Model in 'racist' Dove ad speaks out

Insurance costs for thousands of Australians are likely to double or even triple within decades. By Sunday morning, Dove's Facebook and Twitter pages were filled with a litany of backlash from consumers. The ad pictured the women turning into each other upon pulling off their t-shirts. Hygiene brand Dove ran a Facebook ad that shows a black woman taking off her t-shirt and magically turning into a white woman after using Dove bodywash. It's been wonderful to witness this evolution in diversity representation, and it's been embraced by much of society. Calling Dove racist over this is a little farfetched, but the idea of making an ad where black woman turns into a white woman should have raised flags. Goodstuph's film for Dove Singapore urges those with chronic skin conditions to 'make peace with their skin'.

It's there a missing tag line that's supposed to tie it together? Tired of getting harassed by the police? Because, you know, black women are dirty. Many Facebook and Twitter users said the clip signalled white people were cleaner or more beautiful than black people and likened it to 19th century soap adverts that showed black people scrubbing themselves to become white. We deeply regret the offense it caused.
You may change your settings at any time but this may impact on the functionality of the site. Only a non-person-of-colour would rationalise Dove's actions that way. Even if we assumed there was no racist intent, what the fuck is it supposed to even mean? We deeply regret the offense it caused. For too many years, people of colour, especially those living in countries where they're a minority, have put up with these sorts of messages; that the white appearance and lifestyle is the one to aspire to.
