If one subscribes to the view that politics is now really all about the economy, i.e. selling stuff to people, (especially in high immigrant places like NYC and London where Gentile White people are now the smallest minority, with probably the lowest birth rates to boot), then surely one would expect the algorithm-driven corporate entity marketing/adverting machines to have become optimized to profit from the groups which are numerically growing (fastest) and are relatively easier to sell to / i.e. are more profitable?

It’s almost as if every television ad these days features a black woman married to a white man living in a nice house in the suburbs because blacks are the most brand-obsessed and least good deal-interested set of consumers.

  1. Yup, right on cue, just got a slick Dell circular for the holidays — cover photo a nice smiley young black woman with a huge mop of unruly hair.

    I wouldn’t say the white guys with diverse famblies are portrayed as dumb, more like mild-mannered nice guys, self-satisfied with their open-minded inclusivity.

    Maybe White racial dispossession is a form of taxation.

    “You have something, so it will be taken away and given to someone else. For the greater good.”

    Whites have (had) the most, so they give the most.

    They are also able to spool up and pay even more such tax (for a while.)

    My favorite commercial is the one with a White dad, black mom, and two Hispanic kids… just completely normal, don’t even think twice about it no time or you’ll be convicted of thought crimes.

    On a side note, I now carry around a clown horn, and anytime anyone even slightly notices or mentions how absurd our new reality is, I pull it out and give it a couple of honks and say “welcome to clown world!”… it’s amazing the reactions I get ranging from laughter to anger; comedy is a powerful tool, even more so when you’re mocking ones entire existence.

    This WM/BF ad trend must be fairly new, as I haven’t noticed, but also rarely watch commercials: usually at the gym or visiting elderly relatives, which I’ve not done lately.*

    I think Big Ad correctly assumes non-elderly WMs don’t watch commercials other than live sports.

    A shift I have noticed is WMs under 40 or so, and assimilated non whites too, now are lot more open about spending big money and time on video games and talk about pro sports far less than even a year ago.

  6. I think Steve has it backwards at least according to my admittedly limited TV watching. We turn the TV on at 5:30pm Central to watch the 3 major network news programs, ABC, NBC, and CBS. The ads at this time period mainly promote prescription drugs for horrible diseases (it seems the demographic that mostly watches evening news are elderly) and automobiles. The percentage of blacks in the ads is striking; sometimes only blacks are shown. When blacks and white are shown together it is always a black man with a white woman often blond, never a white man and a black woman. That pairing plays into the universal desire for black guys to have blond wives or the approbation of woke white viewers for that sort of mating. My best guess in reverse engineering the ads is that advertising psychologists’ assumption is that white viewers/customers have overwhelmingly bought into the narrative of diversity, that viewers’ high opinions of themselves for being pro diversity are being stroked by the ideology of those ads. Which makes them want to buy the product more. The advertisers themselves may or may not endorse diversity, but they understand contemporary mass psychology.

    The ads I see are a limited subset of TV ads surrounding the evening news. Ads during the rest of the day may differ. YMMV

    Again, the ads I see don’t seem to be directed towards potential black customers. Blacks don’t watch the TV evening news, nor spend much time telling their private doctors what pricey drugs they want to have prescribed for their diseases.

  7. ma says:

    The reason is, of course, an attempt to ‘dilute’ whiteness. It mostly began with white woman/black man ads. Those worked better inasmuch as women tend to be more easily influenced by programming, and in any case are less visually oriented when it comes to mates, or hook-ups.

    White man/black woman ads will not work the same way, because men tend to be visually oriented when it comes to sexual preference, and black women are not attractive to most white men–even the ‘mulatto’ types with the frizzy hair that you see in the ads.

    The obvious question is why there aren’t many white man/Asian woman ads? Asian women tend to be attractive to white men.

  8. A lot of people in the online alt-right communities seem to be concerned about the number of blacks on TV.

    It all makes sense when you realize how much more TV blacks watch than the other races. Esoecially whites.

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/411806/average-daily-time-watching-tv-us-ethnicity/

    https://www.northwestern.edu/newscenter/stories/2011/06/media-usa-youth-wartella.html

    Minority youth aged 8 to 18 consume an average of 13 hours of media content a day — about 4-1/2 hours more than their white counterparts, according to a Northwestern University …

    Watching TV and movies is very much a “nonwhite” thing.

    When you become aware of this, you realize just how overrepresented white people actually are on TV. And if a white person can watch TV, there is something suspicious about them…

    Why do almost all tv ads feature a dumb white husband with a smart black wife?

    Because the risk-weighted cost to a corporation (its CEO and other management, actually) of being called racist outweighs the cost of alienating a few Whites.

  17. Or the black doctor who sings to distract the rambunctious kid of the black patient he’s talking to via internet. That’s totally realistic!

  18. theMann says:

    As far as I know, Whites are still 65% of the country, Blacks are 13%. (More or less). I assume that the television advertisements you refer to are national broadcast advertisements, or at least regional broadcasts, so…..

    No part of that analysis holds water. In addition, most non-Black Immigrants hold extremely unenlightened views of Blacks, so, …….. double plus stupid advertisements.

    The only marketing reason I can see for the Ads is psychological- to piss people off a little so they remember the Ads. Otherwise it is the usual self-destructive Wokeism – stroking themselves with their virtue signaling is far more important than effective advertising.

