Coke commercial had the right message

Success - Article sent! close

It is disheartening that there has been so much criticism of Coca-Cola's "America the Beautiful" Super Bowl ad because parts of the song were sung in languages other than English. Although Coke's intention with the commercial is to get people to drink their quintessential product, I still found a message of family and community in it, which is very American. All in all it was a nice, family-oriented commercial.

Instead of being so critical, why not expend our efforts to being more inclusive and embracing diversity. After all, these are what truly make "America the Beautiful."
