Asian Girl Alienated in Neiman Marcus Ad

The other day, my friend forwarded me a recent “Back 2 Cool” email blast from Neiman Marcus. She scoffed at the ad. I kinda scoffed too.

It sure does look like the little Asian girl dressed in darker color palette on the side is being alienated by her non-Asian peers dressed in brighter colors, joyfully gabbing about High School Musical or whatever kids that age talk about. All the while, our little Asian friend is sulking — and that girl in the pink looks very suspect.

I’m not saying that Neiman Marcus did this on purpose — I’m just observing.
