    NAACP Urges Hallmark to Pull 'Racist' Card From Shelves

    really? this is fucking insane!

    A space-themed, talking Hallmark graduation card is being pulled from store shelves because of the cardís reference to a black hole.

    But members of the Los Angeles NAACP say the message sounds like "black whore" in the card's audio recording. That's how they hear it, and they say it's racist...

    I once bought my dad a Fathers' Day card from Walgreens' "Ebony" section. It was hilarious. And no, I'm not racist. My dad (like most people's dad) is the whitest guy alive... So when a card is telling my dad to "take it to the hoop" (literally that's what the card said, no joke), us Eastern European assholes will get a laugh out of it.

    And it's especially frightening to think this is all over something that could sound offensive. Is it or isn't it?

    Are they just wanting to find shit all the time? It clearly says black holes. And the NAACP thinks it says, black whoes? Truly awsome. Education rules...try it sometime. So now Hallmark has to dumb down gretting cards so people won't get all offended if said people don't know what a cosmic black hole is. Awsome! Has Al Sharpton spoke on this? With his burly dew and his shuck and jive talk? I gots to hear his take on this. Out.

    Amazing. Hallmark should send the NAACP a card with "Hoops" and "Yo Yo" telling them to go fuck themselves.


    Great week of threads in here. Muslims building a mosque at Ground Zero, the US Constitution having a warning label attached to it, and racists from the NAACP making a fucking issue over a greeting card.

    I'm guessing that the people that are running the NAACP didn't pay attention in Science class and don't watch Star Trek, or any Sci Fi for that matter.
