Ancestry.com Has Pulled An Ad Amid Backlash That It Whitewashed The Violent History Of Slavery

quote [ Critics pointed out that the ad ignored the fact black women were often raped, not romantically wooed, by white slave owners. ]

Fuck them - they knew exactly what they were doing. Wouldn't surprise me if they drafted an apology statement before they shot the video. Want to impress people - how about they apologize for turning peoples DNA results over to government agencies without their consent?

Meh. How about not turning your DNA over to companies that have zero privacy protocols? At some point it's on you, right?
