    next thing you know they are going to complain that the term "Black eye" is racist because it eludes to African American's being prone to violence and aggressive..

    They're running out of things to feel offended by, I think.

    Didn't another guy get offended by the phrase "Black holes" a few months back?

    THEY'RE HOLES.

    IN SPACE.

    SPACE IS BLACK.

    A HOLE IN SPACE IS BLACK.

    Why spend time working toward something progressive? No, let's send the whole race back a few steps and further the stereotype that black people get offended by everything.

    First off f%*k you cracker @$$ redneck muthaf^^&kers for denying the all power NAACP their say in this valid point. :lol 

    The NAACP needs to exist (just like PETA) but seriously, a greeting card, where the obvious context is the solar system? This pisses me off, because it damages their credibility when there are serious issues that they should address. I think this is a case where someone decided to make an issue of it before doing all their research, and they had already went so far, they had to roll with it.

    Facepalm, or fail? Hmm... Failpalm?

    I remember when they wanted to get rid of the word "Plantation" in "Providence Plantations" because it had a racial meaning to it. Yeah, because of when I think of a plantation the first thought that comes to mind is African Americans *sarcasm*

    Some people seriously need to get their hearing checked obviously.

    Maybe they'll reissue the card and change the phrase to "holes of African descent"

    It's always the racist people who pull the race cards. Guilty conscious thing.

    Sick people usually believe other people think like they do.

    Everytime NAACP bans something insignificant, a white woman turns sterile :inquisiti

    Not the first time "black holes" have been called racist, sadly.
