Ugly White Babies Prevalent In African City's Ads

ugly_baby_goma.jpg

In some sort of odd cultural twist, ugly white babies appear to be omnipresent in ads in the mostly black city of Goma, Congo in Africa. What message this sends, if any, we have no idea. We just thought we'd pass it along for you to discuss. Bigger image here.

Why do you find the baby ugly? Because he is white?

I'm just passing on the thought of the person who took the picture.

How dare you say my baby is ugly?!?...is what I'd say if that was my really ugly white baby.

technically, the person who took the picture said they were scary babies, not ugly.

personally, i think the baby depicted looks very european. not unlike anyone in britain's royal family.

oops, i guess that does make the baby ugly.