    Households of high earning husbands and spendthrift wives are every marketer’s dream, followed by those of older couples having their first and perhaps only child.

  22. People that get marketing degrees tend to be liberal and buy into emotionally driven arguments.

    It’s an easy degree that demands a lot of partying. It has practically zero math requirements.

    They tend to be bitter against other Whites and “the system” early on. People really have no idea as to how many of these marketing grads are cranked out by the colleges. So they immediately find themselves in ruthless competition for a very limited number of jobs.

    As liberals they aren’t simply content to make commercials that sell laundry detergent with catchy jingles. In their minds they are helping “right the world” with this type of messaging. They think equality would exist if not for environmental influence. So their commercial about a Black wife helping a dopey White husband light a campfire is a counterweight to what they see as harmful messaging from bad Whites. They also see miscegenation as a virtue even though I would bet that 3/4 are NYC White women that are looking to date Manhattan type White men and quit their marketing jobs.

    “If one subscribes to the view that politics is now really all about the economy, i.e. selling stuff to people…”

    If not the case already, it soon will be: every publicly listed US company, if made to choose between of the ~340M US or the ~1,300M China consumer markets, will choose the later. They would have to, it would be their fiduciary responsibility as a public company. That’s why, inclined to or not, their “vote” has to be with what makes China happy. What’s best for the US is of secondary concern; Joe highest bidder Biden, or his son, can set one crack straight if they are hazy as to how these things work.

    Those famous White male “celebritards” must be crazy, either that, or the Black wife is just “a beard.” Maybe “their agent” said, “Bobby, baby, I think your career would go a whole lot further if we had you involved with the Black wife thingie. Bobby, think of how hip and cool that would look. Bobby baby, your a born rebel, my man. Celebritard goes along with the Black wife thingie, hey, baby, I am an actor is this is acting, baby. Seriously, why would a NORMAL White male find a Black woman more attractive than a White female. When you think these rich White males can get an attractive female, doesn’t even matter if the White male is ugly, remember Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley? Of course, Joel is Jewish, so maybe he had the shiksa thing going on with Brinkley. I mean, DeNiro isn’t exactly Elvis Presley in the looks department, but hell, he looks better than Mick Jagger, and everyone knows Jagger has bagged no telling how many gorgeous babes just because he is famous. Imagine IF Mick Jagger was a janitor? His sex appeal to the opposite sex would be a negative 543. Can you think of any Black woman attractive enough for you to dump someone like an Ann-Margret?

    Early in Covid I finally “cut the cord” by getting rid of the TV part of my Comcast subscription. I switched to paying for Hulu w/o ads tier (the plain service, not the live TV one) and I also watch some Netflix and Amazon Prime.

    One effect is that I just see very few ads now and it’s great! I save a good 10 or 14 minutes an hour for amount of content watched and there’s just less stuff bombarding my brain. I’m never going back if I can help it.
    I only see ads on YouTube, but those tend to be fairly different.(*)

    I wonder what effect cord cutting has on the TV ad audience. I’d bet it skews it significantly compared to the overall population and even to to the “TV” watching population.

    If the target audience is wealthy white liberal women it makes more sense. There maybe fewer of them but they spend more and fall for tokenism every single time.

    I’ve only seen a few ads like that, but they do seem to be increasing.

    I’d say that 99% of all ads feature some variation on the following themes:

    1. well-dressed, light-skinned blacks in a luxury home with luxury SUVs engaged in white, bourgeois activities like golfing or checking a stock portfolio
    2. black man and white woman
    3. smart white woman, dumb white man
    4. smart black man, dumb white man

    Saw one the other day that practically made me scream. It was an ad for a home security system that gave live video feeds of the security cams to your cell phone, and it depicted a bunch of wealthy blacks driving a luxury car and watching on their cell phones as a white guy breaks into their McMansion.

    It is ironic that White men are depicted as the devils of society and yet most Black women would happily marry one.

    Most Black women are unmarried and at most have a “baby daddy” that doesn’t pay the bills. A middle class White man would be a dream come true for them.

    Hispanics joke that marrying a White man is just as good as getting a college degree.

    Um, a lot of words there, but I think you’re on to it: it all boils down to giving a finger to regular people (who are all dumb racist hicks, of course).

    Not really a beard as such, but the traditional fact is that rich/famous people, like old time royalty, can have access to all the chicks they want, so who they marry is largely a matter of making a statement, cementing an alliance, access to more wealth and land, etc.

    As for Jagger, was it Allan Bloom who pointed out that prior to the 60s he would have been considered a grotesque, like Quasimodo. In fact it was Brian Jones, the traditionally handsome even pretty one, who was popular with the girls, not Mick; that’s why he had to be pushed out eventually.

    Mexicans are MIXED but as a group I see far less Mexican women dumping their men for another race. The only reason you don’t see more White male/Black female couples is because MOST White males don’t find the average Black woman attractive at all. I can tell you from experience that a lot of Black women will date a White man in a heart beat, but the White man don’t want no part of that. hehe.

  56. Even if you watch little or no TV, you’re still exposed to a range of promo materials as you walk down the street, drive down the road or glance at your junk mail (to say nothing of internet ads and the stock photos companies use on their websites). The White male-black female trope is a mainstay on my bank’s ATM screens, brochures, website and lobby posters.

    Again I think the white men in these situations are made to look mildly positive — but I do recall the car rental ad with the savvy young black woman exec and the dopey naive young white guy on a business trip.

