Continuing down the list of things people find strangely racist, we find Jack-O’-Lanterns that are painted black, because 2019 is stupid and we continue to stray farther from God.
A New York law firm recently came under fire due to placing black Jack-O’-Lanterns in their front porch in Nyack, New York, which some people decried was “racist” and “insensitive.”
Mary Marzolla, a partner at Feerick, Nugent, MacCartney Law Offices, said that “we understand that someone complained about [the black Jack-O’-Lanterns] and so once we got word of that, we immediately took them down.” Marzolla also explains that the pumpkins were personalized with the names of each of the firm’s partners and were not intended to offend anyone. “We represent people of all colors and faiths, and we would never do anything to exclude anyone from any community.”
A local NAACP director, Wilbur Aldridge, says that the display shows an “extreme lack of sensitivity.”
I’m not exactly surprised that an NAACP director would complain about something like this. These people find just about everything offensive, except for the systemic genocide of black people in the womb.
But regardless, the law firm subsequently queried why it was that they came under fire for displaying the pumpkins when they bought them from Bed Bath & Beyond, putting the spotlight on that company.
As a result of that, Bed Bath & Beyond apologized for having sold the “racist” Jack-O’-Lanterns and pulled them from store shelves, adding that any offense was unintentional.
Director Wilbur Aldridge also decided to attack Bed Bath & Beyond, decrying that it was “equally as offensive” that the retail store would sell the product as the firm was for displaying it.
Now, I don’t ever tend to put up decorations outside my home during Halloween, only during Christmas and even then, only the wreath on my front door, but nothing more than that. But if I wanted to put a black Jack-O’-Lantern on my front porch, why would anyone take offense to it? The lanterns that the firm used were not all too different from other ones. The lanterns had faces painted on them that gave them a white mouth, white teeth, white eyes and a white nose. What’s so offensive about that? How is this equal to blackface?
In my opinion, this is just bullying the law firm. Of course they meant no offense! NO ONE INTENDS OFFENSE WHEN PUTTING UP DECORATIONS! It’d be like saying a display of the birth of Jesus was racist because the characters have brown skin and Muslims could be offended (although there are other “arguments” people make about taking down such decorations). It’s utterly ridiculous and the only person here that is in any way offensive is the NAACP director.
The fact that he can only see things through the lens of skin color tells me race is all that is in his mind. And the fact that he would push the law firm and the retail giant to pull the “racist” lanterns off their porch and shelves respectively tells me the guy is just a bully. How exactly is this necessary? Who does it offend? Why does it offend? Because it’s black? PLENTY OF THINGS ARE BLACK TOO!
The very computer monitor I’m typing on is black. Is that racist? My phone is black. Does that make it racist and make me racist for having it? Or is it only racist if I put a face on it? If I put a face on my phone, does that make me racist? Is a black cat racist? Because it’s both black and has a face on it.
So then why would A BLACK JACK-O’-LANTERN BE CONSIDERED RACIST?!
That’s really a rhetorical question. We know precisely why it’s considered racist. Not because it fundamentally is racist but because people want to flex some social muscle and bully others into submission.
The NAACP is, unsurprisingly, full of Leftists. Leftists, in case one can’t tell, are massive bullies. I don’t think I have to make much of a case as to why they are. My entire website highlights time after time after time and case after case after case of Leftists being bullies in some way or another. Whether it’s bullying Trump, bullying celebrities, bullying regular people, bullying libraries, bullying businesses, bullying the law-abiding citizens, just about their entire ethos surrounds the tactic of bullying.
It’s a means to an end and it’s disgusting. And it’s totally insincere too. Let’s not forget that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam GOT CAUGHT WEARING BLACK FACE IN A COLLEGE PICTURE and is still governor of Virginia. Let’s not forget that Canadian PM Justin Trudeau got caught in black face THREE DIFFERENT TIMES and he recently won re-election as PM.
What this tells us is that it’s okay to be racist, to wear blackface, to offend people, so long as you are 1) a Democrat/liberal/Leftist and 2) apologize, even if you do not mean it in the least.
No one can sincerely argue that the law firm or the retail giant intended any offense when putting up or selling the black-O’-lanterns. But still, they catch fire for it. And yet, Northam and Trudeau have both worn blackface, which I would argue is FAR more offensive than a black Jack-O’-Lantern, and they do not get punished whatsoever, in fact, only get rewarded for it, as is the case for Trudeau.
Racism means nothing if consequences aren’t equally shared. If the law firm and Bed Bath & Beyond are punished for the black lanterns, why aren’t actual people who intentionally wore blackface? If it’s okay for the racist liberals to do it, it’s okay for EVERYONE to do it (and let’s not even get into the whole “lynching” fiasco, which is another example of Leftist hypocrisy, given even they have used the word which they claim is offensive, but actually is not).
Every time someone is accused of racism, while at one time was a heavy charge, it means absolutely nothing anymore. When someone is accused of being a Nazi, while that was a serious charge against someone in the past, it means absolutely nothing any more (unless they actually are a Nazi, of course).
These words have lost all meaning due to overuse. Of course, for businesses who risk profits, they will bend the knee to these Leftist bullies and do whatever they want so as to avoid unnecessary conflict. But for me, when someone is accused of being a racist, that means absolutely nothing to me (again, unless they actually were being racist).
Trump has been called a racist since the beginning of his campaign and there isn’t a single time when he has proven or even slightly suggested that he was racist. The charge itself holds no value anymore, which is why some Democrat candidates have insisted on saying something “stronger” than just calling people racist.
The fact that that is even being discussed is proof that what I say is true. They wouldn’t need to come up with a stronger charge than “racist” if the charge of “racism” was in any way as effective as it once was.
But to reiterate my original point, the black Jack-O’-Lanterns are NOT ACTUALLY RACIST! Certainly, not to anyone who has any sense of reason or logic or even a remotely thick skin.
