Demo Congresswoman Upset by Super Bowl Pepsi Commercial

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee thinks it is demeaning to black women for a black man to look at a white woman or something.
Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) took to the House floor Tuesday night to criticize what she called a "demeaning" Pepsi ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

In the ad for Pepsi Max, a black woman sitting on a park bench gets angry with her husband after an attractive, white female jogger sits down next to the couple and smiles and waves at the man.

After the man smiles back, his girlfriend or wife gets angry and whips her Pepsi Max can at him. The man ducks, and the can hits the attractive jogger in the head. The ad is titled "Love hurts."

As one of my twitter friends noted, if this commercial was cast in reverse, they wouldn't have gotten away with it at all!
