please tell me I only imagined this...

but I could have sworn I just saw an American Express ad featuring Ellen DeGeneres being waited on by a Hispanic Maid (TM) straight from Central Casting. Someone please tell me I missed some crucial piece of information, or maybe I just imagined this whole thing, because as far as I can see, this was an example of really nasty and gratuitous racism and stereotyping, which I am sure some idiots at the HRC or whatever think is just dandy because hey, it's GLBT media exposure! Ack.
