this is becoming ignorant.
1. not all black people say drank
2. not all black people talk like that
3. those that do aren't the best educated, thus infering don't have the best income so what would make you think that they would spend there money on a drink that is spelled "drank"
4. yes chapelle said "purple drank" yes his is black, but what makes you think that all black people use that word because one famous black person did a skit on it?
5. Im black

It's not racist, just simple marketing. Everytime a product is for sell, it has a certain demographic it is trying to reach. Does every black person say "drank"? No but there are a good many who do. And you are correct, it is mainly the uneducated who do. But the simple fact is, black males generally have the highest highschool drop out rate and the highest incarceration rate, and thats NOT racist, just statistics. I'm sure that this came up in the marketing meetings more than once. There are things marketed specifically towards black people and there are things marketed specifically towards white people. No rascism is intended, just simple free market at work.

Purple drank is lean + sprite. This is a "legal alternative" just like the Cocaine energy drink.

Just like everything else, poor people still spend their money on stupid ****. Which is usually a factor in them being poor.

I think you feel this way because you are incredibly disconnected from black culture and are hiding behind of piss poor veil of political correctness.

You followed up a moderately respectable statement with a retarded one and I lost all hope.

everyone buys rims, the milder the climate and winters (VA and down) the more rims you will see. white/black/asian/etc.

however, in order to save your second quote, I do say that strategy is probably how companies market the stupid big impractical rims which have a very concentrated market if you get where i'm going
Final Thought: This product isn't marketed to any particular audience when it comes to race, it is marketed to any one stupid enough to pick up this can and walk to the register to buy it.

The End

Yes, I know what "purple drank" is. If you think im "disconnected from black culture" you are badly mistaken. My high school was just under 50% black. A few cities surrounding me, which feed into my local high school, are populated by mostly black people. Detroit is shipping out many of their kids to my area because they are closing down schools due to lack of funds. These schools are in poorer areas which are primarily made up of black people. So honestly, what makes me so ignorant?

The fact that you have your head shoved so far up your ***, you cant come to terms with this being primarily marketed towards blacks and "urban" culture.

I have sampled this. Weirdest high I have ever had by far, it was enjoyable but doubt very seriously I'd ever do it again. It tastes like **** by the way.

Kind of a crazy concept but i might give it a shot sometime.

Oh and steffon...if you think this isn't marketed to a specific audience you need to wake up. you think companies go around just making up products and seeing who buys them?
