Dove Labels Skin Tones Fair, Normal and Dark



Tut tut tut at Dove for this, the people that loves every type of skin on every type of body seems to think their is such a thing as normal skin, what that is I would really like to know!
While I can understand that the Dove product is said to heighten one natural skin pigment for a 'Summer Glow' I don't think it appropriate that they labelled the product suitable for 'fair to normal skin' or 'normal to 'dark skin'.

This is wrong on so many levels and could have been avoided had they used the word medium instead of normal. I'm not angry though it does highlight the existence of racism (for anyone in doubt) and also exemplifies how those who hold influental social/cultural/political roles still uphold racist ways of thinking.
