Politically correct toothpaste

Anyone who travelled in South East Asia before the 1980's will recall the distinctive packaging of Darkie brand toothpaste. I still have an original pack in my collection. Political correctness oblige, Darkie became Darlie and finally changed from Black to White. The eclectic look was lost but amusingly the Cantonese name still translates as Black Man Toothpaste. You just can't win!
