In an attempt to present Dove as a company that values cultural diversity, many believe an ad fell astoundingly short. It shows a black woman, a white woman, and an olive-skinned woman, possibly Latina, standing side by side — a tableau of racial harmony. What is being considered as offensive is what’s behind them: a pair of skin close-ups with “before” and “after” titles positioned so that it looks like they’re referring to the black and white woman, respectively.
