    Judging by the looks I often get from people when they find out where Im from, and the assortment of hilariously stupid questions that tend to follow, I think its a good assumption to say "no."

Ppl who are offended by this ad are ****ing stupid. If your portraying a race in a negative light then its racist but if its positive who the **** cares? Stupid. Its really pathetic that we as a society cant look past this bs..we all need to stop being so hypersensitive and just laugh at ourselves.

    But that's just it. He is speaking Jamaican. Jamaican is a country with all kinds of races and they do speak like that, even the white folks in Jamaica. It is an accent, it is the country's identity. It can not be a racist ad. Impossible.

    I have never been there and have never heard a white person speak like that..it was not just the accent its the words he is using. Never met a white person from jamica either so i have to plead ignorant on that...but i agree it aint racist.

    OK, let's place race for a minute. Let's say all Bahamians (sorry Tyler) and Jamaicans are black. What difference does it make? It is a language (English) with an accent. Just like England speaks English with a different access, or Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Australia or in the Caribbean St Lucia, Bahamas, Jamaica, Grand Cayman (just to name a few).

    We like to claim first rights to everything but English can not be one. As a matter of fact in the eyes of an Oxford English speaking person the American English sounds dumb and uneducated. Our English is merely a rip-off of the English language which has established itself over a few hundred years.

    We have no right to place judgement on another country's version of the English language. This whole notion that black people can't speak English will be thrown out of the window if you have ever heard a black English person speaking in its finest Oxford English. And he sounds so smart but we really don't know if he actually is smart.

    If an English person in the US says: Yesterday I smoked five fags. Are you suing him for discrimination or hate crime against gays? Because after all "smoking five fags" could be translated as 'beating up on 5 homosexual people' not "smoking five cigarettes".

    This whole PC crap is going overboard nowadays.

    What difference SHOULD it make? None.

    What difference DOES it make? There are people who make their living "race-baiting". No racism means no job so they have to find it or create it.

    It is a fact that at one time whites around the world treated non-whites very poorly. Therefore, anything that rich white descendants of slave owners think/consider/ponder or do in respect to non-whites IS racist. People who were white in the USA and what was to become the USA between 30-400 years ago were racist so whites must be racist now. It is safe for these people to assume that those who control Volkswagen are white because rich descendants of slave owners would never allow non-whites to rise to a position of power in the company - because their racist - a fact supported by circular logic that there likely aren't many minorities in the Volkswagen board room.
