    Video: What if Gender Roles in Advertising Were Reversed? via magazine.good.is

    SherryThomasWhittle11 months ago

    I truly understand and sympathize with the over all arch of this message however, what most people who watch this and became outraged probably didn't even think about is the effect that these and other adds have on MINORITY women and men. NOT ONE brown skin face was shown in this clip. Advertisers don't even think about how NOT seeing yourself can damage the psychie of young and budding minds. Even the pics of the men don't represent my brownskin friends. NOT A SINGLE BROWN FACE! Not an African American, Native American, Indian, Hispanic...NOTHING!!! So, when I see this add and see the statics regarding the dehumanizing of women it just seems that this is a Cauasaian issue only. African American women can't possibly feel dehumanized in advertising because they're not even being humanized. tough i guess...
