They know when particular commercials are slotted, and what segments in sports they are going to report way before hand. It's not like they ran this 2 or 3 commercials after Gabby story.. They ran it IMMEDIATELY after it.
Idiot, how did they know who was going to win that event when they put the commercial in that slot? If a white athlete had won instead the same commercial would have aired at the same time. Would people be playing the race card then?

So what about all the other "subliminal shots" NBC has taken at her by praising and building her reputation up as this teenage rock star?
Ok and? What choice does NBC have, they HAVE to talk about the 2x Gold Medalist and praise her. WHY? Because she represents the USA. So do you really think NBC praising her makes it ok to immediately air a commercial of a monkey doing the same event, after talking about an african american gymnast?

Thats like a mexican american winning a track race, and NBC praising him as one of the first to do this and that, then IMMEDIATELY cutting to a Nike commercial showing a mexican person on the track and his opponents are Boarder patrol officers... They know the world is watching, they know African Americans and being called a monkey is a sensitive subject. Yet you mean to tell me the VP's didn't think that "hmm maybe we shouldn't run that commercial immediately afterwards"

Bad timing? Playing the race card? No it was a subliminal shot of praising a black person on live air, but quickly have to knock them down in some fashion directly or subliminally as it always seems to happen.



Calm down. Ever think it was good timinig for them to promote their show? It did just happen after the gymnastic finals, which the commercial plays off of, and it was prime time for everyone to see. Nah. You have to play the race card,
The Olympics and that even was happening for 2 hours prior. Why couldn't it have just been aired during that time? Why did it have to be shown IMMEDIATELY after discussing the black gymnast. The COMMERCIAL itself is not an issue, it's the timing, and when they decided to show the commercial. I don't find it coincidental, I think it was done on purpose.

And sh*t like this will always be tolerated, why? Because fu*kers like you will always make excuses for it, and the black community will always be ignored and looked upon as "complaining"..

Yet the sh*t continues to happen.

You really think Pro Obama NBC did that on purpose.
This guy is saying, NBC is for pro African American president, they wouldn't put a racist message out there knowingly.

So you telling me that 1 hour prior NBC couldn't switch the slot quickly? They had no idea what was going to be ran prior? Of course they'll come out and say they had no idea(because thats the easy way out), but theres a control room that edits things all the time, and they had PLENTY of time to rearrange the commercial after she won the gold..

You're sitting here acting like this happened 15min after she won.. When she won the gold more than a hour before the commercial aired.


White folks will make all sorts of excuses for fu*kery..

lol yall really believe that a major television network would purposefully risk a firestorm of controversy (and possible litigation if a disgruntled intern ever decided to release private memos)?

For what? so some programming director can sit back and say "haha! take that you dirty monkeys"



the only color that matters is green. Racism is corporate taboo because its bad PR and bad PR means advertisers cut funding, shareholders suffer and people get fired. No white person is gonna risk their job, advertising $$ and a media sh*tstorm just so they can have a little inside monkey joke...lmao I cant believe yall seriously believe this sh*t

yall writing essays about this sh*t but I bet you've never written this much about the state of school funding or city infrastructure in black neighbourhoods or any other REAL issue relating to social inequality or race

You guys do know NBC doesn't pick what ads are played when, the time slots are bought by the media buyers for the company running the ad right? The first spot and the last spot in a commercial batch are always sought after the most by companies because of the invention of the pvr.

I do. It was still funny. And I am seeing some coonery in here so I can't get mad at the truth cause it came from a racist.

So had any other athlete won they could've kept the commercial but you think they should've moved it solely because she won? Which one of these scenarios sounds racist to you?
a)slotting a commercial about a show and airing it during primetime after an event that the show relates to
b)slotting a commercial about a show and airing it during primetime after an event that the show relates to, but changing the order at the last min cause a black girl won

Y'all trippin. Wanting special treatment bout non issues. OP and the rest of you only ones who compared her to a monkey. That's the first thing that should come to the mind of a racist watching that. You need to get ur sh*t together not nbc, in this instance.