    I never thought there was any need for him in the first place. BTW, interesting to hear Coates describe how horrible things were under Trump, a president who knocked himself out trying to improve the situation of blacks. I guess blacks have demonstrated once and for all that no politician of either party should bother acting upon the interests of blacks. Whether you do nothing for them or a great deal, their vote is a given: always Democrat, never Republican. No reason to imagine that will change under any circumstances.

    no longer were 1 in 3 people african in commercials, almost overnight it became 80 to 90 percent. plus more homosexuals, transexuals, and even a few more mexicans and indians and arabs.

    it almost like…the ad agencies had things lined up and ready to go.

    I don’t recall ever knowing a woman who felt the slightest twinge of guilt about taking another woman’s man. In my experience, they view it as a coup and a tribute to the power of their allure. But maybe this is just a reflecttion of the kind of women I’ve known, though I doubt it.

    An interesting observation, but it lines up with the progressive cultural outlook that places black women at the center of the universe culturally and politically. Incidentally, it also a kick to the crotch of black men, who based on some of my social media interactions, are seething at being relegated to the back seat by progressives other than as the occasional victim of violence at the hands of cops. The white dude might be second fiddle in these commercials but at least he’s got the attractive and successful woman, the house, the kids, etc.

    The natural role of a man is as the provider and protector of his family, and obviously that’s not the case in far too many cases for black men in America today. Nevertheless, there are black men that want to re-assert that role (and would be good for blacks and America at large, in my view) but are shoved out of the way by their supposed allies in favor of women, gays, trans, etc. I think there is a huge opening for the GOP when it comes to Latinos and black men to be the party of traditional masculinity, if they have to brains to follow the cultural roadmap Trump has uncovered.

    You’re correct, the ads aren’t aimed at blacks, they’re just trying to push the agenda on Whites. However, lately I’d say there’s as many if not more commercials with White men and black women.

    I think the the thing that disturbs me the most about the “woke” culture is how it imitates real life, but there’s nothing truthful about it. There’s a number of shows on the streaming services that strictly cater to the woke feminist mindset. What strikes me about every single one is how distorted their perception of reality really is. They play off of every anti-White fiction created over the past 50 years, as if this is the true world; with a sense of smugness to go with it. It’s unnatural, just like the woke commercials.

This author doesn’t come across as notably insightful, or kind, or generous in spirit. He ends “Between the World And Me” by invoking a curse on the White Suburban College Graduates who select BTWAM for their book clubs.

    The only commercials I see are on youtube, so I don’t know how they compare with TV. I’m guessing they’re mostly TV ads. I have noticed a conspicuous increase in interracial marriage ads over the last year or so, but I mostly just notice an increase in non-white ads. Obvious black voices narrating ads for investment firms or medical services will be of dubious impact, IMO, as general black incompetence in financial or health matters isn’t something that’s easily glossed over with an ad…yet this is fairly commonplace nowadays. This is corporate America being “moral” or “relevant”, however interracial or black ads don’t have the negative impact on me that they once did because so many of us now see corporate America as a extension of Hollywood and the media; we disregard such ads the way we would a NYT political article.

    Still, I definitely recognize the brainwashing power of their approach. I recently saw an advertisement on you tube that had a young, pretty and conspicuously white mom dancing in a conga line through her house with her equally attractive (and conspicuously white) children. I thought to myself, Wow, I wonder how long networks will allow commercials like this? Not only is everyone in this commercial white and attractive, but the conga line would constitute cultural appropriation in the eyes of everyone who has an X in their name. I then thought to myself how strange it was that this should be my first to an an ad that would’ve been innocuous to everyone (even non-whites) just five years ago.

    2000 – 58 million – 67% of the population

    there are 9 million less whites in this key demographic compared to 20 years ago. The decline is accelerating , as the under 20 population is just 50% white today. The average white American is 45 years-old , while the average non-white is just 31 years-old. Since advertising for most products is aimed at those under the age of 45 we should expect fewer and fewer whites in commercials.

    A predecessor company to Dominion was founded by Venezuelans who were close to Hugo Chavez.

    Rudy Giuliani, who Trump has entrusted with running his election challenge operation, explained the theory this weekend on Fox News.

    “It’s way beyond what people think, including a very, very dangerous foreign company that did the votes in 27 states, a company that’s not American, a company that’s foreign, a company that has close, close ties with Venezuela and, therefore, China and uses a Venezuelan company software that’s been used to steal elections in other countries.”

    “I mean, I don’t think people have any idea of the dimension of the national security problem that Dominion creates. This Dominion company is a radical-left company. One of the people there is a big supporter of antifa and has written horrible things about the president for the last three or four years. And, the software that they use is done by a company called Smartmatic, a company that was founded by [Hugo] Chávez and by Chávez’s two allies, who still own it. And it’s been used to cheat in elections in South America. It was banned by the United States several — about a decade ago. It’s come back now as a subcontractor to other companies. It sort of hides in the weeds. But Dominion sends everything to Smartmatic. Can you believe it? Our votes are sent overseas. They are sent to someplace else, some other country. Why do they leave our country?”

    “And this company had — and this company has tried-and-true methods for fixing elections by calling a halt to the voting when you’re running too far behind. They have done that in prior elections. Now, what happened on election night? He [Trump] was ahead by 800,000 votes in Pennsylvania. Impossible to catch up, unless you’re cheating, and same thing in Michigan, Wisconsin. He was ahead in all those states by numbers that, in prior times — and I can show this to you — networks would have called for him. But they didn’t call it for him.”

