In the Late Sixties or early seventies, test was taken to prove how separating one distinct group of people from the other can distort their ability from learning. The test was give to; elementary students, middle student and some adults. The groups were blonde hair blue eyed children and adults along with dark haired dark eyed students and adults. The dark haired children were told that they could not play with the blonde children and the blonde children were told that they were superior to the dark haired children and the were not to communicate with them. At the end of the day, they both were tested and the dark haired children of whom many of them were smarter than their light haired friends, tested poorly. the scene was switched around this time with the dark haired children were the superior ones.
This test was given to the middle schooler and some adults with the same scenario and results.

This lead to my complaint. In your commerical all of them, the first one being with the little blonde haired child and dark haired child. The gentleman asked the dark haired child did she want a pony, and she said "Yes". Then he asked the blonde haired child and she responded the same way the other child did, but, he called out a real pony. The look on the dark haired child face was to familiar to me. Then the other two shows the man (1) inviting the dark haired child to ride a bike, the prohibits her from going outside the measured marks. (2) taking the eggs from the child who find them.

Now, I am not sure what point your bank is trying to make, but I can tell you one thing, it does not invite me, an Afro-American, to open up an account with your bank.

I hope that you would dicontinue these commericals for the good of everyone that watches it. Because it promote one group of people being superior over another.

Thank you for listening.

    Really, it's a commercial, and simply a joke... The point of the commercial is to advertise, and show how Ally is different from some of the potential unethical behaviors of other banks and businesses.

    Your complaint shows the problem with our society today.. I mean don't get me wrong, I'm all about equality for everyone, but damn... We used to have a little thing in this country called "freedom of speech" that our founding fathers died for, which, thanks to the smiling savages that have taken over the government, is diminshing each day. These days, it seems like everytime someone says something, or every time you try to have a good time, it has to turn into a bunch of politically correct [censor]. I mean, everytime theres a little joke on a show such as South Park or Family Guy, someone gets pissed off and has to sue over it..

    It is unfortunate that people believe Ally's lies regarding how ethical they are. They are still GMAC Mortage, the most unethical "bank" on the planet.

    The US Government gave 14 Trillion dollars to GMAC Mortgage in bailout money when the Fed declared them a bank to qualify them, even though they were not a bank. GMAC Mortgage never repaid those bailout loans and are now 56% owned by the US Treasury.

    After the Government bailed them out, GMAC Mortgage foreclosed on more homes than any other mortgage company, resulting in plenty of wrongful foreclosure lawsuits against them. No one bailed out the US Citizens, and Ally Financial proved to be an “Ally” to no one when they robbed the nation from the top and bottom.

    During the Mortgage Crisis which they were partially responsible for, GMAC Mortgage were unable to properly answer their phones and rushed to hire a completely untrained staff who remain poorly trained to this day. Customers waited months for customer service. Most either got none, or got service so poor that it may have been illegal.

    Suddenly they have decided to rename themselves and to take advantage of their “bank” status with online bank accounts.

    Your money will be FDIC insured, but will your conscience allow you to lend your money to the people who are more responsible for the collapse of our economy than anyone else?
