Nivea Thinks Natural Hair Is Uncivilized?

  1. I think it is uncalled for and outright wrong. I mean that’s ridiculous, so our black men are uncivilized if they sport a beard or natural hair? C’mon. That is offensive.

      They really didn’t think this ad thru

  2. Based on the lack of race relations in Germany I find iti offensive with both the black man & the white man. Whites have continuously set standards for how people neighborhoods businesses dogs cats schools & a host of other stuff should look and because of the standards they feel are acceptable it causes kids and adults to try and live up to these so called “norms” the ad with the white man holding the head with the long beard and thick curly hair reminds me of orthodox Jewish men we all know Germanys past with Jews. The black ad is offensive because lots if Europeans & whites think blacks are unruly any way. What would we say if the black man was holding that same doll head but the end result was he had locs instead of the fro……

      I honestly believe it would still be offensive regardless.

  3. I think we are reading to much into that ad! I’m a natural woman, the ad features a man and let me tell u if my husband had a bushy fro like that I would beg him to get a haircut! There is TO much in the world to take offense to.

  4. I have written about this topic also. Here’s a question that I haven’t asked on my blog. What was the black actor thinking when he understood what was asked of him? Was it $$$ or was it that because he was on the other side of the issue the reason why he couldn’t see the controversy? Nice blog, I am glad you all over the topic and spreading the word.

  5. I think the add is totally uncalled for and a low blow to the natural hair community. Thanks for posting the information on how to contact the company concerning this add!!!

  6. It’s awesome to pay a visit this web site and reading the views
    of all mates regarding this article, while I
    am also keen of getting know-how.

  7. Gorgeous, fecking amazing dress! You're so right about drkeamssing too – I think it can be as frugal a hobby as you want it to be. Sometimes if you have a very particular project in mind you just need to be patient enough to wait for the things you need to appear in your local op-shop. But most of my sewing projects have been made from second-hand materials! The only things I have bought new are my sewing machine (which was a gift), and a few very specific zippers that I needed.

  8. I grew up down there and my first job at 14 was working for a pizza place that let me answer the phones and take orders. I have known 14 year olds to get hired to bag groceries at the supermarkets and also to sell the newspaper on Sundays.References : Was this answer helpful?
