My complaint:

So from your representative’s mouth, Jennifer Hudson was interviewed by Access. I tuned in because I was excited to hear about Jennifer Hudson playing Aretha Franklin in an upcoming movie about her life. Instead of hearing these details, I heard about the movie in the beginning of the interview but then it morphed into an advertisement for MasterCard and how you have teamed up with Ms. Hudson to encourage people to use their MasterCard at “black owned businesses”. As opposed to shopping where? A white owned business God forbid. This is paybacksy time? I will use my Visa then because I hate it for you but white people still exist on the planet too And, if that interview was given by a white person and the word white was inserted in place of the word black, her career would be over and she would be expected to be fired from all jobs and deemed fit to be hired. I come to your website to leave a comment and all I see is more propaganda telling people to use your card at black owned businesses. Clearly Ms. Hudson represented your company as you see fit. I am not a racist. I would not be excited to see Jennifer Hudson play Aretha Franklin if I am racist. I don’t think you should allow race to determine where you shop period. Go ahead and promote your race war so you can be part of the problem. I could not be more disgusted with a company right now. Shame on you MasterCard. Obviously you want to create an environment of racism and you’ve accomplished it. Great job!

Justified complaint?

Suggested solution:

How about don’t create a campaign promoting one race against the rest. You should not tell your customers to use their MasterCard at black owned businesses. Race should not dictate where you shop unless shoppers are racist. I can’t believe I’m even having to type this and explain it. I cannot stand the thought of using my MasterCard right now and thank God I also have a Visa.
