Diet Racism: The Official Drink of Brands That Just Don’t Get It

Do not buy for your social media manager

The official drink of the Washington Redskins … and Dave & Buster's?

College Humor created this fake ad a little while back for Diet Racism—the drink that has all the sweet ignorance of regular racism but with none of the guilt or self-awareness. It's the drink of choice for people who don't realize that the phrase "I'm not racist, but …" doesn't magically make whatever comes after it less racist.

It's actually been quite a year for discussions of racism involving brands. Maybe this fake commercial could be a good hiring tool for potential brand or social media managers. If they laugh, maybe they'll be a little less likely to go full-on racist in a tweet.

If they tell you the Irish really were persecuted too, well, there's a red flag.
