    i'm living in thailand right now and have seen the ads and didn't remotely for a second think it was racist. he was dead on about Americans being paranoid about racism.

    man
    yall gotta remember that advertising is used as propaganda and manipulation
    plus this is an american company
    and most of these companies are owned by the same people
    it is a big deal
    every point counts
    and there is racism in Thailand

    yes there is, but mostly not towards Americans. If anything Thais, Burmese, Chinese, Korean, Indian etc are more racist towards each other. Over here if you have a US passport your American, regardless of what skin color you are.

    Don't really look like "blackface to me but.......

    A Thai brand of household mops and dustpans called “Black Man” uses a logo with a smiling black man in a tuxedo and bow tie. One Thai skin whitening cream runs TV commercials that say white-skinned people have better job prospects than those with dark skin. An herbal Thai toothpaste says its dark-colored product “is black, but it’s good.”

    “It’s absolutely ridiculous,” the CEO Nadim Salhani said in a telephone interview. “We’re not allowed to use black to promote our doughnuts? I don’t get it. What’s the big fuss? What if the product was white and I painted someone white, would that be racist?”

    SMH, white people playing the "I don't understand what's the problem" role.

    People have been painting their skin for thousands of years b.

    Black is merely a commonly available color that can be used for such tasks.

    I don't consider this black face after watching the ad. I was expecting some Mr Popo shit. So if they covered the model in chocolate would that also be offensive? The ad fits the product perfectly.
