Despite this being an appallingly bad photograph, probably enhanced with some dodgy Photoshop work, it is truly offensive to us on several levels. According to ‘Commission For Racial Equality” webpage: http://188.8.131.52/sitearchive/cre/diversity/map/westmidlands/index.html
“The West Midlands is by far the most ethnically diverse English region outside London, according to the 2001 census data. Nearly one in seven of its population (13.9%) are from ethnic groups other than White British.” So what’s with the ‘ever so white family then?
Nice to see the marketing company responsible for this glorious example of trashy advertising has done their homework, not. Just in case you are wondering where this is from; it is a poster/advertisement for Wolverhampton’s Wulfrun Centre Shopping Complex.
If anyone from the Wulfrun Centre would care to contact us we’d be happy to explain why this is wrong on many more levels – we’ll even re-brand you for nothing – we feel that strong about this...
