Posted on 08/05/2017 6:08:35 AM PDT by rktman
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.

The Ad. Agencies are infested with Radical Feminists, Gays and Leftists. They love to slip thier propaganda into ads. That said, a number of people at P&G signed off on this BS.
As long as they’re showing racism in the 1940’s, you know when Saints FDR and Truman were in office and all the Jim Crow States were under 100% Democrat rule. These days the ad should depict a single white mother living in a mixed neighborhood putting ice on her son’s bruised face after he comes home from his daily beating at school. Part of his “White Privilege” is to pay for sins he’s never committed.
I recall reading that it was found that that rumor was started by someone who wanted to compete with P&G. IIRC, he was sued big time.
Maybe she became bitter when someone shaved off all of her hair.
I read through the comments at those links and have to admit that Ødungo truly was successful after all. His was a spectacularly inept administration but he did manage to to do one thing - he set race relations back decades - possibly a century.
There’s a ton of people walking around with bigassed chips on their shoulders. It’s their problem, not mine. If they try to include me in their psychosis then both of us are going to have a bad day.
But I’ll still go home...
Someone posted a list at 16.
I hate giving up Dawn dish detergent. It really is the best.
Big Chips on their Shoulders!
More and More!
Yep. Every large corporation has one of those nowdays, so social justice is becoming institutionalized.
Target has one that started their idiotic bathroom policy. Worked real good for them.
Let’s do the same to P&G.
Interesting point. Maybe they were right after all.
OMG.... And it has 13 stars
We’re all gonna die!!!
The ad is a great opportunity for parody.
Get conservative black actors for the ‘commercial’ and have them talk about “The dangers of being black in America from Democrats, socialists and leftists.”
“The Democrats tried to pressure me to murder you by having an abortion, such as has murdered 15-and-a-half million other black babies in the last 45 years.”
“The Democrats fought a war against America to keep slavery. Then Democrats fought against letting black people vote. Then the Democrats created segregation to keep black people separate from white people. And then Democrats took away education from black people by corrupting how they are taught to read and write. And then Democrats tried to bring back slavery with welfare and drugs.”
“The Democrats are America’s racists, and yet they call other people racists. Never vote for them, because they truly hate and want to destroy black people.”
Thats what makes a “ boycott” almost impossible
But purchase decisions on brand names at point of sale - case by case
I havent bought Heinz catsup or pickles since the despicable John Kerry ran for president :-)
The light-skinned ones are usually the most hostile, because they’re trying to prove to their brethren that they, too, are authentically black and victims. They get dogged for being yellow and have to lead the charge against whitey to get their street cred.
