“Diversity” as in ZERO White people, ZERO Asian people, ZERO Hispanic people, ZERO South Asian people, ZERO any other kind of people…just Black people. What’s more, 3 out of the 4 Black women in the ad are just plain fat.
Summit News “London’s greatest strength is our diversity, so we challenged advertisers to produce ads that better represented our BAME communities,” tweeted Khan.
Khan said the ad was “empowering, inclusive,” just not very inclusive of white people. This is yet more confirmation that “diversity” is just a euphemism which means ‘no white people’. The ad didn’t even feature the usual token white.
“How is making everybody black ‘diversity’?” asked black rapper Zuby.
Respondents pointed out another body type and skin tone that is underrepresented in advertising – attractive white people – since Khan has banned such advertisements from being seen.
The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has moved to ban from the city’s transport network adverts that promote unrealistic expectations about body image and health. Khan has told Transport for London to stop running body-shaming ads amid concerns that the advertising “can demean people, particularly women”.
Last year, a Volkswagen commercial was also banned in the UK for violating “gender stereotypes” because it showed a woman caring for a baby. She was also white.
Another ad seen on the London Underground that was allowed featured a white character and lectured male commuters not to “manspread”.
Ads showing an attractive woman in a bikini are banned on the London Underground, but ads promoting the homophobic country of Brunei which just passed a new law allowing gay people to be stoned to death, continue to appear on the London Underground.
Meanwhile, the only ads featuring all white characters in London appear to be those encouraging white people to sterilize themselves.
