Play this game while watching your next television program. Begin by viewing T.V. commercials from a wholly different perspective than from what you’ve been accustomed to.
Pay close attention to the assigned characters in T.V. commercials who supposedly represent a fair cross-section of the population in your average western country. Notice how almost every T.V. commercial must have their token Black character incongruously inserted into play-acting roles that hardly imitate real life images. (One can extrapolate this subject line to include T.V. shows, Hollywood movies and print advertisement, etc.) It should be noted that Blacks represent about 12.5% of the total U.S. population, and only a mere 2% of Canada’s population, and one-half of those latter Black residents are foreign-born.
