‘Sick sick sick’ racist Procter & Gamble ad crosses every line! If you are white, brace yourself before watching

This might be the most racist commercial any company has ever produced.


A more than two-minute video produced by Procter & Gamble, the company that manufactures Cascade, Febreze, Mr. Clean, Tide, Swiffer, Downy and a plethora of products, shows various scenes of black parents talking with their children about racism.

The ad, titled “The Talk,” shows scenes of black parents, spanning generations, telling their kids about how the system is stacked against them, how racist white people are and teaching them to fear the police.

One of the scenes shows a black mother, who appears to be from the 1940s or 1950s, holding a white doll and telling her mother that a woman at the store told her she was pretty for a black girl.

“That is not a compliment,” the mother said. “You are beautiful, period. OK?”

In the next scene a mother talks to her son, presumably about the N word, a word uttered by more black musicians than white people these days.

“It’s an ugly nasty word and you are gonna hear it. Nothing I can do about that,” she said.

A subsequent scene shows a mother during a bygone era telling her daughter headed to camp that she can do anything “they” can do.

“The difference is you gotta work twice as hard and be twice as smart,” she said.

In another scene a mother from current times tells her daughter what to do “when you get pulled over,” as if it is guaranteed to happen.

When the daughter explains that she is a good driver, the mother reinforces negative stereotypes of police officers by telling her “This is not about you getting a ticket. This is about you not coming home.”

The ad is part of Procter & Gamble’s “My Black Is Beautiful” campaign for which it promoted the hashtag “#TalkAboutBias” on social media.

“These real-life conversations about conscious and unconscious bias are too common in homes across the country and weigh heavily on parents and children of many different backgrounds. We take seriously the opportunity to spark dialogue on what we all can do to put an end to the harmful effects of bias, and motivate true change,” the company’s director of global company communications Damon Jones said in a statement.

If the goal was to get social media to talk about this ad then it succeeded, but not entirely in the way the company wanted.

Black conservative Anthony Brian Logan called the ad “overly dramatic” and pointed out that the ad serves a second purpose of devaluing the need for a “nuclear family” as only one scene showed a father present.

Logan said the ad is unrealistic and noted that he never had a talk like that with any member of his family.

“The only kind of talk I got was ‘you need to do right. You need to do the best things you got to be doing,’” he said. “It was all about personal accountability, personal responsibility. It was not about ‘white people have this, white people have that.’”


“This whole commercial from Procter & Gamble – is nothing more than a marketing ploy to try to get black women on the Internet — to buy their products,” he said. “It’s a marketing campaign to get people to come purchase things. It’s nothing else. It’s not some kind of PSA. It’s not an altruistic thing. It’s all about money and that’s it.”

    We’ve all seen these stats before, but there is something wrong with our social system.
    Approx. 75% of minorities are born with out a providing, live in father. They are raised without discipline and respect for authority. The cost of welfare and what it’s producing is going to destroy America.
    2013. F B I crime statistics involving 15 year old to 34year old Black males.
    Blacks males committed 57.3 % of all Robbery.
    Blacks males committed 50.8 % of all murders.
    Blacks committed 38.8 % of all aggravated assaults.
    Blacks committed 34.1 % of all forcible rapes.
    This group is only 3 % of the total U S population.
    Only 16% of Baltimore teenagers have been raised with married parents
    Meaning 84% of Baltimore teenagers have not been raised with married parents.
    72% of Black children are born illegitimate.
    The incarceration rate in state or federal prison or jail
    for white men was 736 per 100,000,
    for black men 4,789 per 100,000,

      To be fair, these 2013 statistics predate the “Ferguson Effect” where the cops have backed off protecting hostile black communities. The murder rate has spiked in a number of disproportionately black cities — starting with Chicago.

      I believe your statistics are opportunistic. Oh, and there are more whites on welfare than any other “group”. And the cost of fraud in the welfare system in some states is more or equal to the cost of the program in that state. Mostly committed by upper-income families.

      Gigene, another statistic that you leave out is that more Federal aid goes to white people in red states than to African Americans in big cities. The difference is thet the whites who collect aid feel that they are entitled to it because they want to work, but there are no jobs. They then believe that blacks are just lazy and don’t want to work. The crime statistics are also wrong. They are for convictions, and blacks are disproportionately arrested. So, there are probably more white and other race criminals who just haven’t been arrested for crimes the they have committed. You are a disgusting racist, who has cherry picked statistics to support your hate. I am white, and am embarrassed by people like you.

      Also, your comment is filled with generalizations, judgment and just plain racist propaganda. Raised without discipling and respect for authority – who made you the morality police? I actually worked in the criminal justice system in the city of Chicago, and you are so wrong, and so self-righteous in your hate. Some of these statistics exist because of racists like you. Others are simply not really true. Hope this comment helps you feel superior, you judgmental witch!

      All of these stats a just garbage. Lol More whites on welfare than anyone else in this country… You must have gotten these from white supremacist website. You and all you other people that hate anything positive towards black people know this and you find the most silly ways to prove it. Let me ask.. How many white people are targeted for all crimes? How many go to jail for running a stop sign? How may white kids are arrested and give 7-10 years with not priors for misdemeanor crimes? How many white people are jailed for not using a signal light? How many white people blame the crimes they do on black people and black people are arrested and convicted with no evidence against them. You say all these things towards black people and you know they are not true. You are a easy person to judge because you re-post false crap. But I understand, you only mean to speak to people that are easily fooled, and not mentally strong and most are full of hate. So continue on to your dim witted audience.

      ALso, nitwit…. born out of wedlock does not automatically born without a father present, born without a father in the home.. it simply means out of wedlock. Consider it different from marrying someone who is already pregnant like you oft times do, many case3s, you knowingly arent the father, just to claim you were married when the baby is born.. Than you hate the wife, hate the child and blow their brains out because for a stripper..

      Using population percentages is a RACIST tactic used by small minded bigots to deflect from the FACT that white people DESTROY more lives in this country than all ethnicities combined. That same FBI source you cited reveals that white people committed 6,214,197 total crimes and blacks committed 2,549,655. Whites RAPED 8,946 women…more than double the 4,229 by blacks. White people committed 391,467 violent crimes vs blacks 228,782.

      HARD NUMBERS don’t lie. Percentages dont mean shit when you count the REAL impact on the sheer number of american families DESTROYED by crime, white people hold the trophy for most number of atrocities.

      What your “stats” failed to mention is:

      1. Criminal statistics reflect those who are found guilty of a crime, not whether or not they actually committed it. And, as we’ve all seen (or should have seen, if we’re getting our information from a source that isn’t rabidly biased), there is no shortage of people serving long sentences for violent crime, who are found to be innocent of that crime when additional evidence surface. So part of the problem is our system’s own zeal to catch a (perceived) perpetrator and lock him up, so we can then say the case is closed and justice was served.

      2. Your “stats” don’t reflect another truism: that people of color often receive harsher penalties than white people for the same crime. That’s one reason there are a disproportionate number of nonwhite inmates.

      3. The FBI statistics reflect who was ARRESTED for a crime, not who actually committed it. The fact that you don’t seem to realize this suggests that you got your statistics (and their interpretation) from a biased source, with a racist ax to grind. I notice the white supremacist American Renaissance group, for example, “interpreted” data from the FBI page, with their own inimitable racist spin on it. Smart people don’t depend on groups like this to tell them what the FBI says. They go directly to the FBI website.

      4. Yes, a disproportionate percentage of young black men are arrested for violent crime. One could also say, with perfect truth, that a large majority of violent crime is committed by men, period. Does that mean we should all regard men as subhuman?

      5. Anyone can throw around data (especially doctored data). The question is, what are you trying to say with that data, and what is your proposed solution? It sounds to me as if you’re trying to say that you think black men ARE subhuman, because you made no effort to examine contributing factors like poverty, poor schools, dangerous neighborhoods, lack of jobs, and lack of supervision due to parents working 2 or more jobs. Bashing “welfare” is pointless, unless you have evidence that the people using it all or mostly have access to good jobs, with good pay and family-friendly hours and affordable child care, health care and transportation. Without one or more of these things, a family is inevitably going to do badly. And, when a family is doing badly, and can’t see ANY way out of the dilemma without committing crimes (minor and otherwise), then we need to look at what opportunities are available to them, and (if there are such opportunities) why they’re not profiting from them.

      Bashing a whole demographic group on the grounds of stereotypes you heard about on AM talk radio is the lazy mind’s way of dealing with a social problem. The question is, what is YOUR cost-effective suggestion for dealing with it? (NOTE: “Punish them for being poor and lacking a social support system” is not a solution.)

      The stats you use PROVE institutional his, not the other way around. 96% of police apps were against Blacked, in Ferguson, Mo, before Mike Brown. Of the <5% of White stos, they produced an AVERAGE of 13% MORE contraband. I get it. You're the Alt-White, i mean Right, so i should expect the racism to is fourth. But your won't. You're on the wrong side of history. In a nation that was supposed to be founded on liberty and freedom, it's only civil war was to keep people enslaved. The surgery pulls a Black Conservative Unicorn from his bun, and that is enough cooking for this crowd. I am a decorated Marine Veteran, honorably discharged. And I've had "The Talk," and, yes, that's what WE call it, with all for of my children. I've been married twice. Most of my adult life, in fact. To punch Blacked in the gave, with you lack of what, does a lack of honesty, or integrity. You don't have to starve to know that somewhere a lot of people are starving. You'll never experience racism, in your lives. But i assure you it exists. It lives in this article. The commercial should have provided you with a place of understanding about what millions of your fellow Americans endure, daily. Instead you convince yourselves, it can't be true (another racist convention, is that blacks lie like rugs). We do
      is real. It hurts. I was five, the first time i was called a n****r, ever, by a white woman, for no reason. So keep trying to beat back time to a place where we just let the system incarcerate is Hilary, which is where your stats come from.a time when good N's knew their place. We're EVERYWHERE. We marry EVERYONE. We love whom www choose, and that choose us. We're just tired of White telling is to wait until we've earned their respect, before the freedoms of the U.S. Constitution apply, to us. Thank you. Good day.

      Research tells us there is much more behind these statistics than your post suggests. The legacy of slavery in this country has left the cards stacked against black and brown people – in all institutions in our society and in testimony from the vast majority of black and brown people in America. Why do you imagine that your understanding of the black experience in america is more accurate than actual spoken experience AND research?

      My parents had those talks with me and I was forced to teach my son these same truths to keep him safe. Knowledge is power. But at no time do you hear these parents say that violence against police or white people is okay.

      They are born without a providing father because the war on drugs put all their fathers in for-profit jails for the same crimes that white people get off for with a slap on the hand. a gram of marijauna gets a black man in the ghetto 20 years, but a white stanford swimmer gets acquitted of rape. You are the very worst of Americans. And for all of your “stats” I can show you how white run corporations have imprisoned, killed, marignalized, raped, stolen, and evaded responsibility for far bigger crimes. You are blind and you are ignorant and you are a fucking waste of humanity.

      So what are you saying? Black people deserve to be treated like second class citizens? Not all black people are criminals. Not all black people come from single parent homes. Not all black men are in jail. Not all black people live in Baltimore. Your false statistics prove who the true racists are. Any black parent that says they have never had at least one of these conversations with their children is lying. So now I have a better understanding what an American Conservative is. Conservatives are very much like the Pharisees and Sadducees of the Bible. You have a form of godliness but truly deny the power thereof.

      Do people not remember what Martin Luther King said? “If we must be judged then let it be on the content of my character rather than the color of my skin!” Since there is only one race, the human race, the differences are ethnicity. The one thing that most elitists want is division among the people, so they spend millions on pointing out our “differences” in order to make it difficult to stand as a nation. We need to see that the differences are what make each of us unique otherwise we’d all be exactly the same. We cannot let the elitists/eugenicists make our country into what they want, we must stand as a unified people that says enough is enough and work for the common good of ALL PEOPLES! Let us MAKE AMERICA BETTER THAN IT EVER HAS BEEN!

      So……How does a cop know if an individual black kid is in the 25% of kids who do have a father in the home? Or that he is in the 42.7% who don’t commit robbery? He doesn’t know this, yet he assumes the worst and treats as such. The point of the ad is to show that racism is pervasive and applied with a broad brush. Even kids who are doing the “right thing” can be impacted…therefore the need for the parents to counsel them on how to manage it.

    • Del

      August 2, 2017 at 2:09 pm

      So… a few things. First, I hope the assumption that Black children born without fathers are not taught discipline or respect for authority because, well, you’re wrong. Also, welfare does not cover just AA or Black families. In fact, according to the DOAgriculture, Whites make up 40% of the recipients of SNAP or “food stamps” so… yeah.

      Next, let’s dive into your FBI stats. Now, of course it looks bad that Black people (not just males, as you described, since the table does not explicitly state the gender of those who committed the crime, just the nationality) committed the majority of murders and robbery, but allow me to mention just a couple of crime categories where the White population is not only the majority, but reigns over 60% of the crime rate. Aggravated assaults and Rape (those two you so eloquently mentioned above), Larceny, Auto Theft, Arson, Vandalism, Embezzlement, Domestic violence, Drunkenness (80%! Way to go!), DUI, Vagrancy…. the list goes on.

      That Baltimore stat only proves you know how to do math.

      And as for the incarceration of Black men… well, that just speaks more on the justice system we have in this country. One, where white rapists or criminals can get an overwhelmingly reduced sentence or not even face jail time because “it may negatively affect them” while any Black person can go to jail for doing the smallest of things. Or just be shot in the streets by those “sworn to protect” and they never see a day behind bars.

      There’s just so much wrong with this article and your response, but I’ll just break it down one step at a time.

    • Zoe

      August 2, 2017 at 2:12 pm

    • sue

      August 2, 2017 at 2:16 pm

      What you probably don’t understand: the stats you are referring to happen in concentrated areas. Usually impoverished areas, and crime is a consequence of poverty. (If you were to research the history of housing discrimination, you would understand that the young Black men in prison are the descendants of black people that were discriminated against for housing and housing loans in the 40s and 50s.)

      But the issues discussed in the commercial is widespread for black people, regardless of their income or educational level. When a black college student has to work harder than a white college student, what does that have to do with the black male incarceration rate?

      Also, black men make up around 6% of the population. Black people overall make up 13%.

      I do think the commercial is inappropriate and heavy-handed but the issues it portrays are very real. Some empathy and understanding would go a very long way in this country.

      Yes, all those stats are true. But you may not realize some are CAUSED by racism, like judges who are more likely to send black men to prison than white men for the same crimes, and black men are more likely to be accused and prosecuted, rather than let off the hook for “boys will be boys.” Remember Brock Turner?

      Your stats about Baltimore teenagers don’t match: how does that separate black kids from white ones? What percent of white children are born illegitimate?

      Most importantly, why does that matter? Especially here – there’s nothing in that ad that isn’t realistic for families of color.

