“We’re whites, and for now we’re on top. We’ve had a great run, from presidents to senators, hundreds of years. But we know it won’t last forever, so for these final years of white dominance, we’re going to soak it all in.”
The commercial is absurd and hilarious but also strikingly biting. Of course, unlike the fake ad’s “intended” message about the decline of white people, the real message is clear: America is changing, and it’s time to accept that. Over the past decade, there’s been a marked increase in the number of Hispanic, Asian and black Americans holding major roles in politics and business, as well as a huge increase in the number of Hispanic people in America; they now constitute the country’s largest minority at roughly 17% of the nation’s total population.
