Just recently Dove soap published a Facebook ad. The ad was quickly removed when people began to complain of the obvious racism. It was a picture of a black woman lifting her shirt up and off and revealing herself to be a white woman.
What’s wrong with that? Well maybe if it was a commercial about a movie and a woman with shape shifting powers, nothing. But if your commercial is implying that you’re dirty when you’re black and clean when white and you’re selling soap, then your brand is racist.
So you might be thinking; “Well maybe this is a honest mistake?”. It’s possible, I mean everything ain’t racist like some of us blacks seem to believe, but if it quacks like a duck then… Dove is well known for this type of advertisement, in recent years they had another run in with questionable racist advertisement:
Yeah, ain’t no mistake. Dove is racist. Thoughts?
Cardi B At The Grammy’s
Break out reality star Cardi B is ready for the Grammy’s!! Whatever, she puts her hands on, its a hit, she’s got the magic touch and this is her year!
The former stripper and reality star was asked what was she most looking forward to at the Grammy’s? Cardi answered, “Me, hopefully winning an award. Like what else? Like that’s all I think about to be honest.” Sounds just like a Cardi B answer to me, she holds nothing back, we love her no nonsense style, her craziness and her ability to just be real. She is also excited for her man’s group Migo’s who are also nominated.
Cardi B and Bruno Mars are expected to perform there breakout song, “Finesse,” tonight on the Grammy’s! I so love this song, it takes you back to the 90’s on the “In Living Color,” stage with her and Bruno Mars. What I love most about this song, Cardi is having so much fun, the smile on her face says it all and the connection she has with Bruno in this song is amazing, they both deserve to win!!
