When “white people” talk about progress in relationship to Black people, all they are saying, and all they can possibly mean by the word progress is how quickly and how thoroughly I become white! I don’t want to become white! I want to grow up! And so should you!
— James Baldwin, question and answer period (a question regarding progress in race relations), 1986 (via disciplesofmalcolm)

McDonald’s has long marketed to consumers of color as aggressively as any big corporation. It was one of the first corporate customers of Burrell Communications, the longstanding, highly decorated multicultural advertising agency. While we take for granted that there are lots of people of color in mainstream commercials, the world was much different in those awkward early days of culturally targeted marketing. But a journey through this history offers a (hilarious) reminder of what has and has not changed in the art of selling burgers to brown people.

What we found when we started digging through the archives was that McDonald’s was deeply concerned with black folks getting down. (Excuse us:gettin’ down.)
