I came across this ad at an interesting time, when the presidential campaigns in the US are showing Americans' true colors, or rather, the real depths of racism in America.

Had this ad come out in the US, that novela would be off the air faster than you could say "lawsuit."
What do you think? Is this racist, or not so politically correct?
