Procter and Gamble "The Talk" Video

One of the biggest names in consumer products has waded into the national dialog on race.  One could expect how this turns out:

The stereotypes here are nearly laughable - the white kids chasing down the black kid in a clearly Southern locale (and called him the "N" word to boot).  The fact that there is so much abject racism in our society that in order to compete with whites that blacks need "to work twice as hard and be twice as smart."  That when cops stop blacks in America, the cops kill them.  Happens all the time.

All we missed were images of the Klan, because the Klan is everywhere.  Swing and a miss, P&G...

How does this advance our society?  What is the goal of this message?  

Most importantly, how in the hell is this going to sell more Tide?
