The Most Racist Advertisements of the Modern Era

Racism, unfortunately, has always been an issue throughout human history, and although it is increasingly being frowned upon as time passes, there still seems to be advertisements that contain it. I came across an article containing a group of ten ads that are considered “the most racist ads of the modern era”. These ads depict racial stereotypes, such as the way Asians speak English as a second language, associating African-Americans with fried chicken, and controversial references of slavery and Hispanic farmers. I don’t understand why these horrible ads were created. According to the article, the creators of the ads didn’t intend them to be racist, but there’s always what-if’s. What if they just said that just to cover up and avoid looking bad? What if there’s more racism out there than we think?
