14842: Sexual Harassment And Racial Hypocrisy Make A Perfect Holiday Gift—And A Perfectly Awful Video.

This video created by Lucky Generals for timeTo is bullshit on at least two levels. First, addressing sexual harassment during holiday parties at White advertising agencies by depicting a Black man and ultra-rare Black woman demonstrates a complete ignorance of reality. However, it does unintentionally underscore the added disregard, disrespect and predatory harassment Black women can face in the industry. Second, producing a video to communicate the message is also appallingly stupid—where was the spot intended to run to reach its audience? Call it contextual harassment.
