P&G Now Spoon-Feeding Identity Politics to the Masses

Procter & Gamble is the latest brand to use social justice in an advertising campaign, releasing an ad earlier this month about “the talk” black parents have with their children.

Michelle Malkin wrote about the ad, and Glenn Beck shared the story on Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.” Malkin said the ad “plays as a kinder, gentler version of Black Lives Matter propaganda.”

“So now Procter & Gamble is spoon-feeding our society?” Glenn asked.

Part of the “My Black Is Beautiful” ad campaign, the new 1:10 TV spot features scenes like a mom talking to her teenage daughter about “when” she will get pulled over by a police officer while driving, not “if.”

WATCH: This is the Maybach Ultimate Luxury SUV (2020)

Mercedes-Benz is presenting the Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury. The design of the crossover, based on an exclusive high-end saloon and an SUV, follows the philosophy of Sensual Purity.

The show car combines the comfort and typical strengths of both body styles. These include the raised seating position and the athletic looks. The Vision Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury is conceived as an electric car. Thanks to its four compact permanent-magnet synchronous motors, it offers fully variable all-wheel drive. The output from the powertrain is 550 kW (750 horsepower). The flat underfloor battery has a usable capacity of around 80 kWh, producing an NEDC range of over 500 kilometres (according to EPA: over 200 miles). The top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155mph).

The fast-charging function is also convenient: thanks to DC charging based on the CCS standard, the system allows a charging capacity of up to 350 kW. In just five minutes, enough power can be charged to achieve an additional range of around 100 kilometres (62 miles).
