MIXLY Roundup: Nike, Antoinette Tuff, and a Really Cool Map

The Racial Dot Map


 
If you want an amazing illustration of diversity in the United States, look no further than this map, which was created by placing a single dot, color-coded by race, for every single man, woman, and child in the United States.
 

Antoinette Tuff


 

A middle-aged black woman prevents a young white man from becoming a mass murderer not with a gun but with empathy and understanding. With more heroes like this we might make it to 2042 after all.
 

Chelsea Manning


 
Sadly, the US Army private-turned leaker of classified materials request to be referred to by the first name Chelsea and the female pronoun has been met with derision from some and confusion from others. For a reminder of why such issues matter, look no further than this story, about the murder of a transgender reality TV star in Fontana. The young woman’s friends believe her killing was a hate crime.
 

#DiversityInLingerie


 


 
The trending hashtag of the week asks why there aren’t more lingerie models who are anything other than young, white, and very skinny.
 

NIKE Commercial


 

 
Just do it. This commercial makes the list for its impressively diverse cast. We especially appreciated the young Asian man taking on none other than LeBron James – a bit of casting that seems especially appropriate in a post-Yao, post-Linsanity era.
