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.
