Badly-made and silly Chinese detergent advertisement

causes apoplexy amongst the politically-correct.

I merely wondered about the white streaks
on the handsome black man's face,
regretted that he had come out of the machine
transformed into a pale nonentity,
and also wondered why nobody thinks
that the ad is sexist.

Feminists never made a good commercial.
But I like this tension between them and the PC people.

The meta-text of this commercial which has been "outed" by AOL in America is the superiority of the Han people. Racism, sexism? Hardly. The white flecks on the face denote the Caucasian race and its need to be "washed" off as well. For the Chinese, the Middle Kingdom has always been the domain where humans are human through the Chinese culture.

Wasn't it just the remake of a 50's american commercial, anyway?
