SDCP is coming around to the idea that it's OK to not be uniformly white, Christian men.
I think you may be giving them more credit than they deserve. They hired Dawn because they received resumes after their (stunt) ad went wrong. Don said something like she was the most qualified. But let's not forget she's a secretary, not a black man working on accounts or a creative.

And as to Michael Ginsberg, I don't think of it so much as an issue because he's Jewish and they are in New York in a creative industry. The popular campaign, "You don't have to be Jewish to love Levy's (rye bread)" started in the early 60s. More and more entertainers were Jewish. Would the same be true for a law firm at that time... I don't believe so.

Yeah, maybe. :)

Right. What was Roger's line? "Turns out everybody has one." As if a quota were being fulfilled.
