A Christmas Commercial

A particular Christmas Commercial caught my eye:

The above Star Trek scene was considered controversial (the first inter-racial kiss on TV) in the 1960’s when it aired. The sad thing is, the same pairing would be considered controversial today, which is why it has not been repeated. The pairing of a White guy kissing a Black woman, is just impossible. Black guys object, just as Black women don’t like the Black guy and White woman pairing much either. But that’s not the reason you don’t see White guys smooching up Beyonce.

It is that White women, who form the target of the commercials and reality shows and most of TV, object. If Black women had cultural power, their objections would have killed the Lexus commercial and the Levi’s Commercial. Lexus and Levi’s don’t care. They’re selling to White women, and basically no one else. This is why, more than forty years since Kirk kissed Uhura on TV, it is almost impossible to find a White guy and Black woman pairing. While the other way around sells jeans or luxury cars. It is certainly “funny” to mock clueless White guys (“Hey, Beyonce is right THERE dummy!”) in female-oriented commercials.

[Interestingly, there are a few commercials featuring a White guy and Asian wife/girlfriend. Almost none of the other way around, Asian Guy and White Wife/girlfriend. It would appear the losers in the way the sexes are depicted inter-racially are Asian Men, and Black Women, most of all. The SWPL blog entry entitled “Asian Women” generated thousands of vituperative comments from Asian men, complaining about the disparity and how they are viewed in the ruthless sexual marketplace. So diversity tends to produce winners and losers. Asian men find the White guy / Asian woman pairing no less disagreeable than Black women find the Black guy / White woman pairing.]

Is it likely that these commercials will generate a mass wave of inter-racial marriage/kids? Nope. Most people marry and have kids within their own race, and this is unlikely to change, being quite stable over time. While there are solid advantages to mating across races (hybrid vigor, disease resistance among some groups, avoiding genetic bottlenecks among some groups, attraction of the “forbidden” and even racial preferences for not being White), the question of who your in-laws will be remains large. Marriage and family is not merely a question of passion and romance. There is the question of a whole host of people who are now related to you, and to whom you have mutual obligations. Mass immigration also tends to suppress marriage across groups. Hispanics after mass immigration, as well as Asians, tend to inter-marry less where there is a large pool of people of the same race (like Southern California). It makes family life easier, juggling in-laws and grandparents and the like. Only among the military (where the civilian/military divide looms larger than that of race, try being deployed for two years in Iraq) is inter-racial coupling anything other than rare. Jewish enthusiasm for out-marriage is probably the anomaly, and likely explained by a desire to avoid considerable genetic bottlenecks (it is not fun to have a kid with Taysachs disease).

It is entirely possible, however, for the natural disdain that White women have for White guys who adopt the typical Beta male posture (diffident, non-aggressive behavior that “keeps heads down” in the multicultural wars) can be accelerated by this advertising and reality blitz. The beneficiaries won’t be rappers, or Black athletes, but rather the few men, mostly White, who can create “soft harems” by appealing to their inner Ashton Kutcher. Acting like a self-centered jerk. Which is the whole point of the Kutcher commercials. “Of course he’s a jerk ladies, but you still want him, BECAUSE he’s a jerk. And his camera!”

Which is a dagger aimed right at the heart of the West. Most women can’t marry Reggie Bush. Or even be his girlfriend/mistress on the side. Even Tiger Woods could carry only a few hundred or so. But the rest can be the shared, part time girlfriends of would-be-Kutchers. Instead of generally happy wives/mothers in a relationship like that of their grandmothers at least. One that produces the next generation of people.

The end result is not widespread inter-racial marriage. But a sterile, San Francisco/Portland/Seattle playpen for adults. No children present, save the one designer eugenic baby by IVF at age 41, by a single mother. Beta White guys are already not very popular. It won’t take much to make them even less popular.

  1. "Asian men find the White guy / Asian woman pairing no less disagreeable than Black women find the Black guy / White woman pairing."Possibly. Although on Larry Elder's radio show a few years back, he was discussing this topic, and had a caller who identified himself as Asian. The caller said that seeing the white guy/Asian girl pairing upset him, but when Elder then followed up by asking "what if she's unattractive?" the the guy very matter-of-factly stated "then I don't care."

    Seems like the current version of your thesis is something like this:By promoting black "super-alpha" masculinity, the media does not significantly increase interracial relationships between white women and black men. But by doing this, the media is also indirectly promoting a certain "super-alpha" attitude, from which mostly white alphas are benefiting.So women mostly don't want black alphas, but they do want the whites who emulate them most closely.Do I have it right?

    looks like you were right about dvd's affecting hollywood:http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-cover-ct-hollywood-assistants-20101219,0,2073189.storyin the future, if hollywood wants to appeal to a broader base (and make more money), it will have to market things that are more palatable to masses, including men.but, i think politically provocative commercials will always have their niche.

  4. OhioStater says:

    I'd say white women with black guys is a counter-signal, such as George Bush choosing a Timex over Rolex.The Lexus ad works because a white woman looks at it and thinks "my husband is white, I make more than him, and I can't afford that. She must be special".That is a Japanese company afterall and it's likely their advertising agency is either really hip, or the Japanese don't have a problem with inter-racial dating in America.I'd discount the "athlete" angle in the commercial since he's not that big and slightly balding. The fact that she's giving him the car implies she has more money than him.

    Yes IHTG, you are correct. You have it right.
