The Red House Commercial: Cough up those furballs of hate!

Remember when I posted the Red House Furniture ad on a Sunday Funday? Black White Yellow and Red: Furniture against racism!

This is the follow up video that the producers made to try to answer some of the outcry against the ad that labelled it ‘racist’.

In one of the comments someone mentioned ‘compulsory colourblindness’.

I think pussy-footing around and not mentioning ‘race’ at all for fear of offending builds great furballs of hate and turns people catty. (sorry about that! :-))

However, calling someone a ‘black c…’ like Paul Gallen, captain of the Sharks National Rugby League team did in a game last Saturday is racist, I think, because it is ‘hate-ist’.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
