I opened my email inbox this morning to find an email from the Gap, advertising this sale:
“Sound the trumpets! We’re going to celebrate one of the most forefront leaders of the civil rights movement by slashing prices on baby graphic T’s!!” Yes — absolutely — because what better way to celebrate a man who helped organize the nation to change.
Oh sure, — the man who sacrificed his own safety and eventually his life for the preservation of the safety and the lives of millions of others.
Yep — one of the finest speech writers underlined by his famous “I Have a Dream” speech at the 1963 March on Washington. Gap has a dream, too, and it’s 1st quarter earnings so who cares if our sale undermines the integrity of American history and heroes?
Boo. Today’s gonna be a long one.
