Dove, Do Better

Over the weekend, beauty company, Dove deleted a 3-second clip from its Facebook page over negative feedback on their recent soap commercial. From first glance, the video shows a black woman "changing" into a white woman after using Dove soap. Soon after Dove issued a statement on its Facebook apologizing for how they represented women of color (WoC) in the ad. I first saw the video on the 'black twitter' sphere with tons of people calling Dove's commercial "racist", "insensitive" and "offensive", and I'd have to agree. While I watched the clip I was immediately uncomfortable... How dare Dove? How dare Dove completely dismiss and overlook its WoC market and come out with this commercial? Lat
