A&F gets its comuppance


Abercrombie & Fitch settles for racially discriminatory hiring practices.

I say yay for getting them to hire fairly, although I question bringing their advertising and marketing into it. They want to advertise (in essence) "by whites/for whites?" Go right ahead - it's their crappy, stupid, short-sighted marketing plan, and bad business at that. But hiring and firing? No way.

And yet I somehow see more A&F clothing on African-Americans than I see on white folks, gay and straight alike.

You'd think they'd do some basic sales demographics or something...

Kind of like the Tommy Hilfiger phenomenon. Society's assumption is, of course, that everyone wants to be white, and sadly a lot of minorities buy into that (consciously or no). Ugh. How sad.
