If we are going to go after Walmart, I think we should target Toshiba first, because Toshiba is a GCT (Global Corporate Terrorist). Here's a link to just a few of their heinous crimes:

Today's Toshiba horror story involves a commercial involving T-Pain (Famous Rapper). At first, the commercial doesn't seem to be that bad, but if you add up all of Toshiba's other actions and you really watch the commercial, it's worse than Amos and Andy!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T-Pain

During the commercial, T-Pain's only contribution is talking Gibberish and spilling food on the laptop. They take the laptop back to the lab and the white woman scientist creates a laptop that you can wipe off. This is bullshit! You can do that with any laptop. However, I bet if you actually dropped that on the laptop, it is just as likely not to work as any other laptop. Furthermore, they could have easily gone in a positive direction. T-Pain could have come in and said to make your laptop more apt at handling video and audio editing software like apple. Basically, there was a million different directions Toshiba's commercial could have gone, but they chose to go in a direction I think was racist.

Here's the commercial, judge for yourself.

This other commercial shows what they think of their customers in general. Toshiba thinks your just a bunch of mindless zombies. You aren't worth a damn. Besides, if you dropped that computer like that, it wouldn't work regardless.

It's no coincidence that Toshiba is currently being sued for sexism too.

Here is Toshiba's top brass. Not one woman among them. What a shock! They all appear to be white too. So much for diversity!

Hey stuart where do you learn so much about toshiba? And how did you first become aware of it?

[-] 1 points by stuartchase (861) 8 years ago

They made the mistake of trying to fuck me over. They found out I'm pretty well connected. But most of the information came from my own tireless research. However, the stuff about the U.S. military secrets being sold came from a friend who was working on the very sub Toshiba was selling secrets about.

For what it is worth, I remember as a kid in the 1980s watching Amos and Andy video episodes on VCR tapes. I actually thought that the characters were very likable, unlike a lot of the African-American people that I see on TV today. For that matter, most people I see on TV today. We have become a society of narcissists, all across the socioeconomic and racial spectrum. That is a battle I would join to fight against.

Your welcome! Here's some others from the KTC soundtrack. If you like them, give us a "I'm down with the KTC, the Revolution starts here!" New members usually do it.

Yeah, that T-Pain commercial is insulting, not only to minorities with its stereotyped characterization but to the viewer as well, another example of the dumbing-down so typical in advertising and the media in general. It's another example of a TV commercial whose lame attempt at humor fails big time..

Today's horror story isn't as bad as part 1 of the Toshiba Horror Stories, but I think people dig it. :)