      Calling people “minorities” is just as bad as any other racial slur. Minority: less than. So, some people are less than what? You are talking about people, not numbers. If you must separate and classify people by race, call them by the race, not “minority”. That is just another slick way of saying that a group of people is “less than” another group. You may think that it is referring to the number of people of a certain race, but it is referring to the actual people as less than. A similar tactic was used to belittle Black men by calling them “boys” instead of men – always making sure that they were reminded that they were “less than” men in the eyes of the racist white people.

      The problem is liberals and their white guilt allow this behavior to perpetuate by pushing the narrative that so many black men are incarcerated per capita compared to white men of the same age, not because they commit crimes at an astounding rate(which they do) but because racist white people and the police are out there rubbing their hands together and twirling their dastardly moustaches looking to frame black people, and give the “secret honky handshake” that lets them get away with committing these crimes themselves. Black people are being kept in a perpetual mentality of victimhood, in order to keep them Voting Democrat on the virtual slave plantation that Liberals have conveiniently built into their very psyches.

      White people love thr owing out statistics, that are biased and soley created through them to promote an image and agenda toeards black people. I am,an AA female I fit neither one of these stereotypes. Lets talk about the meth and Herione epidemic that is ravaging you’re communities. Did you know white people are on welfare more than any other racial group in the nation? What about the whitegangs in Applapchia? White on white crimes? Suicides (which are at an alarming rate in comparison to homicides that are also still committed by whites)? Rapes? Incest? Besides who’s to say you all are the majority anyway? Since we are talking about stats…. -_-

      A society that broke apart black families now exclaiming it’s the fault of the oppressed? Your inbred ignorance is appalling. The vast majority of welfare recipients are whites in red states. Find someone with an IQ over 30, which you obviously don’t have, to teach you to perform research. You’ll find that especially in the case of blacks, conviction of a crime has not correlation to actual commission of said crime. Your ignorance is appalling.

      I commend P&G for airing this video. It takes much courage for a company to use their platform in such a way knowing that will get backlash from racist ignorant people who shouldn’t even speak on the video because they can’t relate. As a black women, these are valid and accurate conversations that I’ve had to have with my own children. This is not meaningless or pointless, it’s real life. Proctor and Gamble got it right and I will support them 100% for this. For those that don’t agree with me, you don’t have to because unless you’re black, you can’t even relate.

      American Indians/Alaska Natives, it’s 66.9 percent; 53.5 percent for Hispanics; 29.4 percent for non-Hispanic whites; and 17.1 percent for Asians/Pacific Islanders.
      Am sure that percentage does not include the many White Americans who married a man who was NOT the father of that child and all the poor lil White American babies found in trash cans, backpacks, private abortions etc. and does it count the study that claims the 92% bi-racial babies of black fathers with White American Mothers that are born out of wedlock or did they pen that on the black too….
      2013 FBI crime statistics for WHITE AMERICANS
      Forcible Rape 8,946 by Whites, by blacks 4,229
      Aggravated assault by Whites 183,092, by blacks 98,748
      Burglary by Whites 136,990, by blacks 61,709
      Larceny-theft by Whites 677,173, by blacks 284,358
      Motor vehicle theft by Whites 34,864, by blacks 15,960
      Violent crimes by Whites 228,782, by blacks 151,627
      Property crime by Whites 855,225, by blacks 363,952
      Other assaults by Whites 573,546 by blacks 283,357
      and we could go on, Whites have a higher percentage in all crimes over any other race in the United States except for Murder and thank god for you that the count regarding
      Murder and nonnegligent manslaughter by Blacks 4,379 and Whites 3,799 was mostly “Black on Black Crime” don’t feel like your race is doing so great because of a 580 difference.
      This commercial shows the truth and it’s a shame the truth hurts you people and for the black man who stated he never had those type of conversations with any of his family members, he may have not had any with his family members but most Black families have these types of conversations on a regular….. there is nothing racist about the damn truth.

      The reason for those numbers looking that way is over policing and the war on drugs… there is always a causality and its not culture… its infiltration by the US government… Don’t believe me, ask Oliver North. The song Peruvian Cocaine by Immortal Technique actually explains the process extremely accurately, from the Cocoa fields to the streets and the prison cells. Fun fact, the US houses 25% of the world’s prisoners… 60% of the criminal justice system is african american… the 13th amendment didn’t abolish slavery it merely transferred it to prisoners… funny when you look at the root cause of an issue, things become clear.

      First of all most statistics are gathered within a select grouping so although I would say that many numbers are INACCURATE. I happen to be from a family that had TWO live-in parents, My parents both had LIVE-IN parents and my children had TWO live-in parents..and so did the majority of my family and friends..ALL PARENTS MARRIED! 72% of black children are born illegitimate? Not really but the question is who makes up the other 28%? As for the incarceration rate of black men vs. white men. Could it be because most sentences are racially motivated whereas the white defendants are given probation or dismissed sentences vs the black defendants given maximum sentences usually for the SAME crimes. Plus most black defendants can not afford a private attorney and are at the mercy of a public defender, who is basically in bed with the prosecuting side. I would suggest you look at the “statistic” for true numbers and not some that are biased and inaccurate

You can manufacturer welfare, crime, and other , but by all accounts your people by far have the greatest amount of people receiving public assistance. Yes the media always show people of color with hands out. Making you believe it’s true. As yes high proportions of blacks in jail. What you do is forgivable if I were to do it the jail cell door is open with my name on it. Years hundred of years you still feed the lie we are criminals from birth. ”Tis is to justify enslavement, brutality, the feeding of our babies as alligator bait, hanging our babies while holding the Bible. and the horrors living in America , you hoped we died off as the true inhabitants murdered by your people. People sent from England criminals, deceased, crazy and poor etc, to what now America, making England great again. It’s a wonder we’re not in the insane asylums. You’ll hold the bilble while murdering, writing untruthful and evil

      Black people are 13.3% of the U.S. population. 48% are males and only 6% are in jail or prison. Most black people in prison are there for nonviolent crimes like having weed on them (even if they didn’t). So next joint you smoke, just go turn yourself in (you criminal). Lastly, your stats are all around b.s. and make no sense. I rather go with this FBI data (note the .gov). Even though it is a few years old, they do come out with reports like this often. https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/offenses-known-to-law-enforcement/expanded-homicide/expanded_homicide_data_table_6_murder_race_and_sex_of_vicitm_by_race_and_sex_of_offender_2013.xls

      As far as this commercial…it’s true. Not every black person gets the same talk or all them within their lifetime, but most do. Just because one discounts it doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen or isn’t needed. Nothing about this is racist, rather, you may want to ask a black person why they feel that is needed.

      It must be nice to fear nothing.

      >We’ve all seen these stats before, but there is something wrong with our >social system.

      Yes, let’s start with claiming that we are a Christian nation, while ignoring the importance of forgiveness.

      >Approx. 75% of minorities are born without a providing, live in father. They >are raised without discipline and respect for
      >authority.

      There are white people who are rich enough they can live without discipline or respect for authority. Some of them grow up to be President.

      >The cost of welfare and what it’s producing is going to destroy America.

      Clearly you have never been in need.

      >2013. F B I crime statistics involving 15 year old to 34year old Black males.

      Young, black men are 9 times more likely to be killed by police

      >Blacks committed 34.1 % of all forcible rapes.

      Is there an accidental category of rape?

      >This group is only 3 % of the total U S population.
      >Only 16% of Baltimore teenagers have been raised with married parents
      >Meaning 84% of Baltimore teenagers have not been raised with married parents.

      You are good at math, thanks for that.

      >The incarceration rate in state or federal prison or jail
      >for white men was 736 per 100,000,
      >for black men 4,789 per 100,000,

      Do you know about the 13th amendment which kept slavery legal in the case of imprisonment? Do you realize private prisons have contracts with states wherein the state pays a penalty if the prison is below capacity?

      I was going to correct you on your “statistics” but this was before I noticed what website this was. You see I just clicked a link over from Facebook when I saw the video. I decided a long time ago not to waste my time on people who searched out or just Trumped up “facts” to support their beliefs. The only place those numbers are even remotely reported (and they are reported on no legitimate site as you have present them) use very different words from “committed”. They use “arrested for” or “charged with”. When reported with out bias and given the state of political affairs in America and who controls the police it goes a long way towards giving your post the slimmest whiff of legitimacy. Otherwise it is just semi-intelligent racist posturing.

        August 3, 2017 at 4:01 am

        In the black community, there are a number of reasons why the father can be absent from the picture. I could list them, but I’m not sure if you would want to hear them or not (plus my time is valuable, don’t want to waste it). If you’d like to discuss it, we can.

        As for this being racist, I doubt that the actors in this video gave any indication that they were superior to white people. We can discuss this also if you’d like.

        As for the reasoning for this video, I know for a fact that folks in the black community do in fact have to have this talk to prepare their youths for the unfairness and/or hardships they are probably going to have to endure in the future. Not sure how warning them would promote separatism, especially when they’re not tell them “not to talk or hang out with white people”.

Telling my grand children not to do anything that would be perceive as a fucking crime to white people. Blacks & brown are tired, fucking tired. If we have the conversation every day to save a life we will. That dam TV commercial is jus a tip of what needs to be told. I was born in 1951, my mother told those things to me. Her mother her.

        Nothing about this commercial is racist in any way. These mothers weren’t saying all white people are racist, beware. In fact, it doesn’t just apply to white people. There are other groups that discriminate against us as well. My parents never prepared me for the racism I experienced. It would have been nice if they had prepared me. Instead, I learned for myself what it is like for someone to call me an “ugly, nasty, n*gga” or to tell me that I must be stupid and a criminal because I’m black. We had the conversation after it happened. If you speak to your children about the realities of bullying, that is no different from us explaining to our children about racism. It is no different for us to prepare our children to understand that their beauty is not determined by standards they can never hope to achieve because their hair will never look like that, their skin will never look like that. No, not all white people are nasty like the ones I met. I’m not being sarcastic when I say my best friend growing up is white. That didn’t protect me from other people in the neighborhood. That many and probably most white people wouldn’t dream of doing some of these hateful things doesn’t change the fact that plenty do and did, so the conversation is necessary. If you are offended because the parents didn’t add in a disclaimer that all white people are not like that, you are missing the point. These things that we consider so far in our past still happen. It doesn’t matter that black people may call one another the N word. People of all types call their friends by insults, but will never allow an outsider to speak in the same way. Let’s use common sense here. Obviously, when you look at history and when you look at today, you see examples of white people who are not racist or who only have small normal human biases. That is not what the video is about. And since you are a majority, videos like this don’t affect the perception of you. What affects our perception of you are conversations like some of the ones I’m seeing here and like this article. Stating statistics also mean nothing. We have to be honest and say that some of what happens in the criminal justice sentence is intentionally skewed. If white people commit some crimes at the same rate as black people, then we should be in jail at an equal percentage for the same crimes. That is not so. There are reasons for everything and so many things that we have to overcome that are both self-inflicted and inflicted on us. Everyone has a right to an opinion, but at least try to consider why the conversations have to be had. Take it from someone who is only 35, but has been called several blatantly racist names, been spit on, had rocks thrown at me, was hit with a 2×4 by racist little boys…these things still happen. Take it from someone who has had younger family members come home crying from school because a friend said their mother said they aren’t allowed to play with black children. Do you think all of these stories are made up? These things happen! If you aren’t doing them or helping to perpetuate them, then you have no reason to be offended that we are upset at the people who do. If you aren’t doing this to us, why even feel like the conversation is about you? It isn’t. Some white people like to compare us all the time. You can’t. Our situations are different. This commercial is a blip in history. Most people probably didn’t take it the way you did and will not believe all white people are racist trash because people have conversations about racism. But when there is negative media about some black people without a disclaimer, it does hurt black people. Why? Because we are few and there are people in this country who have never met a black person… There are people in this country who may only know one black person. The examples they see on the tv are the only basis of comparison that they have. I grew up on a semi-farm. Later my family lived in what we considered low-end middle class, but that most people in the area (including whites) considered rich because not very many people were well off. I remember having a computer my entire life. I remember having a hot tub and lots of fish tanks. Reading was the favorite past time in my house. Most of us are like that, including extended family. We have our bad apples. But what family doesn’t have those who don’t quite…fit in. I and my family are not exceptions to the rule. We are a normal example of what black families of our socioeconomic status look like. Now if you look at poor communities of any race, you will see everything that someone else kindly listed about black people: single parents, crime, prison time, sub par education, etc. I could continue. I know someone is going to trash everything that I’ve just said. I’m not whining. I’m not playing victim. Stating your reality is not playing victim. This is reality. Racism is something we are likely to face at some point in our lives though the frequency is different from place to place. After graduating high school, I moved and experienced a much lower rate of blatant racism. A low enough rate that I can be very surprised when it does rear its ugly head. That is not true everywhere or for everyone. Someone will also take offense at what I’ve said. How any one can be offended about me saying that some person they likely don’t know was racist is anyone’s guess. My sister and serveral other friends and family members are officers. Officers are not above corruption and prejudices. Cops do choose to put their lives on the line to save lives. Regardless of the crime, how do you justify a cop shooting someone in the back? These things aren’t new. Look at our movies, our songs. We have been talking about corrupt cops forever. They come in all races and hurt all races of people. But our status and image in the country makes it easier for them to do it to us just like it’s easier for them to do it in some of the poor white neighborhoods I know of. Difference is, when it hapends to us, they are hitting a larger percentage of us. I love cops. I have respect for cops. But disrespecting cops is not against the law and I was raised to believe that a good cop would even take a bullet to save a criminal because the cop serves justice. I was raised to believe that a good officer will not stoop to breaking the law to bring in his man. I know, most of this is probably from watching too many movies as a kid. but it is disheartening to know that cops lie, steal, murder, extort like any criminal. Not every case of a cop using lethal force against a black man is unwarranted. But to assume that that officer would never lie and take advantage of our tendancy to trust the officer is also wrong and unsafe. “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” It should also be “thinking or feeling like you have absolute power corrupts absolutely” When bad eggs learn they can get away with anything, they never stop. Ok. I think at this point I have addressed everything I have seen in the comments that made me feel concerned. I welcome empathtic and intellegent conversation. If you just want to throw insults, I will not reply.

        How does this contribute to separation? I am a white male, 25 years old. I have been in the back seat of 5 vehicles that were pulled over with black friends driving. I have been never been pulled over while in the back seat of a vehicle that a white friend was driving. The black drivers were not driving erratically at all. There is still a racial issue in America. And it is not fueled and encouraged by the media, or any company.

        And yes, I think it may be fair to say P&G is using very real racial issues to drive their products. Much like Dove used problems in female beauty standards to drive what is now known as one of the most successful advertising campaigns.

