Black man/culture = trash can???? What the fuck!

If advertising is about symbolism and metaphors to convey quick (often :30 second) ideas and messages these guys should really consider the implications and imagery used here. This is how racism and prejudice is spread and made common place.

I know there will be nay sayers, but imagine if that trash can looked like your mom.

Risking being labeled as naive, I didn't really associate the trash can with a black man.
I'm not saying racism doesn't exist but your assumption is based on your own paranoia and prejudices. Other races also have plastic surgery, go to ball games, live a lavish lifestyle, rent limos, and wear ostentatious jewelry, etc.

Lighten up. That shit was straight up funny.
