    I think the problem doesn't lie with Bernardo intended the connotations or being aware of them, I think the problem lies with the ones who feel offended and are unable to read the context in which it was written. Making this the big issue it has become, it will not help the fight vs racism and for me, that is the truly sad part of this all.

    This woman battered him really, making out that he is thick and using her own colour to get away with the character assassination.

    Have you seen the advert for the sweets? No idea when its from but one watch of that and its understandable why black people would take offense to the product as a whole. To be fair, everyone should be pretty disgusted in an advert like that.

    Just how old is that advert, it looks like it was from the 80's, it will maybe rival um bongo and Kia Ora as adverts

    ps oh and BS didn't compare him to anything in that video but a chocolate bar wrapper graphic that is still on sale and available for anybody to buy.

    Maybe people can dislike a product and its history and therefore dislike subsequent products. Kinda makes sense in my head at least.

    Because there is no history of non-white people using such caricatures of white people in order to humiliate and insult them, as part of a bigger systemic racism issue.

    Seriously, if those of you who are "FREE SPEACH!" moaners bothered to listen just once and look into a topic past its surface level, you might be curious to find that there are deeper reasons and meaning to certain things.