    Note that this contributes further to the tendency of WNs to put race-loyalty above sexual orientation in their sexual partners. The advertisers obviously have greatly overestimated the number of WNs, as well as the amount of disposable cash that WNs have. They are thus paying for national advertising to troll a group that is just 10% of white males (and thus 3.25% of the total adult population).

    We know very well that many if not most WNs openly say that they would rather have sex with a white man than a black woman, since race loyalty trumps sexual orientation in their view. Plus, they say that having no baby is better than having a mulatto baby.

    This also explains why WNs have no problem with transgenderism, since the race of the person did not change, so the transformation is a non-event to WNs in terms of sexual preference.

    This, of course, explains why White Trashionalism carries zero appeal with normal heterosexual white people.

    I have a better question: How much more politically correct, idiotic, vulgar and demoralizing does “television” have to become before people how should know better turn it off for good?

    A distant cousin of my wife married a Ghanaian girl. I have seen a wedding photo – at that time she was actually kind of hot with a clear chocolate brown complexion and a model figure. She also had a nice personality and was more intelligent than the average ADOS – her father was some kind of Ghanaian diplomat. She lacks the chip on the shoulder that most American black women carry around with them. I really could see why he went for her and as a Harvard grad he could have rated more than a 4/10 white girl.

    But fast forward 10 yrs and now she had ballooned to typical African woman proportions and is as wide as she is tall.

    The marriage did not last because the husband, unfortunately turned out to be mentally ill despite his Harvard degree. It’s just as well because nowadays she might accidentally crush her former spouse.

    The one good thing to come out of the marriage was their Obama-like son who is as sharp as a tack. If this kid does not inherit his dad’s bipolar he will be well positioned in the New America.

    It’s rare in my experience to see white dudes with black wives in ads. It’s probably more common IRL. What I will say is that these huge corporations are happy to put short-term and maybe even long-term profit second to social engineering. Rothbard was wrong to say that corporations’ only purpose is to make profit. Or maybe that was true during his lifetime. It’s unquestionably false today.

    https://www.axios.com/corporate-america-black-employee-turnover-rate-91563b14-c87b-435b-b157-0443c586735d.html

    Systemic racism is leading to a turnover problem in corporate America: Companies have a hard time holding on to Black employees.

    Why it matters: Beyond affecting individual professionals and teams, a corporate culture that causes attrition can spread rot through entire companies.

    Driving the news: If companies don’t pay attention to their corporate culture, the pandemic and remote work could drive the Black turnover rate even higher, experts say.

    “Remote work can exacerbate the problem because there’s less person-to-person contact,” says Patrick McKay, a professor of human resource management at Temple University.
    In-person encounters with colleagues who don’t look like you chip away at your biases, but those biases can stay strong when we’re all working from home, he says.
    By the numbers:

    33% of Black professionals don’t feel respected or valued at work, per a recent survey from the Society for Human Resource Management. Compare that with 18% of their white counterparts.
    That pushes people out the door. According to a report from the Center for Talent Innovation, more than one-third of Black employees intend to leave their companies within two years, and Black professionals are 30% more likely to intend to leave than their white counterparts.
    At Google, which releases turnover statistics, Black employees make up less than 3% of the workforce and have an attrition rate that is 13% higher than the national average.
    “There’s a progression model,” Derek Avery, a business professor at the University of Houston, tells Axios.

    “Things like microaggressions and harassment lead people to withdraw psychologically, which causes higher levels of burnout and lower levels of engagement. Then there’s physical withdrawal: tardiness, absenteeism and ultimately turnover,” Avery says.
    What’s happening: While many companies are trying to address the issues through implicit bias trainings or recruiting initiatives, these efforts can feel like “slapping a Band-Aid on a tumor,” says McKay.

    “Deep down, organizations are highly inertial,” he adds.
    Steps that could actually chip away at the turnover problem include adding transparency to recruiting and promotion processes, setting up ways in which employees can report discrimination, and holding aggressors accountable, McKay says. “But organizational policy infrastructures are rarely changed to support diversity.”
    There are even stark differences in how workplace racism is viewed within HR departments — the very bodies tasked with addressing it. In the SHRM survey, 49% of Black HR professionals reported observing racial discrimination at work, compared with 13% of white HR professionals.
    The stakes: Black employees who get fed up and leave might have trouble finding their next job.

    “You look like a job hopper to potential employers,” says McKay. “And they’re not aware of the job climate you dealt with previously.”
    And for the companies themselves, there’s a lingering “secondhand smoke effect,” Avery says. White employees who aren’t experiencing the discrimination themselves but are routinely witnessing it are likely to feel burnout and even quit over the frayed company culture themselves.
    The bottom line: It’s simple. “If your organization is doing things that systemically run off talented people, you will, by definition, be left with less talented people,” says Avery.

    Ever say that some hot blond would be made more attractive with some coffee in her cream?

    Actually yes I have thought that. Gingers especially sometimes have the complexion of dead fish. Even among whites the notion of female beauty has gone from milky white pallor to having a rich tan. There are a lot of Latinas (and Southern Italians and Northern Indians) who are this attractive shade of tan without having to roast in the sun. What you need is just a TOUCH of coffee in your cream, not vice versa like a lot of American black women. Unfortunately, the operation of the one drop rule in America meant that we have a lot more of the latter compared to Latin America.

