The Real SuperBowl Controversy

While much of America is still tweeting about MIA’s middle finger flash during the halftime performance, viewers in Michigan are discussing something more controversial: Pete Hoekstra’s racist campaign ad.

What do you think of this ad? Will its offensiveness damage Hoekstra’s chances of election or help him (especially in predominantly-white Michigan)?
