Categories: Sub-Saharan Africa, Western Europe, Germany, Education, Ethnicity & Race, Youth

UNICEF has decided to end their “Black Face” campaign [1]: “African American Opinion Pundit decided to write to UNICEF about their “black face” campaign.
And their response:
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We agree — these advertisements are not appropriate and run against UNICEF’s mission. They have been dropped from the UNICEF German National Committee’s website and there are no plans to use them in the future. We apologize for any offence caused.”
