Dove Apologizes AGAIN for Another Racially Insensitive Ad

“How many times are you gonna apologize about the same thing?” SING KELLY!

Dove once again shows us not once but twice that they don’t have black women anywhere in the board or editing room to help them make better decisions on how to show diversity. Dove decided to run an add on Facebook that has now been removed. Thankfully, makeup artist Naomi Leann Blake shared the images on her Facebook page before they disappeared.

The image shows a black woman taking off a brown t-shirt and transforms to a white woman with a white shirt on. You can’t make this up.

So I guess they thought they were trying to give us “It’s Black It’s WHITE!” but failed… and gave us…

Instead, the ad was seen as a dirty black woman and after washing herself with some soap she is now a clean white woman. What’s cleaner than clean a pure white woman? Remember Nivea’s ad?

There seems to be a pattern of cleanliness being associated with whiteness and a whole lot of other things. The only way to fix it hiring women of color to tell you “NO!” or “HELL NO”. It’s that simple no need for group studies, just fix it.

Dove, of course, issued a statement apologizing for the ad offending those.

This apology would be nice if it wasn’t the second or umpteenth time that something like this has happened.

See…

The ad eventually finished with a middle eastern woman. I honestly couldn’t tell if she was white or not, but hey.

I’m not sure what to do with the 3 boxes of Dove soap I have in my cabinet right now.

 

What do you think of the ad? Did you see any racial undertones?

Black Sister Drags Careless White Woman for Leaving Her Kids in a Hot Car [VIDEO]

Published

After hearing so many stories of white people calling the police on Black people for simply existing this summer this story will have screaming. Memphis folks have been known to jump gates but they also roast the entire sh*t out of you.

A white woman left her kids in the car as she went into a retail store to apparently look for an outfit as the woman recording the video stated when she finally saw her. She walked up to the car and saw what seemed to be 3 kids in the car and one looked as if they were a couple of months old. She asked the kids “Where y’all momma at?” and they told her she was in the store.

“Why you leave your kids in the car with yo dumb ass?!”

Homegirl dragged her ass so bad that she walked back in the car and left before she had a chance to call the police. Children’s bodies heat up much faster than adults’ do, and on average, 37 children die from being left in hot cars each year, according to the National Safety Council. So this woman probably just saved these kids lives. Take a look.

 

 

“THEM HOT ASS BALLONS!”

 

 

Can someone find this woman? Please!

 

What would you have done?

Our favorite Atlanta housewife, Porsha Williams, is expecting her first child after suffering from a miscarriage six years ago.

Williams told People Magazine,  that once she heard the news she was excited, yet fearful. Fearful because the reason she lost the first baby due to suffering from fibroids and having to have a myomectomy. The thirty-seven year old is leaning on her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley, for support.

Williams exclaims, “The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me — it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me — and it’s something we’ve both always wanted … It’s like a dream come true.” While the pregnancy is a surprise for the both of them, Williams says that it has brought them closer together and they’ve become a family overnight.

Hopefully we get to witness Williams’ pregnancy journey on the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

We wish Porsha a successful pregnancy here at King of Reads.
