I've watched this on the television about ten times tonight. It's bloody brilliant. I've been saying all along that we need to be using the Loving decision in our ads. Read my post yesterday for a brief overview of that decision.

For crying in a bucket. Jase is me, James.

I just saw my first NO ad tonight -- 10:30 pm. Are we in the Valley a "lost cause". Hope not!

OT:Jaws(?)For crying in a bucket?!?

Great ad. Hopefully, it reminds the other minorities that make up the majority in California - blacks, Asians, Latinos, even Armenians - that it hasn't been all that long ago that the "white" majority treated them like crap.

The unfortunate truth, dr. Primrose is that once an oppressed group moves up, even slightly, they become oppressors.

This was so apparent with the Eastern European immigrants who worked in the steal industry. As soon as they rose slightly, and a new batch of immigrants arrived over whom they took prescient, the formerly oppressed group became oppressors.

This is true also of the black community. They now have the civil rights they were denied, so now the majority of them wish to deprive the new class of people the same civil rights.

This should be all that need be said.

A hard truth, James. But true nonetheless. :(

That's Samuel L. Jackson doing the narration, FYI.
