Bertram - it has certainly put many in a spin....
Having spent 3 years living in Central Africa I know that skin whitening creams are among the most common 'beauty products' with up to 75% of the female population using them.

The adverts are unashamedly racist.
The actor in the advert must have been happy with it. He's accepted his fee without complaint.
It's been met in the country of origin with apathy and that is all it merits in my book - we know it won't be appearing on out screens.

who knows, there have been others

Where is Qiaobi available? Searched Morrisons, Tesco, Asda...can't find it.
Need to do some cleansing.
We shouldn't take life to serious, I thought it was funny!
So did I, trt.
hope it was a 40 degree wash.
Get over yourself, chill.
See ? It does wash off after all !

No I don't think it qualifies as racist because there is nothing abusive, denigrating, nor unfair going on. It's humour and only works when someone with a darker skin seems to be lightened due to the cleaning product. It may not be everyone's taste in humour, and probably too senstive to air here, but that doesn't make it racist. Merely humour based on race.
