Michelle Malkin: Procter & Gamble Should Stick to Selling Diapers

Michelle MalkinConservative commentator Michelle Malkin is calling out Procter & Gamble for “identity-politics pandering” in a recent column.

In her piece, Malkin takes issue with P&G’s latest video for the company’s “My Black is Beautiful” campaign. She writes:

It “depicts the inevitable conversations many Black parents have with their children about racial bias to prepare, protect and encourage them” across the decades. The ad plays as a kinder, gentler version of Black Lives Matter propaganda, but the underlying themes are the same:

–Little progress has been made since the days of Jim Crow.

–Racial discrimination against black Americans is inevitable.

–Police officers are the enemy.

While the article focuses on P&G, virtue-signaling by exploiting complex social issues is common marketing tactic for many companies. The “#RealMoms” campaign by Unilever celebrating a biological father becoming a transgender “mom” is another recent example. According to Malkin, “Industry marketers aren’t satisfied with selling useful products people want and need. They’re hell-bent on transforming successful businesses into social justice busybodies.”

At the end of the piece, Malkin concludes, “If P&G isn’t willing to tackle the full complexity of race relations in 21st-century America, perhaps the company should stick to selling diapers instead of filling them.”
