Default So I'm Sitting In Marketing Class This Morning...

...and some guy from the College of Business is asking us to help with a survey of some new designs for a web page they are building. They show us some screenshots and ask for discussion. Mind you, these aren't even live pages. They are test pages with stock photos.

So the first person to speak is some girl who absolutely must compain that "there needs to be more black, hispanic and asian people" in the web pics.

Good Lord...is that all you do if you aren't caucasian? Look for areas where you feel "the quota" isn't being met???

You can just see me can't you? ------->

I'm amazed - we NEVER show comps without an ethnically diverse group of talent in the photos. That's so 1980s.

Everyone knows the world stopped being Caucasian when America elected the first black President - Bill Clinton.

You should have asked her what she has against Middle Eastern people. What a racist.

SOME people in this country need to suck it up, grow a thicker skin and quit trying to cause a bunch of crap for the sake of drama.

See, this is where we are today - an ethnicaly diverse, loving family of man. Epitomized right there in one big happy wedding photo.
All we need is to widen the photo a bit to show the Asian caterer and the hispanic gentleman in the background working the floor buffer, and we've covered all the bases.

Chef's fellow marketing student would be proud.
