Sony Handycam ad infantilizes black men?

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

What do you folks think of this ad? (Hat tip to HighJive) I’ve been seeing it on phone booths around New York City, and for some reason it vaguely bothers me. Maybe because it reminds me of John Singleton’s Baby Boy and the idea that African-American men are infantilized by society and never grow up. I’m not sure. What do you think?
