"Thank You, Ignorance" Nike Ad

"Remember when Don Imus said that racist shit about the female basketball team? Well, ads like this are shocking and responsive, unlike the rest of the planet that just get offended and make their eyes all big and don’t say shit. Another Sheena Brady homerun."

Thank you, ignorance.

Thank you for starting the conversation.

Thank you for making an entire nation listen to the Rutger's [sic] team story. And for making us wonder what other great stories we've missed. Thank you for reminding us to think before we speak.

Thank you for showing us how strong and poised 18 and 20-year-old women can be.

Thank you for reminding us that another basketball tournament goes on in March.

Thank you for showing us that sport includes more than the time spent on the court.

Thank you for unintentionally moving women's sport forward.

And thank you for making all of us realize that we still have a long way to go.

Next season starts 11.16.07.
