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.
