Presidential Historian: Coca-Cola's Revised Ad Shows Americans Still See Country as 'Melting Pot'
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, presidential historian Craig Shirley said that Coca-Cola's decision to revise their controversial "America the Beautiful" ad and specifically reference America's unofficial motto, "E Pluribus Unum," in the ad's opening segment shows that the company quickly understood their original ad missed the mark with the majority of Americans.
"Coca-Cola has realized they made a mistake," Shirley said, "but showed intelligence by quickly responding to valid conservative criticisms by adding the 'E Pluribus Unum' patriotic disclaimer at the front of the ad."
"The storm of opposition to Coke’s infamously tasteless ad shows that a vast majority of Americans still see this country as a melting pot and not a gaggle of entitled special interest groups," Shirley added.
Shirley is a well respected biographer of Ronald Reagan.
