New NIVEA FOR MEN AD...Is it racist???? Take a look at both ads...

Okay, I've checked out the ad. Both ads....yes, there are two. One of the ads has a white male model that has been freshly shaved with a fresh hair cut and the other ad has a black male model that has been freshly shaved with a fresh hair cut. They are holding the heads of men with overgrown beards and hair. The ad says "Look Like You Give a Damn...Re-Civilize Yourself"  Now, if you only look at the ad with the black model, you may mistaken the hair on the head he is holding as an afro. In my opinion, if you look at both ads, you can clearly see that they are referring to cavemen...not afros. Have a look at both ads for yourself. What do you think?
