12 items listed, various sizes of :

they just forgot the delousing shampoo to be even more insensitive.

I can't wait to see what they will come up with for Black History Month.

/limo: celebrate Black History Month with cotton balls.

//hey FW, the attach image seems to be broken as there is no button to proceed once you attach your image. (tested in Firefox and IE)

I looked at my DE ad, the products are all Colgate-Palmolive brand items, and it's in a box on the page, it appears to be a manufacturer promotion, something I see in many shopping ads. Unilever and General Mills do several of these throughout the year, and I've seen ones from Kraft and Kellogg's. I wouldn't make too much of it, Colgate-Palmolive only make and sell health and beauty aids. And I have seen promo's for Black History Month done by manufacturers.

I second that.
I am trying to post a "great" picture

December 2012, on a pop-up ad:

"Who's been arrested ?". Just guess the race of the arrestee !!! 

<< the products are all Colgate-Palmolive brand items >>, but they advertised only personal hygiene products.
A bit of variety would have be good then:

<< Murphy's Oil Soap, laundry and dishwashing detergents, fabric conditioners, household cleaners, bleaches and other similar items. Pet Nutrition products,... >>

I think it's fine to be offended by those trying to profit off of something of that subject. I'd be offended if I was Hispanic. Then again, I think Blah Heritage month's are extremely stupid too. So whatever. Offended anyone?

On that note... Here's what a really offensive advertisement looks like:

I would buy the sale items but it's not yet time for my annual bath.

I say get rid of these stupid XXXX heritage month. It's pointless when vast portion of the population can't even tell you what is Aleppo.
