Los Angeles NAACP: It Is Ok To Admit You Were Wrong

The Los Angeles NAACP protested a Hallmark graduation card, mistakenly believing that the recorded message involved characters discussing "black whores." Instead, the characters were discussing conquering the universe -- including "black holes."

Racism undoubtedly exists, but not in this card. Nevertheless, Hallmark has pulled the card. I suppose it was not a best seller.

Here is news coverage from a local news station.

Too bad the NAACP doesn't attack the more obvious examples of racism and the degradation of black women... but then that would mean they'd have to make enemies of some black men, especially in the church.

Way to increase your growing irrelevance, NAACP.

I agree as well. Doesn't anyone remember the Boy who cried wolf anymore?
