    I used to think that some white people were just dumb when it comes to racist advertising (implicit bias and microaggressions), but now I'm beginning to wonder if it's truly ignorance or are they being intentional. AT&T stepped in a pile of elephant poo back in the 1980s when they depicted people around the world communicating through it's company and when it came to Africa, they showed images of monkey's and Black men chucking spears on the plains of Africa. Well, they got called out and was made a public spectacle. They then decided to invest millions of dollars to correct its mistake and came out with a video series, "African American Women: Let's Talk". Maybe these companies should be made to invest money in Black communities or HBCUs as a form of reparations.

    We already know what Adidas was thinking but what was Pharrell thinking? I hope he learned from this. Would mean a lot if he came out with a statement of apology and really meant it.
