Frederic Begbeider (former creative director in a big french agency) depicted this and more generally the absurdity of the ad industry 15 years ago in his best seller “99 francs”.

He (the author) quit, you didn’t. According to you, it’s all about the client forcing decisions against the agency’s will, but it’s not. It’s about agencies delivering the best talent to promote visions of society in favour of the richest companies, mostly led by white males. You may fell a bit better after writing your inspirational-ish post but it doesn’t make you any different from your white clients. You’re just another ad man
