Could be, and the rabbit on the right side looks eerily similar to a certain Robert E. Lee.



I think you guys might be onto something. I can't wait for the Peter Cottontail protests! I always knew I'd find a use for that bunny suit in my closet.

Notice that they put the black rabbit conspicuously close to that tree?


And he is the pose, "Hands up, Don't Shoot!" too.

Oh, and having Axel Foley say, 'Look man, I ain't fallen for no avocado in my tailpipe' just doesn't have the same ring.

Maybe if they remake it and make Axel Hispanic it might work.

a reply to: UnBreakable Well when these "snowflakes" fight for your freedom I hope you will show them the respect they deserve. So far you seem to not. Btw many of my friends died defending your right and would do it again. So thanks for calling them "snowflakes".

Axel Foley is a black guy, why you trying to take more jobs away from that ethnic group? Damn, I bet your house is just covered with these cotton decorations.

I have seen displays like that in the past, and not once did I think of slavery.


Then you're out of touch pal! Every time a grab a cotton swab from the jar I bust out with a hearty chorus of Cotton Needs Pickin'.


ETA: I had to sing this in elementary school in what was obviously the foundation upon which my future White Guilt would be erected.




That's a coincidence. When I'm picking out my ear wax with Q-tips, I start singing Zippy-Dee-Do-Dah like Uncle Remus in Song of the South.

Do you take off your hood first or put the Q-tip through the ear hole in it?

Thank God I'm 57 and will be dead, hopefully, within a few years, before this country completely goes to hell, thanks to these snowflakes. The generation of 18-25 year olds are the biggest bunch of wusses ever. They wouldn't know a real tragedy if it smacked them in the face with a two-by-four.


You sound just like my old grandpa."These kids today, I just don't know about them all, running around and cavorting and acting like a bunch a wild hellions, Kids today. Yep you sound just like him. The funny thing though is I'm 70 and he died 60 years ago.



So you agree with this ridiculous premise that cotton is offensive? They should then stop wearing clothes made out of cotton too.
Of course I do not agree with it, it's silly. I just do not see making a big deal of it.

I guess I'm missing it what does cotton have to do with offending people??



She was offended because slaves picked cotton a hundred-fifty years ago.

C'mon on now, it's probably faux cotton made in China.

Can't wait to see what is the next Triggering event.

We need to change the name of the Bureau of Land Management. It's Cultural appropriation.

All Bob Ross PBS shows should be banned for him wearing a Fro.

Q-Tip - (n) a highly racist, cotton tipped, cleaning device.

Q-tips? Those are just miniature versions of the torches the men in white cotton robes and hoods bore.

See. Totally racist, and few even knew.

The girl who cuts my hair had a cute cotton display in her shop. I asked where she got it. Hobby lobby. My first thought was "oooooo, trouble. That's gonna be seen as racist." That was last week. Did not take long. Smh.
