L’Oreal to remove the word “white” and “whitening from product labels.

I was saying that it was stupid to try and say negro was an offensive word as it is black in Spanish. Not sure why you are asking me this question

It is ridiculous. Pure lack of education and not knowing that Spanish word for black is negro. I don’t think it is the English word. But stupid people stupid acts

Crayola have history with this. They removed their flesh coloured crayon which was a peach colour due to the fact that there is different colour flesh. This was in 1962, so it’s not a modern thing. Indian red was removed too. Well name change. Was a pigment from a tree but became synonymous with Am

This is what I said. Absolutely nothing to do with what I think. But seems that it is difficult for you to get. If it is from an area that people as in the logo were used as slaves to harvest the crops contained in it, then of course it could be considered racist to them. Capiche

Torture, in exceptional circumstances

Why wait until the person is in prison before the concept of torture is considered. It would be way more effective during the interrogation and before a trial. But it would be a risk that any admission of guilt was tainted or any evidence illicited would be inadmissible. Not a risk worth taking. If

L’Oreal to remove the word “white” and “whitening from product labels.

As a kid I always wondered why a black guy and not a Chinese guy was on the box. Never thought about it again. I read an article by a black professor on it. Very reasoned and not in any way raising tension type of way. He discussed rice as a product that is sensitive. Also he discussed the use of th

Certain products will always have sensitivity in the US. Rice and Cotton being obvious examples. If uncle bens was a name of a furniture store I don’t think it would be an issue. But I am in agreement that most of the time it is offended for the sake of it

Ok. Being offended for no reason is pointless. Firstly Olam is a Nigerian company. It has a bad history of slavery but is trying to combat it. https://www.olamgroup.com/content/dam/olamgroup/locations/europe/united-kingdom/united-kingdom---pdfs/olam-slavery-and-human-trafficking-statement-2017-2018

I’m in agreement on what you are saying. But honestly Uncle is in itself a slur. It’s the same as calling someone black ‘boy’. Rice plantation in the US were worked by slaves. I am not offended by it. But I am not offended by anything really. But if after consultations and years of considerations