      White individuals were arrested more often for violent crimes than individuals of any other race and accounted for 60.1 percent of those arrests.
      Of all juveniles (persons under the age of 18) arrested in 2015, 62.9 percent were White, 33.9 percent were Black or African American, and 3.1 percent were of other races.
      Of all adults arrested in 2015, 70.4 percent were White, 26.0 percent were Black or African American, and 3.7 percent were of other races.
      Of juveniles arrested for drug abuse violations, 75.0 percent were White.

      It’s funny how you show these statistics about things that have NOTHING to do with the actual commercial.

      Why don’t you talk about the conditions that a black person lived in under Jim Crow?
      Why don’t you talk about the issues that the commercial ACTUALLY tackles?

      You know you can’t because you wouldn’t have a leg to stand on.

And as for your incarceration rates, that is actually clear proof that black men are profiled for the same crimes white men are committing at basically the same rate. This is a rate of incarceration, try looking up true stats about convictions and race. Whites are 10 times more likely to get probation than jail time, so you are just another racist idiot spewing fake crap to continue the problem.

      This comment was more racist than the video itself. First of all, how do you know how they were raised? YOU don’t!! I’ve seen kids who live with BOTH parents, who work hard, provide for them,had the best childhoods and they turned to a life of crime and violence. And I’ve also seen kids come from single mother homes, barely any food, living in rough neighborhoods full of violence, and they’ve grown up to become doctors, lawyers, teachers, etc… Your parents can raise you right, but at the end of the day it’s THAT person’s choice to choose the road to go down. And do more research. Look into the number of black men that have been mistakenly imprisoned. And i bet the majority of black males incarcerated are in there for small, petty charges such as marijuana and traffic violations. But I bet the white people are in there for murder, rape, and other harsh crimes lol.

      Using statistics against black people is the worst way to present your argument and shows your own high level of prejudice. It’s a fact that police profile people of color, in particular, and arrest more people of color for that reason.

      Your last statistic proves it, dumbass.

      The incarceration rate in state or federal prison or jail
      for white men was 736 per 100,000,
      for black men 4,789 per 100,00

You think this country’s judicial system isn’t based on White supremacy, privilege, and oppression of people of color? You don’t see where all that comes into play? You probably don’t. You’re the typical racist White person who lives in your own little White world listening to all the idiots on Fox news. You act as if White people don’t commit crimes and you’ve forgotten about the atrocities your people have done to people of color and still do every single day. We know that not all White people are not racist like yourself. That was clearly evident by the majority popular vote that Trump lost. But we also know that racist like yourself will always try to call yourselves victims of the people you’ve victimized. History proves my point. Look at what Whites have done to the indigenous people of North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa just to name a few. After you all that racist White people have totally destroyed, all the lives of people of color that you have totally destroyed and that you than tell get over it and pull yourselves up by your bootstraps. Things that you weak racist could never do, but you tell those whom you have oppressed to do and many of us have done that. But we will never get over it until what was done is rectified. When we call racist White people aka conservatives out on your history, lies, and injustices than we’re racist. Those commercials aren’t racist. Far from it. They’re based on facts that many of you racist conservatives cannot accept, but the truth is the truth and not alternative facts. Stop evading the truth and try dealing with the truth.

      You use FBI numbers which are voluntarily reported by those police agencies that chose to report, that refer to solved crimes and arrests, not criminal actions.

      Back before the Republicans had such deep control of congress, and forced a sequester of funds, the DOJ used to publish a report called “Criminal Victimization In The United States” that was based on going out and conducting surveys to find the crime rates, not the arrest rates.

      What they found is, black people, who are about 13% of the population, are twice as likely as white people to be in poverty, and commit about 23% of serious crimes. White people, who are about 6 times as many as black people commit about 65% of crimes.

      Which adds up to, crime follows poverty. The FBI, long ago, published a study that showed the same thing. It showed that poor whites are just as crime prone as poor blacks. It showed that as black people move up economically they become more victimized by crime, because their move includes living closer to poor whites rather than well to do whites.

      The crime rate for black people was 23%, the arrest rate was about 35%, the percentage of those in prison was 50%. We are talking about serious crime, so how does that not show racial bias.

      The good news, recent stats show that the percentage of those in prison has fallen to 40%. The bad news is, this is not because of fewer black men going to prison, but more white men going to prison.

      Don’t forget, plain imprisonment rates include much lesser crimes such as drug possession or use. For that a lot more black people go to prison.

      You get your statistics from racially biased sources. Anytime you get stats that are so carefully targeted you are getting biased stats. Did you see the rates for white people in the age group?

      You already showed the rate of births of black children to married couples, so why did you quote one city with a specially bad rate?

      It’s called bias. You just showed it.

      Again, your stats showed what criminals were pursued, not what people committed crimes. I have been following this for decades, back to when the government really tried to give honest reports.

      Perhaps this has to do with social structure and incarceration rate for non violent offenses within minority communities… you do understand why there are huge disparities economically? You are aware of “red lining” and other institutionalized behavior that created these income and education disparities? Like I told my father-in-law “do you really think it was the black people that pushed to be segregated and have large non inclusive housing complexes(ghettos) built in the 60’s 70’s and 80’s which even more isolated communities?” Of course then I had to explain in detail how even the construction of our national highway programs were designed to rip out ethic communities from city centers. STATS ARE GREAT BUT NUMBERS HAVE A HISTORIC QUANTIFIER.

      These crime statistics have to be about convictions. Think about that for a moment. If there is systemic racism, implicit or explicit, then they are all skewed, because White criminals will tend to skate one way or another much much more than Black ones will, more Blacks will be tracked down because of more police fervor, and more Blacks will be wrongly convicted. That’s not even counting the forces that will tend to tip more Blacks over to crime, proportionately, if they are those borderline cases that exist in any population. I mean, how many times does such a borderline case get pulled over or rousted by cops before he or she says, heck, might as well do the crime anyway? It it takes 12 times on average and Blacks get it 14 and Whites get it 2, what do you think will happen to the general stats?

      Logan doesn’t think “the Talk” is necessary, but that doesn’t change the fact that his kids are more vulnerable to a bad outcome of an interaction with a biased person without that conversation. Even if they are completely respectful to a cop in a pull over, they can still be killed trying to comply with panicked, contradictory commands while trying to provide their carry license. If they ever see a White friend give attitude and skate, will they realize they probably can’t give that same attitude and also skate? Will they know that they can’t even show annoyance about being pulled over, even while being perfectly respectful to the officer until his repeated attempts to evoke a negative response finally pays off, and they end up dead in a cell by supposed suicide?

      The kind of negative comments we’re seeing about the ad only go to prove that at least implicit bias still exists, giving the commenters the benefit of the doubt that they are not full on bigots.

      First off, statistics can be very misleading. Also, it is a racist generalisation to say this many black men do this thing so therefor [any conclusion about black people whatsoever)
      You also seem to be forgetting that black people have been pretty fucked over by white people and the system since before the US officially existed. You cant just quote these statistics and pretend it says black people are intrinsically bad, that is so ignorant.

      If anyone is destroying America, it is white people. White people who spread hate and fear, who take from the poor and give to the rich.

      You are a blatant racist trying to blame a race you dont understand and thus feel threatened by because you have such a narrow and delusional view of reality.

      BTW, stats like the last one there are definitely the fault of racism against black people. A black man is much more likely to get arrested for something a white man would get away with, and white people commit so many more heinous crimes but the system has worked in their favour that they are in positions of wealth and power and can do whatever the fuck they want. Thats why we still have a maniac as president for example. People questioned Obama’s eligibility because they refused to believe his birth certificate… only on the basis that he wasnt white! I mean there really isnt any winning with racist white people… Im white btw. Its fucking gross and shameful to see.

      Get your head out of your ass. You and your failure to understand reality is what drives love and security apart. You are part of the problem, you see.

      Where in the world did you drudge up those statistics? Black people are 3% of the population? That should have been your first clue it was phony, the black population has never been that low – even in the 1700s. Even if you split the 13% you’re not going to get 3%. Also FBI statistics (or ANY type of statistics) wouldn’t group minors with adults in their data… 15? Why 15? Even 16 would’ve been a better fake answer. And I hate to be the bearer of bad news but… There are more of us white people on welfare. 50 million people are currently on welfare. That’s more than the entirety of the black population. Even 90% is still too many. And even if you throw in the other minorities (which are significantly less) you’re never going to reach that magic majority. Oh, Hispanic/latinos? That’s going to include white people and even then, you’re assuming nearly ALL of them are on welfare. Come on, Gigene, you’re making us look bad.

      12.6% of Americans are Black not under 3% as you claimed.

      Let’s look at some other numbers since you are so eager to throw out bullshit facts.

      As a life long police officer…….

      Blacks sentences for crimes compared to their white counterparts tend to be 75% LONGER for the same crimes, and white criminals are 7X more likely to recieve probation or suspended sentences.

      Black drivers are 23X more likely to be randomly pulled over or have their tags runs than white drivers.

      Blacks constitute 63% of all civilians killed by police officers despite only constituing only 49% of all police/civilian interactions.

      The number of blacks who were convicted of a crime who were later exonerated and proven innocent by suppressed evidence, false testimony or faulty test results is 36X that of white defendants……. they are viewed as guilty based on skin color alone.

      So as a proud white American who has defended this country (and you)in war and while wearing a badge I’m telling you to get your fucking facts straight or shut your racist mouth.

      hmm… wonder where you got those stats, because the real ones look nothing like that.
      Black people make up roughly 13% of the United States population, and white people make up 64%. Black people make up 40% of the prison population, and white people 39%. Therefore, even though there are roughly five times as many white people as black people in this country, blacks and whites are incarcerated in equal numbers. But the fact that black people are incarcerated five times as frequently as white people does not mean black people commit five times as many crimes. Here’s why:

      (1) If a black person and a white person each commit a crime, the black person is more likely to be arrested. This is due in part to the fact that black people are more heavily policed.
      Black people, more often than white people, live in dense urban areas. Dense urban areas are more heavily policed than suburban or rural areas. When people live in close proximity to one another, police can monitor more people more often. In more heavily policed areas, people committing crimes are caught more frequently. This could help explain why, for example, black people and white people smoke marijuana at similar rates, yet black people are 3.7 times as likely to be arrested for marijuana possession. (The discrepancy could also be driven by overt racism, more frequent illegal searches of black people, or an increased willingness to let non-blacks off with a warning.)

      (2) When black people are arrested for a crime, they are convicted more often than white people arrested for the same crime.
      An arrest and charge does not always lead to a conviction. A charge may be dismissed or a defendant may be declared not guilty at trial. Whether or not an arrestee is convicted is often determined by whether or not a defendant can afford a reputable attorney. The interaction of poverty and trial outcomes could help explain why, for example, while black defendants represent about 35% of drug arrests, 46% of those convicted of drug crimes are black. This discrepancy could also be due to racial bias on the part of judges and jurors.

      (3) When black people are convicted of a crime, they are more likely to be sentenced to incarceration compared to whites convicted of the same crime.
      One study found that in a particular region blacks were incarcerated for convicted felony offenses 51% of the time while whites convicted of felonies were incarcerated 38% of the time. The same study also used an empirical approach to determine that race, not confounded with any other factor, was a key determinant in judges’ decisions to incarcerate.

      Your stats are wrong. The FBI Crimes by Race for 2013 show that white people commit the majority of crime in this country. Twice as many rapes, assaults, burglaries, car thefts, larcenies. Blacks and whites were equal on murders and robberies. https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/tables/table-43. 2015 FBI statistics on crime by race show that crime by whites in teased: 3 times more rapes, burglaries, assaults

      These stats may well be true but the cause and effects of almost 400 years of programing of the black psyche cannot be undone in one or even two generations, to the effect that he is an animal, valued for his muscles and reproductive capabilities to increase the masters holdings, the only thing for which he was rewarded.

      These conversations are very common and necessary in pre preparing black children to face an oppressive racist system which is stacked against them. Fortunately, I was an imigrant without the bennefits of such a talk, but endured the effects of racial injustices all the same. Unfortunately, a white person and not even P&G will ever relate to the systemic racial marginalization of the black race.

      Gigene it’s 2017. Why are you listing stats from 2013 when EVERYONE can easily Google current stats )as I did.) I suspect because the rates crime has decreased over the years for Black males, while increasing for whites. FBI stats 2015:

      White males committed 68% of RAPES vs 28.2 of Black males
      White males committed 64% of aggravated ASSAULT vs 32.1 of Black males
      White males committed 68.1% of BURGLARY vs 29.5 of Black males
      White males committed 69.6 of LARCENY/THEFT vs. 27.4 of Black males
      White males committed 67.2 of motor vehicle/THEFT vs. 29.4 of Black males
      White males committed 54.5 of prostitution vice vs. 39.9 of Black males
      White males committed 65.9 of “other” ASSAULTS vs. 30.8 of Black males
      … I could go on, but anyone concerned about the actual numbers can look it up for themselves. If they do, they will see who exactly was “raised without discipline and respect for authority.” The skewed, outdated, and leading stats you posted are inaccurate at best. And fake news at its worst.

      Oh, and P.S. regarding your “The cost of welfare and what it’s producing is going to destroy America…” comment. You may be right there. Considering far more White people collect welfare in the U.S. than Black.

      I grew up with the privilege of a good family with a loving father and mother who valued my education, took me to church, and went with me on Scouting activities, all of which helped me learn personal responsibility and compassion for others. Nothing white or black about that. These are powerful statistics, but they do NOT show the nature of black people (that would be a racist interpretation) but the importance of good family and of good education. Do you see the connection between the first statistic (75% of minority kids growing without a father at home) and the following stats? The solution is not to boycott P&G or to rant about victimhood, but to figure out how to support black FAMILIES and black MARRIAGES. What is the role of the drug epidemic, programs of “zero tolerance” and “3 strikes” and mass incarceration? What is the role of school funding and housing patterns that gives some kids a rotten education just due to their zip code? What can we do to support good families and good schools for everyone?

      All of these statistics prove that blacks are more often called to account for any infraction.

      The comments alone about this commercial is racist. Virtually every comment is by a white person condemning P&G for what? Telling the truth? That’s what gripes your asses. You are prejudiced and racist and you can’t stand the truth. The truth is, WE the white community is at fault throughout history for what this country has become. We stole it from the Indians, virtually slaughtered them into extinction. Then we jumped on our boats headed off to Africa and shanghaied people do to our bidding and be our slaves. Lastly, we allowed the illegals to enter the country to pick the fruits and vegetables for the white farmers at slave wages because little Johnny was too good for that kind of work. Truth is, little Johnny was and is too f’ing lazy to do any work. Now we are up in arms because we are on the verge of being the minority. What we are is on the verge of another Civil War. It’s won’t be North vs. South, it’ll be black vs. white. Read the comments on the major sites that has a raced based story. The racism from both sides is tantamount to each side wishing death on the other. After 240 years, we haven’t learned a damn thing about society, equality or respect for one another. It’s not the Muslims or terrorists or illegal immigrants that’s going to bring this country down. We are hell bent on doing it to ourselves. We’ll reap what we sow and as a country we sow nothing but hate towards one another. And BTW, don’t give me any of this “I’m a Christian” crap. Jesus Christ was a dark skinned Jew. White Supremacy, the Klu Klux Klan is alive all well in America. Your leaders Hilter & Trump would be proud. And Gigene, your statistics are a skewed as your racist mind.

