I do, but I don't. This is one of those things I'd love to be in a public speaking/debate class and I wouldn't care which side I was put on, I'd have a little bit of fun with it.

Point is, I can see both ways. To me its obvious that there is a problem with the criminals being all black, and the other side of the glass are white people. And the way each side is depicted as well. Basically, its out there enough that I would more than respect someone insulted by this.

BUT, I personally see this as one big goofball ad. I have a very crude sense of humor though and can handle a lot of really bad things hurled at me, especially in the scope of humor. Another reason why I wouldn't call someone wrong for being insulted by this. Mountain Dew pushed things or did weird things in their ads for years. The people the drink is marketed to are usually those types of people though, with that type of humor (That commercial with the Ram fighting that dude? I died when I was a kid, watching that.)
