Dove Regrets Soap Ad Showing Black Woman Turning Into White Woman
Huffington Post ^ | October 9, 2017 | Rebecca Shapiro

Dove has removed a Facebook ad that sparked outrage over the weekend for showcasing its body wash alongside a black woman who was shown pulling off her brown T-shirt to reveal a white woman wearing an ivory T-shirt.

Screenshots of the ad went viral on social media after makeup artist and model Naomi Leann Blake posted them to her Facebook page on Friday.

People are getting way too sensitive about this kind of stuff. She turned from black, to white to Indian. So what?

On second thought,
here's all I've got to say about that.

I don’t see that as racist at all.

People were being swapped out.

I can see Michelle being swapped out for Ed Asner.

Crazy word choice. They say this ad provoked outrage.

Are any of you outraged????

Why don’t they say who is outraged?? When we have these events which provoke outrage among the liberals, why don’t they say so? Why doesn’t the news story indicate that it provoked outrage among the liberals???? And only the liberals????

Wait a minute. The black woman in the ad, was SHE offended? If she wasn’t, who the hell else has a right to be?

Maybe I'm just not spring-loaded to connote racism at everything, but the ad seemed benign and inclusive to moi.

I’m white.

Would I have been outraged to see that white woman swapped out for the black woman?

Heck no.

End of race baiting pantload.

When your mindset is that blacks are the superior race, it makes sense.

This ad is just plain stupid. Whoever’s in marketing should be canned. New Coke’s ad was better.

What exactly was the intended message? Don’t know about “outraged”, but definitely insensitive to modern sensibilities.

Okay. Let me say this in response. I agree with what you said. One could also say...

When your mindset is that blacks are the superior race, very little makes sense. Of course it depends on your perspective.

I could elaborate considerably more than I will, but there are bright people in each racial segment.

I look at different areas of the world though, and at what people have done with their intelligence.

This ad is just plain stupid.

They were hoist on their own petard. They just had to have a black woman for racial balance.
