one thing I want to add: brands like Gucci, Armani, Chanel etc.  mainly not a product, but a certain feeling or "life style". And this feeling or life style is generally associated with E ...


Subtle racism and media brainwashing.  Those companies are indirectly marketing white supremacy - this has been known for years in the western media.

no, this is not my way of seeing things.

Gucci shows Italian life style (or what it is supposed to be), Chanel French. I don't think you can expect these companies to create an "Asian Gucci life style". It is not only about the faces, it is the whole environment shown in the adverts.
I agree that this leads to a strong (and maybe exaggerated) interest in these European countries. Also to the idea that everything is so great there, which it actually isn't. I met some Asians who admired Europe much even when there was nothing to admire. And these "noble" and expensive brands might be a reason for it.
But you can't blame the companies for wanting to . You can't expect from these companies to totally change their "image" and the feeling they transmit.

And finally and lastly - no racist "message" is intended by these companies.

just for interest:

In the adverts of Toyota, Hyundai, Sony, Samsung etc. ........ are there no white faces in China? And if there are - whom do you blame for this?

Many Asian companies like HTC, Sony, Samsung, Haier, Honda, Toyota, etc...ALL feature White people in their ads.  So obviously they will kowtow to western standards - yet western companies refuse to show Asian people in their advertisements even in Asia!

There have been countless studies done by many scholars about racism in western media - you should really do some research.

I haven't completely read this article. Not enough time right now. So only so much:

If Asian companies show more white people in Asia, then this is their problem, not the white man's.
I have to point out that in Europe, you can see some non-white people on TV. I'm not talking about adverts, but series and other TV shows.
If you think China should ban whites from TV, then propose it to the Politburo. I have no problem with that. I just wonder how Western countries should handle this issue with non-Whites in their adverts then.

"you should really do some research" - I know what I see every day. And you blame me for coincidentally not having read the articles you take your wisdom from.
