Baby K’Tan’s child wrap, sling, or carrier is beneficial in that it enables caregivers to have their hands free, and it consoles crying babies. However, what it shouldn’t do is suggest that black mothers are single parents and white mothers are with the child’s father. OUCH!
Home Depot tweeted this controversial photo from its official @HomeDepot account. When will black men stop being associated with monkeys and apes?
It’s one thing to sale watermelon soda–which in itself sounds pretty gross. However, it’s another thing to market the soda as it features a black girl with big lips, eating a watermelon. This soda was sold at Target stores in New York. What a perfect example of racial stereotyping in its most shameful form.
No this is not a clip from a slave movie. This is a clip promoting the Feed a Child charity. This atrocious image features an upper-class white woman who’s feeding a treat to a young black boy as if he is a dog. For the life of me I can’t figure out how anyone could have thought this was okay.
Dove Summer Glow + Soft Shimmer seems very alluring, especially the fact that it consists of nourishing lotion for normal to WHAT??? Dark skin? Wait, what is considered normal skin and why is dark skin the latter?
I suppose Quaker Life Cereal assumed only idiots purchase their cereal considering they had to make sure that folks understood the black children represented the “maple and brown sugar” cereal and the white mother and child represented the original.
Oh Dove. I guess black women will be really tempted to use your product, especially those with really curly hair. That’s assuming they’re tempted to become a white woman with long blonde hair. I expect Dove sales to increase by … 0 %.
Mountain Dew created the perfect commercial perpetuating the racial stereotype of black men as criminals. Good job adding to the problem of racial disparity amongst minorities, Mountain Dew.
This image seems cute enough, featuring an adorable white child separating the brown M&Ms from the bunch. All M&Ms taste the same to everyone, including children. But what message is M&M trying to convey? Not really sure.
PopChips posted a YouTube video with Ashton Kutcher in brown make-up playing an Indian character, Raj. This image just isn’t right and several people agreed via social media.
Sony’s very controversial PSP billboard reads, “White is coming.” It features an image of an aggressive white woman gripping the face of a shorter black woman. Sony had the temerity to defend the distasteful image. This sends a message of white superiority at its best.
Intel marketed an image of six athletic black men bowing with a white man standing before them. The headline reads, “maximize the power of your employees.” Sort of seems like there is a subliminal message in this image. Slaves and master, perhaps? This image is wrong on so many levels.
