German UNICEF ad puts kids in blackface

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

What do you think of this UNICEF ad campaign currently running in Germany?

According to the blog Black Women in Europe (where you can also see the other 3 ads in the series), the translation is as follows:

The headline translates “This Ad-campaign developped pro bono by the agency Jung von Matt/Alster shows four german kids who appeal for solidarity with their contemporaries in Afrika”

The first kid says:

“I’m waiting for my last day in school, the children in africa still for their first one.”

second kid:

“in africa, many kids would be glad to worry about school”

third kid:

“in africa, kids don’t come to school late, but not at all” (!)

fourth kid:

“some teachers suck. no teachers sucks even more.”
