Jamaicans like the ad:
Everyone calling the Jamaican Super Bowl ad racist obviously no nothing about our culture. We love & endorse it.

But what do Jamaicans know? Some white Americans insist they know better:

It just me or was VW’s ad incredibly racist? “white people doing jamaican accents? Classic!” – some coked up VW exec.

Am I the only one that thought the Jamaican accent VW ad just now was vaguely racist?
