Why are black people still endorsing McDonalds? Recently, the mega fast-food giant released a new Big Mac commercial that disturbed me. I mean, they got niggas in a drum line, dribbling basketballs, rapping, stepping, break dancing and all kinds of shit. Fast Food is NOT one of the elements of hip hop. Furthermore, I am pretty sure, any serious athlete is not consuming “all-beef” patties and special sauce before or after a game, unless if nausea and vomiting is some unknown performance enhancer.
When viewing any form of TV programming, the bombardment of commercials is a guarantee. What is obvious to me, is the amount of products that have ‘black folk’ as the target market. Witnessing such fuckery led me to think. What if colored people refused to lend their talents and energy to that kind of nonsense? No marketing, no actors, no extras, no auditions; Just refuse to participate in any advertisement for food that most of us don’t really eat. No more backflips and headspins to attract the attention of the urban class they want to kill with that shit they call “food”.
