    There are some examples in the OP article.

    Why does it seem that nobody even looks at links in posts before responding to them!?!

    Speculate much?
    Has she complained, or do you feel the need to complain for her, as she doesn't understand her victimization?

    You were the one who was speculating. You said "Apparently the black woman who participated in the commercial wasn't offended by this supposed racism.
    But she's probably grateful that you were offended on her behalf when she was too stupid to realize the racism inflicted on her.
    You know, those black people, too stupid to understand racism when they're victims of it."
    As far as I can see, not one of your three sentences is supported by any objective facts - just your prejudices.

    I'm not complaining for her or for anyone. Just pointing out that what you have written is not based on anything that is currently known about this story. You made it up.

    lmfao I had not seen these ads until now.

    Dove needs to IMMEDIATELY fire the entire marketing department. How the hell did they let this slip through?

    LMFAO.... gods below.

    Yup, that was my reaction too. That ad doesn't fit into the definition of "racist".

    By the way, take pity on me today. Did you see the Giants' stellar 0-5 record, and the terrible injury Beckham suffered? They lost all 4 WRs in one game. They may as well just give their starters the rest of the season off, play their bench warmers, and vie with Cleveland for the number one draft pick at this point.

    The game wasn't televised in my area, but I did hear about the Beckham injury. All 4 WRs? It looks like the Giants will be getting a pretty good draft pick next year.

    A top draft pick is about the only good thing that may come out of this season. They can draft Eli's replacement. I'd also like to see them draft McAdoo right out of his coaching job.

    Beckham's injury was ghastly. As soon as it happened I knew it was devastating.

    Perhaps you should go back and read what the poster said that you are responding to because you obviously don't get it.

    Ad is great for the Asian market. China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam etc...They would all love it. They are fanatics about whitness. Are you going to call all Asians racists for wanting to have white skin?

    I'm glad I didn't see it. Was it like Joe Thiesman's injury?

    LMAO who in the actual hell at Dove thought that would be a good idea for a soap ad.

    I highly doubt it was intentional, I really don't think it was. But this is one of the few things I've seen in a while that literally made me laugh out loud.

    Wat? OK, that's just too weird.

    I hope they learn from this, and invent a soap that washes away leftism.

    It was worse!! (But only because it impacted the Redskins and not the Giants haha).

    It was nasty. People's ankles just aren't intended to bend that way. And Odell was having a pretty good game yesterday. He got a nice TD and some good catches. But he's done now, certainly for the season. Even if he can come back, he shouldn't. Like I said, they need to go for the #1 draft pick. Sorry, Cleveland and Chargers fans!

    At least the effing Rangers won last night. They beat Montreal. Nothing makes me smile as much as watching Montreal get beat.

    For me it's the Islanders and Flyers. Worst fans in sports.

    All Philly sports fans are maniacal. Try wearing a Giants Jersey to an Eagles game. They'll tear it off your back and beat you up.

    Islanders suck. Remember "Potvin sucks!"? Those were the good old days.

    I'm not making the claims of racism. Maybe you can back your **** up by,... well perhaps,.... let's say,... maybe, ...........her voicing complaints of racist victimization.
    Oh well, I'm sure she appreciates your self aggrandization any way

    I guess if you go looking for everything to be racist, then it would appear that way.

    Looking at the ad, I don't think that was ever their intent.

    I would not jump to that conclusion so fast, they may have been trying to be inclusive of all races, and just not saw what others could see, heck there could even be black people working on this too, we just do not know, obviously it looks bad, but that doesn't mean there was a racist intent behind it

    could just mean they saw all the actors as equals and never even thought about race for all we know
