40 years of ads highlight McDonald’s troubling relationship with black America

Attention, black people – McDonald’s really wants you to eat their food.

Whether you’re “gettin’ down” on some Chicken McNuggets or “lovin’” the return of the McRib, it’s important to recognize not just the tastiness of their artery-clogging delights, but how “real” and “deeply rooted” in your community the company is. They even sponsor a basketball tournament!

For many, this is no secret. The fast food giant hasn’t camouflaged its aggressive targeting of minority consumers, whether through eye roll-inducing linguistic coding or strategic community initiatives. But until NPR’s Gene Demby curated this 40-year series of Mickey D’s ads, the pattern’s long-term persistence hadn’t fully been explored – not to mention its devastating consequences.

Nas Offers Tech Scholarships to Minorities with Google and Microsoft
Nas partners with Microsoft and Google to fund scholarships in technology, specifically targeting African-Americans and Latinos.

On Thursday, General Assembly, a New York City-based tech educator, announced the launch of the “Opportunity Fund,” a new initiative from Google, Microsoft, and Nasir Jones that will provide scholarships to students who have been historically under-represented in the industry such as women, African-Americans and Latinos. Nas, who has recently co-founded the venture capitalist firm QueensBridge Venture Partners stated “Education, careers and opportunities in technology should not be limited to any one demographic, and I’m happy to support minorities who will see doors open to them as a result of participation in this program.” Students eligible to receive scholarships awards must agree to commit at least 100 hours mentoring local high school students through a number of nonprofits groups including All Star Code, Black Girls Code, CodeNow, Coderdojo and ScriptEd. 
Applications for the scholarship are being accepted through May 7th.

"We were bumped from two planes, and white passengers were put on those planes. We had to stay overnight in one city before we could catch a bus the rest of the trip to Daytona Beach. We came from California — and I knew what discrimination was — but it wasn’t a legislated thing like it was in the South. When I got to Jacksonville, I just walked into the white ladies’ restroom just to recover some of my dignity and my sense of myself because I was horrified by it." - Rachel Robinson [x]
