We were working on a project for a non-profit that works with kids.
Client: We absolutely cannot use this photo. I like the others, just not this one.
Me: Why’s that?
Client: I don’t want to feed into the stereotype that all black kids play sports. I don’t like the letterman jacket he’s wearing.
Me: Oh. He’s not wearing a letterman jacket, that’s an iStockphoto watermark. These are just mock-ups, it would be removed on the final project.
Client: I guess we can use it then. As long as you’re sure it’s not a letterman jacket.
