AAF Names One White Woman, One Black Man to Hall of Achievement

On Tuesday, AgencySpy reported that the American Advertising Federation announced this year’s inductees to the Hall of Achievement. In all, eight of you were chosen and entered. But, um, we revisited the list of inductees, and noticed a lot of…white males. That’s fine, and we have no doubt each and every person in the group is more than deserving of the honor, ethnicity, sex, creed, religion et al aside. Seriously.

But we just wanted to make mention of the pattern.

The list includes white guy Jon Gieselman, white guy Thom Gruhler, white guy Chris Kempczinski, white guy Penry Price, white woman Liz Ross, white guy Troy Ruhanen, black guy Stephen Stoute, white guy Andrew Swinand.

So there that is.
