Why are they making a big deal out of it? It’s a race in the desert and there’s nothing racist about it.
Arab-American groups have sharply criticized a Coca-Cola Super Bowl ad depicting an Arab walking through the desert with a camel, and one group said it would ask the beverage giant to change it before CBS airs the game on Sunday before an expected audience of more than 100 million U.S. viewers.
“Why is it that Arabs are always shown as either oil-rich sheiks, terrorists, or belly dancers?” said Warren David, president of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, or ADC. [Link]
Why be mad, its part of their culture?
Hi Fadi, I was wondering isn’t your name Arabic ?
Does such image resemble you ?
If we like it or hate it, we are considered Arabs…and no one refers to Lebanese as Europeans.
Let these self-centered bunch-of-idiots groups eat
$h!t and die.
Do they want Arabs to be shown as eating noodles with chopsticks instead??
Get a life.
LOL very creative add and not racist.
the camel doesn’t like coke maybe he likes Pepsi.
the Arab guy seem to like Coke like the rest!!
In the US this add was cosiderd racist!!!
Volkswagen Game Day 2013 Commercial | Get In. Get Happy.
There’s always a someone who will find something offensive no matter what. That Volkswagen commercial was great.
That’s a great fuckin add ! What would you like to replace the Arab with ? A guy driving a yellow Lamborghini ? Maybe they tried and it broke down on the sand !
We should start getting over ourselves people.
Just because a person has an Arabic name or is from the middle east, it does not mean they are Arabs, for example, the obvious- there are Jews who speak Hebrew, Lebanese Armenians, Assyrians who have their own language and identity outside the Arabs world, Maronite people are descendants from the Canaanites or Phoenicians, people and maintained their own identity and language, Syriac, as well before the conquest of Arabian Muslims.
“Maronite people are descendants from the Canaanites or Phoenicians”???? hahahahahaha DO YOU HAVE LEGAL DOCUMENTS PROVING THAT? THE SAD PART IS YOU ALL ARE LIVING AN ILLUSION. WAKE UP, YOU ARE ALL ARABS AND THIS IS HOW YOU ARE VIEWED IN THE WORLD. WHEN YOU REALIZE THAT, MAYBE YOU’LL ADMIT THAT THIS AD IS RACIST. GIVE ME A F***ING BREAK!!!!
Guys, u need to see part 2 of the commercial!
well the Arab won!
There’s is scientific and history to to prove that fact.
Actually, there’s living proof that Jews, Assyrians, Maronites and even Persians are not Arabs.
But maybe Arabs don’t believe in western science and history, some don’t even believe in education for women…
fadi inta fadi w betfee2 bet2oul sabah el kheir w btekol tabouleh right ? or kindly introduce us to your culture.
for example- From Wikipedia: Maronites were able to maintain an independent status in Mount Lebanon and its coastline after the Arab Islamic conquest, maintaining their religion and language there until the 13th century. Remnants of their language exist in Cyprus and formerly in some secluded mountain villages, which have since adopted Arabic due to government standardization.
A number of Maronite historians claim that the Maronites were the descendants of the Canaanites or Phoenicians, or also the Marada (ܡܪܕܐ), residents in parts of Greater Syria, who kept their identity under both Byzantine and Arab authorities
THUMBS UP…THUMBS UP…some few people really have issues in belonging.
well i dont know how people would deal with that, you live and adopt a culture; BUT yet you believe that you belong to a different historical phase.
You can be proud of being Lebanese without disregarding your history. We do not all have the same history yet we all can be Lebanese together. Lebanese is a nationality not a race such as Arab or Jew.
Correction , Judiasm is a religion not a race
