Giving Credit Where Credit Is Due 


Crediting original sources is important. And crediting original ideas is important. And JC Penney isn't the only company holding an "Anything But White Sale":


Undergear annual clearance sale

Undergear is in the midst of their annual men's underwear sale called the "Anything But White Sale". Rest assured, you whities fans -- there's some white in there for you, too. There are discounts on items in every department -- workout wear, underwear, fashion and swimwear -- with some prices cut more than 50% off.



So let's see if there have been any other attempts to link an "anything but white" sale to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There are, all at the familyeducation.com web site:

Celebrating diversity might be the single most important step toward everyone's ultimate goal: world peace. Join us as we talk about diversity, tolerance, and raising open-minded children.

So who is familyeducation.com (FEN for short)?


Welcome to Family Education Network, the best of the Internet's content, resources, and shopping for parents, teachers, and kids. Launched in September, 2000, the company's mission is to be an online consumer network of the world's best learning and information resources, personalized to help parents, teachers, and students of all ages take control of their learning and make it part of their everyday lives.

Family Education Network is built on a strong foundation of assets from the international media company, Pearson plc (NYSE:PSO), as well as educational properties from leading educational publishers and technology companies. Family Education Network has business offices in New York City, Boston, Chicago, and Paramus, NJ.



And no one in the business offices saw a problem with running this ad on a Martin Luther King Jr. web page. Argh.
