Wanted to clarify a few points regarding the GM scenario, as blogging can lead to misunderstandings.
In many ways, this event is an opportunity for us all to examine the systems, processes and hierarchies we’ve created in our industry.
MultiCultClassics has always strived to present diverse opinions regarding multicultural marketing. It is a complicated and even confounding thing, filled with contradictions and highly emotional components. The combination of professionalism and politics often leads to uncomfortable conversations. Conflicts too. At the same time, it’s imperative that everyone attempts to consider the situations from multiple perspectives, deliberately weighing the causes and effects of each action.
MultiCultClassics doesn’t presume to have the answers—nor do we represent any collective group.
MultiCultClassics also believes that every player is truly committed to doing the best thing—and the right thing—for all parties involved.

We now return you to our regular reprogramming.
