Tide Laundry Detergent has released its latest effort #WashAwayLabels hoping their cleansing power will help to wash away those labels the Latino community is tagged with. Tide has included a video on Youtube sharing the testimonials of members of different ethnic groups, from Cuban to Mexican, speaking out on the negative titles they've been labeled in their lifetimes:“beaners,” “narco,” and “mojados” were just a few. Along with the National Council of La Raza, Tide is hoping to help the Latino community “delete” the negative tags and share how it would like to referred to as in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, according to the video’s description.Some of the labels mentioned were screen printed onto white t-shirts using ketchup instead of ink. The same individuals who said they’ve been categorized under those labels walked into a room scattered with the shirts to show that “labels are stains.”The participants set the dirty t-shirts to wash to cleanse them of the derogatory names while advertising Tide's cleansing strength.
