USMC advertising to minorities and women is wrong! We've done it right in the past!
Every service on the planet except the USMC is going hardcore. They're showing warriors doing warrior shit. Even the freaking US Army commercials has Soldiers doing helocasts and then taking a zodiac to the beach.
That shit stirs the soul.
That shit makes your dick or ovaries hard (hmm do ovaries get hard?)...forget the science and I don't care about the science YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!!
But have you seen the latest USMC advertisement?
What do I see? Old people (nothing wrong with that....its coming my way), families, urban centers...NOTHING THAT WILL STIR THE SOUL OF YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN THAT WILL DO VIOLENCE ON BEHALF OF THEIR COUNTRY!
I understand the outreach to minorities. You want more minorities in the Corps? Ok, but how about you ask the Marines that are serving or have served what attracted them to the Marines. You want more women in the Corps? Ok, but how about you ask the female Marines that are serving or have served what attracted them to the Marines.
Filling ads with more brothers than I saw in any Battalion that I've ever been to is not reality and is not important anyway. Same with females, hispanics, asians...pick your poison!
The Marine Corps is and SHOULD REMAIN a place to test your mettle. An institution that you need more than it needs you.
This current advertising scheme is a sin and disgrace. Want to do it better? Want to appeal to minorities while keeping the culture/ethos/warrior spirit intact? Ask me. Even better? Take a look at what you've done in the past!
