PURE Foolery: SuperBowl Pepsi Commercial

I was truly confused and offended by this commercial!  Here I  am sitting around my boyfriend and his entire white family on Super Bowl Sunday and by-golly out of nowhere I'm put on the defensive by watching this atrocious commercial.  I held my tongue because my rejection would only conjure-up thoughts of black women being "angry" all the time.  It it demeaning and it really hurts my heart that we are continually depicted in such a negative light.  Yet again, the white woman is the demure ideal woman.  The media is pissing me off.  One day things will be different -- but obviously not in this lifetime.
