14873: Increasing Quantity And Quality Of Ignorance, Hypocrisy And Cultural Cluelessness.

Campaign published a pathetic perspective from Heat Strategist Lindsay Wade titled, “My 2020 wishlist for diversity in advertising,” wherein she discussed the casting of racial and ethnic minorities in advertising campaigns and opined, “Instead of leading with diversity in quantity, advertisers should lead with diversity in quality.” The term “leading”—at least in reference to the advertising industry—should never appear in the same sentence with “diversity.” Unless the statement is emphasizing that adland is leading most professional categories in failing with and actively denying diversity. Additionally, there is a large and growing quantity of culturally clueless clowns like Wade presenting high-quality ignorance and hypocrisy in defense of divertsity.
