    NK Fairbanks had another racially offensive clenser product called Gold Dust with the Gold Dust Twins, “Goldie” and “Dustie”. The original (circa 1892) version of the twins was a standard drawing of two young African-American children cleaning up together in a washtub.

    The in the fashion ad, the word “fashoin” is closer to “heroin,” instead of cocaine.
    Of course, nobody said that models can spell…

    There was one recently in Soho that was pretty huge and showed an African-American woman and it said something along the lines of “the biggest threat to an unborn baby is its mother.” They took it down right away.

    Look around ppl,racism is present almost everywhere. Be it movies,music,politics,B.S Propaganda which are created just for selfish reasons. Racism is a sensitive topic and unfortunately we,the people haven’t gone the right way in dealing with it.

    “Only a Singaporean advertising agency would brag about seven inches…”
    This is incredibly racist and offensive. Shame on you.

    Where’s the AT&T print ad with the gorilla (on the phone) used to represent Africa in the international calling advertisements when the other countries had a human caricature to represent the country?
