    Guys, without having seen the advert in question, I'm willing to bet dollars to donuts that this 'advert' was a video cobbled together in-house by a junior Outsurance social media staff member.

    As such, I can almost guarantee they used a source of free stock videos, because they wouldn't have had budget unlocked by the executives (who claim to have been unaware of this whole thing).

    Now anybody in South Africa who has ever tried to access free stock videos OF South Africans will tell you: they don't exist. It sounds quite reasonable to me that they accessed some American or European library, where the free content is the stuff that's deemed to have no real value. Probably a bunch of cheesy footage of white guys playing with their children.

    Isn't that so much easier to believe than a wild conspiracy theory of racist Outsurance staffers physically blocking desperate black applicants from their casting call?

    What makes me think this is the case is because it's a social-media-only video. Nobody employs a professional media agency to create a video advert for a special holiday (something that will cost north of R200 000) and then restricts that to a single social media message. That, and the executives claiming they weren't aware of it and wouldn't have approved the video if they had known.
    Change is the only constant.

    Were they doing things only white men are capable of doing?

    Non racist people would have just seen a father figure in the advert.

    Yes, creating an opportunity to call them racist of cause, duh...
    I never apologise. I’m sorry, that’s just the way I am.

    Idiot OUTsurance. NEVER apologize to SJWs. Just tell them to f off. I won't ever support OUTsurance because they gave in to these inbreds.

    It was obviously an exceptionally slow day for snowflakes and SJWs on Sunday. Haven't seen it. Will not see it. Honestly do not care either.

    My opinion is immaterial in the bigger scheme of things for such matters in cyberspace. But I feel better for venting my thoughts

    This.
    I think there's a huge gap in the market for people with the EQ skills in dealing with the psychology of social issues etc. when it comes to public perception of a brand.

    Any company's marketing and public relations team who's even remotely clued up on what's been happening on social media would know that apologizing to perpetual SJW victims only digs your own hole deeper and that capitulating to the vocal minority has exactly the opposite effect if what these companies expect.
    The other side of the coin might not be as vocal, but we're numerous.

    Speaking to my black female colleagues , they say "It's not racist, have you ever seen a black childs father ?" ... clearly there is a different perception than that of guilty feeling SJW's.

    Different perceptions everywhere, how do you like Mushroom's?
    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.
