My point is that any sane person would recognize how outside of the norm and grotesque this specific ad was, instead of downplaying it completely - and blathering about how most people are just too dense to see "the greater issue surrounding the commercialization of holidays".
Most people are not too dense to see "the greater issue surrounding the commercialization of holidays" - it's just that you are too dense to see how outside of the norm and grotesque this specific ad was.
Even the family that made the ad had the DECENCY to see how horrible it was and to APOLOGIZE.
If they had followed your nonsensical way of "thinking", then they would have turned it into some elitist argument about how average people are just too stupid to see the "greater, abstract problem at hand".
Plus, you even tried to introduce some SJW BS about how "being a little bit brown" was going to make them victims or something.
