Take a good look at this collection of pictures. Don’t Rush. Study it. It is actually a screen grab from a media imagery organization you are recently familiar with. But note two cognitive ethnicities/races present; three black ethnic pictures, and four white.
Do you notice something about them?
I visited this a few days ago, and something about the web page just bugged me, but I couldn’t put a finger on it. I kept going back and looking at it again, and again.
This screen shot is from the “Case Studies” web page of Julison Communications, the media communications group that attorneys Benjamin Crump and Natalie Jackson hired to represent the interests of Trayvon Martin’s family.
Remember, this picture collage is from a media consulting firm that specializes in “messaging“, and “strategic optics“, and media presentations. That is their forte… Their expertise.
Now look at the represented imagery of the three “black” ethnic families, and contrast it to the representative imagery of the “white, or non-black” imagery.
Is there represented anger? If so, who, or more importantly what, is represented as angry?
And, perhaps even more importantly, what does that tell you about the anticipated messaging you can expect to stem from within the professional firm who view these optics, these specific optics, as representative of their work? Their “case studies“.
