This comes from people who ignore every example of inequality for women and minorities, but OMG! Here's some white men looking like idiots in TV commercials. This is the intellectual integrity the alt-right has built itself on.

I've already said this, and I have a feeling that I'll be saying it a lot in the future. NOTHING SAYS "WHITE PRIVILEGE" LIKE THE SMALL SCALE INSULTS SOME PEOPLE CONSIDER TO BE "OPPRESSION" OR EVEN "GENOCIDE".
When this sort of thing happens, it's not random. The demographics of advertising models are chosen very carefully. But because of very real historical context, it's worse to make the black guy the idiot. It's worse to have all white people or all black people in your ad. There's really no racially neutral choice here.
If I had a button that I could push, and everyone who uses the term "red-pilled" would be punched in the face, what would I do with that? Would I have moral reservations? Or carpal tunnel?
So you're making the argument that microaggressions are bullshit?
Only if those microaggressions aren't accompanied by macroagressions.
Or how about don't make fun of anybody? What about not fighting marginalization with marginalization, or hate with more hate? How about this doesn't help anybody, it only ensures we'll stay pissed off at each other until a full-scale Civil War II inevitably breaks out?
Yeah, but this isn't part of a conspiracy. This isn't about fighting marginalization. It's just some insecure white supremecist who's unhappy that white men look silly in some commercials. There is no bigger picture, just an idiot who's taking offence over nothing. What a snowflake.
