Don’t just play the race card, give one.

by editor on June 7, 2010

Far be it from us to make generalizations, but based on the latest actions of the NAACP, one can only conclude that black skin is also very thin skin.

The organization has forced Hallmark to pull of those talking graduation cards. They claimed it was raaaaacist.

Hallmark was baffled by the complaint. They said the card’s theme was the solar system and was meant to emphasize the graduates’s ability to take on the universe, even something as powerful as black holes.

“The intent here is to say that this graduate is not afraid of anything,” explained Hallmark spokesman Steve Doyal.

“And you black holes, you are so ominous,” the speaking card said. “Watch your back.”

“That was very demeaning to African American women,” intoned Leon Jenkins, a spokesman for the Los Angeles NAACP. “When it made reference to African American women as whores and at the end, it says ‘watch your back,’”.

“You hear the ‘r’ in there. ‘Whores,’ not, ‘holes.’ The ‘r’ is in there,” said Minnie Hatley, another Los Angeles NAACP rep.

“It sounds like a group of children laughing and joking about blackness, again,” said yet another paranoid NAACP member.

Naturally, Hallmark gave in and is pulling the card from all its stores.

Is it just us or is this vaguely reminiscent of the incident a few years ago when a school official got in trouble for using the world niggardly and the incident more recently when black groups complained that the day after <s>Christmas</s> Thanksgiving was referred to as Black Friday.

Lunacy. Absolute lunacy.

That’s some funny stuff! what a bunch of morons! Here’s an idea, maybe if they are so outraged about black women being demeaned, they can take their self righteousness right to the streets WHERE BLACK MEN ARE REFERRING TO BLACK WOMEN AS BITCHES AND HO’S AND MAYBE THEY NEED TO STOP CELEBRATING A CULTURE THAT PROMOTES WHAT THEY ARE PROTESTING
starting with crap, I mean rap music!!!! I’M SO PISSED ABOUT THIS STUPIDITY BEING GIVEN ANY RESPECT!!!

I agree. In France one year a little LITTLE boy french boy actually got next to me as I was walking and started singing I got ho’s… (Area Codes by Ludacris). I looked like him like he was the most disgusting filthy insect in the universe and moved on. I was doubly mad because I was wearing baggy jeans and baggy t shirt there is NO WAY that he would have found it appealing nor comparative to the hoochie mama outfits on rap videos so the ONLY reason he did that is because I am brown skinned. He also did it because he thought I wouldn’t be offended BECAUSE the hoochie mamas in the videos do not seem to be offended. It was sickening.

However even though he shouldn’t have done it and he should have been respectful after all I was still fairly young but an adult in comparison to him, I realized that I couldnt really be TOTALLY mad at him. I was mad much more at BET and every single channel and radio stations that plays songs like that and videos of black women (who are in it for the money and fame and hence make it hard for respectable black women everywhere) parading like ho’s all over the place. It is sickening. That sort of thing distorts the reality of what a black woman is all about (or what she CAN be).

Those older ladies in that video are they shocked and humiliated that young black men exploit young black women that could have been them many decades ago? Are they mad at the black women who act like ho s in front of a camera for money and notoriety? No… they get mad at a card that says black holes and before that spoke about the sun and other celestial things. Failed to make the connection because it is all colored in their ignorance and inability to get beyond racial division which is exactly what progressives want.

I am sick of it and I don’t know what I can do personally other than to keep being respectable to the best of my abilities. Perhaps showcase as I grow older to girls that it is better not to live like a ho and to clear their minds of the stupidity and to work to clean in house first before going out of house and making a ruckus especially where a ruckus wasn’t necessary to begin with.

I just wish it had said all you black beyotches or something so there was a reason for the stupidity(it still would have been funny). …

These people who are race baiters, black, white, whomever are going to find reasons to race bait in every part of society. They have a black cloud hanging over them!

In the video even with the volume being low and distorted I still heard holes. Wow… sometimes people need to chill and have a cocktail and take a bath and soak the stupidity away.

I keep saying that Barack (Barry Sotero) Obama will set race relations back 100 years! Mark my words. This is the most simple minded thing I have heard in a long time! Try to think clearly NAACP….black HOLES are astronomical mysteries in the S-O-L-A-R S-Y-S-T-E-M. This political correctness is just sick…and so so STOOOOOOOpid.
