WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS WITH THE PRODUCT ??

THE FACT THAT YOU DO NOT LIKE A PARTICULAR PRODUCT DOES NOT MEAN OTHERS SHOULD NOT LIKE IT.


THE PRODUCT IS IN THE MARKET, AND YOUR MONEY IS IN YOUR POCKET, WHY ALL THESE HATE Campaigns

IF THERE IS NO DEMAND FOR ANY PARTICULAR WESTERN PRODUCT, THERE WILL BE NO SUPPLY OF IT.

COMING HERE TO TELL OUR FELLOW AFRICANS WHAT TO DO IS BEING DICTATORIAL .



USE YOUR TIME POSITIVELY

All these racists adverts, are they trying to say that's it's a bleaching cream? If it is then there is nothing wrong with the advert. If it's not then they tried it.

Business only care about meeting a demand, satisfying customers and making profit. Ethical and moral reasons usually are not a criteria in the determination of profit making as far it’s legal.

If I go to Sweden and advertise cream for darker skin, such product will die a natural death since there is not a demand for it. The focus should be on low self-esteemed Africans who desperately wants to bleach their skin.

Although, I’ll be glad if the advert is taken down

Wait, so cos Nivea decides to meet a demand, it's now an offense? First talk to those dark skinned African women and men who like to lighten their skin.

Every company is entitled to their products and it's up to us to either patronize or not. I'm against bleaching... But this guy should take his fight to the right quarters.

If no one buys the product, it wont sell. If it doesn't sell, it dies a natural death. So leave Nivea alone.

NIGERIANS, ESPECIALLY, HAVE BEEN SHOWCASING THEIR INFERIORITY COMPLEX WITH THEIR INSATIABLE AND SOMETIMES DANGEROUS QUEST FOR FAIR SKIN BY OVER 70PERCENT OF THEIR MEN AND WOMEN USING BLEACHING PRODUCTS, LIKE ACTRESSES, EVEN THEIR HUSBANDS A LA OMOTOLA HUSBAND, TRADITIONAL RULERS LIKE THE ALAAFIN AND EVEN SO CALLED CELEBRITIES AND ROLE MODELS

YOU CANNOT BLAME NIVEA FOR TAPPING INTO THE PHYSICAL INSECURITIES OF DUMB AFRICANS AND OTHER RACES WHO TREASURE LIGHTER SKIN OVER THEIR GOD GIVEN NATURAL COMPLEXION.

Please stop misinterpreting the dove advert. People just took a snippet and made it into a racial issue when it was not and even the Nigerian model who was featured confirmed same. If you watch the whole advert it was a black lady changed to a white lady who changed into an Asian lady and the point was the product could be used by women of all races but social justice warriors took a snippet of the black lady to white and painted it as it means black skin isn’t good and should change to white.

If it meant black skin wasn’t good then why haven’t white women protested that it means Asian skin is better?

In this situation yes advertising skin bleaching products isn’t ideal but if we stopped buying them and bleaching then they will not target us. To them it’s a target market, some people in that are so insecure they will rather bleach their skin hence it’s a market. If I was a marketing lead for a bleaching product I will target the market that likes to bleach, simple.

Some white women like to tan so much and darken their skin that they look like an orange Donald Trump and guess what, tanning salons and products target them. That is capitalism not racism.

Not everything is racism or discrimination.

You can't actually blame them when Africans most especially Nigerians are seriously bleaching their skins with their locally made creams and soaps. Nivea is just taking the opportunity to make money off them.

The lady in question is a dark lady with inferiority complex. It takes a lot to identify such people. grin

First and foremost, Africans are blacks and our skin tone are in different shades. This advert is for fairer skin toned ladies, and if you're black and have a problem with that simply means you're intimated by the fairer skin toned ladies, so the ranting over the cream billboard. She has serious issues!.

Tolerance is one virtue all small-minded people commonly lack. It's unfortunate that Africa breeds more small-minded people than the rest of the continents of the world.
