Explore diversity with The (female) Wolf of Wall Street and Mad Black Men

It’s an interesting exercise to see how strange cultural norms are if you flip them in some way. So prepare to have your mind slightly boggled by these two videos. The first sees a gender-reversed version of the trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street (original: sexist or merely reflecting a sexist world? Discuss), while the second is actually a trailer for a six-part web series, Mad Black Men, which rather than swap black and white, looks at the 1960s ad industry from the point of view of its few black employees.

    It's an interesting exercise…in replacing good actors with bad ones.

    In all seriousness, “Women of Wall Street” doesn't seem that strange. Just not very convincing.

    The I-can't-believe-it's-an-actual-web-series “Mad Black Men” on the other hand is just a collection of lazy stereotypes.
