Bed Bath & Beyond pulls black jack-o'-lanterns following blackface complaints
Wilbur Aldridge, a regional director with the NAACP, says it shows "an extreme lack of sensitivity."


Yep, that's right, pumpkins. I guess some people thought they were racist pumpkins. ..... ... .. Pumpkins......
I guess black paint on seasonal objects are considered racist now. We are losing our freaking collective minds.

The article says that they named the pumpkins after workers and thought they were just seasonal decor. Silly worker, how dare they.

I looked and looked at the pumpkins to see if there was anything, and I mean
anything I found insensitive about them.... nope.. it's a pumpkin...

Remember my article about menstrual pads, and some people said so what who cares it's not a big deal, and I said just wait.
Here we go another day and another group outraged about pumpkins. If you read the article it says several people complained.

Get ready for this Christmas season, where your racist for selling a black Santa so you pull it from the shelves, just to have another liberal come in and say it’s racist your not selling it.

Sooner or later we as a society are going to have to collectively tell these people to shut up.

It's a game. What can you claim as offensive today, up the score. What might you discern from my choice of color print ? You know what..... I don't care, no appologies.

You see this a lot in media, the left scream for more representation for minoritues, women and lgbt, then the second there is a gay villain or a corrupt female politican, or a minority who jay walks the call it racist. They only want minorities and women in leading parts and then only as heroes. Having a black lesbian detective is good but a black lesbian serial killer is not.

The worlds gone insane. Completely insane.

This is as over the top stupid as it gets.

Ugh.

I, for one, am a big fan of pumpkins, particularly the Smashing Pumpkins.

I also like the pie, with whipped cream.

If that makes me racist, I can live with that.

Oh come on, you have to admit it's pretty bad. This is like talking monkey

The black pumpkins remind me of this AT&T slip:

There's probably research out there that will show the black pumpkins get smashed more often than the non-black ones. And the police do not respond as quickly when someone reports black pumpkins are being smashed.

However, I do hear the black pumpkins have bigger seeds!

Being offended is....well...a given right and shouldn't be a problem. The people allowing laws to be changed because some people are offended should be questioned.

In an industry where image is everything I understand no company is going to risk their good name.

We have this celebration called Sinterklaas...



Yeah, a white christian dude with black servants. I understand how this could offend some but my country still hasn't succeeded in banning this tradition because the people won't allow it to change.

Is it politically correct...no. Is it a century old tradition...yes. Which is more important and how much do you care?

Peace

Sadly, the inane, non sequitur dialogue we have just shared makes infinitely more sense that the very "real" premise of the thread.

Non sequitur is my special power! I didn't know the topic of someone painting a Halloween pumpkin black was so serious. Sorry, I will try to remain on topic for any additional posts.

I thought lunacy was the topic.

And yeah, my first thought, before looking more closely, was "why does santa have black elves"? Surely that's gonna trigger someone.

Welp, when you identify primarily with something idiotic like a color as a small child would that hasn't yet developed the necessary critical thinking skills to make sense of the world you tend to get offended and scared by very silly things.
