The average ad-industry employee likely agrees the diversity issue is a very unfortunate situation. One that should be remedied. By someone. But on a daily basis, he’s likely to carry on, figuring for the most part the industry will evolve and that his nonwhite coworkers are content with the state of adland.

I read an article a while back, that talked about how minorities often leave the ad business altogether and start freelancing in lieu of banging their heads on a glass ceiling. I thought that was crazy. Until I tried to get a job in advertising. Now I’m freelancing. 

Funny how that works.
