Yes, it's the turn of Coca-Cola to face the wrath of Americans as they Air a commercial promoting harmony, and diversity.
At this point I'd be ashamed to be an American, what was Coca-Cola thinking of?
America the Beautiful, sung in languages other than English, is nothing sacred?
Well, no, it's a song, it speaks of the beauty of America, (or the USA as some of us less geographically challenged like to refer to it), it's a song that speaks of the landscapes, the lush rolling fields, the bountiful plains, the majestic mountains, the brotherhood .... oh wait, must be a misprint ... nope, clearly mentions brotherhood..
I approve of this commercial, of what it says, that the USA is made up of Immigrants from all four corners of the globe, ( incidentally, do globes have corners?), and while English is indeed spoken by most, it's not actually the official language of the USA, the USA has no official language.
What this commercial has shown is something that the USA has long denied to itself, it's deeply racist, that's right, I'm playing the 'race card', but it's true, the objection to someone singing in any other language but English is quite simply racist, it discriminates on the basis that the language originally spoken by a small Island in the Northern Atlantic is somehow the only proper language to praise a country made up mostly of people who at some time in their ancestry, were immigrants, regardless of what language their forebears spoke.
These however are not the only objections to this commercial, oh no, there's more, apparently it promotes 'gay lifestyle', so what of that, the mere fact that the composer of the song was a woman who lived for 25 years with her 'friend', another woman, so history relates, does this mean the composer of the song should also be disgraced and the song itself struck from the memories of mankind?
A final thought, I have seen many comments on this commercial's disrespect for the national anthem of the United states of America, really? disrespect? I think it's far more disrespectful to 'The Star Spangled Banner' the actual national anthem of The United states of America that supposed patriots don't even know their own national anthem.
If I was The United states of America right now I'd be hanging my head in shame, shame that a nation that holds itself up as a bastion of freedom and democracy has such racism, bigotry, homophobia and stupidity in it's midst, sort yourself out, you're dragging the good name of your nation in the mud, yes you, the person boycotting Coca-Cola for a song, when you never said a word about them sponsoring the Winter Olympics.
that's what you should be boycotting them for!
