The Los Angeles Chapter of the NAACP broke out their Black Leadership Scowls recently to protest a Hallmark Card which they call racist.
The space-themed graduation card plays an audio track which, among other things, refers to black holes as “ominous.”
Presumably, the NAACP regards the card as offensive to descendents of the supermassive space feature, who might rightly take umbrage at being labelled “ominous.”
It should also be noted that comets and zephyrs, typically considered “white” celestial phenomena, are not mentioned at all in the card’s message.
Okay, Now You’re Just Being Silly: NAACP calls Hallmark graduation card racist | abc7.com.
I read somewhere that the NAACP is also upset that Devil’s Food Cake is brown where as Angel’s Food Cake is white. My cousin thinks we should rename Devil’s Food Cake to “Hate Cake”. Personally, I think refering to a crappy generic cake as “Yellow Cake” is most racist.
Of course, naming the most tasteless and least-nutritious bread after caucasians kinda evens the score.
