Pepsi Ad Bombs, Here's Why

I've seen so many comments from people not understanding why the newest Pepsi ad campaign is absolute garbage.

Let me help explain, from a communications major point of view. 

Their choice of a rich, white woman to play the peacemaker between the resistance and police is laughable considering the current struggle is not that of a rich, white woman. 

The Kardashian/Jenner's have been fairly silent concerning most political affairs, which is another reason why the selection of Kendall rubbed people the wrong way. If they were going to pick a celebrity to play the part of peacemaker, they could have at least picked a celebrity involved in some sort of activism, like Amber Rose, Kerry Washington, or BeyoncĂ©. 

The lack of representation within the commercial is also laughable. For the limited amount of time minorities were shown on screen, their stereotypical depiction did not do Pepsi any favors in redeeming this ad.

If a brand is going to make a political statement of unity and togeth…

Martin Luther King Jr. Was Assassinated 49 Years Ago Today

Martin Luther King Jr. was Assassinated 49 years ago today. King was an activist, famous for his contributions to civil rights advancements and for his forever iconic "I Have a Dream" speech. 

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.
I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.
I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not…

Ignorance Runs Rampant: Two Adults Can't Eat Together Without Having Sex, Apparently

So, Twitter has blown up in response to this tweet. Matt Walsh is a shock value fiend on Twitter. I've seen some of his posts floating around here and there. Well, let me correct that, I've seen responses to his idiotic posts floating around here and there. 
In this tweet, he is insinuating that it is never appropriate for married persons of the opposite sex to eat together. This just left me scratching my head. It also left me a little (a lot) annoyed. It also makes me seriously question the depth of his relationships and how he treats the women that sadly succumb to being anywhere near this idiot in his daily life. 
Two grown adults should be able to eat together. A wife should be able to go out to lunch with a male coworker, and a husband should be able to go have dinner with an old classmate to catch up. 
Newsflash, a meal together does not automatically mean the two involved to flail themselves at each other to engage in a night of wild, passionate relations.
