The second the words "Nappy Headed Hoes" spilled from Don Imus' aged lips, advertisers bolted to get out of the way of the air waves (to keep quiet). However, here we see a brand with balls that has decided to step into the controversy and actually make a statement. No surprise it's Nike. Here they offer fresh perspective and insight into these touchy times. I'm not trying to stir stuff up again, but props to W+K for just doing it.
