I'm watching last weeks episode of The Culture Show and they are previewing a new exhibitions at the Wellcome Collection, called Skin. This ad for soap is in the exhibition where a little black boy is wash in Pears soap and becomes white. How insane is that? Once upon a time that was considered 'acceptable' mental. This is a link to a blog i found, the person has written about the link between this ad and the imperialism and racism of days gone by.
