In the photo above, you can see two different baby sling products made by Baby K’Tan.

On the right, you have a loving white couple with their baby all bundled up and cozy.  On the left, a black woman, who is not coupled, but is carrying a child. If one were to use deductive reasoning, the box with the black woman could imply that she’s a single mother, and the box on the right was a happily married white couple.

Peeps on Twitter caught the photo and have been calling out the company all morning.  But is the photo just a small picture of the bigger issue when it comes to black women in advertising? Or is the company trying to be all inclusive when it comes to depicting black mothers?

Clutchettes, what do you think about the photo packaging on the product?
