Coca Cola is making headway news with their upcoming Super Bowl commercial that will air this Sunday reports the Christian Post on Jan. 31. The commercial shows an Arab man leading a camel through the desert when Las Vegas show girls, rebels dressed in "Mad Max" fashion, and cowboys zoom past in a Coke bottle.
The Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee claims that the commercial is racist, however, after further explanation from Coca Cola Corporation, the commercial doesn't seem that bad, although they don't plan on pulling it which the Arab-American community feels will raise the heckles of many.
Coca Cola did release a statement through, what they are calling, productive talks with the Arab-American community that they didn't intend for the commercial to be derogatory. The Anti-Discrimination group says that they are pleased with the public apology and they feel that the issue has been resolved.
The commercial is designed that fans can go online and choose who will win the race, however, selecting the Arab leading a camel isn't an option. Furthermore, making many people feel as if the commercial is racist.
