L'Oreal Cosmetics Racist?

Despite the fashion and entertainment industry being so diverse, there are still a few companies within that "stick with their own kind". I really don’t understand some companies within the beauty and fashion industry. They want everyone’s money, but they don’t want certain ethnic groups to be apart of their company. This is pretty much how L’Oreal feels. Check out this statement below, to see how the company really thinks. I don’t know about you but I am done using any L’Oreal products. Check out what the a court in France had to say about the cosmetic giant:

French cosmetics giant, L’Oreal, who has hired Beyonce and other African-American personalities to front their products is in hot water. It’s ok for us to peddle their products but not ok for us to work behind the scenes. The highest court in France determined that executives at Garnier, L”Oreal’s beauty productd division, intentionally created an all-White sales teams to promote their shampoos throughout the country, according to TimesOnline.com. Blacks, Asian and Middle Eastern women were hardly ever considered for hostess positions.

In fact, a fax was issued into evidence that requested hostesses must be between 18-22 years old, wear a European size 38-42 and be BBR. Apparently, BBR stands for “bleu, blanc, rouge” or French for “blue, white, red” the colors of their French flag which is also code for white people. This ends a three-year legal battle for the L’Oreal bosses who apparently were “disappointed” by the court’s decision. They will now have to pay 30,000 Euros in fines and another 30,000 in damages.-WLW
