Skin as pink and white as a newborn (white) baby’s bottom

I saw this on youtube, and thought immediately: I want that!! Not because I want to be white, but because I want my skin to look brighter. I think there is a difference, but a lot of the people who comment on the commercials for Pond’s Flawless White and White Beauty were appalled and thought it was racist. Perhaps it’s the name of the product. Maybe it should be Flawless Bright or Bright Beauty. Unless some of the women in Asia use this product because they want white skin and not just bright skin. Perhaps they feel self-conscious if their skin is dark.

Is this wrong? There’s probably some people out there who wish the women these commercials are aimed at would accept themselves for who they are. Unless they just want to get rid of a few spots.

I know the lady looks pretty white at the end of this commercial. Almost like she’s wearing face paint.

But other commercials just show some dark spots fading away.

What do you think? Is race seen differently in Asia than in the United States? What do you think the races are of the people who commented on these videos?