  126. ‘It’s almost as if every television ad these days features a black woman married to a white man living in a nice house in the suburbs because blacks are the most brand-obsessed and least good deal-interested set of consumers.’

    Meh. My own experience in business led me to the realization that business behavior is dictated less by rational calculations of economic self-interest than one would assume.

    Blacks are in ads because those making the ads want to feel virtuous. If we worshipped rabbits, every commercial would feature rabbits.

There’s a sense that criminality was afoot, and real drama of whether Trump and his lawyers will be able to find it in time to impact the outcome.

    On several occasions before the wedding I took this male friend aside and said, ‘WTF are you doing? She’s going to divorce rape you and take her half-white kids which is the goal…to get white dna for her kids and U.S. citizenship!’”

    He had two answers…

    1) But Thoughts, the sex! (I didn’t ask, but to this day I’m assuming something something if you get my drift)

    and

    2) I’d rather marry her then some loser redneck white trash.

    I always thought number 2 was the oddest, since by marrying the black woman…and getting divorce raped…and based upon what his house looks like on Google Earth and the old fashion beat up car parked in the driveway…Isn’t he the white trash?

    His relationship occurred during the Obama years and I think he was thinking if he married a black woman, he’d get brownie points in his government job…But gentile idiots will always be gentile idiots and that was never going to happen.

    I must be getting old, I don’t recognize anyone below George Lucas in those pictures. But as far as the top four, those are severely damaged humans, so it’s not surprising that they would marry poorly despite having the money and fame to do otherwise.
    David Bowie – Great musician, but complete nutter, and leaned gay as well. No way a guy like that can just marry a nice English lass and settle into normal domestic life.
    Bill de Blasio – That guy is so filled with self-loathing that he changed his name. It’s not surprising that he would a marry lesbian that is so black and so short that his kids would have no trace of him.
    Robert De Niro – Dad was a closeted homosexual. Given that shot of De Niro’s wife, he might be too.
    George Lucas – His first wife left him for the Hispanic handyman that worked around Skywalker ranch. That takes a toll that is probably hard to get over. I also just learned that Lucas has four daughters, with the first three being adopted and the last by surrogacy. That’s not too surprising for the three he had with his pictured wife, as they were both pretty old by then. But he met his first wife when they were both still students, and she apparently got knocked up by the handyman shortly after leaving Lucas, which kind of makes you wonder why they adopted.
    tl/dr: These pairings are just the outward manifestation of deep internal trauma, and some or all of them may be beards as well.

    That’s not true. Women of all races (including black ladies regardless of credit score) prefer white men.

    From the link below:

    “…So the good news for white men and Asian women is they are the most sought-after demographics on dating sites…Quartz’s study showed that most women are highly interested in dating white men. Additionally, Asian, Latino, and white women all respond more frequently to white men…”

    Asian women, yep. My girl is a Chinese-presenting HAPA who is 20 years younger than me. Yellow fever, baby.

    “…Maybe these guys are just really smooth talkers…”

    Well I am that, but that sounds like a rationalization for non-white undesirability.

    “…Or, maybe patriarchal values have influenced women’s dating preferences. It’s hard to tell from the raw data exactly what’s going on, but, at least for now, white men seem to have an advantage over black, Latino, and Asian men…”

    Patriarchal values. What a crock. Again, a rationalization by non-whites for not being white. This is hypergamy, plain and simple. Women (just like men) want to marry up. For women, that means “adding some cream to their coffee”. If that’s part of the patriarchy, then long live the patriarchy. Speaking as a rich white man, of course.

  181. There’s only two sorts of TV commercials, of the recent past, that I can vividly recall:

    The first sort is a guy who touts his made-in-the-USA pillow.

    The other sort is an insurance genre. All accuse their competitors of charging (viewers) too much.

    But there’s probably 500 other channels that I pay for, on skip, where left wing indoctrination ads (and programming!) are commonplace.

    The race of the actors who appear in TV commercials, and the social message viewers might perceive therefrom, are of no consequence. What sucks are political ads that push for higher school taxes.

    The demographics of the US differs greatly by age.

    The under 5o population is 55% white.

    Advertisers typically target those under the age of 50
    In a few years whites under the age of 50 will be outnumbered by non-whites, so we should expect to see fewer whites in advertising.

I’m actually entertained in a way by thinking about and learning about equipment and techniques for my sport. There’s always more to learn and to benefit from, and there are a lot of smart and/or experienced guys on the same page, involved in improving, refurbishing, rethinking, and enjoying their gear and training. Most of them happen to be White or Asian, and the great majority are male. Maybe this microcosm represents the larger tendency for Whites and Asian men to add to and to share civilizational knowledge and capability rather than just consume it.

    I used to work in advertising and I can tell you you’re correct. As soon as someone brings up diversity, everyone is frozen with fear.

    The commercials for one of our clients generally featured three couples socializing. One of the couples would always be black. One time, as our female creative director was reviewing casting tapes, she said she liked two of the black couples best.

    I said, “Don’t you think that would make the commercial a little too black?”

    She said, triumphantly, ” And you have a problem with that?!”

    I said, “I think the client might. It’ll look like the product is intended for black consumers.”

    Anyway, I was out within the year, but that was 20 years ago. Today I’d have been out within the hour.

