Cadbury’s insult Naomi Campbell and Black women
Does the chocolate giant Cadbury’s believe that the First Lady Michelle Obama would like to see Black women being described as chocolate? No, thought not. The same goes for the vast majority of Black man and woman in this country and the USA.
So we ask the question why have Cadbury’s produced an ad that shows their new chocolate bar ‘ Bliss’ surrounded by diamonds with the headlines ‘ Move over Naomi there is a new diva in town’?
And for those that think this is funny-it's not. Black parents don’t want their children being called a chocolate bar because it's supposed to be funny. We thought we were done with this stuff in the seventies.
This latest insult to Black women comes after one of the countries top universities London School of Economics failed to sanction one of it its lecturers Satoshi Kanazawa for using pseudo science and claiming Black women are ugly.
Simon Woolley of Operation Black Vote stated:
‘President Obama and his wife may be the most powerful political couple in the world, but this insult by Cadbury’s clearly shows we do not live in a post-racial world.
Let’s just see how Cadbury’s respond. And if they don’t, rest assured there will be consequences.’.
Lee Jasper of BARAC, stated
‘This issue is not just about the insult to Naomi Campbell. She is entitled to be offended, but it's also about how these companies treat Black people in general. Part of the problem is that they don’t see it as offensive, maybe because their managements are almost always all white’.
