A “racist” commercial has set the liberal world on fire, and now, snowflakes everywhere are demanding a boycott of the company that makes Dove soap. When you see the “racist” advertisement in its entirety for yourself, it proves just how desperate liberals are to push their ridiculous agenda as they forget to mention one important detail, which they purposely chose to omit.
According to the New York Post, liberals are having a fit over the commercial for Dove soap, which they claim is brazenly racist. The 3-second advertisement appeared on Dove’s US Facebook page on Friday, October 6, 2017, and was quickly met with outrage from social media viewers who claimed that Unilever, the parent company of Dove, was trying to make a statement about white supremacy.
In a perfect world, the soap maker would just tell over-sensitive race hustlers to go pound sand. Unfortunately, we are in the post-common sense age, and Unilever is bending the knee to the god of social justice. The clip was removed and the company apologized but not before it went viral. Take a look at the clip and see if you notice one important detail all the crybaby liberals are leaving out.
In the short clip, a black woman takes off her shirt and reveals a white woman with red hair. This is the part of the commercial that liberals are screaming about. Nevermind that as the clip continues the white woman is seen taking off her shirt to reveal another woman of color. Why are they leaving out that detail in their complaint against Dove? Because it doesn’t fit their agenda.
This soap commercial isn’t racist, but it is an opportunity for the left to attack an evil capitalist soap maker — so, they did. They complain about a black woman morphing into a white woman but no one cares when the white woman morphs into a woman with darker skin. This proves one simple truth about the left; namely, they believe it’s impossible to be racist against white people.
Some complaints that Dove received said that the commercial was reminiscent of early 19th century or early 20th century adverts in which black people were shown scrubbing their skin to become white. That claim couldn’t be further from the truth. This 3-second clip is just a soap commercial, and even if the three women seen in the clip were all standing next to each other, liberals would complain about the order in which they were placed.
In the YouTube clip below, we have one of many commenters who has asked feminists to speak out against the soap company. Notice, there are no complaints about a white woman morphing into a woman of color. In fact, it’s not mentioned at all.
“The short video was intended to convey that Dove body wash is for every woman and be a celebration of diversity, but we got it wrong,” Dove said in a statement. Dove has since removed the advertisement and said in a Twitter post that the commercial had “missed the mark in representing women of color thoughtfully.” It’s too bad that something as simple as a soap commercial is used by the left to push their stupid agenda.
Apparently, Dove’s apology wasn’t well received. The “racist” clip ended up being the focal point of mainstream media outlets and talk shows in the US and Britain over the weekend. I wonder what liberals would accomplish if they actually put this much time and effort into doing something worthwhile and focusing on issues that actually matter? Once again, common sense takes a back seat to diseased liberal ideology.