    Actually yes I have thought that. Gingers especially sometimes have the complexion of dead fish.

Not great skin, not good proportions, not good features. (And looks particularly bad overweight, which we see now among this phenotype–esp. in American South.) The Nordics seem to carry off “pale” quite a bit better.

    That said, the classic American “girl next door”–i.e. mostly an Anglo-Irish-Germanic blend, or more broadly a Western Euro blend–is really hard to beat. Obviously there are lots of great looking individual girls across a huge range of other ethnicities–Spanish, French, Eastern European, Jewish, Russian, Arab, Indian, Latina, etc. etc. But on average the western european blend is hard to beat.

    It’s hard to assess how serious the actual damage wrought on the economy by COVID has been with all the stimulus, the adaptations, and how much less we all go out now, but it seems substantial… I wonder if part of the energy for BLM has been because blacks are the only ones spending money to keep significant parts of corporate America afloat this year, such that their own peculiar ideas have to be sucked up to even more than usual.

    Biden should PARDON Trump to avert ‘civil unrest’ in the US, Democrat lawyer says

    “Why Biden should pardon Trump — and we Democrats should want him to,” argued Michael Conway, former counsel for the House Judiciary Committee, in an aptly named “hot take” think-piece published by NBC on Tuesday that immediately drew backlash.

    “Trump would, of course, be one of the least deserving recipients of a federal pardon in history,” he writes, accusing the president of “currently endangering our democratic processes by relentlessly undermining the legitimacy of Biden’s election and thwarting a peaceful transition.”

    So, the pavlovian “peaceful transition” is being repurposed. So far it has been used to describe the intermin period between an outgoing color-revolutioned “regime” and an incoming “fresh blood” democracy more amenable to western kleptocratic machinations.

    Neocon factory poultry meat Christiane Amanpour said on CNN that Trump had basically Kristallnachted the US (and probably was about to kickstart another Holocaust) and she did a non-apology about this afterwards.

    Agreed, but I think Hollywood and advertising are facing extinction level events for much of them.

    Consider network tv, the home of ads. Or cable. Cord cutting is rampant, particularly with Covid layoffs and Biden’s “Dark Winter” lockdown proposed for 18 months minimum. [While we send vaccines to Africa.] OK, Deplorables punished. But that means most people stuck at home will cancel their cable in favor of a few streaming services few of which have ads. And if most people who were were working and now are not (permanently) then Diversity looks like the entitled not-fired HR woman who fired them. And cost them their car and house.

    And while Oligarchy means no competition and economic rents, not even the Oligarchs can force consumers without money anyway to buy. These people are profoundly stupid on a retarded, riding the short bus level.

    Meanwhile the big budget movies are over. The Star Wars movies flopped big time, Marvel’s universe is over, and they relied upon in person movie viewing which like movie theaters are dead as a Norwegian Gray parrot pining for the fjords.

    The future such as it is amounts to streaming. There metrics are detailed at least to the household level. One of the streaming services had an ultra-woke “Watchmen” series and even wokeness could not save it from being canceled. Your average streaming service series will cost somewhere between 2-3 million an episode. At a limited run of say, 13 episodes per season thats a cost of around 26-39 million per year that each show has to cover; with no more big money piling in from past revenue streams: theatrical exhibition, re-issues on new media (DVD, then Blu-Ray), cable and network TV revenue.

    Shows like Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, the Shield, etc. relied on advertisers to reach a very limited but desirable demographic. Can even sponsors with some Biden bailout bucks now spend propaganda aimed at the same 9 lesbian black teens interested in woke space opera like Star Trek?

    Look at Disney. They spent over a billion on the Star Wars Land in Disneyland, and the park will never re-open. The franchise itself is on life support kept alive by the Mandalorian run by the actor/director/writer John Favreau (no relation to the Obama speechwriter). The guy who basically created the Marvel universe by insisting on Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man.

    Its a question of resources. How long can companies like Disney, Time Warner (owner ATT is looking to sell CNN) and CBS-Viacom compete against deep pocket giants like Amazon and Apple offering the same woke crap to the same tiny pool of woke lesbians of color without going bankrupt.

    Its a different model when revenue is subscription based and not advertiser based and there is almost no cross-subsidies from other areas. I assume Paramount will be the first studio to go under but would not be shocked if even Disney went under. They have a ton of debt and are not making money in any foreseeable future.

    So many and so good that we’re well in “don’t date robots” societal danger territory even w/o any sex.

    I don’t game much now, but it’s not because there aren’t good games. It’s because I don’t want to end up destitute and homeless.

    This may not count, because the wife/girlfriend was Indian instead of black. However, there’s a series of commercials about something or other where the guy is obsessed with his job as a sign-spinner. To the extent that he falls asleep with his sign in his arms.

    “Dumb” is a perfectly acceptable description of such behavior. I can see interpreting it as a good Worl Ethic and pride in his work. But 99% of people watching will think “that guy is dumb.”

    They don’t give enough of a shit about average black people to be anywhere near understanding what motivates them, so they present what they think SHOULD motivate them.

    Affirmative action is pretty much a big grift, whereby priviledged mulattos cash in on the underperformance of ghetto blacks to get government contracts, ivy league admissions, corporate diversity jobs, etc, etc.

    Liberal whites get to feel virtuous, “talented tenth” mulattos cash in, and the ghetto blacks stay exactly where they started. It works for everybody.

