Oooohhh Paula...

Smh.

I have MANY words for and about Ms. Deen...but I'll keep it brief.  

*DISCLAIMER: These are MY opinions, alone.

Paula, oh Paula.  WHAT were you thinking about?!  The fact of the matter is, you used a discriminatory term  for the purposes of discrimination.  What's sadder than discrimination, is when it's being done with a veil of innocence.  Paula, the fact that (I think) you honestly do not see what's so wrong with your 'apology', your 'explanation' of your one black friend (y'all gotta see this), and your 'understanding' of the way things are...is what, in fact, makes YOU what you 'so affectionately' called your employees.  Smh.

The 'I' in Team

Russell Athletic's commercial aired during the recent NBA Finals (what a series, whew!).  


The tagline is, "Together We R."
BUT, what stood out to me was (what I think is) the clever play on the familiar saying, "there's no I in team," by stating, "I play for team."

YES.

Live Long & Imagine: Canon EOS

This spot by Grey Global Group, Inc. was [for lack of a better word] inspired.  I absolutely love it!


I think this spot does an excellent job of inspiring the creator in each of us, while selling us on THE tool that will enable.  THIS, ladies and gents, is an AD.  Well done.

I was gone last week, but now I'm back...

Look, I'll just say this...


WRITER'S BLOCK IS THE DAMN DEVIL.


Now, here's a post to kick off this week....

Agent Smith for GE


GE's new software is innovative.  You know how I know?  Agent Smith...yes, THE Agent Smith from the popular film franchise, The Matrix, told me so.


I totally know what's going on here LOL.  A celebrity-esque endorsement, cute.  Very cute GE.
Good for you!

Racists Love Cheerios...Too much.

Who doesn't love Cheerios?

On Tuesday, May 28th Cheerios (General Mills) released an ad that depicted a multi-ethnic family, a mom (who happens to be Caucasian), a dad (who happens to be African-American), and an adorable child (who happens to be of a mixed ethnicity)

...People. Are. PISSED.  

Watch the commercial below and see how you feel.


  1. Racism is STUPID.  No matter who it comes from black, white, purple, red, green, yellow, brown...it's ALL stupid.
  2. This commercial is just plain cute.  There's no other way around it.
  3. People have the right to demand representation and recognition in the media and from companies they support.  Why wouldn't people of multiple races?  ...I'll wait.
Here's a comment posted on Reddit: 
"Shoving multi-culturism down our throats when we know it fails.. awesome"

How is this commercial shoving ANYTHING down your throat, besides Cheerios?  Multi-cultured people EXIST.  Deal.  

Look, let me calm down.  Share this post and your thoughts!
