For BHM, the United States Postal Service mailed it in with commemorative stamps.
"Nobody black designed that," I said to myself. It's awkward, uninspired and visually unappealing. Shocker and surprise, it's designed by a white guy. http://virtualstampclub.com/lloydblog/?p=2791uspsstamps.com/people/greg-breedingWay to honor Black History Month, USPS.
Underwhelming and limp. Huge missed opportunity there.
Just like the ad industry, there are a couple of white art directors that oversee everything and have a vice like grip on what goes in or out. If you see a half-assed black (or any kind of ethnic) stamp with mailed-in and uninspired artwork, it always traces back to those specific white A.D.'s.