    I characterise computer games in three ways – by competitiveness (PvP/PvE), immersion and story. StarCraft 2 / Dota 2 are competitive PvP. Mario / Dark Souls are competitive PvE. Your generic run-of-the-mill $60 game is likely to be story-driven (Assassin’s Creed, God of War, Witcher 3, the Call of Duty campaign). And then there is a focus on immersion – milsims such as Post Scriptum, atmospheric horror games such as Soma, traditional RPGs such as Neverwinter Nights, they all try to sell a fantasy of being there first and foremost. These three branches have almost nothing in common, although virtually any game incorporates all three.

    What I will say is that these huge corporations are happy to put short-term and maybe even long-term profit second to social engineering. Rothbard was wrong to say that corporations’ only purpose is to make profit. Or maybe that was true during his lifetime. It’s unquestionably false today.

    They’re still putting profit ahead of everything. There’s one factor you haven’t added to your account because it is still in the process of being born. The Great Reset will inaugurate a program in which all blacks receive $25,000 through transfer payments from the Federal government. It will be rationalized as Reparations for slavery or red-lining, whatever. The “money” will simply be electronically credited to a debit account. Blacks will have tremendous purchasing power and the overbearing, obnoxious social-engineering commercials are designed to direct that money into the proper channels.

    Let that statistic run through your mind the next time you’re seeing TV commercials- WHITES STILL OUTNUMBER BLACKS BY MORE THAN 3 TO 1. And whites have much more (potential) purchasing power than blacks, not just based on raw numbers in the population but also their higher average incomes.

    Advertising is all about selling stuff to people, but they’re not just selling the product that the ad is ostensibly for, they’re selling the social agenda that the product is wrapped up in.

    Advertising used to be about selling the product, but that hasn’t been true since the 80’s. What they sell now is the emotion; the ad attempts to make you feel an emotion and link that emotion with the product. While the advertiser may or may not have an agenda, what they’re selling is the emotion “I’m a good person, because I believe white men find black women sexy, it’s common for an average black man to drive a new BMW SUV to go camping, and black girls are innately capable of being astronauts.” It’s essentially televangelist Prosperity Gospel but for a different religion.

    It’s almost as if every television ad these days features a black woman married to a white man living in a nice house in the suburbs because blacks are the most brand-obsessed and least good deal-interested set of consumers.

    I got married a few years ago, but before then, out of necessity, I was fairly plugged in to how women view the social and dating scene. It hasn’t been remarked about much in the general misery of 2020, but I have the feeling that the social scene has been pretty dreadful. A bad economy plus everything shut down means a lot of people who aren’t settled down but would like to be basically lost a year off their biological clocks. And, maybe this is stereotypical, but I have a sense that young men may deal with being shut in at home better than young women do. We’re no longer forced to have to dress up, shave, get haircuts, and go out, and a lot of male-focused entertainment (video games, porn, sports, etc.) can be enjoyed from the comfort of the couch. 2020 was OnlyFans’ breakout year. Conversely, the sorts of things that young, professional-class young women put their resources, time and attention into often aren’t that much fun if they either can’t be enjoyed out on the town or shared with company. I’ve heard from women who are putting an inordinate amount of hope and energy into their “Zoom dates.”

    Anyway, from black women’s perspective, WMBF seems like the height of aspiration over reality. Maybe Kamala Harris and her late marriage to a rich, white, Jewish LA lawyer husband offers some hope. (I have one old school friend who went into politics and whose career has outlasted her eggs. I’m pretty sure she’s looking at Harris as a potential personal example to follow: find a nice, older, rich guy who already has kids and who wouldn’t mind a low-maintenance second wife with her own career.) Advertising tends to be a strong reflection of either the aspirations or the insecurities of whoever is being advertising to.

    “Now it looks like the program is about civil rights.” Someone said.

    So the artist made a logo of crisscrossing shaking hands of different colors.

    “If you squint it looks like a swastika.” I said.

    So we ended up with a wreath of shaking hands of many different colors, genders and ages. It looked horrible.

    The Beatles were equally short and scrawny. It wasn’t just the war rationing. Their parents were teens during the malnutrition of the 1930s depression. Then the rationing continued up till the mid 1950s. So for English kids born in the early 1940s it was rationing till they were 12-15 years old and born of parents malnourished during the 1930s depression.

    English kids born about 1958-1962 were the first cohort to be what we consider normal size and normal age of puberty.

    I remember years ago looking through CDC birth data and found that Clayton County, Georgia was the oil drillier capital of the US: the county where newborns with white fathers were most likely to have black mothers. It also has the distinction of being one of a handful of counties where white median income is less than that of blacks.

    You also forgot one important aspect, that (((they))) own most of the large advertising firms that many companies outsource their marketing to

    The executives of NYC marketing companies are disproportionately Jewish but the workers are heavily bitter White women that are pissed off that their cousin back in the midwest is married and happy. These are the same liberal women that thought “Sex in the city” was based in reality.

    Sex in the City was a gay man’s fantasy extravaganza, with limitless supplies of compliant hunks, sexually-supercharged priests, and suave yet macho traders who secretly harbor a tender side.

    Everybody gets laid, nobody gets HIV or syphilis or genital warts. A broken heart is the worst possible outcome, and soon enough there’ll be another conquest, or conqueror, to take one’s mind off the pain.

    And nobody ever really turns 40.

