LOS ANGELES --- A space-themed, talking Hallmark graduation card is being pulled from store shelves because of the cards reference to a black hole.
But members of the Los Angeles NAACP say the message sounds like "black whore" in the card's audio recording. That's how they hear it, and they say it's racist, KABC-TV in Los Angeles reported.

So I guess when you open it up and listen, you’re “playing the race card”?
Remember when they wanted to ban Snapple drinks because they swore it was a slave ship on the label?
I hope with every fiber of my being this was recorded by an asian person who has trouble with the letter “l”. Throw it right back in the NAACP’s face.
Funny but I never heard of the NAACP demanding that rap music be pulled from the shelves. Ain’t no denying the misogynistic language there.
Rather than spend the money to fight stupidity, Halmark niggardly folds.
Sounds to me like they are saying ***holes! I can see why the NAALCP is upset and feels like they are being “dissed”. Besides, it’s a graduation card. Something none of them have ever received.
They think Dixie is a racist word too.
LOL, good one!
Sounded like holes to me. Hoops and Yo Yo are fun, nutty little characters. Someone needs a hearing aid and a brain retread.
Thanks for posting. I missed it the first time. The black guy complaining isn’t exactly the greatest when it comes to enunciation.
The “race card” is more widely known by it’s formal name: “The Joker”
they’d be even more upset if they knew what that actually was. It is a wood cut of the Boston Tea Party.
Now, I want to buy one of these cards.
They got a chip on their shoulder.
A perfectly good word 'niggardly' was called racist; a perfectly good book "Little Black Sambo" was called racist even though it's about India.
Ignorant people should keep their mouths shut and not advertise their ignorance.
Did I hear that recording correctly...”Allah is the black ho.”?
This doesn’t surprise me. The A-holes wanted to make ebonics a language so they could get gupmit money.
Truly idiots, money grubbing pos’
**Ignorant people should keep their mouths shut...**
“”Tis better to remain silent and be thought a FOOL...
Than to SPEAK and Remove All DOUBT!!””
Would the idiots like to change the name of black holes in space also.
No end to stupidity.We need a NAAWP. What’s good for the...
NAACP: We’ll find racism everywhere....whether it’s there or not. Count on us.
Maybe Hallmark should come out with a "Well, you gave it your best shot. You can always get your GED in prison" card.
Forrest Gump(?): Stupid is as stupid does.
They had to change the name to "No Place Like Sam's" due to charges of racism;even though the name "Sambo's" was a combination of the founder's names:Sam (Sam Battistone) and Bo (Newell Bohnett).
But seriously - Hallmark, you dumb as*ses. Why did you back down?
It's time for someone to step up to the plate and spit in these peoples faces.
There has got to be stop as such frivalous law suits. Good gravy.! Insanity reigns supreme.
Is it a crime yet to mention fried chicken and watermelon in Febuary?
When will this nonsense cease!
Actually the effort to get a government grant to teach a few English teachers to speak Ebonics came from a white lawyer. I met that lawyer at a party and she proudly told me about her efforts, (I am an American of African descent), thinking that I would be in favor of the idea.
I explained that it was an idiotic concept and would pay English teachers who had failed to teach the English language to black kids to teach other teachers to speak the gibberish those kids spoke.
It is just another example of left wing insanity that allows idiots to feel as though they are compassionate and totally free of any racist feelings.
Of course that is bulls*^#t. But what do you expect from liberals?
You are a true American!
I thought it said “Turn me on dead man.”
And the government needs to pull the Racist NAACP from any relevance.
I bet references to “dark matter” really upset them......
Well hell how stupid can you get
Everyone knows black holes are racist - they devour everything
just like the DNC
Remember black Barbie, sold for $1 less than white Barbie.
Who will stop the hate ????????????????
“A perfectly good word ‘niggardly’ was called racist; a perfectly good book “Little Black Sambo” was called racist even though it’s about India.”
AND a perfectly good movie “Song of the South” because it was set in antrebellum South; a pefectly funny comedy show “Amos and Andy” because it portrayed blacks as lazy, dumb and scheming. Both are still on youtube.
And if anyone wold be able to step up to the plate, it would be Hallmark.....they basically OWN the card market.
Where are people going to go to boycott?
Great point. If they’d learn English they’d know it says “hole” instead of “whore”.
Must use proper Ebonics when discussing NAACP
Exactly, this is the soft racism of low expectations that the last Administration spoke of. By excusing under-performance in schools, teen parenthood and other destructive behaviors, liberals are trapping yet another generation of AA children in a life of poverty and government reliance. Unfortunately many so-called black leaders like Sharpton and Jackson are so caught up in their own power and glory they seek to destroy anyone that steps up to speak the truth, Bill Cosby and Juan Williams are but two recent examples.
This sums it up quite well:
Yes, I should of used Ebonics. D’OH!
