MTV has pulled this ad along with other ones of the same nature after getting backlash. If you haven't seen them here is one that is getting the most exposure to point out the problem.

I'm not really sure what that video would be other than amusing. It could have been edited a tab better, that's one thing.

What is real is the fact that there will always be people who will not like someone just because of the color of their skin.
