Re: Tuesday’s nyt.com article, An Image Popular in Films Raises Some Eyebrows in Ads:

How do you read this nyt.com image, featuring this frame from a Universal Studios ad?

Would it make any difference if these advertising accounts were in the hands of black ad people, or even black-owned agencies?

What does make the gregarious, heavy set black women such a cultural icon?
