Way to perpetuate a negative stereotype for profit!

WARNING! Rant mode is ON!

On my ride home tonight I hear a radio add for a computer service. Name of the business is certified nerds. Wait what? This is one of the few if not the only example of the allowable use of a negative stereotype to promote a business. This is the same problem I have with Geek Squad. Maybe I'm too close to the situation being identified with said group, working in I.T. myself.

I don't see any adds for wetback landscaping. Just saying...
