Black Ads That Drive Us Nuts

After ignoring black consumers for decades, companies have realized that urban marketing is smart business. But while we love seeing black folks in media, it defeats the purpose if they die during the opening credits, are complete buffoons or otherwise reinforce negative African American stereotypes.


As a group, blacks possess about $1 trillion in buying power, and we’re inclined to spend our hard-earned money with companies that treat our community with respect. A lot of companies get it; for too many others, though, it still hasn’t seeped in. Take Toyota’s infamous “gold tooth” ad as proof that there are still way too many television commercials featuring African Africans that reflect the worst about black culture. Here are a few that really rub us the wrong way.

Annie, the Chicken Mammy

We could chuckle at Paula Jai Parker and Dave Chappelle’s ‘Chicken Ho’ in the birdbrained ‘Woo’ because of the unlikelihood that any white person on the planet would ever see that film. But the Popeye’s Chicken ad campaign featuring a new-growth-scratching sassy black woman who introduces herself as Annie “the Chicken Queen” is but a biscuit and strawberry soda away from being a full-on minstrel show.

I think Annie, the Chicken Mammy is a total liar. I'll bet she's never set foot in a Popeye's kitchen before!

You don't have anything else better than to critize a chicken commercial, what other black causes have you joined or supported? She has a job, and you need a life.

Only uptight oreo-type "African Americans" would be bothered by that inoffensive yet very effective commercial.

The only problem with the article (besides it being filled with questionable cookies) is that those ads aren't for black people.

You think marketing is worried about a lousy $1 trillion? Out of $9.78 trillion?

They were made for the white folk that elected a black president and now need to be told how he and his community live.

What's an "Oreo-type" black person??? And who cares if a black person is doing the Popeyes commercial, she's getting paid! For those who don't know Al Copeland's is the founder and owner of Popeyes franchise, he's white by the way!

Corporate America has been producing stupid, annoying ads for decades. People have done a lot worse in front of millions of viewers than Annie. Many will degrade themselves for money. It's the norm.

I'd say fuck you, but then you'd go tell your friends that someone hit on your pimply ass. So instead I'll say drop dead.

To those who are complaining about the "Popeye Commercial", I thought it was great! The actress did an excellent job in that she was vivacious, exuberant, and used very natural expressions. I didn't see her as a "Sambo" type! She was very intelligent and I say again, very good!

I love that commercial, that's the reason I researched it to see who the actress was. Maybe those criticizing liked it too!

Oh, shit.

Somebody keeps doing the same thing over and over again.

Too cute for your own good.

Of course you realize Little Black Sambo was an Asian Indian. The author spent many years in India. There are no tigers in Africa.