      Your statistic proves that’s what is happening. It doesn’t identify the cause or reasons. Also, where are you getting your statistics, please show a link and credible resources next time and also include an analyses of causes & effects. You’re trying to make it seem like black people are naturally awful just because it’s in our genetics? Is it a coincidence the black race only seems to be “oh-so-awful” more here in America than other countries? A race CAN be subjugated and forced to do acts when they feel they are nothing less and have no other choice because their opportunities are limited unless they can sing, dance, or play sports. God forbid a black person try to succeed in life with a hiring process that shows blacks are usually not hired and paid less even with proper education, and god forbid putting a black person in a management position even if they’ve earned it. I’ve taken multiple sociology classes and the “statistics” show that being poor, being black, and being female, overall in America, makes you least likely to get a job or given proper educational opportunities. Statistics dos not tell WHY though, does it? So please stop. You aren’t proving your point, you’re just proving subjugation and discrimination without even realizing it because no race is “naturally” or “genetically” lesser than any other race, but it is obvious that you believe it is. You must think Whites, due to statistics, are superior and need to educate other races on the right way to be? Sounds familiar… like history repeating itself or maybe it never stopped.

      Innocent people!!

      You live on a STOLEN LAND and speak loudly about right and wrong, EVERYTHING you exist on is based on CRIMES of rape, murder, slavery and atrocity the likes of which history has NEVER seen prior and speak loudly about right and wrong, huh?

      Your parents and grandparents lined the streets 50 years ago, Violently and Adamantly resisting the idea that ANY people other than white were included in the “All men are created equal” WE FORCED these racist, rabid haters to accept the attributes of compassion and love and now their offspring pat themselves on the back as the beacon of goodness and compassion.

      YOU represent histories BIGGEST THIEVES, HISTORIES LARGEST ILLEGITIMATE Fathers as your Grandparents RAPED slaves and made their own offspring slaves, like Thomas Jefferson, your Heros.

      Bottom line, white people are racists. Conservatives are ALL racists, and want to take us back to the “original” meaning of the Constitution, when African Americans were valued at 3/5 of a person. Saw the moronic Huckabee calling for repeal of the 17th Amendment. That’s ALL about preserving WHITE PRIVILEGE and WHITE PATRIARCHAL PRIVILEGE.

      P&G using racial issues to fuel a marketing campaign is not a crime, nor is it race baiting. It is using selling a product by inducing thought on real issues. It is the racial version of Dove’s famous and extremely successful beauty campaign, that fought to readdress female beauty standards.

        A boycott needs to be promoted – share share share this information and video.
        Don’t purchase any product without checking who manufactures it. P&G has a long list of products, but I do not have the list. Easier just to look at what you are buying and avoid Proctor and Gamble. There are many many other products equally as good. Boycotts have been very effective in other situations, i.e. Starbucks and Target.

However I am not blind to the realities that people of color face just living day to day lives. If you are white you have most likely never, never had to have a discussion of how people will portray your worth, value, intelligence, or skill based on the color of your skin. Trust and believe every parent of a child of color has.

    Yeah,they show black people in the 1950’s wearing nice dress and shirt and tie.While the truth is
    Made them sit on the back of the bus,sit in the back of the restaurants.That’s because they were rowdy stinking crazy animals without imputed morals.With stinking diapered.snot encrusted face animal offspring all over other peoples booths and the rest of the restaurant,hollering shouting jumping harassing people.Just like they do now.

    They had to give them their own water fountains because they would always break them, like the public phone booths.Just like they do now.
    Except they were way more primitive back then.

    Yes discrimination still holds true but that’s just because humans have common sense and deep desire for personal peace and safety for family,friends and the community from the many undesirable situations you find around black people and the black community.

    • Douglas Oscar Garner

      August 1, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      I found some information,It makes a lot of sense,It explains a lot.

      Adam and Eve have only their own seed within themselves, so can only produce their own kind. Yet we are asked by intellectual prostitutes to believe that all races came from Adam and Eve. To produce another race or species, another seed would be necessary. When different races mix, they do not bring forth their own kind; their offspring are mongrels or hybrids. This is a transgression against Divine Law, upsetting Nature’s delicate balance and producing THAT WHICH IS NOT GOOD. Little wonder that, so often in the past, God has destroyed His own children for mongrelizing, and, you can be sure, He will again.

      We could go on indefinitely quoting Scripture to prove that the negro is merely an articulate member of the beast creation. Even though he has not been given the intelligence and Spiritual understanding of the White Race, he can think and reason up to a point, therefore he is to have dominion over the other animals.

      Let us give credit where credit is due, the negro is King, KING OF THE BEASTS.

      For proof that they are beasts, and God calls them exactly that, may I refer you to the following passages:Gen. 1: 25: “And God made the beast of the earth AFTER ITS KIND, and cattle AFTER THEIR KIND, and everything that creepoth upon the earth, AFTER ITS KIND, and God saw that it was good. ” In the last two verses, note distinction between cattle and beasts .

      Exodus 9: 9: “And it shall become small dust in the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with ulcers upon “”man and upon beast”‘, through all the land of Egypt. ” You can be sure God was not punishing four legged beasts by afflicting them with boils.

      Acts 10: 12: “In which were all manner of four footed beasts of the earth, and wild beasts , and creeping things, and fowls of the air. ” Note the distinction here between four footed beasts and wild beasts.

      Jer. 21: 6: “And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast; they shall die of a great pestilence. ” Would God refer to a four legged beast as an inhabitant of a city?

      Jer. 27: 6: “And now have I given all these lands into the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, the King of Babylon, my servants (Adamic Race) and the beast of the field have I given him also to serve him.” The negro race has always been used as servants.

      Ezek. 14: 15: “If I cause evil beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts. ” Only two legged beasts could stop man from passing through the land.

      Jonah 3: 7-8: “Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; let them not feed nor drink water. But let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God. ” Note distinction here: man, beast, herd. What manner of beast would wear sackcloth and have the power of speech?

      Zach. 8: 1O: “For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beasts. ” Here we have beasts that can be hired. If these are four legged beasts that can be hired, someone should alert Internal Revenue.

      Jer. 31: 27-30: “Man and beast will cohabit and they will all die for their iniquity. ”

      Jer. 31: 34: “And they shall teach no more, every man his neighbor and every man his brother. ” In my opinion this verse pretty well takes care of the liberal’s Brotherhood Program.

      II Peter 2: 12: “But these as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, they speak evil of the things that they understand not, and shall utterly perish in their own corruption. ”

      It ain’t hatred it’s common sense

      You think I spent decades deciphering this stuff and publish it..it will take months of studying before you can understand it all.

      It’s not hate it’s what the scripture says…On the fifth day he made the ‘BEASTS OF THE FIELD’ as God calls them.1 Thousand years later he made Adam and eve.It says all MEN were created equal but the beasts are not in that category.It is a surprise to you cause it’s new,your in shock.when they found them and brought them here it was plain to see they were beasts and the bible said they were,every one knew it ,it was common knowledge..You study this and it will start to make perfect sense,it is the explanation for everything,although it wouldn’t be right to hate them for what they are it would be wise to know the difference,the truth.When Abram Lincoln desired to free them he decided to call them equal,but it is plain to see they were not created equal.Thats why they deserve special shit ..study it do months of research,use common sense,it’s plain to see …The link i gave you has much more involved than black and white it is very deep and complex,kinnda

      Colossians 1:26 the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people.

      We shouldn’t hate a negro any more than we hate a lion tiger or a snake.but we should be very cautious when they’re around.they are dangerous as we can plainly see.

      The Bible does not mention anything about black people or people with colored skin.If some white descendants of Adam and Eve just turned brown for some reason,I think God would have told us and he would have told us why as well.

      In the old testament they were called beasts,in the new testament they simply weren’t mentioned.

      It says in Genesis 3:1, “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.” This beast was so close to a human being (and yet was pure animal) that he could reason and talk. He was close to a man. He was almost man. He was an upright creature and was somewhat in between a chimpanzee and a man, but closer to a man. He was so close to being human that his seed could, and did mingle with that of the woman and cause her to conceive. Before Adam ever had a carnal knowledge of Eve, the serpent had that knowledge ahead of him. And that one born of it was CAIN. “Cain was of (born of, begotten of) that “Wicked One”, according to I John 3:12.

The color of your skin does not make you the person you become your actions do, so if you choose to be a criminal you cant blame anyone or anything other than yourself, you have a choice to rise above anything.

      So this isn’t just a commercial, this is a serious conversation black parents have to have with their children. Is it wrong to tell you daughter she is beautiful NOT just pretty despite being black? Is it wrong to tell your child watch out, police aren’t going to treat you the same as they do others, they are statistically more aggressive towards you, is it wrong to tell your child that you are just as good as any other student in school or at competition but you have to work twice as hard for it to show?

      The idea that white people are being seen as evil or racist or what have you is a thought generated and sold on this site and others like it.

      It speaks on the racial bias in the US which is still very bad in a developed and “free” country.

      I will have all these conversations with my children, because it is necessary.

      You believe it’s unfair because you don’t experience these issues in your everyday life. This is a reality for Black Americans and so many people turn a blind eye and call it “reverse racism” or teaching separatism. P&G are showing a side of life that many do not want to see because of their own either upfront or hidden prejudices. P&G even demonstrates purposed stereotypes by excluding black fathers from the ad! Once white people understand that this is what happens and majority of these situations is perpetuated by your own…then maybe there will be no need for these types of ads .

      “That’s unfair ,,,you are teaching hate with this commercial, how are our children ever going to respect each other with people like you, telling one group they are GOING TO BE MISSTREATED,by the other group”

      The unfair thing is your presumption that African-Americans need to be told by someone else when we are being mistreated. Do you think the Civil Rights movement was predicated on a mass desire to make a collective filed trip to Washington, D.C., or a sudden collective aversion to mass transit?!? So King marched and was assassinated, and the various Civil Rights laws were passed. Racism over…right? What do you think happened to those people who OPPOSED the Civil Rights laws? Do you think they simply said “okay” and went on their merry way letting live and let live irrespective of race? If you think they did, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell to you. They had children and inculcated them with the same warped values that led to the bigotry that prompted the Civil Rights movement in the first place. Those kids grew up and became teachers, policemen, doctors, lawyers, businessmen and politicians-people of all walks of life. They acted and voted to undermine the Civil Rights laws and perpetuate the bigotry you now pretend doesn’t exist.

      The lesson taught by this video is that racism is not dead, it has just tried to go underground. You have finally been called out for the cute remarks made, Their children are “cute” when they are small, our children are “smart”. Being called “Sunshine” is highly offensive, but how many of us call a black woman that when we notice she is cheerful? Being “Cute for a black girl” has been an insult heaped upon many a black WOMAN.

      When death is a possible outcome of an interaction gone wrong that disproportionately affects your demographic more than others, you better believe I am going to err on the side of caution and warn my kids. Ever hear Dr. Phil say it takes a thousand atta-boys to erase one slur? So even if there is was a small chance of the slur happening, you have to fortify your kid against it or there will be psychological damage that could have been avoided.

      And do you think parents do “The Talk” if they haven’t either experienced the bigotry or seen someone else bear the brunt of it? It happens much less than it used to, but still way more than you think.

      One question, why is it that white children still call black children derogatory names? Where
      did they learn their hatred? I recently heard a white teenager say that he hates N*****. Where
      did he learn that? This is 2017 and we still hear about hatred and violence towards people of another race. Like it was said, children aren’t born with hatred, they learn it from the adults in their family and their community.

    The 2 minutes of the P&G “talk” sets racial progress backwards. While many, black, white, brown are trying to find a forward path of peace and acceptance P&G goes to the racial stereotype of yesteryears. I really appreciate Anthony Logan’s You Tube “discussion” of what is real. He puts the P&G ad into proper context and explodes the myth they are trying to foster. This view is what riots are made of and they should be held accountable.

      Watching this ugly commercial brought tears to my eyes. It is so sickening to think this kind of conversation really takes place in our society. I was never reared to think anything less of any race of people who live in our country. We are the melting pot of the world. As a child, all I knew was that the Indians came here first and the rest of us came from other lands. If there is any blame for the sad racial situation with any children, black, white, or any other color of skin, I tend to give it to all men who mistreat and disrespect women, abandon their children, and cause the heartache of having no father to support them in their lives. It’s become generational and, as always, our innocent children are the ones who suffer for the mindless, hurtful, and irresponsible actions of adults. I’ve had enough of Corporations, Politicians, Sports stars, and Hollywood elites pushing their agendas on the rest of us. It’s pretty much about their bottom line and getting votes. Can we just look at people and see another human being that has the same wants and needs as we do? Diane Hendrick

      JTAS, you may not have done anything to them but how did they see it from their end? Were they followed around when they visited the stores in the area? Did they get called anything derogatory? Were they given back-handed compliments? Were they being taught to hate the color of their own skin like I was back in the 90’s as a child growing up?

      It’s not about you or weather you love your black friends. It’s about what you have to go through vs what your black friends had to go through and how you would prepare you child for that.

      Give me a break. You think your one experience at your school represents all the hatred that went on during desegregation of schools and other places. Were you awake in the 50? Separate but equal was the law of the land—it wasn’t some made up thing in the minds of black people. Yeah you should have asked yourself what is wrong with this country when separate but equal and segregation was everywhere.

      It’s wrong in this country that people died protesting segregation. I’m sure your black friends would appreciate your easy dismissive comment about desegregation at your school. By the way, I don’t trust your word that there were no problems since you weren’t the one sent in to integrate the school. You weren’t with those kids every hour of their day. You’re right that kids learn racism from adults except your definition of racism thinks that blacks and other minorities no longer deal with racism.

And it’s a shame that people cannot learn from experiences that others may have but they don’t share. I learned a long time ago that just because something didn’t happen to me doesn’t mean it didn’t happen at all. Apparently, a lot of people never learned that.

      I understand you may think this is a bad commercial and I truly believe you are a good person. The statement you made about the only two black kids in your school. First of all. Think about why there were only two black students in your school. Could it possibly be there was red lining and you did not have blacks in the neighborhood? There are a number of other factors that might have contributed to the lack of diversity in your school at that time. Now we have your perspective on the fact that there were no issues. Because you are a good person. If at all possible. I would ask if the two black students share your same perspective. This commercial show a perspective you may not be aware of. Sorry it angers you or you don’t see that perspective. In the fifties. Laws were being change to even allow blacks to attend the same school as whites. So just from a simple common sense perspective. You must know how different our perspective must have been. Contrary to what you may know or believe. My family had those talks. During the fifties they were still hanging black people. So trust me. Our dinner table talks were different from yours and that commercial is an example of that. Sad we had to have those talks but black people were not rounding up other black people and hanging them. So as uncomfortable as this commercial may make some people. The reality of what you see is real. Black people certainly wish P & G would never have to make a commercial like that. But we did not understand why going to school with white people had to be made a law either.

