Jamaicans say VW’s Super Bowl ad isn’t racist; White Americans disagree

Jamaicans like the ad:

Everyone calling the Jamaican Super Bowl ad racist obviously no nothing about our culture. We love & endorse it.

As I fellow Jamaican…VW’s ad was very funny not racist…people need to chill

But what do Jamaicans know?  Some white Americans insist they know better:

OMG THIS AD IS SO RACIST.

It just me or was VW’s ad incredibly racist? “white people doing jamaican accents? Classic!” – some coked up VW exec.

Am I the only one that thought the Jamaican accent VW ad just now was vaguely racist?
