Quote:Aishwarya Rai 'racist' jewellery ad withdrawn in India

23 April 2015

From the section India

Aishwarya Rai is a top Bollywood actress and a former Miss World

An Indian jewellery advertisement featuring top Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been withdrawn after criticism that it was "racist" and promoted child slavery.

The advertisement shows a black, emaciated child holding a red parasol over the fair, bejewelled actress.

A group of activists, in an "open letter" to Ms Rai Bachchan, called the image "extremely objectionable".

The film star's publicist said she had been photographed without the backdrop.

"The final layout of the ad is entirely the prerogative of the creative team for a brand," Ms Rai Bachchan's publicist said in a statement, suggesting that the actress had not been involved in the final image that appeared in the advertisement for Kalyan Jewellers.

The ad featuring the 41-year-old, who is a former Miss World, appeared in a newspaper last week.

After criticism, the company issued an apology on its Facebook page. It said the advertisement was intended to portray "royalty, timeless beauty and elegance" and expressed deep regret for any inadvertent hurt caused.

The company said it had begun withdrawing the ad from its campaign.

In an open letter addressed to the film star and published on Wednesday, a group of activists expressed "dismay" at the "offensive image".

"In the advertisement you appear to be representing aristocracy from a bygone era - bejewelled, poised and relaxing while an obviously underage slave-child, very dark and emaciated, struggles to hold an oversize umbrella over your head.

"The extremely fair colour of your skin (as projected in the advertisement) contrasted with the black skin of the slave-boy is obviously a deliberate 'creative' juxtaposition by the advertising agency, and insidiously racist."

The activists said the image reminded them of "17th and 18th century colonial European portraits of white aristocracy, depicting women being waited upon by their 'black servants'" and called on the actress to dissociate herself from "this offensive image".

In India, where there is a marked preference for fair skin and skin-whitening creams and lotions are big business, many say the advertisement perpetuates the retrograde idea that fair is beautiful.

The advertisement was also criticised on social media. Author and activist Meena Kandasamy tweeted:

Whoever came up with this great "concept" is obviouslt not bothered about racism or child slavery. After all, in...

<some link>

Things that can be noted:

1. Yet another psecular attack on any Hindu orgs and persons doing well. This time a Hindu-named jewellery store and a nominally-Hindu actress (Rai goes to temples, or did, when I last heard).

In reality, the attack on the ad is not an attack against the actress or the jewellery store (or rather, the ad firm it hired). But the attackers are trying to use the ad as an anecdote for 'crimes' projected onto 'India' (read Hindu India) as being 'generally the case'. The attackers have even had to resort to projecting the west's infamous history of racism and slavery (including esp of children) onto India to achieve this.

2. The above news item is Yet More Proof of the powerful network that connects the anti-Indian nexus with their foreign handlers, like the BBC:

how quickly the Indian "activists" can get the sensationalised stories they manufacture in to the BBC, so that the psyops can become "international news".

Britain hopes to do an equal equal, as news of its virulently racist, brutally colonial and misogynist past and even present is coming to light. (Not to mention UK's hand in the slave trade and child trafficking. As Trollope -was it- remarked, paraphrasing: Americans may have kept Africans as slaves as a rule and the Brits generally didn't, but the Brits were up to their shoulders in trafficking Africans as slaves, i.e. the slave trade itself. Not to mention Brits keeping Africans as slaves on christo-western plantations in or about the Indies. And the established British treatment of Africans - African women - is also seen alluded to graphically in one cinematic adaptation of Mansfield Park. BBC should know all about it, they commissioned the director/screenwriter but got flak for the final product these created.)

3. Christo colonial crimes of Europe - of using African children and adults as slaves for Euros,

is now magically projected onto India by Indian cryptochristos (the usual vocalists, Meena Kandasamy sounds familiar) deliberately reading and presenting the presence of an Indian child and another Indian (Aishwarya Rai), as instead channeling the treatment of Africans/Indians enslaved by Europeans masters.

Said cryptochristos:

Quote:In the advertisement you appear to be representing aristocracy from a bygone era - bejewelled, poised and relaxing while an obviously underage slave-child, very dark and emaciated, struggles to hold an oversize umbrella over your head.

Note how the cryptochristos allude to a bygone era - a temporal displacement - but carefully ignore the spatial and ethnic displacement: that it was exclusively a European hobby to treat enslaved Africans and Indians this way, and that that behaviour in no way reflects Indian-Indian interactions.

How can christo western European slavery of Africans & Indians reflect on Indians or their behaviour (and even ads)? How can christowestern European crimes against Africans and Indians be passed off onto heathen Indians? There is no relation. Still heathen Indians don't have any relationships to the christowest and have no share in their crimes past or present. Christocrimes - like fascism/nazism, racism, slavery, genocide of heathens, clerical abuse - are christo. Christowest's past reflects exclusively on the christo(conditioned) west and christian converted nations in the rest of the world. Not on anyone else: heathen Europeans (=following their own ancestral religions) or other ethnic heathen populations in the world.

