It’s rare – rare indeed – to see a mixed race couple pictured in US advertising. Or even as illustrations to media pieces – unless the news is actually about a mixed race couple. Just one of those things. I know we mutter about how much is done in the UK but the historical experiences really are very, very, different.
So a fun question here. Business Insider is definitely writing about the US. But has the picture editor (presumably a European) just not grasped that American experience? Picked something from Getty Images and thought no more about it? Or is there actually a change going on?
