British makers Paladone have styled a line of cleaning products after carricatures of Dianna Ross and other black soul singers much to the chagrin of campaigners who feel the products are racially offensive.

I couldn't care less how “racially sensitive” they are...they're just plain silly,regardless of the race/gender/ethnicity/sexual orientation of the characters.

A sad but true statement.

What happened to the 'sticks and stones may break my bones' era I grew up in?

“It appears that the darker your skin is, the thinner it is”

The issue was raised by the soap dodging white chumps over at UAF. This probably offended more idiot white liberals then it did black people.

WOW....this MOOSe-chelle stuff just has to stop.

Here is the worst lady

and here is a moose

it should be blatently obvious, that, of the two, the moose is the more attractive, and would resent being compared to the first wookie.

They are making more fun of the ‘70’s than they are of Eric Holder’s people.

I don’t know about any students in Fairbanks. I was referring to United Against Fascism, the unwashed group of liberal white chumps that counter me mates in the EDL, what a load of useless tw*ts, they are only good for kicking up the backside when the coppers aren’t watching.

Wrong link; if you want them you can buy them through Amazon. Just look up Paladone. They have a number of interesting kitchen goods...

LOL, thanks for posting that. Now we see they have white ones too. I like that Punk one, he looks like he can really get down with the scrubbing.

I actually do not like brushes like this, where you put the soap in them, but these seem rather an improvement in that they’ll stand on their feet and not leak.
