Someone else questions P&G's My Black is Beautiful campaign

Diane Farsetta wrote a wonderful post on WIMN's Voices. In "The Revolution Will Not Be Moisturized," Farsetta calls out Proctor & Gamble's My Black is Beautiful campaign for what it is--not a movement for female empowerment but advertising.

If you are a regular reader of this blog, then you know I hold the same view. Read my post "My Black is Beautiful (Fine Print: Except when it starts peeking out around my hairline. Then I need to run to the salon for some chemicals, baby!)

Can we get a movement to make women feel comfortable in their own skin that isn't led by someone who wants us to buy something?

What do you think?
