Racism is a mofo…

Racist ads have been around since advertising has been around. And there have probably been millions of racist and sexist ads during that time. Here are 10 that particularly disgust us.

Happy Black History Month folks…and don’t forget that the ads out there will still try to undermine us.

fairy soap

Fairy Soap – See, because being Black = being dirty. Screw these clowns.


Chlorinol – Sigh…it’ll just get worse.


Nivea – This ad, depicting an afro as “uncivilized” just came out last year! SMH

van heusen

Van Heusen – We bet you’re wearing a pair right now.


Some horrible tool shed company that we hope blows up and dies


Dove – Notice how they get “cleaner” as they get from Black to White? Sigh. We see the subliminals.

husband beating wife

Chase and Sandborn Coffee – Nothing racist here…just couldn’t ignore the sexism. Giving his wife a spanking? For real?

cream of wheat

Cream of Wheat – The Cream of Wheat guy is one of the most racist ad men of all time.


Benneton – Oh, okay. Little devil Black baby?
