#China says relations with Africa are 'brotherly' after outcry over 'racist' ad

BEIJING (Reuters) - China and Africa are "good brothers" and China respects all people regardless of race, the government said on Monday (May 30) after a detergent maker apologised for an advert showing a black man bundled into a washing machine that many called racist. Foreign Ministry spokesman Hua Chunying said the ad was an isolated commercial act that had not prompted any diplomatic complaints and hoped people would not hype it up. "Everyone can see that we are consistent in equality towards, and mutually respect, all countries, no matter their ethnicity or race. In fact, we are good brothers with African countries," Ms Hua told a daily news briefing. qiaobi.jpg Related Story Outrage over racist Chinese detergent ad Related Story Chinese firm behind racist detergent ad tells critics to lighten up In the television advertisement for Qiaobi laundry detergent, a black ma...
