Since we’re keeping score of the races at the Oscars, instead of the track I suppose, what do you do when you can’t tell who “won” the race? Is that a Red, White, or Black card you’ve got there? Oh, it’s a Joker? So that can take the place of any other card, right?
Advertising has for a while now taken advantage of the Joker. The card that the player can pretend is any card they want. The ambiguous race.
Hey, she’s Black like me. Or wait a second, I think I see some Yellow in there. Or is she just a tanned White? Italian, maybe Portuguese? Indian? Well whatever she is, she’s kind of like me, so I’ll buy your product. Here’s my money. My Green money.
The Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, are a little behind the times here. They’ve got to hire some “ambiguous races” to host, or at least hand out some awards. Especially if they can’t find any ambiguous race actors to give awards to. Maybe the awards shouldn’t be so Gold.
Then again, maybe I’m a Horse. No, Half-Horse. No wait, I’m a Bull. I mean, I’m just Bull.
