The local obsession in Thailand with becoming as white as white can, which has now topped breast implants and flat nose eradication,  has been recently featuring a particularly tasteless advert which is causing a bit of a stir not least because of its racist connotations.

Its been kicking around so you may have seen it already.

The brown bear wants to be a white polar bear. Pity you’re not human,  says the white woman doctor, who then downs a glass of  Verena L-Gluta Berry.

Capping off the video is the doctor’s black father and family, who walk in to see how she’s getting along.

Of course racism works both ways, see below.

But  I am not sure the old Liagra advert below cannot be used in other deserving contexts other than Pattaya bar girls, realtors perhaps? Racism works in many ways, but I guess a few foreigners have been cleaned out by the ‘Pattaya Bar girls’ though, and probably the guy who posted it..

Above are links to a few stories about skin whitening creams and the advert is below
