    #4 Your welcome @patrickscullin But as many BLM protesters and Civil Rights pioneers said.... I didn't realize holding a can of Pepsi would have saved me from a, b or c. I agree in general with the lack of empathy as referenced in the Kent State remark below but, I would also warn of this issue across the board... Susan Sontag one of my sheroes wrote about this as "The Other" in "Regarding the Pain of Others". https://monoskop.org/images/a/a6/Sontag_Susan_2003_Regarding_the_Pain_of_Others.pdf

    While I cannot condone the use of Kendall Jenner I understand (from POV) that this is similar to me to the 70's version of Coca-Cola's "I like to give the world a Coke" campaign and the ending is (in my POV) a nod to the infamous photo of Jan Kasmir (flower power movement). I think it is a betrayal of her memory and her legacy then and now. I wish this had been done better but, this reminds me and all of us there is work to do.Yes, advertising and media should step up. The Superbowl commercials were lackluster and only one dared to talk about the immigration debate. 84 Lumber's http://fortune.com/2017/02/03/super-bowl-commercials-84-lumber/ very subtle yet powerful and evocative message spoke to me as a daughter of a Mexican immigrant who mother was given amnesty by Ronald Reagan mind you....and who herself as the liberty to evoke her 1st Amendment right to free speech. My mother a proud US Citizen..fully vested in everywhere and has been since 2000. Yes, there are POCs everywhere in the commercial because this is the America and not what the current government wants us to believe. Are the signs myself and others have made to protest since Trayvon Martin creative? Yes. They are. Are we trying to be social change agents. Yes, we are. This affirms to me the BLM movement is relevant, protesting is relevant and we need to #resist http://motto.time.com/4695248/vietnam-war-protester-trump-pepsi/

    Straight out of a marketing playbook derived from a selection of advice to be found on social media about branding and "authenticity". The only thing the creators of this ad missed was mixing in recovered historical footage of students being shot down by inexperienced, scared and panicked National Guardsmen at Kent State University. Because it's possible for an eight-year-old to drive an automobile doesn't mean you should let them. Thanks, @Patrick Scullin, for bringing this to our attention. Some serious lessons to learn here.

    Excellent, Patrick! Dr. Bornstein later that day proclaimed all Americans to be in terrific health, thereupon bringing the healthcare crisis to what Donald calls a winning conclusion.

    In a related story, all of the money set aside for the “The Tremendous Healthcare Plan For All Americans Act” can now be redirected to building a really long wall since those cheapskate Mexicans aren't going to chip in.