      There were no problems that YOU saw – or that you chose to see. Unless you were one of those children who were forced to be revolutionaries because of a society that devalued them for something as insignificant as skin color, then you have no idea what they went through. I love how you point out that you have ‘black’ friends – most closet racists use the same excuse. These kids aren’t being taught to hate, they are being taught to NOT hate themselves and to try to survive and thrive in a world that still doesn’t fully trust or accept them.

And just so you know, we black people do NOT appreciate the “I have a black friend” retort every non black person but, mainly whites seem to do. Another thing, you are always mentioning having “a friend or 2” but never seem to name them or give a gender. Stop it! It ks played out and racist within itself.

    Why the hell would P&G post such a racist video. Instead of them teaching their children that everyone is equal stop teaching them to be racist. This makes me sick. thank the previous administration for this great divide. I’m not racist yet according to this video I am. I have worked with all kinds of races and I treated them all with respect and they treated me with respect. Let’s stop looking at the color of ones skin and just them by their character. All people are created equal. Racist is shared by all races. Not just whites against blacks. This video truly shows that blacks can be racist also. So these adults should grow up and teach their children correctly instead of playing the race card.

      In what way is it “racist” to warn kids to be on their guard when they’re stopped for a traffic violation?

      In what way is it “racist” for a mother to tell her little girl she is beautiful, without qualifying the statement?

      I think you need to look up the definition of “racism,” because you’re using it incorrectly. A racist is someone who believes that certain races are inherently superior or inferior to others. There was nothing in this commercial suggesting that black Americans think they’re superior, or that white people are inferior. It wasn’t about white people at all, so why are you trying to make it all about you?

      You’re correct, everyone is equal but we all know that everyone is not treated equal. You’re blaming the previous administration for something that has been going on for years. You teach what is not true. Blacks are discriminated against more than any other race and because P&G have thrown it peoples face you know see all of this “everyone is equal”. How can a black person not teach what they experience? You will be profiled by police, you will be looked at as lesser than in the business world regardless of your education or experience. Where would P&G get the idea and commentary from, if this is not prevalent in todays society. To continue to brush it under the rug only confirms that it is happening and it is a continuous cover up by those who want to keep status quo but keep it quiet.

      This video is not racist and does not promote racism. Apparently in your U.S. the police do not automatically ask for your ID when walking or driving, and their hand isn’t on their holster every time you get pulled over. You don’t hear comments that end with “…for a XXXX person”. This video demonstrates that blacks must prepare for a different experience than whites.

      You didn’t grow up like I (and many others) did. For instance, after asking the police why I was pulled over, getting a response of “you’re the only black boy around”. Of tolerating jokes like “what’s yellow and black and funny?” The response being “a busload of n***ers going over a cliff”. That joke was told to me over the phone by a company representative in another state because they thought I was white.

      I truly wish we all had the same, equal, experience. I also agree with your position that giving and getting respect is mandatory. However that is not yet the US that many people live in. This video simply brings that point to light.

      Out of curiosity, you state that people should grow up and teach their children correctly. What is the correct way to respond to “you look pretty for a black girl”, or “you look pretty for a fat girl”, or “you look pretty for a white girl”?

      So tell me, given the history of slavery, the Civil War, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights movement, the advancement of the Hamitic hypothesis in churches, and the various instances of police brutality, how would you recommend African-Americans teach their kids about functioning in this society? Forget the historical stuff for a second. Let’s look at the notable instances of contemporary police brutality. Tell me if this sounds familiar. Black person who may or may not be guilty, gets acosted by police for whatever underlying offense-none of which were ever capital offenses-and the police are acquitted. Conservative finger wagging whites predictably intone that the black suspect should have complied with police orders (As an aside, I’ve yet to hear anything approaching a reasonable explanation indicating how 12 year old Tamir Rice could have understood and complied with any police command in the <3 seconds from police arrival at the park and the gunshot that killed him). Yet these same conservatives lauded the overwhelmingly white Bundy militia as "heroes" for their armed standoff against federal law enforcement. If anything demonstrated non compliance with law enforcement, pointing numerous high powered rifles at them did. Yet nary a conservative said they should have been killed or shot. Apparently, law enforcement lives wearing a federal shade of blue matter less than the local blue lives. It is that disingenuous piety, that duplicitous hypocrisy, those spectacular double standards that make commercials like that, and the talks they depict, necessary and relevant.

Please take off your rose colored glasses and see the world for what it is. ” The world is not a friendly place, but here and there are friendly creatures (like you) hiding in it.

      Why haven’t you guys done that? I mean you can’t find one act of overt racism against whites by blacks but I can start with slavery and move to Jim Crow, Black Codes, Segregation, Voting, Civil Rights, Housing discrimination, lending discrimination, employment discrimination and a whole list of other things that the courts had to resolve because even though the Constitution says one thing whites have never let that stop them from doing the opposite until caught and it overturned. You say all people are created equal but somewhere I read that blacks were considered 1/5th of a man here in America. Now what in this video showed blacks being racist? Explaining to their children that they aren’t what whites say or act towards them and that even though folks say we are created equal that as blacks being average doesn’t cut it in America. Lets look at this current administration and the new fight against Affirmative Action where whites feel they have been somehow discriminated against because a black person got a spot they felt they should have. Whats funny about that? White women have been the biggest beneficiaries of Affirmative Action (documented fact). So lets be real about this. If I as a black person acted as a white person does when getting stopped by a police do you think I would be alive today? You all mouth off at the police wave guns and fight with them and live to tell about it. And just so you know. Whites kill 75% of all the police that get murdered during stops and this year your on record to hit that 89% mark!!!

        I agree. Claiming to not be racist but jumps right in and blames Obama – There have been studies that prove cops stop and arrest blacks far more than whites – with far less reason. Black parents HAVE to have “the talk” to prepare their kids for reality. I am a 70 year old white woman and I am sick to death of what I see going on in this country. Not all people are racist but a lot more are than think they are. Barack Obama was one of the finest men ever to occupy the White House. He and his family endured disgusting rhetoric and pictures demonizing them. And they he=ld their heads up, provided an outstanding example of family values and decency for this country. Now we have this disgusting depraved pig in the White house who vilifies everyone “different” and respects nothing but money, The election of Trump has given free rein to the worst people in America. And come off it about the cops. What whining. Yes, there are good cops. There are also bad cops, and they get away with it because of all the worshipful horse shit.

        This is just sad. The majority of problems you quote are real in bad schools and big cities but why make it worse? I thought things were really improving until obama started taking sides, using race, before any facts were known. Affirmative action did get out of control to where people no longer trust the graduation diplomas of Black students because different standards were used in grades. Teachers know they are in real trouble if they enforce rules against Black students. In college I saw Black students “share” papers. Look what happened at Evergreen college in Washington state when minority students demanded white people leave campus for a day in place of the tradition of minority students staying home a day to show how they would be missed; teachers yelled at, followed, demanded resignation of faculty, demands of no grades, no attendance to classes required, etc. This foolishness just hurts everyone. What do you suggest to get things back on track?

        Did you even watch the video at the bottom, by the black gentleman ?? I think he spoke a lot of truth. Personally, I felt like this ad could pass for a BLM ad. It is doing nothing but feeding fear and anger into the community, and evidently you are swallowing the whole ” Oh poor me, I’m black ” crap that they spew….. Shame on Proctor & Gamble, and shame on YOU Gregory.

    August 1, 2017 at 2:29 pm

    The ad they SHOULD have run is “the talk” warning their children to fear young black men. For every unjustified cop-killing of a black, there are 300 blacks killed by other blacks. Over half the murders in America are committed by blacks — almost all young males.

    Oh, BTW, black police officers fire their guns three times more frequently than non-black officers.

    Procter and Gamble you are the problem. Being none white I made a good living with hard work. So your community service ad does not measure up to reality. If you are so concerned about the cultural inequality of the Black people, why are you killing them by introducing the cancer causing chemical Glysophate in your product?
    Someone should start a class action suit against you for poisoning your product users. And indangering the environment.

    So I can expect to see a commercial on how Christians and Jews are infidels in the eyes of Islam. Christians and Jews are to be killed by Radical Muslims Little Children are to be raped and tortured even girls of their own religion and little boys of their own religion.
    We had come so far and their were no race wars until Obama and his cronies started that junk.

    I am really upset about you commercial. I think you have just kicked racism into high gear for more hate, violence and crimes. Instead of working for all people getting along no matter what race, gender or religion, you have just put a STOP to that and have given the OK to hate. I for one will stop buying your products (and I use a lot of them) until you make some kind of retraction of this racist commercial. I know my boycott alone will not hurt your company but I am sure more people across the nation will join in. SHAME ON YOU.

Wait, didn’t we have a black President, do we not have black Senators and representatives, Even black women. black Generals not to mention so many black high ranking officers and NCO’s??????? how can you still say that it is so flippin hard to do?? It is called an education. Knowledge breaks all barriers. If you don’t get that then of course you work in a ded end job. But that knows no color as anyone without some kind of formal education works in dead end jobs. Good grief people grow up.

      So, you are outraged by this video? Did it reveal to you that the utopia you have built around yourself is not reality? This is not meant to insult us. It is meant to open your eyes. Look around. See what these people see daily. You look at the world through your privilege and you don’t see that each day, a black man in a three-piece suit is trying to get a taxi that speeds past him to pick up the man in blue jeans that just walked up to the curb. You don’t see the salesperson that follows the black customer through the store, though the .person has the money to buy and sell the salesperson. You don’t see the frown on the faces at the fast food restaurant when the black mother walks up to the counter or hear the edge in the request to be of service. Open your eyes. Look for what is shown and spoken of in this video. Be aware. Call our folks on their behavior when it happens,

We need someone who will promote positive ideas and messages to our young people, regardless of the color of their skin. This goes way beyond the boundaries of what is appropriate and I find it slanders those who respect all people and there are many. It hurts law enforcement officers to see a message that is portrayed in this ad, in this way and instill fear and hate toward all law enforcement. This is race baiting in the worst possible way and you are replaceable. I hope you see a sharp decline in the nuber of products you sell as a result of this ad.

    Racism will continue on both sides as long as these misconceptions are drilled into the black community. As long as the black community sees itself as being different and separated from society, they will be. The root of this problem is the failure to assimilate into America despite the many efforts to help them get there. The steadfast clinging to the “victim” role as a sense of identity is the only thing that holds them back. Tyler Perry and Oprah Winfrey have done more damage to the black community than any of the good they may have done. Instead of promoting education and advancement and integration into society, the underlying current in their work is to weave the thread of the past (150 years ago) into every one of their films while defining clear lines which the black community should never cross. The only thing holding the black community back is the black community. Proctor and Gamble are whores and should be ashamed of themselves!

  35. Wendi Thygesen

    August 1, 2017 at 3:55 pm

    You will never be empowered when you play the victim. Our country was doing so great when it came to racism. No one cared about mixed race couples anymore and America elected our first black President. He had the opportunity to completely end the racial divide. Instead he race baited at every opportunity and set things back 50 years. He created an atmosphere of hate and continually stirred the pot. I refuse to be part of it and ads like this make me sick. Shame on you Proctor and Gamble for being part of the problem instead of the solution.

We are HUMANS, no one is a pure race, no one is not connected. This is disgusting and I will be boycotting P&G products and sharing this commercial everywhere asking that my fellow humans spread it to stop the hateful dividing message.

  38. Rose Saxtib

    August 1, 2017 at 4:29 pm

    I definitely agree that Proctor and Gamble should never have made an ad such as this. However, I cannot say that the scenarios portrayed are not realistic. To say that the only time you have heard the statement, “You have to work twice as hard” is in commercials. I have to ask, what world did you grow up in? I’ve heard it all of my life. You don’t have to hear it. It’s obvious. Look at what just happened with the country’s first African American POTUS. He worked very hard as our first African American POTUS and he still did not receive the proper respect he deserve. They are at this present moment trying to erase his presidency altogether. I understand that you are speaking of your experience. However, just because you didn’t experience these things doesn’t mean that others did not. Again, I agree, Proctor and Gamble should not be making ads as such, however, please don’ say the scenarios presented are unrealistic because they are.

  39. Tammy Holt

    August 1, 2017 at 4:33 pm

    • Fost

      August 2, 2017 at 9:35 am

      If you are this enraged over an ad that depicts truth then you my friend and every other person commenting with thoughts similar to yours are in fact racist. The truth hurts. I mean how dare commercials begin to reflect the feelings of people other than white. Just because you can’t relate to it doesn’t make it racist, a lie, or propaganda.

      Nevertheless, if you feel the need to overlook the message and attempt to cry racism go ahead and boycott…they won’t lose any sleep and the ad won’t be retracted.

    • rach

      August 2, 2017 at 2:14 pm

      Damon Jones is Black, or if you want to be PC, African American. That’s why Proctor n Gamble took the gamble and ran with all these ads, must have been a story from him growing up, or maybe a friend, or somebody, or else it was firestormed? Who knows, but they can run with it due to him being in charge of it, really pretty smart of them, put a young black male in charge of it and what could go wrong? Right? No Black person would EVER be offended, after all it’s coming from one of them. How could it be to just get “their money?” DUH

      The ad never said all whites are racist.

      But let’s put this in numerical perspective.

      Whites outnumber blacks in this country five to one. If only one in five whites were racist towards blacks (consciously or subconsciously), that would be enough to theoretically impact every black in this country.

      We don’t all have the same experiences.

    IT IS WHAT IT IS because itzallconnected.

    KNOW THY SELF was carved into stone by the Ancient Egyptians as both a lesson, and a reminder. Integrity is what holds (y)our mind, (y)our health, (y)our life, and every kind of community [society] together. Before you fan the wind beneath (y)our wings, learn which way is up. Capitalism is as evil as spelling live backwards. Even diabolical genius must be sustainable. In all ways, protecting the credo of [white], male supremacy has been more important than human decency, truth and justice.

    If it wasn’t so tragic, it would be hilarious. Life was everlasting long before “the church” found a way to package, and sell “it.” Intension is to (y)our spirit what bone marrow is to (y)our skeleton. If (y)our belief system supports any kind of slavery [mental, physical, doctrinal], (y)our evangelical, religious, mindset is still immoral. There is no escaping (y)ourSelf. Every blind-dead, war-like, violent, community [society] that refuses to balance the scales of justice while “decriminalizing injustice” must be ostracized.

    Obviously, there must be a WHITE ONLY sign on the gates of every hole-in-hole. The “original sin” is still a belief that any One, or any thing, can “act-U-ally” be made separated from The All-of-it. The belief in “white [male] supremacy” has reduced the majority of pale-skinned [white and imitation white] people to living lies who have chosen to die in The Lie.

