Raggaefest: Canada

Kindly sharing guest says:
At first I thought it was a good idea, in trying to encourage other people to visit the festival but then I though why are they perfectly anglo-saxons? Why would they not feature people of various ethnicities with locks? Each poster has either a white man or a white woman on it. The imagae attached are the two posters combined.

As a young black female who works in marketing as graphic designer in Calgary, Alberta Canada I am a minority. Sometimes ads bother me but I don't know if I am being too sensitive or if there is a sublte message there?

Craig'nem say:
I really don't have that much of a problem with it. I think they know who their primary target is and are shooting for it. Could it be more diverse? Yes. "Perfectly anglo-saxon," lol, true, true. Should it better reflect the width and breadth of the Reggae audience in Canada? Hells Yeah Mon.

Are dem try to dun us? No Mon!
