Accents in the News 
Volkswagen Super Bowl Advertising 
Accents seem to be getting in the news with increased frequency. What do you think of the new ad for Volkswagen? Is the Jamaican accent by the Minnesotan offensive or is it amusing? There have been very strong reactions about the appropriateness of  the Jamaican accent in this commercial. Some say it is racist. What do you think? Are people too sensitive? I would love to hear your thoughts.
