Dove says it deeply regrets ‘racist’ Facebook advert

Personal care brand Dove has been forced to apologise after releasing a series of “racist” images that appeared to show a black woman turning white after using the soap.

The “deeply ignorant” campaign sees a black woman peeling off her T-shirt to reveal a white woman underneath her skin.

A third image shows the white woman undressing to reveal an Asian woman.

I’m offended too! How come no one got mad about the white women turning into an Asian?

    Isn’t the white female turning into an asian female a good thing, since unless she has yet to be accepted into University, it will result in higher marks and test scores? Not so good if she has yet to apply for admittance to a university though since many (most?) universities deprecate asians’ entrance scores as an affirmative action policy.

    Enough with the offense and assorted social justice crap – how much you all want to bet this sjw crap is being financed by the chinese – and various billionaires to make us chase our tails around while they further clamp their hands around our throats. The chinese last year kind of let the cat out of the bag at Davos when they said no one should give up on globalism (while of course they pursue their dreams of global conquest).

    I’m surprised that they didn’t think this would cause a controversy. Most ads today go out of the way to make black’s look superior to whites in every way.

  • Brett McS

    There wouldn’t be a controversy if they had just restricted their ad campaign to a few selected areas … that is, every country on earth except for perhaps the UK, and parts of the US outside the black areas.

    Deep-down ethnic cleansing?
    Oh come on, I couldn’t have been the first to think of that!

    I am SO sick of this politically correct shyte.

    An odd thing is, though many, or even most, blacks hate whites, black women sometimes seem to go out of their way to look more like white women. Whatever progressives may like to think, it seems white women are generally considered the gold standard in female attractiveness.

      back when i did a semester at a US university in the early 90’s all the black guys were trying to have sex with white girls. They wete basing social status on how many white girls they could get knocked up.

      I expect things haven’t gotten better.

    So from black to white to death pallor

    It’s a dumb (really dumb!) advert concept from the get-go.
    Marketing Team meeting: “OK, guys; here’s the challenge, how many women can we offend with a single advert?”
