13823: Talk To The Hand, #AWNewYork.

Not sure what the hell this banner is trying to say about the 2017 Advertising Week scheduled for September 25-29 in New York City. Actually, the banner—along with the website—says Madison Avenue still has a long way to go in terms of understanding digital. Maybe all the hands are hinting at the smorgasbord of events, which include plenty of diverted diversity diversions promoting the White women’s bandwagon and a single seminar titled, “CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.” Gee, what an oxymoron. It’s like holding a get-together headlined, “KKK for Black Lives Matter.”

This is an industry that would literally rather tackle hiring the mentally disabled, than take actual steps to address racial diversity.

Chew on that for a minute.

A real long minute, as it's the new pet project of Advertising Week this year.


The list of everyone and everything that's more urgent to Madison Avenue than hiring, promoting and retaining black and brown people grows by the day.
