lululemon’s Store Window: Rosa sat so Martin could walk. Martin walked so Obama could run. Obama ran so our children can fly.

Our Georgetown Store Window by lululemon athletica.

I’ve been lululemon’s customer for the longest time, and this ad just pisses me off. It’s really disturbing. Who are those “our children” they’re referring to? Do they mean “African American children”? I mean, really, should we all wait on others “like us” to achieve greatness so we can rise up on their coattails?  This really sums up the racial plight here in this country.  Get up out of your seat and take charge of your life, don’t wait for others to pick you up!    

Gimme a break. They went too far with this ad.

  1. Have you seen the OTHER side of the store’s window on Third Avenue in NYC that has 3 mannequins pulling their pants down and holding up the words “NO MORE BUSH” ?
    I found this in very bad taste. I imagine someone at the company thought it was clever, but really – its vulgar. I imagine the Obamas would not want to explain that vignette to their daughters.

  2. I LOVE THE AD and personally do not see anything wrong with it. It goes with the logo and is very inspiring!
