Retailer in Peru forced to pull catalogue filled with blond models

Chilean-owned retailer Saga Falabella grudgingly agrees to withdraw its Christmas shopping catalogue because of widespread protests against the hair and skin colour of its models: almost exclusively blond and white.

In Toronto, they pulled down the subway posters.

Meanwhile, in Peru, a major retailer has been obliged to cancel an entire Christmas advertising catalogue.

In both cases, the cause of the disturbance is much the same: it has to do with skin colour…

    Gosh that sounds very much like racism, but it just cannot be. After all we are constantly told that only whites are racist. Still it is the same lunatic fanatics forcing their way on everyone else. If you don’t like the product, then don’t purchase it. Then if the retailer finds the product doesn’t sell, he will probably decide not to supply it. It seems that plenty of people in every country operate on the basis of searching for reasons to be offended, or at least to claim that they are. I am offended therefore do what I tell you to do.

    Chile has a LOT of ethnically European people. Peru on the other hand has a quasi-ruling class that’s ethnically Japanese.
