white people are afraid of accidentally doing something racist. but if that wasn't the intent, then why does it matter?

It's punishment for what our ancestors did. We walk on eggshells. That card is a pretty assinigned thing to complain about though. That woman is obviously ignorant. I believe that at one time the NAACP was necessary but nowadays racism isn't at the caliber that it was back in the day. If anything racism swings both ways now and more of the other way. Equal opportunity for blacks AND whites I say.

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

The NAACP, at least the LA chapter, just became a fringe group in my eyes.

I'd rather we didn't act like there aren't any fringe groups in other social arenas, but this is definitely one of them.

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

I heard Hoes ..........

Really though nothing can be done about ignorant interpretation of an inocuous greeting card.
If those proclaiming offense have a platform and make a legitimate case Hallmark must take action as they of course had no intent to convey a racist message.

What is bullsh-t is any assertion the Hallmark company knowingly created a racsist audio card.

Silly humans. Get a life/ Hallmark owes NO ONE an apology for that.
NAACP should concentrate on real racism instead of creating bad-will such as this. If they want to be relevant, well they should pick the battles that matter.
Silly humans.

Exactly! I can see how a mistake could be made in what they hear, but to expect an apology? They didn't do it intentionally obviously, and saying black whores in that situation doesn't even make sense...

oh I missed the apology wanting part, but I will give one for um:

We here at Hallmark are quite sorry you have misheard our science themed card and will make a donation to the UNCF because there is obviously a dire need for it.

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

The Dallas county commissioners went through this same crap two years ago. A chip on your shoulder combined with stupidity is becoming the norm. It's getting ridiculous.

From Dallas News:
Quote:
01:42 PM CDT on Wednesday, July 9, 2008

A special meeting about Dallas County traffic tickets turned tense and bizarre Tuesday afternoon.

County commissioners were discussing problems with the central collections office that is used to process traffic ticket payments and handle other paperwork normally done by the JP Courts.

Commissioner Kenneth Mayfield, who is white, said it seemed that central collections "has become a black hole" because paperwork reportedly has become lost in the office.

Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, interrupted him with a loud "Excuse me!" He then corrected his colleague, saying the office has become a "white hole."

That prompted Judge Thomas Jones, who is black, to demand an apology from Mayfield for his racially insensitive analogy.

Mayfield shot back that it was a figure of speech and a science term. A black hole, according to Webster's, is perhaps "the invisible remains of a collapsed star, with an intense gravitational field from which neither light nor matter can escape."

Other county officials quickly interceded to break it up and get the meeting back on track. TV news cameras were rolling, after all.

That whole situation deserves a supersized




I watched the video before I even read the article. I heard 'black holes' Some people (omg what do you mean some people?!?!) just hear what they want to hear though. The damn card's been out for three years for crying out loud. Must have been a slow racism week or something.

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

The card is saying that Grads can excel, not warning black "ho(l)es" about watching their back. I swear these people will find anything that says Black, and a quote, and call it racist.

But these ignorant people wouldn't complain if it said "white ho(l)es", would they? Because thats not racist either, amirite?

And BTW, I own the card, since I bought it a few months back on clearance for my sister. I asked her for it, and listened. I clearly heard Black Holes.

That group is outdated and overreacts over everything.
