VIDEO: Did Airbnb Super Bowl Commercial Take A Subtle Shot At Trump’s Travel Ban?

Airbnb, a tech company whose app helps people find lodging, aired a Super Bowl advertisement on Sunday night. Here it is:

The 30-second commercial features this passage, strung out over the course of the spot: “We believe no matter who you are, where you’re from, who you love, or who you worship, we all belong. The world is more beautiful the more you accept. ”

It’s a simple, powerful statement, and it appears over the top of images of various non-white-man demographics. The ad, in this political climate and weeks after Donald Trump’s inauguration, is a quiet political stance against cultural and political suppression of minorities and other disadvantaged groups.
