A public outcry over alleged racist overtones forces German car manufacturer Volkswagen to pull an advertisement and issue an apology.

 Pretty bizarre ad. 

An attempt at being edgy? But surely carried way beyond good taste and ultimately only appealing to Americans.

I wonder if they genuinely thought casting a black man was giving them a racial diversity credit?

i think it was intended as a self-depreciating skit on arrogance.

I don't like that "there will be consequences" thing - comics are paid to be edgy and are bound to get it wrong sometimes. Move on people, not a story.

As children trickle back into classrooms in some states from this week, what can students, parents and teachers do to combat racism?

They can stop putting racist memes in their newspapers and media.

I point out an excellent example concerning FGM - and you just get massively abusive towards me.

You want a World War (chiefly in order not to tackle Climate Change) and you're war-mongering against the Chinese.

They're retaliating against Hong Kong - one can hardly blame them, when its a western outpost of culture and spying used against them.
