WASHINGTON A new video ad portraying America as a racist society, produced by consumer product giant Procter & Gamble, is being met with fierce criticism.
The ad, titled The Talk, depicts scenes of black mothers warning their children about the dangers of being black in America, how the system is stacked against them and why they should fear police.
Building on the companys decade-old My Black is Beautiful campaign, the commercial begins with a black girl, from what appears to be the 1940s era, holding a white doll telling her mother that a woman at the store told her she was pretty for a black girl.
That is not a compliment, the mother responds. You are beautiful, period. OK?
The next scene depicts a young black boy running away from a group of white boys, which transitions into a mothers explaining to her son why there is nothing he can do to stop whites from calling him the N-word.
There are some people who think you dont deserve the same privileges just because of what you look like, another mother tells her son. Its not fair. Its not.

What does this have to do with selling soap?
Call them, tell them what you think and your future purchasing intentions.
Lol. If I were black, I’d be a billionaire by now.

Are these racist bastards still selling WHITE soap and WHITE soap powder?
Thanks, we were looking for the number.
LOL! Yeah, Wasn’t there something about the number of stars too?
Damn TYPO!!!! (800) 692-0132
It is agitprop.
By now, it is obvious that all media is political, especially advertising.
WTH? The “9” is like on the opposite end of the chain. LOL! Early, coffee. I get it.
If shown on SNL as a parody, they might explain that not even P/G makes soap that can remove the dark, black dirt from garments, sheets, teddy bears, or sock monkeys. Other than that = nothing. IIRC, P/G, years ago, at one time was rumored to be turning Satanic in the products sold. How that was so, escapes me but there was a turmoil and words expressed between advertisers, consumers, and corp management.
Selling social justice - not buying
Selling cleaning products- not buying P&G where I have any other choice
P&G should select a country that aligns more closely with their “corporate values,” re-locate there, and refuse to make their wares available to the racist United States.
Of course, they’d be out of business in less than a year.

Isn’t an inverted 666 actually 999, the British equivalent of 911?
