THE DAY I ALMOST QUIT ADVERTISING

I am so glad you’ve stuck with it. It bothers me when I notice black faces in commercials because it means I’m seeing too many white ones. America isn’t all white, why is TV? Most roles (in the shows and the commercials) do not need a specific race and it drives me nuts to see faces that all look like me (how boring).

Hang in there. Keep pushing until nobody bats an eye at a commercial with a black family enjoying their room at the Marriott or a black man shopping at Home Depot or anybody who isn’t a white man at Cabela’s.

Reality is diverse, why isn’t media?
