What Do You Think?



Megan buys this soap from the health food store she used to work at. She likes the soap a lot, but I'm kind of perplexed by the packaging. (The company was started by two street vendors from NYC.)



Do see the slogan at the bottom? Now if I were a business owner, do you think I could put,"100% White Owned and Proud of It!" on my product with out any ramifications?

I think we live in a country with double standards. That is all I have to say...

well you know you would get into trouble if you had a national caucasion scholarship fund. There are double standards for sure.

I totally know what you are saying and find it puzzling. I haven't seen that soap anyway.

Is skin "brightning" like skin whitening? Now that would be irionic!
