Here is a picture of Pierry, a Haitian immigrants from Queens in Republican Ad.
The Republican National Committee (RNC) has decided to run a series of advertisement campaign to showcase how diversified group of Republicans actively support and belong to their party. They have released a series of five advertisements on air (at a cost of $300,000) during the Fox Business Republican Debate in South Carolina on Thursday, January 14, 2016. The ads feature Mario, a Latino, first-generation college graduate from Pueblo; Katherine, mother of an autistic child from Tampa, Florida; Vallerie, a community leader from Sarasota, Florida; Mike, a small business owner and 9/11 firefighter from the Bronx, New York; and Pierry, the son of Haitian immigrants from Queens. This is an effort of RNC to win back the White House after realizing how poorly they fared in the 2012 election with 6% of the African-American vote and 27% of the Hispanic vote. Recent comments by their candidate Donald Trump about immigrants has made the situation worse.
Controversy around Donna Karan's Ad with Brazilian model Adriana Lima and Haitians
This a a ad that did not seat well with many people. As you are looking at this ad for Donna Karan that is getting ready to hit the world for her spring 2012 season, you will observe the beautiful and sexy Brazilian model Adriana Lima posing in a seductive way. Two young Haitian men are seen in the background.
The reaction of many people following the apparition of the image is that it is of poor taste. Showing Donna Karan's Ad with Adriana Lima shows glamour; but at the same time it shows suffering in the faces of Haiti, a country that has been going through a major earthquake and where many people are still suffering.
Donna Karan's Ad was inspired by the work of famous Haitian artist, Philippe Dodard and photographed by Russell James
