Customer ire has pushed Target to remove its ´ Baby Daddy´ greeting cards from stores ahead of Father´s Day. Frustration with the cards first started approximately 2 weeks ago when Facebook user Takeisha Saunders posted a photo of the card. She said: ´You CANNOT be serious Target!!!! Really!!!?!!!!? This was the only Father’s Day card that featured a black couple!!!!!!´ (Snip) The sand-colored card features what appears to be a couple of color and the phrase ´baby daddy´ in maroon lettering. The inside of the card, as noted by a user on Saunders´ post, does include the message: ´You´re a wonderful husband and

Comments:
The beef must be that the cultural appropriators at Target denigrated the respected ghetto term "baby daddy" by adding the highly offensive word "husband" into the mix.

I hear it all the time on TV: "My baby´s daddy" and "My baby´s mama."

It´s a cultural thing - black culture.

Truth hurts.

"Baby Daddy" is a term that is used exclusively for black men.

That is not a racist thing to say, because it´s true. The women may be different races, but the men who impregnated them, and who they refer to as "Baby Daddies", are always black.

It´s an Ebonics sort of term.

I swear there are people that must have a hobby of going out and looking for things to be offended by!!!!!

If they just hadn´t mention "husband" it would have been more accurate. Apparently, the card designer is white and lives in the bubble.

Now it seems the live in´s are all ´fiancees"
who they will never marry because that stops the checks.

Urine trouble now. FDNY fire marshals arrested a squatter who sparked a massive blaze in Staten Island, urinated on the flames in an attempt to put out the fire, then ran off without telling anyone when that plan failed, sources and officials said Tuesday. Hector Meza, 40, was staying inside a building on Stuyvesant Place near Wall St. in St. George when he accidentally knocked over a candle about 5:15 p.m. on June 6, according to authorities. The flames spread and grew to a three-alarm inferno that ripped through several buildings on the commercial block. Meza bolted and never alerted

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on Tuesday that the U.S. is pulling out of the United Nations’ main human rights body because of longstanding complaints the panel is biased against Israel. “For too long, [the U.N. Human Rights Council] has been a protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias,” Ms. Haley said in announcing the move during a joint appearance at the State Department with Mr. Pompeo. “Regrettably,” she added, “it is now clear that our call for reform was not heeded.” The move comes a day

A group of people who grew increasingly belligerent at the ambulance response time for a man who had a seizure in the parking lot of a Pleasantville convenience store repeatedly screamed at and taunted police officers on Father´s Day, authorities said. Police arrived at King´s Food Market on North Main Street 28 seconds after being notified of a 911 call about the man just before 4 p.m., but it took 13 minutes for an ambulance to arrive, authorities said.

A deranged straphanger sucker-punched a subway conductor in Brooklyn on Tuesday — the latest in a recent string of assaults on MTA workers. The unidentified man socked a Q train conductor after his Brighton Beach-bound train pulled into the Prospect Park station at 11:54 a.m., MTA officials said. The rider was acting erratically while aboard the train, according to a witness, who said the lunatic got off at Prospect Park and, without warning, reached through a window and struck the middle-aged conductor in the head before fleeing the station. (Snip) There have been at least seven assaults on MTA workers

A woman brandishing a 10-inch kitchen knife allegedly screamed “I want to kill all you Jews” as she chased a group of children who had just left a synagogue in north London. Police arrested a 47-year-old woman on suspicion of a racially aggravated public order offence after she was tackled by neighbourhood watch volunteers in Stamford Hill, which is home to Europe’s largest Hasidic Jewish community. She is said to have run after a group of around 14 children aged between eight and 13 on Sunday night while shouting antisemitic abuse. (Snip) “This is another worrying incident of knife crime

A Honduran national in the United States illegally has been charged with killing two women in Miami over the past three months and dumping their bodies on the street, police announced Monday. Juan Carlos Hernandez-Caseres, 37, was arrested Saturday morning for the murders of Ann Farrin, 41, and Neidy Roche, 39. Farrin´s body was found by paramedics Wednesday morning in the 3000 block of Northwest 25th Avenue, between Northwest 38th Street and Northwest 37th Street.

Tronc is dead, long live Tribune! The media company that owns the Chicago Tribune and the New York Daily News is considering ditching its much ridiculed name and returning to the original just two years after its rebranding. Tribune Publishing rebranded itself tronc Inc (the lowercase t is deliberate) in June 2016 in a buzz-word laden press release that was greeted with much lampooning online. (Snip) Tronc (it’s hard to avoid the incorrect capital) would be “a content curation and monetization company focused on creating and distributing premium, verified content across all channels”, the company wrote in a much lampooned press

Wichita, Kan. — A federal judge has ruled Kansas cannot require proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote, a setback for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach in a case with national implications for voting rights. U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson sided with voters Monday that Kansas cannot require people who register to vote to provide documents such as a birth certificate, U.S. passport or naturalization papers. The decision in a couple of consolidated cases makes permanent earlier temporary rulings. The judge said the Kansas requirement violates the right to vote under the Fourteenth Amendment.

President Donald Trump defended his strict immigration policy that is resulting in the separation of children from their parents at the border, declaring that he won’t allow the United States to become a “migrant camp.” “The United States will not be a migrant camp, and it will not be a refugee holding facility,” he said during a meeting of the National Space Council at the White House on Monday. “You look at what’s happening in Europe and other places, we can’t allow that to happen to the United States. Not on my watch.” He also continued to blame Democrats for the “zero tolerance” policy announced by

The long knives (and brass knuckles) are clearly out for EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

His efforts in rolling back job-killing regulations have been a prime force in driving the Trump economy and the media and Democrats can’t stand it. (Snip) The most volatile and damning allegation was that Pruitt used his position as Trump’s man at EPA to twist arms at the University of Virginia Law School to get his daughter admitted. The implication is clear. That Pruitt’s daughter was admitted despite her

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights.

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email
