Acura Only Wanted Light-Skinned African Americans for NSX Super Bowl Commercial With Seinfeld

Acura Only Wanted Light-Skinned African Americans for NSX Super Bowl Commercial With Seinfeld

Get ready, Acura, you're about to be in a heap of trouble. Originally the much-hyped TV debut of the Acura NSX concept, the commercial led by car fanatic Jerry Seinfeld has turned into an issue of race discrimination. TMZ got its hands on one of the casting sheets for Acura's NSX Super Bowl spot and found some questionable specifications for the role. The sheet describes the ideal "African American Car Dealer" to be "Nice looking, friendly. Not too dark." Acura has yet to respond, but we doubt the silence will last too long.
