13134: Ad Ageism.

Advertising Age extended its sudden interest in diversity by publishing a piece titled, “Ageism in Advertising: How One Man Beat the Odds,” featuring Dave Shea, who’s becoming the poster child for old guys feeling like victims of discrimination. Sorry, but White elders such as Shea still have a better shot at landing a job in advertising than young, vibrant and qualified minorities. And it’s sad that Advertising Age’s inclusive coverage features everything and everyone except non-Whites.

Wow. That must be really frustrating for white men to be treated like People of Color in advertising, locked out and ignored.

If only they had done something to diversify the industry when they were riding high in their glory days. Hmm.....
