12720: C’MON WHITE MAN! Episode 41.

(MultiCultClassics credits ESPN’s C’MON MAN! for sparking this semi-regular blog series.)

The Adweek story detailing the Treasury Department’s plan to put a woman on the $10 bill included the following quote from Base Design Partner Geoff Cook: “What is so compelling about a woman being selected as the face of the new $10 bill is that it reflects the changing tide toward equality in America, opening the door to Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman and Caitlyn Jenner.” Really, dude? You’re going to put Rosa Parks and Harriet Tubman in the same company with Caitlyn Jenner? Oh, and a quick peek at the Base Design lineup shows Parks and Tubman would have had a much tougher time landing a job there than Jenner. You can safely bet $10 on that.
