Graduation is meant to serve as a time for celebration as a youth makes a transition in life towards a higher plateau.
With many swarming to local stores for cards, the NAACP has called for one particular “greeting” to be pulled, stating that it’s content can be deemed as being racist.
It is a graduation greeting from Hallmark that says, “Hey world, we are officially putting you on notice.”
The card features two characters that allegedly are using offensive language towards the Black community and warning them to watch their back.
According to Hallmark, when contacted by phone, it is merely a misunderstanding as the focus of the card refers to the solar system and uses the term “black holes” in regards to the universe.
Clearly, however, that’s not how the card was received.
Listening to the card and hearing their response, do you believe they have a legitimate case, or are they simply making a mountain out of a molehill?
