Chinese detergent commercial deemed racist.

This Chinese detergent commercial is getting quite a bit of exposure on the Internet for its racist overtones.

The funny thing about this commercial is when the black guys turns into a Chinese guy because of this "detergent", one body part should shrink too.

That BBC disappears. BBC becomes small Chinese dick.

The Chinese girl is pretty though.

Might be a copy of this commercial. If the Chinese one is regarded as racist, this one would be too.

Yes, they are both racist. Racist ads like these date back hundreds of years.





Some cultures are quite far behind others though in these regards

Gululu, you gotta be kidding me. You used a racist product called Darkie toothpaste?

Calling a black person Darkie, even a toothpaste brand name, is certainly racist.

It doesn't matter what context, Western or Eastern or whatever. Calling a black person with such a degrading name for a toothpaste is disgusting!

Racism in the 21st century may be in a different form compared to the 19th century or earlier periods of humanity's history but it still exists in every country. Even China.

I scold my parents every time they call black people "black ghosts" in Cantonese. That's racist!

looks like the marketing co behind the commercial earned their money...

probably met the #of viral shares in a matter of hours

like Trump, any publicity is good publicity.

That other commercial above where the white guy turned black, it had almost zero media coverage. Why is this new commercial getting so much attention?

Its racist if you think its racist, what if it was a white guy turning black/asian/brown.. would you guys still think its as racist?

I thought the commercial was quite progressive by China standards, allowing a black man into the house at all is a big deal there isn't it?

The racism in the Chinese add is effectively saying black ppl are dirty (not desirable), the Italian one, whilst still racist is suggesting "colored" are better - calling people of African heritage colored is racist (or at least very very non P.C.).

Which is worse? The connotations associated with the Chinese add are worse, as they're indicating a people are worse than another.

Both racist, one is more offensive

young Africans are joining china's shrinking manual labour force. black men working as delivery assemblers for suning.com in guangzhou, so you can see the chinese society is very accommodating to blacks. or else they wouldn't even apply for such roles
