Thai Donut company is criticised for ‘racist’ advert depicting ‘blacked up’ model

Thais have little respect for Western hysterias of political correctness

Dunkin’ Donuts have been called ‘bizarre and racist’ after using an advert featuring a ‘blacked up’ model.  The advert was released in Thailand earlier this year to promote their new charcoal doughnut.

But Human Rights Watch have criticised the move, saying that American audiences would have been outraged at the advert.

 A female model with dark skin and bright pink lips is used in both television commercials and posters.  She holds the chocolate doughnut with the slogan ‘Break every rule of deliciousness.’


I wonder if dark chocolate donuts are racist?  Could they be seen as cannibalizing Africans?  What about dark chocolate itself?  Should it be called "high cocoa chocolate"?

I see. If it's racist to black Americans it's racist no matter where it happens. Because everyone cares what black Americans think - even nations that are probably 0.001% black. Right? Bullsh!t.

Americans continue to wallow in their racist-obsessed sewer, yet still criticize Europe and Britain for relatively new ethnic problems!