    Some “things” must be absorbed. An expanded consciousness “can-knot” be stolen, imitated, transferred, denied, or destroyed. “It” can only be masked, or “whited out” by The Blind Dead who see what they want to see and hear what they are supposed to already know.

    We are all a wonder-full part of The All-of-it. We come from KnowThing. We return to KnowThing. KnowThing lasts forever.

    Bravo, P&G. Unfortunately, judging from the posted comments, people live in a bubble. This conversation between Black parents and their children has been going on for generations. That all are in denial that this NEEDS to happen is what is shocking. Perhaps the better question is, my fellow Americans: Why would or should a parent have to have such a talk in the first place? Yes, you may choose to see it in ways that make you feel comfortable, but that is NOT how it is. As IF P&G are responsible for the entrenched racism in our society. Let’s begin with slavery, shall we, and just follow the timeline. I think you shall see, right up to Trump’s birtherism, it is alive and well. Unfortunately, we still have to have this talk with our children. Point is, what talk are you having with your’s, my sisters and brothers?

    Au contraire…my conservative brothers and sisters who think that this a racist commercial…!!!

    This P&G ad finally engages in a conversation about race in America that we never see. And it’s long overdue…!!!

    Whether P&G are ultimately trying to sell their products to the African American Community is secondary to the statement that this commercial is telling us all that we need to engage in real conversations about the perspective of race relations from the eyes of African American.

    Most of white America never…ever…see or hear this point of view from the African American Community…!!!

    And thus their perspective (white people) is so skewed because they have no idea what oppression and the effects of racism have on African Americans because they never see this reverse view of life…!!!

    Please take a look at the ad and then make your comments based in fact…truth…and then share your views and experiences to keep an open dialogue that is so much needed in today’s racists society…!!!

You’ve never had family members gunned down for praying in a church (and I’m an atheist). You’re crying that you had nothing to do with that.

    Can I ask a simple question? How many of you have African American Friends….now how many of you have asked your FRIENDS have they had any of these conversations with their children? If you do you will find out that we have been having these conversations with our children for YEARS. Just because you dont have to have these conversations doesnt mean they dont happen. I know it might be hard for some of you to understand but unfortunately these are the conversations that we have with our children. How many of you were told you were pretty for a “white” girl…or was you just told you were pretty? How many of you have to explain what a NIGGER is to your child. Oh and please dont say it doesnt happen because just 3 years ago I had to explain to my child who was called that nasty word on the playground. Do you not see the news where African Americans are being gunned down and killed in the streets behind traffic stops. Now you can say what you want but NO ONE should have to be afraid of being pulled over for a broken tail light but WE as parents are afraid. Because it has been proven over and over again that even if you obey the cops, and you do as you are told – you can still be shot and killed for no reason. We have these conversations with our children because we need them to understand that we are sorry but the playing field is not always EVEN, FAIR, or JUST.

    Im sorry if it is hard for you to hear but these are the truth of the matter….they are just telling you what we have done since forever…and will continue to do to make sure our children know they are loved, beautiful, and we expect the BEST out of them no matter if the playing field is fair or not. Get out there and work HARD, and come home safe.

    No, I do not believe that the Proctor & Gamble video is merely a ‘marketing’ ploy.
    I understand and believe that you have not had anyone give you “the talk.” This could be for many reasons, but if you grew up in ‘the hood’ then perhaps you did not have as many interactions with whites as a black kid who grew up in the suburbs.
    The fact that you never went to summer camp suggests to me that perhaps you never learned to accept and appreciate points of view other than your own. Activities like camp provide children with an opportunity to understand others and therefore develop survival techniques and coping mechanisms when relationships become unpleasant.
    As for Proctor and Gambles video, I did not come away from it feeling as though I was being sold some hair products, nor did I feel black men and the ‘nuclear’ black family was being diminished because the video showed more black mothers and only one black father.
    What I took away from the Proctor & Gamble video is THE FINAL STATEMENT, that if we open up and talk about the ‘elephant in the room’ i.e.,covert & overt racism which still exists in 2017, that perhaps one day WE WON’T HAVE TO EVER HAVE “THE TALK” AGAIN.

    Actually, it took some real stones for P&G to come out with this ad, and place themselves on the right side of history, if not public opinion. They are to be applauded for facing the issue this squarely. It is not race-baiting at all; it is piercing commentary on a real situation.

Your ignorant comments put your bigotry and racism on full display for the rest of the world.

  72. Yolanda Lyons

    August 1, 2017 at 6:48 pm

    Every one of you who have commented have missed the point. P&G’s wonderful video doesn’t say that these things are going to happen to black children – these things HAVE happened to black children. If you are so racist (and almost every comment shows it) that you can’t even accept the truth about what other races must live with, then there is no hope for the white race. We are eating ourselves up from the inside, and we should make ourselves extinct within the next ten years. Good job of bigotry, people! And P&G, it is a great video. Thank you for making it so that we can discover all of “our kind” who live under rocks.

    Why are white people so scared of black empowerment. Why are we so blind to the effects of our own privilege. We are all brothers and sisters here on Earth. We should start acting like it, and the first step to that is to truly listen to each other.

  75. Mary Wendling

    August 1, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    Thiose who deny the truth are either not paying attention or have led a very sheltered life. As a white woman of 69, and I remember how it was for people of color in the 50s and what it took to get a scintilla of respect and equal opportunity beginning in the 60s…and they are still waiting.

    P&G threw some light on the subject, and some of the comments above want it to be extinguished just so they can feel good about themselves. Implying that an educated, qualified Black man got a high-paying job due to affirmative action, or proves racism does not exist, is in itself racism.

    Would anyone of you be willing to change the color of your skin? If your answer is “no”, I rest my case.

    This is the black reality has been for decades. Sadly those of you do not understand this is the reason that this is necessary. You’re getting a glimpse into what we have to tell our children because of your unbridled prejudice. I have told my daughter if she is ever pulled over, just agree and comply. We will fight it in court. I have corrected men and women that say I am pretty for a black girl. No, I am pretty period. There are no qualifiers. I have had to work twice as hard to be considered half as good. The same people on this thread that are bitching about this beautiful commercial are the same ones that are guilty of the actions described. Open your eyes and ears, see and listen. These are the conversations that we have to have with our children because of people like you.

    This is no propaganda, this is the ABSOLUTE TRUTH in the world in which WE live and just because YOU don’t have to deal with it in your white skin doesn’t mean WE don’t.

    did anyone actually LOOK at this without looking to be offended? nowhere does it say ALL WHITE PEOPLE ALL COPS ARE BAD. i am so sick of this crap…… on all sides….. being offended over things that are not offensive. and making up stuff just to have something to bitch and complain about. my posting to p& g facebook page: dear p&g. as a person of a family of mixed races – including white, i applaud you commercial. the backlash you are getting comes from people who either did not pay attention or who just want to be mad at someone…. anyone..and needs an outlet. no your commercial did not say all white people were bad or that all cops were bad… it did show however the conversations a black parent has with their child. not every white person says “for a black girl you’re kinda cute” but you run into that. i had it said to me by a co-workers husband and it was 2000. not all cops are bad and will pull you over but there are some that are, they will pull you over and theses days hurt, kill you and unfortunately get away with it. the good police need to police themselves and get rid of the bad ones so that particular talk need not happen any longer. until then a parent would be remiss not to instruct and prepare their child as to what to do while praying these things are never said or done to them. your commercial was NOT anti-white, anti-cop. it WAS anti-ignorant people who say and do foolish, stupid and or malicious things because of bigotry. in fact i have heard a few white parents in small towns in tx & okla and in poorer white neighborhoods give THE COP TALK to their kids. they were not anti-white or anti-cop….. just anti bad cop. i hope people stop and really look and listen to what you were trying to say and that this boycott some are calling for does not happen. the really sad part or rather the other sad part is that in reading responses to your ad. some……SOME people are saying some of the nastiest bigoted, hateful things imaginable. so much for getting to MLK’s dream

    I had The Talk. It was a good talk.

    My cousins in particular, they are going to have to have The Talk with their kids soon, and the stakes are just as high as a black kid in Chicago as my cousins’ kids are American Indian living in Arizona. Getting pulled over and quizzed is a problem for Native Americans in the Southwest, so much so tribes are considering issuing special identification cards so people born in this country don’t get evidence planted on them by the police, press-ganged into buses, and driven over the border.

    I spent part of my childhood in Tennessee in the Eighties. My Asian friend’s parents got death threats; they drove their son, my friend, over the bridge into another State every day so their child could have a safe day in school. My black friends there learned in classrooms with no windows and almost no AC; one floor up, the white kids and ‘Gifted & Talented’ got sunshine and air conditioning.

    The Talk is real because it’s really needed, and not just for black people to their sons and daughters.

    Racism in this country has long been an institution, something a person could make a career and a good living off of. At least P&G is doing so from the view of one of the victims this time instead of one of the benificaries.

    Postsript: about this ad, and about the state of conservatism in general, it would behoove the activist conservative to self-assess, to “read the tea leaves” as it were; the population of Christian conservatives is shrinking; the population of Southern conservatives is shrinking; the population of evangelicals who vote is not growing; the population of mixed conservatives like me, however –people who believe in wise spending but staying out of a woman’s right to body self-determination, who believe a truly small government stands in no transgender person’s way to serve in our Armed Forces– is growing.

    They are teaching EMPATHY – to understand what it is like to be a mother or a father or even a child in an environment where not only did hatered and violence exist but it continues to exist to varying degrees. And to call it racism is sheer ignorance. Sadly, the entire point of the video is to try to counteract the ignorance – to allow you an emotional insight into the lives of people different then you. Simply because you didn’t live it yourself does not mean it does not exist.

We are all supposed to IGNORE the fact that there is at LEAST 2-3 WHITE WOMEN RAPED AND MURDERED ALONG WITH THEIR MEN EVERY DAY IN THIS COUNTRY AND THOSE COMMITTING THESE ACTS OF VIOLENCE ARE BLACK!!! BUT YET THERE IS NO RECORD OF ANY RAPES AND MURDERS BEING COMMITED AGAINST BLACKS BY WHITES LIKE THESE LYING A-HOLES CLAIM!!! The LIBERALS THAT ARE SPREADING THESE LIES ARE JUST AS MUCH AT FAULT AS THE SCUM COMMITTING THESE CRIMES, for if these A-HOLES were not race baiting and LYING about these CRIMES AGAINST BLACKS COMMITTED BY WHITES THAT THERE JUST SEEMS TO BE ZERO EVIDENCE OF, NO BODIES, NO SCREAMING MOTHERS BECAUSE THEIR DAUGHTERS WERE RAPED, THE ONLY ONES YOU ARE HEARING ABOUT ARE THE ONES THAT THE SCUMBAGS ARE COMMITTING AND THEY AINT WHITE, ONLY THE VICTIMS ARE AND THEIR NEWS TRIES TO KEEP THEM UNDER WRAPS!!!! I say that NO WHITE PERSON SHOULD EVER BUY THEIR PRODUCTS AGAIN BUT THE LIBERAL LEFTISTS DEMOCRATIC MENTALLY DERANGED MORONS WONT FOLLOW SUIT FOR ITS THEIR ACTIONS THAT ACTUALLY FOLLOWS THIS TRAIN OF IGNORANCE!!!! Liberalism= The DISEASE THAT INFECTS ONLY THE SIMPLE MINDED PEOPLE OF THIS PLANET, THOSE WITHOUT THE ABILITY THE PROCESS FACTS AND TRUTH FOR THE sATANIC IDEOLOGIES OF LIBERALISM BLOCKS ALL ABILITY TO COMPREHEND TRUTH AND FACT, you will find that these people also do not have the facilities to comprehend anything close to what is actually MORAL AND RIGHT or DISGUSTING AND WRONG, the DISEASE THEY CARRY BLOCKS ALL COMPREHENSION OF RIGHT AND WRONG CONVINCING THEM THAT EVERYTHING IS JUST AND MORAL IF YOU BELIEVE IT TO BE!!!!!

    Most of the sentient population understands that Black parents, by love and necessity must prepare their children for the realities of life.
    Most of these posts confirm these parents concerns.

Did P&G make the ad to sell their products to people of color..? I don’t think so. Proctor & Gamble took a chance on alienating shameless white people like the ones here, who say they will now boycott them. I still say “Good for them”!

    August 1, 2017 at 8:20 pm

    Obviously I’m in the minority here, despite being white myself.

    The Talk is something that my friends of color do ALL THE TIME with their own kids. It’s necessary, given the statistics of African-American men in prison for relatively minor offenses, the inequal murder of African-Americans by police, and the very real bias that exists DESPITE OUR FERVENT WISHES TO THE CONTRARY.

    I, for one, would LOVE to live in a country where equality was truly achieved, and where race didn’t enter into the equation.

    We aren’t there yet.

    And for those of you who are so angry about this ad, so disgusted with the truths it is showing, do yourself a favor: look in the mirror.

    If your skin color is white, then you can’t know what our brothers and sisters of color live with.

    It’s a life that they experience, and we do not. To insist that it is more equitable than reality is a form of self-delusion.

    I’m a black mid 40ish conservative black woman, I voted Republican this last election. I would like to ask that you take the video with grain of salt and look at it from a perspective not your own. As I watched the video, I teared up because I have said everything to my 18 year old son that was mentioned in the video. From telling him he mattered when he would be called names in an catholic elementary school, and questioning him when he was in the 4th grade and it was parent night, why his self-drawn picture had blue eyes… instead of brown. And feeling the anxiety of every night this 6ft black kid gets in his car to go to the store, I have to ask…. where is your id? Don’t wear that while driving, and going over what to do in front of police officers. It really hit me hard when he was around 15 and getting taller and he told me, “people don’t smile at me anymore in the store the way they used to when I was younger” … now they walk to the other side or get away from me… why is that? I’m the same kid… or when he came home from playing basketball and was walking down to the church and told me a police car followed him slowly down the street…. these thing break your heart, because it isn’t fair… but it is most definitely why we have to have “The Talk” in our families. I can remember some over 30 years ago being on a school bus and being called the “N” word for miles and looking at the bus driver who locked eyes with mine in the rear view mirror and said nothing. That day broke me, because as the adult he should have come to my defense and he did not… I left that bus broken that day. So don’t get upset please. It’s not race baiting… its a reality for many of us. Thank you

Look at everything that been going on for years around you, it really is not the people it the leaders that caused this, we did not have it bad passed 9 years ago. we all got along well some did not. You are not God’s children until we love each other, Stop what your doing and think about the wrong, how and when and why this is happening.I do hope we can come as 1 and live,love,honor as we are Americans needs to stand together as number 1 as americans, try smiling and helping those that need help. we need to be on god’s side the bad and evil side.

