Just finished watching this incredibly racist political ad and I’m so fucking angry that I’m speechless. Here’s what I’m speechless about:

Pete Hoekstra Ad Draws More Criticism, Called ‘Really, Really Dumb’

LANSING, Mich. — A coalition of black ministers in Detroit called Monday for U.S. Senate candidate Pete Hoekstra to apologize for his Super Bowl ad featuring a young Asian woman speaking broken English to describe the impact of the Democratic incumbent’s economic policies.

The request came a day after an Asian-American group called the ad “very disturbing.”

Really, it’s time for Asian-American groups to stand up and say MORE than that it is “very disturbing.”

Very disturbing … No shit?!?!?  Call it what it is … FRIGGING ASSHOLE RACISM!!!

  1. It’s like, oh we don’t want to be too obviously racist so we will get an American Asian and make her leave out some words so they know she Chinese, she play joke, she go pee pee in your Coke. I mean really! My speakers are weak on this laptop so at first I didn’t catch the “broken” English because she sounded totally American. What a horrible douchey ad.
