ProFlowers.com - Possibly Discriminatory Advertising, and a Token Male - Why Not a Dog Named Boo?
I was interested to see that Proflowers had a Mother's Day commercial on tee-vee today that had only white people in it. One white man, three white women. You may be aware that other companies are also targeting white women this Mother's Day. Is this a conspiracy?
What about Hispanics, Mexicans, African Americans, Asians? Also, unless I am a mistaken, a man isn't a mother. What was he doing in there? If he was a token representative of the male sex, he could have also been made Asian and killed two birds with one stone, not that that is a theme you would want to incorporate.
I fully support your decision to remove your advertising from that wing-nut Rush Limbaugh's programming, but I question whether or not your advertising is discriminatory and catering to quotas to include males. Please don't send me coupons, I will NOT be using them.