My family as suffered through racism in the country for generations and I so glad that the conversation is being had openly. Back in the late 60’s & 70’s people were talking very openly about race, but you don’t want to hear about it. That’s fine, but not talking about doesn’t make the problem disappear for us.

    When you see the world from only 1 place how can you expect anything but the above comments. The facts are unless you have to look your children in the face and have to explain why they are call the n-word, told they are ugly, how they can and will be stopped by the police for no reason, told they will not be able to do something because of their race or the community they live in, etc then you should speak! I know you people want to talk about post-racial America but as some of you mentioned STATS, the reality is many people of color with the same if not better grades, work experience etc are passed over because they are scrutinized more harshly. In stead of spending your time crying about how this society marginalize people of color, woman, the LGBTQ community why not show some empathy. It is finny to me in a country that claims they are Christian how the most un-Jesus like comments are stated.

People are too egotistical and won’t admit they are wrong. The white points fingers, the back point fingers and all are saying that it isn’t right. Stop pointing fingers and treating others without respect, and yes it isn’t right. I don’t understand why this hatred still exhists but it is up to us to stop it without prejudice. So Simple and yet so hard.

    First of all my granddaughter went to a camp and those white girls tried to make her feel she was not wanted. Out of the group one white girl did come over and began to connect with my granddaughter and she told that white girl she had a right to be there and the girl agreed and they hung out until the camp was over. In my experience my father who is from Nassau so we had an Island upbringing and my dad preached to us that we had to beat the white man at his own game. His daily prayer to us was GET YOUR EDUCATION! YOU HAVE TO WORK HARDER THAN WHITES TO GET AHEAD! Every body on my block in North Philadelphia were on their children to do better. And we were called the N word and my parents did deal with that and we did have that talk. And I had the talk with my sons so they would come home alive.

    This is just wrong and this is promoting Racist views. This is disgusting to push that whites say blacks are not just as smart and many equally smarter and tries to sell the racist views against police. I have never felt racist but all this crap is changing that. ANYONE that pushes these views is a racist against whites. I have NEVER been rude or treated anyone different because they were black. Will boycott P&G products for sure.

    I ABSOLUTELY loved it. ITS Real. I have had that same talk & Still do every time they come home — with my 2 as they headed from Chocolate City Ward 8 WASH DC to North Carolina & Florida to attend college and serve in the Navy. Not one damn thing racist about this. THIS IS REALITY FOR US.

    If you Ain’t having this talk with your black & upcoming queens and kings something wrong with you. My mother told my son when he headed to Florida 4 years ago for the Navy and to attend school on his GI BILL the same thing & Added — make sure you display your Navy license plate and U.S. Navy ensigns in the brand new Altima car you paid for after being deployed to sea for 4 years combating ISIS & serving your country. She didn’t want him profiled. She didn’t want him to be Trayvon Martin. She didn’t want him shot – driving while black.

      Good for you Bob! I don’t understand the “uprising”! It seems to me the majority of the comments are from white people … who have no clue (which is sad). I am not black ibut i do empathize with the reality that still in 2017 there is a lot of discrimination going on… one race holier than thou. However, my belief is we are all brothers and sisters … color or religious beliefs are not a factor. We TEACH prejudice/children are not born with it.

      BOB, you are so right…they have never been on the receiving end nor have empathy. They think all of this is made up. I’ve been called the N word to my face a year ago. My son, who is in a catholic school was just told he was too dark and another black child was told that black people smell. This is all coming from the home. Hopefully P&G’s commercial cause parents to teach their children to be kind to everyone.

      That is the best comment I have heard here so far. I want to give the negative commenters the benefit of the doubt, but given it is 2017 I find it impossible. I watch what my African American friends go through on a daily basis. If my inspection is up on my car, because I was waiting for a pay check, I get a warning, they have their car taken. If white kids are caught drinking in the park, they get chased and warned, African American kids get beaten, and arrested for doing the same thing. There is a double standard, I witness it everyday. However, never loose sight of why that double standard is there. It is to keep the poor, white, black, asian, and latino fighting one another instead of fighting the people forcing them to fight over table scraps. Look at all the poor idiots who voted for Trump, even after he was caught lying. The same is true for the people who voted for Hilary, even though she has done nothing but hurt the poor. Everything in that video was true, and whats sad is one day that will apply to all the poor.

    This ad is a very honest portrayal of the talks the majority of black parents have with their children, I know because many of my friends have had to have it with their children. Obviously from the comments on this page, it is sorely needed since everyone here seems to think it is racist, well it is not, it is the truth and if you think it is racist then you are part of the problem.

    I find it very interesting that each of you are so upset about someone else’s experiences with race in this country. No one called you out and to deny the experiences of a whole race of people because it makes you uncomfortable is the definition of privilege. This country does have a racist history and it was shown through a historical context. No black mother ever sat you down as a child and told what you might face, but many of my peers and family members have had the conversation. I grew up with mostly non-black (majority white) peers in high school, but my father still sat me down and had “the talk”. As soon as my best friend’s dad found out that she had feelings for me, I quickly got moved from being just a friend of the family to a “nigger” and her own father and brother (my classmate) started calling her nigger lover. THESE are real experiences and they still happen. That was just in 1997 – not that long ago. I had to go to school and look at the dude I thought was my friend knowing he was just calling me a nigger at home. I had to see her dad at school events and pretend not to be upset and show him respect knowing the nasty things he said about me. My father didn’t teach me to be a racist, but he certainly taught me about racism. When my white friends and their family started treating me differently, I didn’t treat them any differently.

    The bigotry and racism in this country is so out of control that the negative stereotypes have become self reinforcing. Proctor and Gamble was brave to point out the handicap under which black people must live. Just look through the comments you will not see constructive criticism just vitriolic hatred.
    Some of us are ready to defend the concept of equality under the law and will stand ready with video camera in hand to put anyone who thinks otherwise under the spotlight.

      I was reading the comments and it seems white folks are really pissed off at their racism and police stereo-typing being put on blast. They should be pissed that it exists but since they’re clearly (from their comments) part of the hatred and racism that are the lifeblood of this country, I am not surprised. Must have someone to hate or to make you feel good about yourself? Any parent who DOESN’T have a similar talk with their child(ren) is sadly lacking in preparing them for the real (racist to the extreme) world.

Unfortunately many want to turn a blind eye to the racial inequities that continue to exist in our society. When these individuals are hit with it, for many it’s devastating!

THIS IS OUR LIFE ON A DAILY BASIS. Most of you may call this commercial racist but this is the most real I’ve seen in a long time. I have lived through some of the most hateful things and this commercial is right on. For those of you who are upset, ask yourself why you are upset. These people have tackled a truth and is getting crucified for it. There is a side of the coin you have not bothered to turn over and it is and has been destroying this country for decades before P&G even came on the scene.

      If this video was depicting white parents warning their kids about the possibility of being robbed or attacked by black people, BLM would be protesting and there would be riots. But because its against white people its fine. Right? Instead of making your lives better, you would rather whine about the past and blame “whitey” for all your failures. I never oppressed any race of people. But I’m supposed to feel guilty? So sad that parents are teaching their children to hate. Hope it works out for them…

    The ad speaks the truth. It is true we have to tell our children how to interact with the police – even though the police are the ones who are supposed to be professionally trained. Then they are able to use the BS excuse they are afraid. If they are such cowards, they need to find a new line of work!!!!!!!

    For those of you who accuse blacks of being race-baiters. I have one solution for you – stop taking the bait! Any fair-minded person would not even see people standing up for themselves as baiting.

    I wish race was not an issue in this country, but it is, and sadly, always will be because there will always be hateful and bigoted people. I do not think all white people are like that. I have some white friends.

  142. Fred Dickinson

    August 2, 2017 at 12:02 am

    This ad simply describes the white-centered, scrutinizing, oppressive and often violent culture black people deal with daily. We white people do not face the same struggles. So many white people dont see it because they have the most to lose from dismantling white supremacy. It’s easier to say “we all have the same opportunity” but the harsh reality is we don’t. Time we wake up white people!

    I’m a white guy. White as white can be. Number of times either of my parents told me black people weren’t as good as whites? Zero. Number of times my parents told me that some races are better than others? Zero. Or that whites are somehow more entitled? Zero. Number of times in my life I felt like I was entitled to anything? Zero. In fact, my parents reminded me frequently that I was lucky, blessed and undeserving. Likewise, they explained that life is often unfair to others, through no fault of their own. I feel no racial pride and I feel no racial shame. I certainly regret the bad things that have happened in America and try to promote what’s best about America. I don’t want credit for anything I didn’t earn, and I don’t want blame for any crime I didn’t commit. I try to put myself in the shoes of other people and imagine how it might feel to have a burden laid on me because of my color. I don’t think black folks should stand for mistreatment. And while blacks and whites have NOT been equal throughout our history, I still see no reason why whites should carry a collective burden for the misdeeds of our ancestors. We all owe it to our fellow man to be fair minded and to try to rise above any negative negative feelings we may have. End of rant.

    This commercial accurately depicts conversations that I wish were not necessary in modern day America. But they are otherwise our black children will think they will be treated the same way for doing the same things the white children do. It’s not against white children or white families, but against a system/institution in place that promotes one group of people and demeans another.

    People don’t like seeing the truth. Until you live life as a black person or any other minority them you will never understand. There was nothing racist at all about this commercial. A mother reminding her daughter she isn’t just beautiful because of the color of her skin but, she is beautiful period. is not racist at all it is the truth. You never hear anyone tell a white child that they are pretty for a white child. Or a mother reminding her child that she just want them to come home safe and sound is not racist. Take the blinders off. Stop acting like this stuff doesn’t happen because you know as well as I know that it does. This world can’t be healed of racism if people can’t look the problem straight in the face….
    THANK YOU, PROCTOR AND GAMBLE…..I SUPPORT YOU FULLY!!

      i agree – it ain’t doing nothing but telling the truth – let’s quit acting like we don’t have this conversation – we should – it’s not victimizing – it just states we are targeted and these young kids need to know that – i had this conversation with my son cause he had a lot a friends some of them white and i had to tell him that he can’t do what the white kids do and get away with it like they do….he told me when he was around 20 that he remembered what i had said and found it to be true…so i don’t understand what these people are complaining about – and i thought the ceo or owner of procter and gamble is black!

      Their message has nothing to do with their products, which means they are playing politics. And who plays politics in commercials? The left. We are so close to the end of flesh existence, and it is clear that the one third who rebelled against good are here now, because they are so evil in their hearts. We should be teaching our children to love God, and when you do, you tend to love His creation.

      August 2, 2017 at 10:43 pm

      You are right. People are not seeing the message. Many black Americans have experienced similar moments included in the video. My students have as well. It is always the people that point out racism that are accused of being racist. People seem to forget that the events of the 60s actually happened, and that racism is alive and present in the lives of many, from their behavior to their perceptions.

      This is the argument that white people make: point out racism make one racist against whites. What about the people who are really affected by racism?

      These people CANNOT see the message clearly as right wing sites like this one push lying propaganda at them all day every day until they are incapable of accepting the TRUTH when they see it.

      This video addresses the REALITY of everyday life for black people as it IS NOW and HAS BEEN for centuries in the USA.

      These snowflakes cannot cope with the situation as it is so retreat into a fantasy world of white privilege and block out any message which does not fit in with their confirmation bias. I doubt any of them has ever experienced racism or would recognise it in their everyday lives as they are so used to casual racism that they simply do not see it.

      Btw I am white, heterosexual, have a 35 year marriage, 4 kids and I have worked every day (no sick days or welfare EVER) for 42 years. I support minorities because they NEED support, and that includes women, POC and LGBQT.

WE ARE BEING KILLED AT A FAST RATE. PLACED IN PRISON.. ETC . KILLING OUR SEED, TO CONTROL OUR GROWTH, TO BE MORE PEOPLE OF COLOR IN LESS THAN 50 YRS TO BE THE MAJORITY, INSTEAD OF THE MINORITY.

    Why does this video bother people? This is not a racist video. If you feel it is, then you do not know the definition of racism. This is reality for many black people and their families in the world today. Yes racism exist and it is alive and growing. Some people believe that if we don’t talk about it, it’s just goes away. No that’s how it gets ignored.
    Racism is real and not talking about it, pretending it isn’t happening isn’t going to make it go away!. So now people talk about boycotting P&G… for what? For showing a video about what many black people think and face every day of their lives?
    And No this is not race baiting, it’s not encouraging victimization, because it’s real. And no it is not creating hate because the hate is already here.
    You don’t end racism by handing out coupons to P&G products as someone suggested, nor does it help anyone to list statistics of how many blacks versus whites commit crimes(by the way that is a prime example of someone who is racist). You end racism by first admitting it exists and stop trying to hide it away. Then you encourage people to treat each other the same way, with respect.
    If this video bothered you, ask yourself why.

    You people come from an ancestry of savages who enslaved, terrorized, tortured, raped and murdered a group for people for centuries. You are the direct beneficiaries of the brutality that was used to build this nation. Once the cotton was picked you no longer needed the blacks, and separated from them but claimed them to be equal to you. And Jim Crowed the heck out of them and continued to kill and torture as they fought for real freedom! It wasn’t but some 50 years ago that you were finally made to integrate with them. And in those 50 short years, an entire race of people, whom you ravaged for centuries, should have their stuff together? You people sicken me! How dare you be so apathetic! You suck!

    I’m just for clarity… You guys want to boycott because the company is having a my black is beautiful campaign and you all find it racist because it focuses on actual conversations black parents have with their black children about actual things black people experience.but you all aren’t racist even though the adjective “black” appears to be your only issue with the my black is beautiful campaign…does that about sum it up?

    August 2, 2017 at 2:42 am

    Words said to hurt come in many different spellings. Cracker, honky, fatboy, Hippo, white trash, and many, many more. I worked in a school in South Texas and I was one of six whites working in an all black school. All of the blacks there called each other the same word this ad is talking about. The principle was a minister in his church and he would sometimes ask the teachers “What are you up to today sweet you Mother F*****g N****r? I hated working where this type of appalling language and hatred was allowed. Even in black songs and movies, you hear them calling each other the “N” word. Can’t we please just stop all of this and be a peace with just being humans?!

    August 2, 2017 at 2:46 am

    August 2, 2017 at 2:51 am

    If you think it is racist to want to help people to understand someone else’s experience, YOU are the problem. This commercial touched me as a human being who recognizes that not everyone has the same experiences in life. If you have a problem with it, it says something about you.

