    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Anyone who can't hear "black hole" from that card is trying to hear something else. This is really pathetic.

    .
    Just ****ing shoot me. How much more of this crap is going to qualify for a news cycle?? These idiots are running with the premise that Hallmark Cards is publishing/promoting a card with audio citing black whores.

    The theme of the card is "space". The audio is "black holes". Plus the fact that Hallmark states the card has been on shelves for 3 frigging years.




    btw......If this had been a racist card, the kids would have said "hoes". Nobody sez whores anymore.

    Black holes are offensive to black people? At this rate i'm going to have to start asking for african-american russians at my local bar, which will be sure to confuse some of the natives.

    Stupidity to the highest degree. Anyone claiming this card is racist has lost all credibility. What's sad is Hallmark is caving to these idiotic complaints and pulling the card.

    This is hands down one of the most pathetic things I have ever heard. I mean seriously, you would think the NAACP has better things to do... guess not.

    Being a white man, I am gravely offended by any picture/reference to a "white horse" since clearly the intent is to demonize our women and talk down to white people! Pathetic, yet hilarious.

    I think these clowns are doing a great disservice to those who originally founded the NAACP. The NAACP should be put into retirement, they are no longer needed nor are they relevant.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    really? REALLY!!???
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    OH. MY. GOD.

    Liberals, American society is not racist. Try this at a local bar: chat up a stranger, talk for about ten minutes, and then make a racist comment. I'll bet you money that EVERY ONE OF THEM WILL EITHER CRITICIZE YOU OR WALK AWAY WITHOUT SAYING ANYTHING.

    GOD.

    First of all, the NAACP doesn't speak for all liberals. Second of all, I dunno. If i was talking with white person and said "Blacks need to get off welfare and get real jobs", a good segment of people would agree or at least not get offended.