    Many, if not most of the European Royals, male and female, are marrying/cohabitating with blacks now. This is a wink-wink to their historical heritage.

    “…handful of counties where white median income is less than that of blacks.”

    Cmpx, seems plausible given that a high number of the White persons left in Clayton County are likely retired.

    Clayton County, Georgia median age 2019:

    White residents: 52.9 years old
    Asian residents: 44.6 years old
    Black residents: 32.0 years old
    American Indian residents: 28.0 years old
    Hispanic or Latino residents: 23.5 years old
    Other race residents: 22.5 years old

    White persons, non Hispanic, are roughly 14% of the population there. A similar demographic breakdown seems about right for where the US, or probably more correctly whatever the North American continent becomes, is headed.

    Duncsbaby, the African man appears to Princess Martha Louise’s boy toy, who she took on just after, or perhaps prior to, her husbands (pictured) death in 2019.

    7F8FBF22-E751-40AE-A5B2-A8AB4F247351

    Ari Mikael Behn had been married to Princess Märtha Louise, the elder child of King Harald V, prior to committing suicide in 2019.

    Known as Mikael Bjørshol until 1996, Behn achieved early literary success with his 1999 short story collection Trist som faen (“Sad as hell“), which sold about 100,000 copies.

    …took part in other creative and artistic endeavours such as the design of a china set named “Peacock“.

    …Behn acknowledged that many people regarded him as a “fool“.

    Even at home live sports feature ads. That’s why the networks pay so much for live sports. After all, they literally stop the game for the sole purpose of showing advertising. They are colloquially known as “TV timeouts”.

  337. White husband-black wife update — just saw a 3M ad with a pleasant 30ish black woman putting her white daughter on the school bus. That not only suggests there must be a white husband or boyfriend somewhere, but it sidesteps the need to even show him.

    A related 3M ad, hosted by a friendly black alleged 3M scientist, shows a nice young black couple jogging — a no-doubt unintended source of hilarity

    Who watches TV? Every 30 minute program is 14 minutes of program, 16 minutes of ADs and up coming attractions. Every 1 hour program is 28 minutes of program 32 minutes of Ads. I’ve tried to watch Tucker Carlson a few times. Every time I turn the TV to his show it’s either an AD or some black critter yacking away.

    Never agreed with you more in my life. It’s very hard for me to take TV being on when I have to be around someone watching it. I completely cut off paying for or watching any TV at all way back in 2006 during the Duke Lacrosse scandal when they just went on and on and on about that being the most important and shameful issue facing the country (and then dropped it of course the second it turned out to basically be a hoax). I was already so sick of the ads and commercials by then that I was really only would have C-Span on in the background and sometimes Fox News or MSNBC (before they became complete Democrat assholes). But with the Duke thing I could not stand one day longer to listen to any of it anymore.

    I’ve never regretted it thanks to torrenting and youtube, and I can’t help but look down on the type of mind that can sit through all those goddamned unending insipid asinine commercials. I look back now and remember sitting on the couch as a kis and early teen just watching hours and hours of dumb shows and look down on myself too.

    The way they hug their women is really off.

    He is doing the same hug and smile that a politician would for some random person they are supposed to recognize.

    If he is in fact gay and she is still a dyke then that must have been some awkward sex. They have 2 kids so it happened at least twice.

    Anyways New Yorkers are freaking idiots for electing him. Another case of liberal double standards.

    Imagine if a Republican said he was going to marry a lesbian activist. The press would never give him a break.

    33% of Black professionals don’t feel respected or valued at work
    Surprised it’s that low. When you consider that a fair proportion of “Black Professionals” will feel slighted if they’re treated like genuine royalty 365 days of the year.

    And as far as turnover is concerned, the relatively few competent black workers are always at risk of being poached by the competition, forever dangling better and better salaries and bennies in front of them.

    This is the result of liberal White indocrinators/educators telling the talented tenth from a very early age that they should all be presidents and astronauts. In the mind of the liberal they are helping right the ship.

    So they come out thinking that they should be running the companies or it’s racism.

    So when companies poach them to pad their diversity index is doesn’t engender humility.

    I have a sense that young men may deal with being shut in at home better than young women do. We’re no longer forced to have to dress up, shave, get haircuts, and go out, and a lot of male-focused entertainment (video games, porn, sports, etc.) can be enjoyed from the comfort of the couch.

    I was becoming a total misanthrope before all this happened. The lockdown just accelerated that transformation. I tell you though, I’ve found that I enjoy being alone and not having to deal with other people’s bullshit. It’s also awesome how much stuff one can watch on different streaming services for free or for very little. During the pandemic, I’ve discovered Tubi and been watching a lot of action movies from when I was younger like Bloodsport, American Ninja I, II, IV, Angel Town, F/X 2, and others. Just wanting to see men kicking ass from a time when stuff like that wasn’t considered an issue or offensive.

    The truth is the opposite of what you say. Most white men are NOT AT ALL attracted to black women. Actually this is pretty much true for other races as well. The comparatively few “black ” women who are attractive tend to be fairly to very mixed.

    Murray Rothbard reasoned deductively that a corporation’s survival (and satisfaction of shareholders) depended entirely on profit. But, Rothbard consistently visualized the world in the ideal condition of no interference from the state, where the only pressure comes primarily from customers, and then vendors and employees. Not the state. And the state is the elephant in the room.
