'Black Is Beautiful' Toilet Paper Triggers Activists

Rebel Staff

Now, social justice warriors say they have been triggered... by a toilet paper ad

An advert for luxury black toilet paper in Brazil has been branded racist after it starred a famous white actress and used the slogan “Black is Beautiful”. 

The company Santher dropped the term, which was famously used by South African anti-apartheid campaigner Steve Biko and other activists since the 1960s, after it drew outrage. 

The advert showed actress  Marina Ruy Barbosa, naked apart from the black toilet paper wrapped around her.

“People died so that this expression could be revered until today," Rio-based writer Anderson França wrote on Facebook. 

"People continue dying and this expression is more important and vital than never before. But in Brazil if you key in #blackisbeautiful you are going to find ass paper.”

 

His post has been shared more than 2,700 times as anger spread on social media.

"In Brazil #Blackisbeautiful   is not a cause, it is now toilet paper. Where do black lives matter?," one Twitter user said.

Triggered by a toilet paper ad?? Give me a break!

This is a new level of crazy, even for the left. This ad has nothing to do with skin color, it's simply trying to let people know that the toilet paper being sold is black. Given the fact that most toilet paper rolls are white, it's important that Santher let consumers know that their product is unique. I guess companies can't even say the word "black" anymore without being accused of racism!

Ordering so called “whites” to move to the back, so that so called “browns” can move closer to the stage is racist indeed, but she’s not attacked or asked to apologize. Different standards according to who makes the racist remark. Hypocrisy at its best.

Well you’re right, everything is racist now. Every word, every comment is scrutiniz ed & if you are in the limelight, well watch out, because you are going to keep getting branded over & over again, because the left have lost their sanity & common sense if they ever had any to begin with. Everything gets twisted around to advance their sick cause & to polarize & create hate because they thrive on it & love to create chaos. Think their way or no way at all.

I’m sure she just tanked her career for that racist move.

She didn’t just invite brown girls to the front she absolutely insisted over the PA system that the white people move to the back… she said it’s her show then she can do it she wants. She cared nothing to the fact she was polarizing the crowd and contributing to a situation where people’s skin colour is their uniform. She is a racist by any definition of the word.!!

Black and white are NOT colors. In nature, a color is visible light with a specific wavelength. Black and white are not colors because they do not have specific wavelengths. Instead, white light contains all wavelengths of visible light. Black, on the other hand, is the absence of visible light. So in a purely scientific sense, White is color inclusive and black rejects light.

Using either term to describe people is the very worst kind of stereotyping.

Speaking of overt racism, overt reverse racism, get a load of this disgusting display in Halifax. I have never heard of this singer but I would never pay to hear her after this.

The Halifax festival says the incident involved a white volunteer photographer and several white audience members who reacted negatively when Pimienta invited “brown girls to the front” during her Oct. 19 show.

So does this mean that you can only wipe your butt with something white? Now is that racism – since anything associated with black equals racism.

What about all those SJW who complained that TP is only white?

Give it a rest. World: grow up.

Mongrel in many cases it seems white people care more about black lives than other black people who are murdering each other at an alarming rate.

’ “Where do black lives matter?,” one Twitter user said.’

Does he really want the answer?

I recall asking a worker at I-Hop in Florida for cream and sugar for my coffee and getting attitude!
asked why I replied ‘cause I don’t like drinking my coffee black’….WHAT DID YOU CALL ME he replied to which I laughed and said ‘well never mind then. your obviously busy. I’ll just drink my coffee black!
The glares were palpable and the people I sat with were aghast! I felt very angry and violated but remained calm with a smile on my face and finished my breakfast……gave no tip and will never eat at I-Hop again

A generation of social misfits is destroying society

Sales for black toilet paper will likely skyrocket.
commented 2017-10-28 01:54:59 -0400
The remedy to this is a line that states " you will use white toilet paper now and forever because your left hand is a disgusting alternative. "
White is the colour of power , intelligence, and forward thinking. Using white toilet paper is the one and only chance you have of integrating white into your life.
Use it or lose it !

William Elder the saddest part is that these idiots do not realize they are pushing for a society where you have to wait in line for one precious roll of crappy government brand toilet paper. I doubt they will give a damn about the color of it then.

These Bolshie kinder are just “bummed out” because normal people don’t wipe their butt with the constitution.

If You use black toilet paper, are You a Racist?

If You do not use black toilet paper, are You a Racist?

It’s a strange strange world we live in….

Racist?

The word is so over used it no longer means anything.

Tie for some companies to stand up and swing back.

How boring.
commented 2017-10-27 20:44:15 -0400
This one is just too far out there to be funny. Instead of laughing, I’m bored. It’s like a failed Monty Python skit. Most are funny, some just miss the mark. This one misses the mark. It’s stupid, of course, but it’s just not funny.

Wow, even toilet paper has become political!

John Zealand, I agree!

Lip should keep his trap shut.
I truly don’t think I can take anymore of this crap….
