I believe you should look at this in an adverse way and that is the white male is being assaulted on all fronts -look and watch very closely at the media output how he is degraded in all things especially in commercials were he is made to look the fool -things they would never and do not do to a woman or minority however it is always O.K to use a White generic male -and also made to weak or effeminate thus as they would have it -take away their power -subliminal to many and en-graining over time.

The statistics support your claim. If you want to read some of them, get your hands on the book "The War Against Boys," by Christina Hoff Sommers.

It would be hard to convince me that they would ever reverse those roles in their commercials.
Sometimes it's hard to measure the distance between the supposedly established, respectable press and the seediest corners of hardcore pornography. On March 1, ABC's "Nightline" celebrated a porn star named "James Deen" (real name: Bryan Sevilla). The apparent "news" hook is his role in a forthcoming movie with the ever-more pathetic Lindsay Lohan.

ABC reporter Cecilia Vega sold Deen as a 27-year-old hazard to teenaged girls. They're boasting that he's found a new frontier of porn consumers, "some of them so young we couldn't even interview them on camera. Their parents had no idea that secretly they have a crush on a...
