The other day I turn on the computer to see what’s in the news around the world and what do I find? I see this H&M advert and for a second I ‘m lost for words but then I remember what world I’m living in. I wasn’t surprised at this racist, insensitive, extremely ignorant advert. Because when you only employ white people in the boardroom in a world of multiculturalism these types of things are bound to happen. I’m sure these people who made this advert have black friends who they could consult before making this photo public, right? I wonder, where were this little boy parents when this photo was made? If they weren’t present during the photo shoot then maybe they can use, “we didn’t know” as an excuse. But, if they were present during the making of this photo then they should take the blame for their stupidity, low intelligence, selling their son out for a buck and cooning. I’ve said it before If you as a black person see white people doing racist shit. May it be at your job, school or in the street. Don’t be a coward, stand up and say something! It doesn’t matter if it’s you against 50…say something!
