    Is it racist? In their culture, probably not, because they don't have very many black people over there, and so have no bias one way or the other towards them. The people who made this advertisement were looking at the fact that their detergent can clean anything and make it white.

    Over here? Yes, that advertisement would be considered racist because of the attitudes and biases that blacks have endured over the years.
