A woman in Texas berated Hobby Lobby last week for selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.
This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative
about raw cotton... A commodity which was gained at the expense of
A little sensitivity goes a long way.
PLEASE REMOVE THIS "decor".
Daniell Rider posted her complaint to the craft stores Facebook page:
There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way.The post received close to 15,000 shares and 160,000 comments. The user, Daniell Rider, then received backlash for her sensitivity and responded to her critics:
PLEASE REMOVE this decor.
All those who are offended by cotton being a decoration need to quit buying any product made of cotton!And other users quickly came to her defense, one adding:
What difference does it make if its a decoration or part of a product. Youre being hypocritical if your offended by cotton being a decoration and not offended by any product made of cotton.

that’s insane. Cotton has been grown and used in clothing since 5000 BC in the Indus valley civilization in India. You can’t boil everything down to a couple of centuries.
Just when i think people cant get any dumber... they do... sigh...
What about Egyptian cotton, or muslin?
Maybe someone will correct me on this....but these cotton display items from Hobby Lobby...are they even bought from US farmers? Is it possible these are imported in from Egypt?
Why didn’t Obama do anything about this? Was he an Uncle Tom?
Since it comes from petroleum products, we have to switch from exploiting African labor to exploiting mother earth!
Racism is why there are so many Black people in America.
I say we send them all back to Africa. Because Racism.
Those cotton-pickin’ people are starting to really annoy me.
I first thought that this was in reference to the Senator (I know, bad joke, lol).
Yeah, I think maybe I’ll go out and buy a nylon Confederate flag.
I’d be neked.
Hey hey! Ho ho! Cotton clothing’s gotta go!
The madness will never end
Start with throwing OUT all your clothing that contains cotton and all pill bottles that have cotton in them. /s
I saw a cotton decoration like that just the other day in a little home decor shop in my little town — a shop owned by a black woman.
This idiot complainer has clearly never heard of the “modern farmhouse” look that’s been popular for the last several years. But hey, now she can claim some cred with the Resistance, so it’s all good. /sarc
That should make the oil industry very happy!
That picture is totally offensive!!!
How many trees were assassinated to make that barrel????
Look at all the slaves in this video picking cotton!
