    Microsoft invites WHITE PEOPLE to play XBOX One

    While none of the content of the commercial was racist... well, pay close attention....

    It's funny to me because almost all of my friends who are black ONLY play XBOX 360 and don't even Have PS3's or don't use them.

    only black guy i saw in the clip is the guy behind the football fan that gets chosen. It's a literal no not you, just the white guy in front of you. Hahaha. atleast the woman sounds... foreign.

    There were 5 people features in the commercial and all were caucasian but I didn't read anything into it. There are many demographics that weren't featured.

    someone said the same thing about the "perfect day" ps4 commercial. the only conclusion i can come to is that some people are just stupid.

    So what's the point of this? The only time race is an issue is when attention is brought to it. I don't even see why it had to be mentioned at all. It has nothing to do with this commercial.
    "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    Being a black guy, I watched this and thought it wasn't racist.

    It's not necessarily a big deal. But you know...you wanted to start a thread.

    Because the United States, Canada, and Europe being predominately white has nothing to do with the people selected in the advertisement. Nope, not at all. I'm sure if the commercial were geared towards east Asia it would still have been all white people, because obviously there's some racial agenda here.

    I'm sorry. What was the point of this thread?

    It's particularly concerning how you're ignorant to the traits of the nation you live in. Regardless, 3/4 of Canada's population is indeed white.

    You're more than free to ignore the facts of reality, but just know it still means you're wrong. 72% of Americans and 76% of Canadians are white.

    And 0.0000001% of people in the world prefer to nitpick at things till they're blue in the face and ruins everything around the world through being overly pedantic.

    Yeah, when you get out and drive far and wide you start to notice it.
    I was once in Hagerstown MD and didn't see a Non White person for 7 hours, finally, the girl serving coffee at Starbucks in the bookstore was black.

    Then there's a good portion of Ohio.

    I grew up in Baltimore City (white guy) so I notice these things fast, not used to a $#@!genous selection of people around.

    Who cares? I'm paying attention to the product being advertised not checking to see that every racial demographic is being properly represented. lol
