Cox High Speed Internet latest commercial showing a white couple adopting a Chinese child from Shanghai is racist.

There are thousands of American-born children, many of them minority, desperately wanting to be adopted by a loving couple. The couple in the commercial do not speak Chinese and are using their computers to learn how to greet the child.

Instead of using a Chinese child, the commercial could have shown how to make a non-white adopted child feel welcome. Rather than subliminally supporting foreign adoptions at the expense of American born children, Cox should put a positive spin on the need of children here.

The existing commercial is bluntly discriminating and should be removed from the air.

Product or Service Mentioned: Cox Communications Commercial.

Reason of review: Racial discriminating commercial.

Preferred solution: Remove commercial.

I actually love that commercial and think it is just adorable that a couple wants to learn another language so they can adopt a child from another country.
