- Well, at least Vin Diesel describes himself as a 'person of colour' IIRC, having ancestors from different parts of the globe. So not a WM technically.



- Then again, Padukone is probably just opportunistically using this movie with him as a stepping stone to "bigger and better" (more 100% oryanist) people and hollyboo. In NL they have the word "parvenu" (from FR). I think it means "social climber" in English. Apt word for Padukone and clones.



- While Padukone is trying to move up, Vin Diesel seems to have fallen far down: last I recollect watching a movie featuring him (in the late 90s was it?) was in a sci-fi called Pitch Black - re-dubbed as the first entry in "The Chronicles of Riddick" when they made it into a franchise - where he starred opposite Radha Mitchell (Australian, ISKCONite parents I suspect) and she had the hero role. In fact, she was written as the hero originally, but then Riddick's character as an apathetic murderer with a conscience seemed to be more interesting to the writers - for being more "conflicted" and all - so Radha's character got a noble but brutal death like most of the other cast, while Riddick redeemed himself and escaped with some kid or something (like a throwback to Aliens) and thus survived for the sequels.



I only remember the movie at all because 1. sci-fi regular Claudia Black, usually a hero, played an anti-social non-hero; but more importantly for 2. Radha Mitchell's character, and the fact that the obvious hero got to die (didn't expect it: a bit like Voigt's Wings of a Falcon IIRC - kid's book, read in high-school - where the hero dies totally unexpectedly part-way through the novel in the middle of his quest, and his friends have to complete his mission for him and try to be heroic/fill his huge shoes in his place.)



Should watch Pitch Black again. For Radha's character, I mean. Vin Diesel's Riddick character wasn't bad, though his character arc was predictable.



Anyway, Padukone's a loser, both in the comparison (to Vin Diesel's previous co-star) and outside it. Poor Vin Diesel.

Personally I'm hoping the IE-drama (the obsession with oryanism) will lead all the loose shake-nines like Padukone and Priyanka out of India to go poison the Euro gene pool instead. I'm trying to think of a worse fate that I could wish onto the US/Europe.



Must advertise among this class of Indian women: "don't settle for miscegenated Indian males, the top of the IE foodchain are European people, please marry them and go back to the urheimat where you came from or else emigrate to the US. Or if you marry some Khan or christist, go back to Turkic C-Asia or the Middle-East/Syria."

Thai skin whitening ad provokes race storm

Whitening creams and pills are wildly popular in Thailand, where a pale complexion is upheld as the standard of beauty in the media and among many Thais.

BANGKOK: A Thai advert for skin lightening pills with the tagline "white makes you a winner" has caused an outcry on social media, in the latest marketing ploy tapping into the kingdom's obsession with skin colour.



The advertisement for the 'snowz' supplement pills, uploaded to YouTube and Facebook by Thai company Seoul Secret over the last two days, features a veteran Thai celebrity attributing her professional success to her pale complexion.

(Contrary to the above, Seoul Secret is in fact a Korean cosmetics company. Here's a famous Korean actress - fair, of course as most Korean actresses need to be - advertising for the Korean home brand:

"It's not easy to stay at this point for a long time," the 35-year-old model and actress, Cris Horwang, says in the video. "If I stopped taking care of my body and white complexion, all that I have invested will be gone."



The model's skin then turns black, prompting an envious look at a second model with light skin who appears by her side smiling.



"A newcomer will replace me and turn me into a dark star," Cris says, using a Thai idiom to refer to her fame fading.



Seoul Secret has issued a statement apologising for the controversial advert, describing it as “a mistake” and claiming full responsibility for the incident.



Posted by Seoul Secret Thailand on Friday, 8 January 2016





“Our company did not have any intention to convey discriminatory or racist messages. What we intended to convey was that self-improvement in terms of personality, appearance, skills and professionality is crucial”, the company said in a statement.



“However, the company would like to express a heartfelt apology and thank you for all the comments,” it added.



Seoul Secret confirmed it has taken down the controversial clip, related advertisement and other materials.



'STANDARD OF BEAUTY'



Whitening creams and pills are wildly popular in Thailand, where a pale complexion is upheld as the standard of beauty in the media and among many Thais. The video has received more than 100,000 views on YouTube, as well as enquiries on the company's Facebook page about how to order the product.



But other social media sites drew posts railing against the advert for being racially offensive and reinforcing the country's narrow beauty ideals.



"It indicates that dark skin people are losers, and this is clearly racist," a Thai commenter named Tammaijang wrote on the web forum Pantip.



Another post said: "Having dark skin can be beautiful - without being ashamed as well."



Seoul Secret could not be immediately reached for comment, but the comment section below the Youtube video was disabled Friday morning. A prominent Thai culture blogger called Kaewmala on her thaiwomantalks.com website speculated that the advert aimed to provoke.



"I don't think the ad agency made this ad out of ignorance," she told AFP.



"They haven't been living on the moon, I'm certain they knew it would be controversial... It was most likely a calculated strategy, which in my view makes it even more objectionable."



While there has been a growing awareness about racism among Thais in recent years, those views have yet to be reflected in a media which still readily equates dark skin with "low class", she added.



In 2013, public criticism led the US firm Dunkin' Donuts to pull an advertisement in Thailand that featured a woman in "black-face" makeup promoting a new charcoal-flavoured donut.



Thai adverts for "Black Herbal" toothpaste, as well as other cosmetic brands, have come under fire in recent years for causing racial offence.

- Korea doing this to other E/SE nations is unfair: Koreans are possibly the fairest among E/SE Asian populations (not counting heavily admixed populations like Mongolians).

- The avg Thai and other SE Asian (and E Asian) women can't be as fair as the avg Korean woman, until they too start selecting for this over a long period of time.



Hope the west won't imagine this is in compliment to them: that Thai want to be white like Euros. They want to be "white" like Koreans. Chinese fans of Korean dramas regularly say about Korean actresses that they're so "fair=beautiful" and ask about how to become so too.

This is an inter-E/SE-Asian thing: most E/SE Asians seem to have long ceased to want to look Euro, preferring to look like famous actresses from Korea (or Taiwan/China or Japan) and marry Japanese men. Well, Japanese actors are admittedly extremely good-looking, and actresses too. E/SE Asians really are easy very on the eyes. One never tires of looking at them.



E Asian programmes don't seem to project a wannabe-western attitude either: despite actresses changing their hair colour or getting surgery on the eyes (Koreans seem to use plastic surgery on all their features a lot, men as well as women: and the 'after' is sadly always worse than their pretty faces before).



Japan doesn't seem as obsessed about fairness in women as S Korea, and has slightly 'darker' - relative term - actresses acting as the romantic leads too. Except for 1 actor, all JP actors I've ever seen have had some really nice colouring going on. Darker men of their own ethnicity are often (but not necessarily) preferred in films and series in Korea and other E Asian countries too. But there are other pressures on male actors: e.g. height requirements in Japan. (People in Korea are generally tall.)

Indian rags have brought it up too, even the catholic junk "deccanchronicle".

Surprisingly no comments: the usual suspects (the anti-Indian nexus) would have been out in force declaring AIT vs Dravoodianism and/or "casteism" or "hateful Hindus" etc if this were India. But when it's Thailand, they are careful not to notice:
