After 5 years in Malaysia, Borders is celebrating with some tasty offers. (Click poster up to size to read.) Congrats!
But the whiteness of the kids in the picture has been upsetting friends. Daphne Lee asks on facebook :
So how come there aren't any Malaysian children in the picture? Is this another case of whitewashing?Amir Muhammad wants to know :
I reckon the person who put the ad together just reached for a stock image without considering the reaction of Malaysian consumers. But considering the reaction, one can only hope that a lesson will be learned.
