    I just watched the full ad. It's not just a black woman changing into a white woman :jj: if you watch the full thing it was even more women and it kept changing.

    They just cut out the part where the white women then changes into a Latino woman and Asian. Total fake news :jj:

    IMO, it isn't racist, but it is tone deaf and short sighted.

    Dove has, on multiple occasions, had black women "transform" into white women after being washed. As though being black is "dirty."

    Seems like dumb marketing to me :dontknow:

    Dove was just trying to appeal to all races.
