Four days before the holiest time of the year for Christians, CNN.com actually asked, "How ethical is your Easter basket?"
This was the headline for the video of a CNN Newsroom segment Wednesday about child slaves being used to harvest cocoa in West Africa.
SUZANNE MALVEAUX, CNN ANCHOR: All right. So before you start buying the Easter chocolate this weekend, something you should consider, is it contributing to child slavery. Turns out that most of the world's cocoa fields are in West Africa. Hundreds of thousands of children are forced to work in those fields. David Mattingly takes us to one of the farms in Ivory Coast.
Someone should ask the CNN staff how ‘ethical’ their daily Star-buck’s Frappacino is!
Well Ms. Malveaux.. if you don’t want chocolate in your Easter basket... don’t eat it. Beyond that, it’s not your business.
Of course, this regime believes teens working on family farms are subjected to a form of “slavery” as well.
Chocolate or no chocolate Africa and every country in it is an unmitigated sh*t-hole for 90% of its population.
Think about that the next time Reverends Al and Jesse are demanding reparations.
Would they rather not have grown up in America?
I’m not defending pre-Civil War slavery, I’m just saying what no one wants to talk about: African Americans should kiss the ground they walk on (as should we all) that they are not in their sh*t-hole ancestral homes.
Interesting that the indirect connection between Christianity and African slavery is highlighted by the leftists but the DIRECT PRACTISE OF OWNING ACTUAL BLACK SLAVES in Muslim-controlled Africa is never mentioned by these commie leftist slugs.
Oh Brother... here we go!
These people really have issues
OK...that’s it! I’m convinced! Having seen the light,courtesy of CNN,I officially declare myself to be an atheist.
One final thought on this story:
How Christian is an Easter basket? What does an Easter basket really have to do with the meaning of Easter at all?
What is the predominant religion in these regions? Oh yeah, the Religion of Peace ..... meanwhile, WE are the ones who are supposed to wring our hands with grief.
There is only 1 religion in the world who still believes and practices slavery .... and it’s Islam.
Talk about about a bunch of feel-good lib tripe.
“ethical” - secularist defined “morals”, subject to change, of course, if they don’t fit the current agenda.
Actually, that's kind of what the kids in the "report" looked like to me.
If I wash the chocolate down with Pepsi,am I absolved?
I ask: How ethical is your news "reporting"?
But Hershey chocolates are made in Mexico. Do we want to put them out of work?
Earth to CNN, when you start reporting about the most inhumane society and religion on the planet (can you spell ISLAM?), we might start thinking you’ve got at least 1/2 room temp IQ.
Until then, shove it up your collective septic, smelly very big Obamas,
