Did you guys know that Nivea issued an apology for an ad after pulling it down?

Here's part of the quote -

"Diversity and inclusivity are crucial values of NIVEA. We take pride in creating products that promote beauty in all forms. Discrimination of any kind is simply not acceptable to us as a company, as employees, or as individuals."

You think we as Indians can get an apology from the...

If you really want to get 'beneath the skin' of this whole 'fairer is lovelier' issue, then you must see it from every angle where
it is coming from. Digvijay sent me the link below and...well....I don't think I need to say anything, many of you might already know this, having been taught this perhaps in your school too.

Maybe the next steps would be to post pictures from other text books,...

Silly Nanadita trying to teach us that Black is also beautiful. Doesn't she know that we already know that? Why else would we be so accepting of people from the south*?

What's that? She's from Orissa? Can we include that in the southern belt of states?

Cause I really want to believe in my bullshit.

And the King Khan himself asking you-

(Translated)- "Being a man why are you are still using a women's FAIRNESS cream!?"

He's clearly trying to make you a man, becoming whiter in the process is just a side effect.

Um...this one's kinda hard to defend as it does say on the side of the packaging-

"Indian women agree, skin looks visibly fairer: 88%".

But L'Oreal is an international brand, do they show the same racism around the world that they are clearly showing here in India?

It says "2-IN-1 FAIRNESS cream". If you notice her eyes are also lighter than they are in real life. So '2-in-1' must be you can put it in your eyes to change their colour.

It's not so much a 'FAIRNESS' cream as it is a coloured lens for the eyes.

And who wouldn't want grey eyes eh? It's the colour of Delhi in the winter.

What a patriotic cream!

Shame on you to think our celebs would be so irresponsible, there's a good explanation for everything!

This one asks the question "How true is your FAIRNESS?"

And further asks if you just have an "outer WHITE layer" or is your "radiant FAIRNESS from within?"

It even has the words 'Veda' in the packaging and that goes to prove we are originally WHITE from within.

Know your history folks!

The reason the tube reads "WHITE BEAUTY" is because the photoshopping on her skin has made her look white and she's clearly a beauty.

No demeaning of dark skin here either.

WE ARE NOT A RACIST COUNTRY!

I will prove it to you. In the pic below John holds a card with shades from white to dark.
Hey! You can see the promise of darker skin too if you read the card from left to right! He's not telling you to go from right to left! Duh!

Even if the writing on the tube reads "Intensive FAIRNESS moisturiser".

It just means its 'FAIR' to all who use it.

After reading through the comments on my last post, this seems to be the common consensus amongst people-

that while nepotism may get you a film, maybe even a few films, it is talent that will ultimately get you a career.

Thanks to all of you who took the time to comment!

Not entirely related to that post, but extremely relevant for today, is this brilliantly crafted video-
