Are adverts deliberately being racist?

Several big brands have been labelled “racist” recently after releasing adverts which have backfired.

H&M apologised in January for showing a black child modelling a hoodie which had “coolest monkey in the jungle” on the front, following a huge backlash.

Dove soap said sorry a few months earlier for releasing a series of images that appeared to show a black woman turning into a white person.
