Yet apparently there was an equally racist white to black version released in Italy.

This ad apparently is from 1783, just about the year the Chinese ad belongs-

Supposed to be a direct rip-off of '90s Italian detergent commercial which goes the exact opposite way.

Italian woman puts weedy Italian bloke into washer and out comes muscle bound black dude.

Except this ad replaces a black workman with a Metro-sexual toy boy.



In the case of this ad it should be noted that Chinese industry and commerce has found willing partners in corrupt African leaders to exploit African workers and resources.

Plus la change, plus c'est meme chose.

To an extent it depends on the beholder

Though released unqualified and for gen pop...then it's probably racist

The above is independent of the fact that it's darn funnee

If you put something white into the washing machine and it came out black then you would have a real problem.:D

Not funny in the slightest.


I never thought I'd say this, but your childish look at me threads on matters sexual may not be your most disturbing characteristic after all.

From the comment section on Youtube:

here is a summary of the comment section:You got black people saying the ad is racist, you got white people saying the ad is not racist its just offensive, you got SJWs saying Chinese people can't be racist. Then you got white and black supremisists having a race war to see who's more racist.
It's not an entirely inaccurate summery of the comments.

Whatever about offensive, it is racist, but is also classist (the latter being a prejudice that is widespread, but rarely commented on).

I'm surprised someone hasn't put an Orangeman in and have him come out green ! Or, in the interest of the new dispensation, the opposite.
