How to Turn Physical Comedy into a Race Issue, by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee

Written By : Duane Lester

If you didn’t see the Super Bowl, you didn’t see this ad air:

Now that’s funny…unless you are an incredibly dense, race baiting Congresswoman:

Jackson Lee said it was ridiculous for the soft drink maker to air the advertisement during African-American history month.
“In this month of African-American history where we’re trying to celebrate what is good and great, it certainly seems ridiculous that Pepsi would utilize this kind of humor,” she said. “It was not humorous. It was demeaning — an African-American woman throwing something at an African-American male and winding up hitting a Caucasian woman.”

Jackson Lee said she has a sense of humor and believes in the First Amendment. She also said the Super Bowl is a great time for “fellowship” with family members.

“That is why I’m so disappointed with the Pepsi advertisement that showed a demeaning role for African American women, in an ad that showed a can being thrown and being utilized to wound someone else or hit someone else,” she said.

I wonder what that’s like. I mean, I wonder what it is like to see an ad like that and not see the awesome humor that is physical comedy, but to only see the density of melanin in the skin cells of the actors.

It must be awful.