  173. TheGenPublicSucks

    August 2, 2017 at 2:52 am

    More than likely the lot of you that are calling P & G “racist” are folks who are WHOLLY UNQUALIFIED to even SPEAK about whether racism exists because your SKIN COLOR will prevent you from EVER experiencing the NEGATIVE EFFECTS of it…unless of course you move to a country in AFRICA or somewhere else in the Middle East. Wow! Let’s all claim it DOESN’T EXIST because it MAKES SOME OF US LOOK BAD. Black on black crime “makes me look bad” in the eyes of those who lump us all together, but you’ll NEVER hear me deny it’s existence or place blame elsewhere, because that would just be STUPID when I can SEE IT HAPPENING, DAILY! Racism happens also people, accept it! But no, some of you will go to your deathbeds DENYING IT because it makes y’all LOOK BAD, right??? Asinine thinking at it’s WORST. Sit down, STFU and let the ADULTS among us have the REAL, NECESSARY conversations. And BTW, most productive people with melanin are too busy working hard to make a way for their families to even CONSIDER playing the so-called “race card” or play the so-called “victim”. Those phrases are typically bandied about by BIGOTS who don’t want to confront (and/or change) their BIGOTED WAYS and THINKING.

    A much better ad would be white kids and black kids doing what kids do – be friends. Playing ball, hanging out, parents dropping their kids and their friends off at the movie theater, riding their bikes, etc. Some of it wouldn’t have been done 50 years ago, but it’s not 50 years ago. How about this. One kid’s dog gets all muddy while they are all running through some woods, and a stream and a field and is a mess when they get home. Both kids get the hos and a bar of Proctor & Gamble soap an give the dog a bath while having water fights and squirting each other and having a great time. THAT’S what we need to see, not the bad time of years ago.

    Speaking as a conservative, I applaud this commercial. You should, too.

    The hypersensitivity on both sides is ridiculous, but that does not mean racism does not exist. If you cannot understand the bravery of this advertisement, of a mother telling her child that no matter what adversity you face, find a way to fight through it and triumph over it, then you are part of the problem and I would certainly not classify you as a true conservative. You obviously do not know what that word means.

    Privileged comments abound. No one cares about your pretend white concern. No one cares about your rose tinted atop perches perspectives. NO one cares about your white nervousness or tears. I’ve experienced every one of those scenarios in this commercial………..THEY’RE VALID. We don’t give a damn about your realizing it or not. It is our experience. Obviously not yours. Because you don’t experience the same doesn’t make it non existent. the paradigm and demographic shift is coming that’s why conservatives are against abortion and LEGAL aliens. Too late. Critical Mass has been achieved. You have the recessive gene. Now for every fact that I’ve stated here I’ll be labeled a racist. But guess what……..who cares what you think. Minorities are so over what your perception of being is.

  179. USMAMule

    August 2, 2017 at 3:11 am

    Whether you like it or not this IS the reality of the conversations black parents have to have with our children. Black girls DO have to be told that “you’re pretty for a black girl,” ISN’T a compliment – because it’s not. Black kids DO have to be told how to try and deal with the police so as to decrease their risk of being shot at the very least. Black parents worst fears for their teen drivers is NOT an “accident.” It is a run in with a cop like the one that killed Philado Castill, or Walter Scott, or Tamir Rice. And even if they aren’t shot, one of the most common ways for black children to end up in the system is simply by asserting their rights.

    You will get your “white commercial” when white folks have had to live with hundreds of years of official oppression and second class citizenship.

    But like I said, you don’t have to “like” that this is reality for us. But it doesn’t mean it’s NOT reality for us.

In next couple of years you won’t be able to know what race a lot of kids are with our melting pot.

    August 2, 2017 at 3:45 am

    This is sinsitive portrait of parental angst. The talk has occurred in black families for generations. It is a response to racism . It is not racist to protect your children and acknowledge the danger in the world. Yes, there are perils specific to black Americans perpetrated by institutional biases. If you are white don’t tell us what we say to each other, how much crime you think we commit. You don’t know us, our history, our struggles nor our triumphs. Instead make a pledge for equitable treatment under the law. Make a stand for fairness. Question your own attitudes and assumptions.

    My daughter was the only african American in her grade, constantly during this election she heard the word nigger being used. People used racial slurs I am a black Latina her father African American we are both American and so is she. But she was harassed called, @Africano Anericano had her food snatched from her and also sexually harassed by her peers. I advocated for her asked to meet with the school tittle 9 worker there was not one and there was nothing in the school handbook about discrimination or harassment. The school expelled the boy and suspended the girl involved in the incident but my daughter changed after being treated that way by her peers and staff ignored her when asking for help. I saw the commercial and I think sadly the talk is a part of our narrative. May not for many people commenting but it is for some of us. I have friends of all races and feel blessed they are all amazing people, however during our current social climate it is important to be aware that this issue exist for some people. The school handled the situation because we as parents were informed about our daughters right to safety and demanded action, however some parents are not. I think we need to have more conversations about this, and I am interested always in learning more about everyone and their experiences. I do not think it offensive but it is may be because I grew up poor and black and although law abiding, hobos student and a good citizen while growing up I was pulled over for walking at night in my college to see if I attended the school. Or because of many other incidents. I feel bad people feel offended and I did not see the comercial the same way, so I think it depends of our past experiences, ethnicity, and interactions with people of color.

Who gets an F on their report card in 2nd grade? THAT is not real. We went to summer camp. You do not have to have money to go to summer camp! You can go to Girl/Boy Scout camp for the summer. What is your occupation? You need to get out more and travel. I am from Boston. I went to summer camp every year. I did not live in low income housing. We lived in our own home. My parents were from Tennessee and moved to Boston to get better jobs. Maybe you should have left West Virginia to see more of the world. Everybody didn’t grow up with 1 parent. You sound really ignorant. This commercial will not make you go buy Head and Shoulders or any of their products Sure, you might keep buying what you are already buying. You do not sound like you have natural intelligence if you are trying to say that since you didn’t experience “The Talk” nobody else did.

    This does show a segment of our community, of which I have lived in several years in the past. It does show the parents programming the children with both negative opinions, and fear. Although, those things do happen, but other segments of our community push positives, and the children do a lot better when uplifted,than those that were filled with negative opinions.

    • Delesa Royal

      August 2, 2017 at 1:17 pm

      Ok, how would you have responded when the child told her mother that the woman in the store said “you’re pretty for a black girl”? Her mother simply said “you’re pretty period” I’ve been told this my whole life. I’m not making it up. People commenting here are obviously privileged beyond belief. Not in terms of having had a good life, I don’t know about your struggles, and you don’t know mine, but privileged to never have to consider any of the situations discussed in the ad. Why? Because these issues don’t present themselves in your lives because of your race! That does not mean they are not real. Denying that theses situations, or issues don’t exist DOES NOT HELP our conversations on race move forward with purpose and understanding. Also, why does someone always have to pull out the stats on black crime, and incarceration rates? (Make you feel better?)

      The negativity comes from the White folks to whom the black parents have to give this advise to their children about. I suppose their parents, community etc.., stereotyping Blacks as thugs, lazy, etc which encourages them to go out within their communities throughout their lives lashing hate and racism at black folks which is why black parents have to tell their children these things is not programming white children with both negative opinions and fear. while you can say in the same sentence while all those things do happen BUT…. does not make it comfortable and reassuring for us black parents.

    White people, listen to me. I am white, too. This ad is not overly dramatic. This is really what Black Americans face every day. There is no such thing as “reverse racism.” Black people ARE discriminated against. If you do not speak out against racism, then you are part of the problem. If you have Black friends…. not acquaintances….FRIENDS… ask them about the racism they have experienced, Then…. LISTEN to them. Please. I am praying for all of you.

    It seem to me that these comments prove the commercial.
    I’ve had these conversations with my sons because something happened, not because I anticipated them. The time someone called them nigger at their school; the time that we were at the park and someone yelled,”White Power”; the time that someone told my straight A gifted and talented boys that they must be fast and strong…they are the skinniest children in their classes.
    We are an educated family, and a fairly diverse neighborhood that I grew up in. Between my family and their dad’s family, we had 3 Ivy League bachelors, countless bachelors from other school, 6 Masters and 1 PhD. But, does that make it a worse for them to go through those situations if that wasn’t their background?

    I understand that it might be hard to understand that something awful happens without reason, but that doesn’t take away from the truth of this commercial.

  193. Gary

    August 2, 2017 at 4:42 am

    Dear Proctor and Gamble,
    Thanks to your total stupidity and EXTREME RACIAL BIAS, I will no longer purchase ANY of your products. Obviously your company is being run and controlled by the so-called “BLM” movement, and that is just fine with me. They might buy your products, although I suspect even THEY aren’t so stupid to recognize pandering, but as for me, not in this life or any other shall I ever buy another of your products. You people are despicable beyond description.

    You know, Lenin coined the term “useful idiots”. He had to have had people and companies like P&C in mind when he said that. This crap is the sort of thing that DIVIDES a nation.

        Where in this video did you see racism? What you actually saw, whether you realize it or not, were Black parents teaching their Black children how to survive in a racist society. They aren’t creating racism, they’re facing the ugly truth of a chronic racism that already exists. How is it possible that you can’t see that?

        Yes, we should, instead of “pretty for a black girl,” she should be told she is pretty at her own value. You just confirmed that ad is correct..

        What I get from this clip is that I never had to have that conversation with my child….but I am sure that there ere similar spoken between black families and sadly still are. Until ALL of Americas history is talked about and not hidden we will never heal. Slavery, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, Slavery is American History NOT Black History!! Over 300 years of it. It didn’t just go away. Even in college it was not hardly mentioned in my American History class. (?)

        Olga, please understand that racism is obviously wrong, but it exists in subtle, systematic ways that we are sometimes not aware of. Just as a parent of darker skin can help shield children from pain and danger by identifying the specific risks they may face, we who are born to greater privilege by being white can best help reduce those risks by acknowledging they exist. The enemy is not P&G or a parent who wants to shield a child from emotional and physical harm. The enemy is fear and misunderstanding. Let’s accept that we actually have to work together and communicate non-judgmentally to create a world in which each person is taken at their own value.

You announced yourself with your attack on the former president. You make our people look like what this video is exposing.

    This is history, but it’s not ALL of history. We don’t live in the 1950’s or 60’s any more. This ad will probably be seen by many who don’t know as being ALL of what it was like back then. Social Justice Warrior educators will probably use this racist ad to “prove” that it was always all about racism and nothing but racism, with White Privilege going after every black man and woman and keeping a brother and sister down. News flash: before LBJ’s Great Society, there were more intact black families. News flash: if race baiters want to erase and reverse all “White Privilege,” they should start by demanding that the Baseball Hall of Fame remove Jackie Robinson and any other black big leaguer in there from being honored. It was the White Privilege,ALONG WITH the courage and skill of Jackie Robinson, that put Jackie into the Hall of Fame. If we don’t promote the only way out of this as being a mutual effort, we simply won’t find our way out of it at all. This ad, then, is completely wrong-headed and worthless, and in fact is worse than worthless.

    I think it’s wonderful that differences are being brought out and discussed in this powerful message. P &G is a global corporation, they make lots of money and create jobs, and I didn’t see one ad for their products. I know children of color are treated differently in many scenarios, because I saw and heard it in our schools as a teacher. My little girls had serious discussions about owning “black” or “white” baby dolls, and they were only in second grade. Some said the white baby dolls were prettier and it made me so sad. Race baiting, really? Many of my educated, middle class friends had to have “talks” with their children, groom them on how to talk to police, and made sure they had ID on them in their teenage years when they went walking down the street. I’m “white” and never had to tell my boys to carry their IDs while walking to the local park, or had to tell my daughter that she was pretty just because, and not “pretty for a white girl.” Being bias is not good for the whole of society. We all began as tribal people, or clans, so that is in us genetically, yet we are a global people now with the same old prejudices and discriminations. Time to let them go. People are people no matter what race, the real issue is poverty and injustice. People that are so closed minded to think that this is racist material need to do more research to educate themselves, and spend more time reevaluating their humanity. Peace ✌

    I do not like the add, but unfortunately much of it is True. When I hear parents of this generation having to decide whether or not to take their smart, beautiful young ones out of private school because the racism is quite apparent. When someone that I went to college with has to write that an officer stopped her daughter for a left turn in a place whereThey finally let her go without issuing a ticket.it was legal. Her daughter had her two children with her and ended with guns drawn and 4 police cars surrounding them while their mother begged them NOT to kill them. When Charles Blow’s son is stopped walking across his college campus (I think Yale) and detained. Those of you who do not have to “Talk” to your children are either VERY FORTUNATE or VERY Naive. Examples shown on this video are happening every day in this country & we need to be truthful with our children. It is no longer enough just to tell them to be respectful of the law. The few incidents that I wrote about above involves WELL EDUCATED, Upper Middle -UPPER CLASS Blacks. WAKE UP FOLKS!

    Growing up I had a lot of “talks” with my family about how I would but treated because I am very tall for a girl. I had talks with them about how I struggled making friends because I was smart and not very pretty.

    I find it hard to believe that many black parents don’t have similar talks with their kids about their skin color and how it makes life different for them.

    It is sad that you see this add speaking to the experience of families and children as racist just because it does not speak to your experience.

    Your experience is not universal, you don’t know what it is like to be another race. So before you start pointing fingers and shaking your head you could try listening and hearing what they have to say.

    Ladies and Gentlemen who have posted here and will post here.
    I contribute as a middle-aged white man who actually understands and supports this commercial.
    If you yourself are white and feel attacked, then you might be part of the problem. Throughout American history, the black community has been treated with disrespect. These various scenarios gently shove a mirror in front of offenders and those of like mind through the reactions of those who care about those who have been victims. These are not scenarios which find many white people as victims. This video could have chosen to cast other minorities as well, and changing a few terms and details, it would have fit. “The Talk” of this kind is not something that we who are white have as part of our upbringing unless it is (1) “don’t associate with those kind” or on the other hand (2) “do not disrespect any human being regardless of any diversity. We are all people deserving of equal regard”. As you might be able to tell, I received the latter, and I believe that I am better for it. Some of you might have received the former. How do I know? Because you are the ones offended by this commercial.

    The only people who have a problem with this commercial are the ones doing or saying racist things. How the hell are they going to deny what blacks experience in their lives in this nation? They want to dispute the ad by stating Proctor and Gamble is creating victim-hood or it’s racist against whites? How about it ain’t always about “you” racists. How about you shaddup, sit back, listen and learn? The commercial is real and truthful. It’s what my grandmother had a talk with her children about, my mother had a talk with me and my brothers about and what I talked to my children about and my children talk to their children about! I for one am sick of racist whites wanting to be right about everything, having the nerve to weigh in on what other races experience and try to tell you it’s not true, a lie or you’re wrong.

    This video never mentions anything negative about any specific group of people. It doesn’t mention anything negative in general about a specific group of people. What this ad does is portray realistically the trials and issues faced by a segment of the population and the strength to work past those issues and by extension, a lot of different groups of people who are seen as outsiders/minorities… This is something we all should be proud of, the ability to persevere; a quality we all admire. There was an advert for Budweiser last Superbowl where adolphus Busch travels from Germany to St. Louis. In the ad, as he walks down the street as a newly arrived immigrant people shove him and tell him to go home, to go back to where he came from. At one point he is seen traveling on the back of a boat with black people, implying that as an immigrant, in accordance with
