    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.

    NAACP says Hallmark owes them an apology? :laugh2:
    If they apologize for that, I'll boycott them myself. :thumb:

    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.

    "Advancement of Colored people" does sound ancient in itself. How about "The advancement of everything but the absence of color".

    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.

    They are jumping the shark again........
    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.

    Good Lord.....................

    Hallmark never would do that.


    The subject is talking about the Universe,
    Maybe these people need to take a science course
    and find out what a Black Hole is, how embarrassing
    Next Crayola will be apologizing for making black crayons

    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...
