That's stereotypical, rather than racist.

Now if they'd written the native as a habitual drunk, or had him begging the bear for beer, then it would be racist.

Words mean things.

Good call. Sure, there are stereotypes on display here -- it's a caricature -- but it's not tremendously disrespectful. Not tremendously respectful either.

To me, it's standard-issue othering. A stereotype invented and perpetuated by a racist society.

I don't really care what anyone calls it, though, as long as we can all acknowledge there's like 500 years of conquest and exploitation behind shit like this, and it's not harmless or acceptable.

Bort - 2012-09-22
Agreed. Even if they mean no harm in what they intend as an amusing little commercial, they're still leveraging stereotypes that have not historically been all in good fun.

It's not easy to create a positive caricature -- go ahead, try to draw someone immediately recognizable as an honored elder of the Iroquois Confederacy -- so maybe the smartest thing is just not to go there at all.

So this isn't racist because he's not actually depicted in the act of being greedy? The more you know!

The distinction in my mind is: racism is believing groups are better/worse because of character traits or capabilities typical of those groups, while stereotypes are about typical activities or behaviors of people in those groups. Clearly there is room for overlap between the two, but I'm not seeing the former in this commercial.

"Stop talking about racism, you guuuuuuys :C"

Pft.

The problem with this isn't that it's racist, but that they're selling beer to children.

I like it. Needs jingle tag.
Chocolate Jesus - 2012-09-22
I mean "jingles".

This is very tame for a 50s cartoon depiction of a native american.

Disney's Peter Pan is far, far more racist than this.
