extra product as a barter/gratitude.
-
So before you point the finger ask yourself, is this actually discriminatory, culturally tone deaf, prejudicial work, or is it your own personal interpretation that’s got you butt hurt. Think critically before you accuse. 🤷🏾‍♂️
