"The NAACP says their message is clear"... What message? They're run by idiots? Seriously, it took the NAACP 3 YEARS to hear holes as whores?

It is definitely HOLES....

Some hoes need to realize that those cards don't include Boss speakers and thus, the sound quality can be somewhat sketchy depending on how many times the thing has been used, or how it's been handled.

I distinctly heard "holes" as well. There was no "r" in the word "holes." They're only hearing it because they want to hear it. The report said that card has been around for three years. Just now it's come under fire?

It's not our species we really need to question. It's organizations like that which we do. If no one pays attention to them, then they get people to pay attention at the cost of a company or person who did nothing wrong.

Very true, but i cant agree with hallmarks decision to crumble under the slightest pressure [pulling the card off of shelves]
To me, that signifies that with a little complaining with no solid evidence in favor of you, you can make a company do whatever you want in effort to not cause any further problems.

In this age of political correctness though, you're automatically the bad guy. And the worth kind too. You're *dum dum dum!* a racists!

Oh look. The NAACP is calling something else racist. How quaint.

Because of this.


Has anyone ever noticed how there are organizations like the United Negro College Fund or whatever it's called? And other vast African American organizations, such as the NAACP? They make these organizations for their race only, yet we're still the racists? I believe if we had an all-white organization, we'd be called racists. Pretty sure. OH WAIT.


If someone started an organization called something like the Unified Caucasians of America college fund, we'd be FRAGin' imprisoned. Now don't get me wrong, I'm not a racist. I've lived with black guys, and they are some of my favorite people. One of my best friends is Hispanic. But some of this stuff is getting a little out of control.

Does the NAACP not have any real discrimination to worry about?

I want to star a NAAEA (National Association for the Advancement of European Americans) and start freaking out about little pointless stuff, anybody else in?

I don't see how the NAACP could be so confused. Only black people say "ho" in the first place.
