Disney Needs More Black Employeeson May 1, 2012 at 6:46 pm
Or at least one. I can only assume there is not a single black employee in the entire marketing department or this would never have made it to market:
Really, Disney? At no point in the entire creative process did a single person say, “Ummmmm…don’t you think people might find that offensive?”
I’m a little late on this one. This happened back in March and I can’t believe I didn’t hear a thing about it. Humph! I think this proves that all major corporations should have at least one black executive on staff to tell them when they’re doing something intensely stupid:
Clueless white executive: “Hey, we’re introducing a new fried chicken meal with grape soda and we’re going to create a new mascot! We’re calling him Chicken Lovin’ Leroy!”
Mandatory black executive: “I think you’re a f*cking idiot.”
See? Problem avoided!
