Black model defends Dove ad, says it wasn’t racist

Lola Ogunyemi unwittingly found herself at the center of an international furor over a 3-second video posted on Dove’s US Facebook page which showed her removing her t-shirt to reveal a white woman, who then took hers off to reveal an Asian woman.

“I don’t feel it was racist,” she said in an interview with the BBC on Wednesday.

The ad was not racist. Now this poor girl has been cheated out of potential earnings as a result of it being pulled. Way to go SJW’s.

    That poor girl. She obviously suffers from “internalized deplorable intersectionality”. The ad is clearly racist, sexist, ableist, sizeist, etc. SJWs have proclaimed it so. No further debate will be allowed.

    The people who thought that the black girl as “dirty” and the white girl as “clean” are the real racists.

    If she hadn’t gone full on Ginger it may have been more acceptable….

      Gingers are the most beautiful women on the planet. They tend toward crazy, but most beautiful women do. Ginger men tend to go prematurely bald, which is a bit of a high price to pay. That being said I have an ever expanding forehead and I am not ginger. My beard used to be a beautiful shade of red, but now I look more like Santa Claus than Eric the Red. There are a lot of gingers in my family. My son is, but on the strawberry blond side of the spectrum.

        My favorite Ginger is Rogers.

        100%. I am like your son, strawberry blonde, red beard/stach.
        Can’t tolerate much sun.
        I hope you did not think I was being disrespectful of gingers though.
        I trace back to the land of gingers….

          Not at all. Unlike some, I am not humour impaired.

    Leftists originally promoted this by omitting the Latina (or whatever*) third woman at the end so it falsely appeared that the ad was about a black woman turning into a ‘cleaner’ white woman, when in fact it was an ad showing that their soap/lotion was great for all their clients’ races.
    * I read Latina in original reports but maybe it was an Oriental or mixed-race lady.

    pah!
    Globalist WAR propaganda!
    Looking at race through skin colour is naturally a ridiculous argument
    But, the Globalists whip up the air to paint the Nationalist position being a ridiculous one of skin colour

    It’s f’ing SOAP fercrisssake; everything else is political pandering, in this case really badly done.
