I guess smileys aren't as effective as purple text.

As long as the overpopulation of lawyers need victims, This frivolous nonsense will never cease. It's amazing how easy a few bucks can magically heal even the deepest of wounds.

Hallmark you get the Hugest rolleyes ever. Why pull the card? It just panders to the cause of furthering hatred. I say stand up and be counted - "Dear NAACP, The card says black holes, not whores. Apologies if there was any confusion there... stupid.."

Re: This is such crap.. people whine about anything

Haha, I just watched Flickoflash's Al sharpton video, he's a funny guy! I saw Al in a Louis Theroux documentary which was funny as hell so i'll link it here, its amazing to me that people can get by, make a living, out of stirring up hatred. If you have a moment watch this, Louis Theroux is a living legend!!

louis therouxs - wierd weekends black nationalism

Here is the balance:

MEGAVIDEO - I'm watching it

Seriously, I mean everyone has some pre-conceived notions about people based on race. They don't have to be bad, just pre-conceived. It's human nature.


I think ALL people are a**holes...regardless of color, so...

BTW, purple is the color of sarcasm.

Re: This is such crap.. people whine about anything

It's true that many of us have some preconceptions about race. The lower school that I went to was local to all the embassies so we had allsorts of different nationalities. I don't believe anyone who says that they don't notice differences between people - there are obvious differences and I have to admit that I noticed that the black kids were better at everything - sports, academic work, absolutely everything, and not only that, they were really polite and well spoken. I grew up thinking all black people were some kind of supermen! I've since learned that good and smart people of any race are few and far between!

Re: This is such crap.. people whine about anything

I don't believe there was any racist intent simply because corporations do not take political stands on sensitive issues unless they are 'majority safe'. Hallmark quickly pulled the cards because I'm sure their lawyers looked at it and advised it could possibly cost customers and sales in the long run. Pulling the card was a no brainer. They aren't in business to make a stand for 'common sense', they are in business to sell cards.
