That's pretty cute! But there's no way that's "one room".



We've been to IKEA recently, and I've seen most of what she's using.

This is a PC issue that actually makes me feel sorry for the CEO of Dunkin Donuts in Thailand.

I don't see racist overtones in this ad,
and think it is a artistic portrait of a lovely black woman (even if it is a model in blackface)

I disagree with the main assumption.

This looks just like a model painted in the color of the doughnut that is being advertised. That's all.

I think it's racist to try and turn everything into a racist thing when it's not. That's the problem I see.

They should have used a panther instead of a person, keep the color but not the racial overtones.

Except a panther can't really hold a doughnut in its paw, so just a panther, right, with a human hand holding the new black doughnut.

Ooh, but the human hand without a person in the shot might look weird, maybe even like the panther ate the person. So maybe a stylized art hand instead, and not holding the doughnut all dainty, but in a powerful grip that's not afraid of getting eaten by a panther.

Okay, so, black panther in the foreground, with a flag or something just over its shoulder, and the flag's got a raised fist on it, holding the doughnut. I like it.
