British beauty brand Illamasqua is stirring up trouble with a so-called “blackface” ad for its winter makeup campaign.

The ad features a woman whose entire face — except for her lips — is painted black, with the slogan, “I’m not dreaming of a white Christmas.”

Another ad in the campaign features a model whose face is painted white.

Illamasqua posted the questionable ad on its website, Facebook and Pinterest pages, prompting dozens of customers to voice their disgust.

“This ad is horrifying,” wrote one woman on Pinterest.

“Wow, this is racist and gross,” wrote another. “Really surprised Pinterest can’t/ hasn’t taken it down, it must be extremely alienating to black pinners.”

Others cut the beauty brand some slack, classifying the ads as “art.”

“Just an editorial interpretation of the opposite of white,” explained one commenter.

Illamasqua responded to the criticism Tuesday but refused to remove the ad.

“The model painted black has been interpreted by some as ‘black face,’” the company said in a statement. “This was certainly not our intention nor inspiration.”

Illamasqua added that they were “shocked by the cynicism behind some of the comments.”

So, sound off in our comments section. Is Illamasqua racist or are its customers too sensitive?

an obviously Hollywood inspired hate crime on another campus. in racist Hollywood Asian women are often used as sex toys and love interests of the white male protagonists. a  recently example is the dehumanizing racist movie The Cloud Atlas.

 

 

UCLA police were considering hate crime allegations after someone posted a hateful, racist and sexist message outside an on-campus office shared by the Vietnamese Student Union and the Pacific Islanders Student Association, sources and officials told the Weekly.

 

Vietnamese Student Union external vice president Uyen Hoang says fellow members believe the vandalism happened between 8 p.m. Monday and 8 a.m. Tuesday because the group had people around the office except during that time.

The printed message, posted on a bulletin board, reads:

 

asian women R Honkie white-boy worshipping Whores.

 

An image of an obscene hand gesture accompanied the enlightened statement. That is according to the UCLA Daily Bruin, which broke the story.

An image of an obscene hand gesture accompanied the enlightened statement. That is according to the UCLA Daily Bruin, which broke the story. Hoang confirmed the main facts of the situation, adding:

 

What happened is that a racist and sexist slur was printed and posted on our bulletin board outside our office that we share with the Pacific Islanders Student Association in Kerckhoff Hall.

He said Vietnamese Student Union members took down the sign about 10:30 a.m. yesterday.

UCLA police spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein told the Weekly someone phoned in a preliminary report but that she was expecting a formal complaint before an investigation would begin in earnest:

We take reports of any hate situations very seriously.

Does UCLA have an ethnic-sensitivity problem?

According to school statistics, Asians make up the biggest ethnic group on campus, comprising 34 percent of the undergrad population last year.

Earlier this year an apartment shared by a Latina and Asian UCLA students was vandalizedwith graffiti that included the message, “”dirty Meximelt bitches.”

In early 2011 then-UCLA student Alexandra Wallace famously unleashed a YouTube rant with racist undertones that decried “Asians in the library.”

 

The Vietnamese Student Union is organizing an “awareness event” outside Kerckhoff Hall Thursday at noon.

Korean Loses Finger in Racist Attack in Australia

A Korean man studying in Australia says he lost a finger in a racially motivated attack there and was also abused by local police.

The 33-year-old man, identified only by his last name Jang, reported to the Korean Consulate in Melbourne that he fell victim to a knife attack by a group of teenagers on Nov. 5 while walking through a park near his home with a Korean friend.

He said the teenagers asked him for a cigarette, and when he refused started assaulting him and shouting, “Fucking Chinese.”

And one of them cut off his finger with a knife, Jang said. He said police only arrested one of them and let the others go.

Jang lost consciousness in the attack and was taken to an emergency room and underwent surgery to reattach the severed finger.

He had been studying at a technical school in Melbourne since July on a six-month visa. Jang recounted his ordeal on a website and complained that local police appeared to brush off the assault simply as rowdy teenage behavior. He said police refused to inform him of the identities of the other teens.

Local police said the assailant who was arrested had a record of attacking others, his family and police. He refused to identify his accomplices were.

In the wake of the publicity, local police have now promised to take another look at the incident, and the regional government has pledged to compensate Jang for damages.

Australia has recently seen a raft of racially motivated crimes against Asians.

Anti-Israel demonstrators gathered on Friday in the heart of Vienna, protesting Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense and chanting slogans calling for the murder of Jews and bashing the Jewish state.

Israel’s eight-day military operation to stop Hamas rocket fire from entering the country prompted two fiercely anti-Israel protests in the Austrian capital.

 

Samuel Laster, an Israeli journalist who lives in Vienna, told The Jerusalem Post on Sunday that he heard a contingent of 15 to 20 Austrian Islamists chanting in Arabic, “Death to the Jews.”

Laster first reported on the call to eliminate Jews on his website die juedische (“the Jewish”).

Speaking from Vienna by phone, he told the Post that a “mix of Austrian leftist radical extremists and Islamists” appeared at the protest. He estimated that at least 400 anti-Israel protesters, including Salafists, Muslim Brotherhood members and Palestinians, took part in the demonstration.

The demonstrators marched to the federal chancellor’s office.

The anti-Israel activists yelled “Freedom for Palestine” and “Down with Israel,” and a group of Austrian Muslims blasted repeatedly in Arabic “Death to the Jews.” Laster said the Austrian authorities, including the domestic intelligence agency (Verfassungschutz), must increase their efforts to combat “Islamic extremism.” He criticized the lax approach of Austrian police officials who waved off the anti-Jewish rhetoric as merely a protest against Israel.

Dr. Shimon Samuels, the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s director for international relations, wrote the Post by email on Sunday, “the Verfassungschutz, whether in Germany or Austria, has to make the analytical leap in treating the Trotskyite/jihadist movements as they did regarding Nazi and Communist espionage or terrorism.

“These provide cover for a fifth column of sleepers and lone-wolf recruits that endanger the host societies as much as, if not more than, their Jewish citizens. Jews have somewhere to go. Germans and Austrians do not.”

He added that when the ragtag political activists scream “death to the Jews” in Vienna or Berlin they mean it.

“The Holocaust began with the word and brought the world to the abyss. The alarms in Israel under Hamas rockets should reverberate in Vienna and Berlin, for the indifferent and exposed Austrians and Germans who do not realize that they have no Iron Dome,” said Samuels.

At an earlier demonstration during the war, Austrian Islamists and Leftists screamed slogans calling for the destruction of the Jewish state. According to a report on November 16 on the Vienna news website Heute.at, protesters invoked slogans including “We are against the two-state solution” and “We are for a Palestine that is free from the West Bank and reaches to the Mediterranean and Israel will be wiped out.”

Heute.at reported that a large segment of the protesters were of Turkish and Arabic descent and yelled “Allahu akbar.”

The Palestinian and Syrian communities in Vienna helped organize the rally during the IDF’s operation against Hamas in Gaza.
