Retro Racist Ad of the Week.

(click ad, from 1967, via) "Join in the fun! Your skin will come alive, and you will too, when you start using Dr. Fred Palmer's Skin Whitener...for a happier, more youthful you. Try it...for an exciting new you." Nice touch, the burst over "sparkle." Product still available. More or less racist than this 2010 Indian SkinWhite ad? Previous Retro Racist Ads of the Week. Related: Prime TV's Michael Jackson pigmentation timeline ad.

Let's see now, Michael was 9 then and highly impressionable... the beginning of the end.

I've seen the results of people who use these kinds of products and let me tell you the results. aren't. pretty.

It's kind of like someone has attempted to to erase your face with one of those sub par pink erasers...but ends up leaving behind a big ol' grey spot where your face used to be.