Cryptochristo Indians are merely trying to universalise peculiarly christian crimes - such as fascism and slavery and racism - by pretending that others can ever be guilty of the same. Cryptochristos indulge in this pretension by trying to project these exclusively christian crimes onto non-monotheistic others. But christian crimes are crimes against humanity borne of christian theology such as its exclusivism. That is, they are entirely derived from christian minds and none but christians and christoconditioned are infected by them. So while Meena Kandasamy (crypto christist) may be a racist and predate on children and be part of the ever-fascist christian church, but Hindoos and others can never be accused of the same: racism, fascism and child slavery and abuse of women etc don't derive from our heathen religions. <= Christians know this, which is exactly why they resort to projecting their crimes on to others, in the hopes that ignorami will believe them (christians will, being great ignorami).

Meena Kandasamy and other cryptochristos and aliens should be outed for negating European racism and slavery by projecting it onto enslaved populations like Hindoos (and elsewhere on Africans: lots of western racists today like to accuse Africans of "racism" for skin-lightening, for the promotion of fairer Africans or multi-ethnic people of African origin on TV presented as "pure" "blacks" (western people screech that the "white" ancestry in these multi-ethnic people is ignored and that this is "racism", never mind that the actors themselves identify themselves as "black", i.e. with fellow persons of African origin), for some African-origin men preferring fairer African women or even western women, for the treatment of dark vs fair Africans etc. IIRC even Rihanna tried to downplay accusations that she was more popular because her increased fairness appealed by accusing Africans in her home country of Barbados in return: she accused darker Africans of discriminating against her fairer skin. Soon we'll hear how such African-African interactions are magically "racism" too.

Lots of western racists further try to minimise the western slave-trade/genocide of Africans by saying that the "Africans" as well as the islamic Arabs "did it too". It's beyond doubt that the christowest and islamic ME competed to enslave Africans. But the convenient fact concealed is that the African kingdoms that joined in enslaving fellow Africans were specifically the christo-converted African kings, and that these usually targeted heathen Africans in neighbouring or their own reigions: as part of the convert-or-enslave/kill enterprise.)

- Any fool knows there is no "racism" at all where Indian-Indian interactions are concerned. It's no more than if the video featured Beyonce or Rihanna and a darker African-origin child: can't be racism either. It may be a rich vs poor dichotomy, or elitists vs people not having the same opportunities - and objectionable on those scores - but it is Not racism.

Besides, even those that have heard of AIT can't get around the fact that Aishwarya Rai is ethnically S Indian, being a Tulu, making her "dravoodian" for oryanists-dravoodianists.

Yet look how christos of various hues (including dravoodianism peddlers) always bleat "racism", having invented AIT and that there are different 'races' in India. Any allusions to "racism" where Indian-Indian interactions are concerned show the obvious christian hand. It's also seen in the typical mention of that other favourite subject of christos: the "skin-lightening/skin whitening" hobbies of the rich and progressive. Conveniently glossed-over/concealed is how this hobby is promoted and fueled by western cosmetics companies (like Garnier etc) that manufacture and sell these products and advertise for them in India: they're the ones that promote skin-lightening and brainwash rich brainless Indians into it, via christowestern and christo-Indian magazines in India like Femina etc.

- But "racism" and "child slavery" (besides the "mistreatment/oppression of women") are exactly the western and Indian christian agendas on India: that this latest news report aligns so beautifully on the very topics the UK/christowest and their Indian christian slaves=converts in India have wanted to bring up in the UN and everywhere is more then mere coincidence.

- The west always gets natives to start creating the ruckus first, in the country being socially-engineered (a detailed discussion of another example here): the west needs native voices to speak their lessons/read their scripts for them, so the west can then present the plants as "Indians are objecting to this problem themselves, so it is a true problem about India and independent of our designs/foreign policy against India."

- How come western racism and child slavery and oppression of women has never been reprimanded. The west suddenly got "over them", decided it was no longer fashionable/didn't fit with the western pretence at being the morally upright civilised (even though these very matters were the definition of their self-perceived "civilisation" not long before); not counting the fact that western slavery of ethnic children in "3rd and 2nd world" countries and oppression of ethnic women in "2nd and 3rd world" countries is ongoing: half of all child labour in SE Asia (and many in India) is actually in the 'employ' of western companies, many are multimillion dollar MNCs. So too the underpaid, overworked labour of adults, also working in sweatshops. I think Nike and/or Reebok and/or LA Gears and/or Puma were raked over the coals for this in my teen years. There was some grumbling about IIRC Apple too.

And let's not bring up the western promotion of child or women trafficking in the Philippines and Thailand etc. The exploitation of humans there is entirely for the west, by the west and in Philippines happens with the connivance of native converts=traitors acting as middlemen.
