    The black model even said it wasn't racist and described it as a PC witch hunt.

    Her explanation doesn't weigh much.

    A picture is worth a thousand worth and A video is worth a thousand pictures.

    It went black-white-Asian. So if it was racist against blacks, then it was also racist against whites.

    It might be but then the makers of the ad are white themselves.
    You know I have nothing against the whites. My argument is that all the races are racist in one way or another, some do it out of ignorance and other do it intentionally. So we can't just single out Chinese.

    (a) How do you know that for sure? Are you making the assumption that no black person could ever be an ad maker? That sounds more racist to me.

    (b) If so, wouldn't it be illogical for a white ad maker to racially discriminate against themselves in favour of Asians?

    (c) If they'd put the white person first, then people would complain they were putting whites before blacks.

    The dove advert does not remotely compare to stuffing a black person in a washing machine and having them come out Chinese.

    I mean the Unilever is a Dutch-British company and they approved this advert.

    Degree of racism doesn't change the fact.

    Yes but Unilever employs lots of black and Asian people, so there's no way of knowing who made or approved this ad.

    There is no racism. I don't feel racially offended that a white person took off their shirt and turned Asian, so why should a black person feel offended that a black person took off their shirt and turned white? None of the races were portrayed as dirty either. I really don't get it.

    This explains it fully. A small handful of people found it racist and only posted a screenshot showing black-to-white, people rushed in to condemn Dove and invested so much energy into the condemnation that they couldn't back-pedal after seeing the full ad and admit that they were wrong.

    Nothing wrong with that. Rich and superpower India back in the day was racist from start of Vedic civilization or indus civilization when bunch of south iranids had evsaved natives of nW india.
