Is the Arizona beverage company boldly marketing racism and bragging about it on urban message boards? Judge for yourselves:
My name is LaMar McGowan and today was the first day of my life were I Felt like less of a Black Man! When did Slavery become marketable? I'm Calling for a nation wide Boycott on a drink company named "Arizona" which has a variety of flavors. I myself have bought a number of their drinks, but on 11/30 I bought my last one.
There is someone in the marketing dept. who told someone on the board that, "We can degrade black people and make money at the same time," - and the board member agreed!
Every Black person from the south knows how good it felt on those hot southern days to have a tall glass of sweet tea. "Arizona" has a flavor known as Southern Style Sweet Tea." But if you look closely on the front of the can, there is a picture of a Plantation!
Yes, I said a Plantation, with a white couple on the porch and a Black woman dressed like Aunt Jemima walking away from the house. When did slavery become marketable?
My Grandfather was 100 years old before he passed in 2004 and that picture reminds me of his very few but painful story's not a hot southern day with a cool refreshing glass of sweet tea. So stop buying any drinks from this company!
