Let's be honest about the mixed race couples. Mixed white/black male and Asian female couples have been portrayed on TV for a long time. It's all the other combos that are new. I saw an Asian male and white female couple on a commercial the other day and thought, "Well that's new."Not just TV shows. Commercials are also featuring mixed race and homosexual couples more and more.
They usually don't with me either - and I get you with that commercial, I think the guy was missing part of his arm? And I thought, why is this "controversial"? I didn't notice.Gay and mixed race couples don't register with me.
Like pandering. But honestly, the way people are these days you have to have everyone represented or they'll bitch. There was some controversy about Dove shower soap, which thought their bottle should represent a multitude of female figures, catching hell for "body shaming" and "where's my body shape??"It doesn't so much bother me as it feels like political correctness.
