For those people who believe that men with natural hair are never featured in advertisements or commercials, check out this screen shot from an AT&T commercial. I know, I know. Now that makes 2? *scratches head* No, seriously. I can’t think of too many examples of natural men in the media.
This commercial, from BBDO Atlanta, is part of AT&T’s Rethink Possible campaign. What do they want you to know? That AT&T has more 4G cities and towns than Verizon. *pow* Take that, Verizon.
Why don’t we see more men with natural hair in commercials? Are there not many actors with natural hair? Or is there a preference for clean-cut, bald/low cut black men?
