I am not sure how to react to this ad but I was speechless when I saw it. Can one call it racism? Perhaps not but apart from the difference in the colour of the skin (or race, in genetic terms), everything else is the same. If the depiction of the african tribes in Pirates of the Caribbean was racist, then what do we call the depiction of tribals in Indian cinema and advertisements?

India shining, indeed...

That reminded me of the choreography found in 1940s Amweican movies, choreographed by the beloved Katherine Dunham. She had to work on several movies, I'm sure she hated.

It was a racist ad.

Hmm.. I was never really aware of Katherine Dunham. Thanks for the info.

As for the ad, it is offensive and I would like to shoot the idiot who came up with the idea.
