Skip to comments.Vaseline gets woke and creates a Black Lives Matter ad

Vaseline has come a long way from the oil fields. Like all modern companies, its management hires are almost certainly required to have a college degree. And unless that college degree comes from Hillsdale, another virtual certainty is that the college requirement means that Vaseline's management is steeped in leftism.
We've certainly seen this pattern with corporations instantly embracing the Marxist-inspired Black Lives Matter movement. Leftists also believe ridiculous theories such as the dishonest 1619 Project and the incredibly racist theory called "Critical Race Theory."
With those people in charge and reporting to a Dutch-British company that has no inherent love for America you shouldn't be surprised that Vaseline has just produced one of the most aggressively racist ads ever. These 30 seconds are steeped in Critical Race Theory; BLM America-hatred; the 1619 Project; and, implicitly, anti-white racism all in the name of "equity in skincare." (Hat tip: Moonbattery.)
I never advocate formal boycotts. To me, boycotts are too often a leftist bullying strategy. However, speaking for myself, having seen that ad, I can't imagine ever again buying a Vaseline or Chesebrough Ponds product. This hate-filled ad is unforgivable.

Seems appropriate, given the number in corporate America who have bent over for BLM (and the ChiComs).
Vaseline... youre going to need this lube to take our communist totalitarian message up your butt.
Ask these groups if they sided with the Black Panthers and if not why not and do they regret their support/non-support for the Black Panthers?
Then show them the historical record of the racist Maoist bank robbing terrorists who urged kids to KILL their parents.
Accidentally saw that commercial while channel surfing.
It's enough to turn your stomach ! Decisive and all aggressively BLM crap !
It's Dutch based ,.. enough said !
There are Vaseline ads?
Never, ever confuse the Vaseline with Vick’s Vap-O-Rub.................Ever....................
No wonder my ancestors left there in 1630ish.
Uh, did we have an incident? LOL! And here I thought mentholatum was soothing.
Unilever is the parent company. There are many other competing companies out there.
I saw the ad. Thanks for posting
“Hello African Americans! Your good friends at Unilever here. Let us ask you a question: Do you hate racism? You do?! Well, if you hate racism, then you’re going to love our Vaseline brand of petroleum jelly-based products. Rub it into the string suspending your hummingbird feeder and you’ll find that meddlesome ants are a thing of the past! Rub it on your poor dog’s chafed foot pads! And for every jar of Vaseline brand of petroleum jelly-based products you buy, we promise to continue offering superlative quality Vaseline brand of petroleum jelly-based products. Keep fighting the power!”
No problemo. Of course if we dig far enough, they all seemed to be intertwined.
AND-—Do NOT confuse Vick’s with ICY HOT....
AND-Do NOT confuse Ben Gay with Preparation H....................
