7074: Overreaction Of The Week.
A visitor took exception to MultiCultClassics’ observation on the racial/ethnic makeup of the judges for The Big Ad Gig. But it is worth noting that a major sponsor of the event is Microsoft. MultiCultClassics originally defended the company during the recent Polish Photoshop® scandal. Maybe the support was premature, as the judging panel—like the Microsoft Polish Website image—is seemingly devoid of Blacks or Latinos (Memo to Anonymous: Please realize “seemingly” is inserted to avoid presuming too much about the individuals based on photos and short bios). Also like the Polish Website image, a judge of apparent Asian descent was permitted to participate. Perhaps Microsoft will see this post and insert a Black dude into the judging picture.
