I am so tired of the marketing companies now making sure all ads have 1 of all the new faces. 1 white, 1 black, 1 Asian, 1 with a shmata on her head, 1 with blue hair, 1 indian... etc. Dont they realize we KNOW they are pandering!

Most commercials and sit-coms that feature white males usually show them as inept fools or effiminate goofs. Not good examples for the youth of this country. Monkey see, monkey do.

Virtue-signaling drives me crazy.

80% of all commercials on television have a black person as the protagonist, every doctor is female, all “ bosses” are black female or both. Every supervisor on the major prime time series, IE Hawaii 5.0, Chicago Fire, NCIS, NCIS LA, NCIS New Orleans, Blacklist, etc etc. pandering indeed.

Look at The Good Doctor, the only two whites are the young autistic “good” doctor, and the old dying guy, ALL the others are of various degrees of dark and slant of eyes..

It's all a part of the push for multiculturalism. The media has been doing this for decades. The more things are portrayed in the media as normal, the more people accept it as normal. Really just a form of thought control.

Why the Hell do I have to see hijabs everywhere!?

which just reminded me of something....once in downtown Ottawa, in the market, where there are nightclubs...I saw a young girl lining up at a club with friends with a hijab and skin tight pants!

honestly better that they only sorta follow that kind of rule imho, hopefully that means they're a step away from fundamentalism

She's proud of her legs but ashamed of her hair.

Like wearing a thong bikini in a Catholic Church. Very sexy but....

The only way to punish these corporations is to not buy their products. They won't listen to your voice but they always hear your wallet.

Political correctness writ large...

And once you realize what you are seeing...you can't NOT see it everywhere

What are commercials for, if not pandering people?

If you KNOW they're pandering, you likely aren't who they're pandering to.

Unless you want what they got.

Pandering is what they do best

I seriously believe this started back in the early nineties. I don't know if it's still common practice, but TV producers were actually getting government grants for advancing the "right" sort of social attitudes. That's when I stopped watching TV. I flat out WILL NOT buy a product that's aimed at obviously carefully chosen demographics. Really tired of the manipulation.

They don't care... and don't forget the obligatory homo couple...

Ever notice how they portray old white guy's?

Yes, usually the greedy Gillian, or cheating husband, or evil supervisor...yes I’ve noticed.

Don't know about elsewhere, but in the UK, most, if not all, actors in toothpaste adds are white women! LOL

It’s not that they don’t know, it’s that somebody in the office gets to say “I helped” without actually doing anything. You even get entire consulting firms based on this nowadays. Easy to say “we’re improving your ad by making it appeal to everyone, and if you question why I did so instead of actually making a better ad for your product or service, I’ll call you a racist and possibly sue.” Check and mate. Problem should work itself out eventually though, because once everyone’s done it for too long, the act will lose its sell. At least I hope so.

I go by the quality & value of their product or sevice

Advertisements, except for the Super Bowl commercials, just shut me off

Those companies should, at least, be restricted to the proper percentages in the population.

1/ most people aren’t you
2/ better that than be attacked for being unrepresentative and have add pulled due to complaints
3/they aren’t you, don’t think deeply about stuff

This reply is exactly why we left fb.

It is funny. Is it really that bothersome though and if so why? Obviously the commercial advertizement is trying to draw in broadly and so they represent as broad a spectrum as possible to profit. I have encountered free market enthusiasts here. How would these "pandering" ads not fit into free market tactics of expand and grow. Is not pander the exact definition of what an advertisement has always sold?
