12050: Hawking For White Girls.

Came across the 2012-2013 advertisement for Atlanta Hawks Cheerleaders depicted above and couldn’t help but think of Bruce Levenson’s 2012 memo, wherein the recently resigned owner noted “the cheerleaders are black” before stating, “I have been open with our executive team about these concerns. I have told them I want some white cheerleaders…”

Was the ad actually part of a diversity recruitment campaign designed to find the White women Levenson demanded?
