How delusional do you have to be to come up with such stupidity.

If you want people to believe in your cause this poo is not the best way fyi.

This is yet another desperate attempt by them to try to make people think they are needed. Yes, there really is racism in the world, and there always will be. But there would be a whole lot less of it if these race hustlers would stop rubbing it in everyone`s faces -- especially when it`s something stupid like this where there`s obviously no racist intent. I wish they`d just stop trying to keep us all pissed off at each other and let us live our lives.

thats ridiculous its been out for three years, it must have seemed okay to the general public, but if some organization (not just the NAACP) gets a hold of something they can use for publicity, they will run with it for miles :P

diego, i know what you`re getting at, but trying to lump a whole group of people together because a stereotype exists really keeps people from being able to escape that stereotype. i don`t understand why the skin color of any person needs to be brought up, couldn`t we just call them (the people that act and live according to that stereotype) something else rather than bring up the fact that they may be black? i know a whole slew of people that are white or hispanic that i would consider a "thug" or a "gangster" which is really what we`re getting at here. alas, i have to leave now, as i am being replaced.

It`s not a race thing, it`s a cultural thing. It just so happens that the culture you identify with is heavily influenced by your race. And yes there are a lot of things about the prodominent culture the many black people call their own that i would flat out call inferior.

This sounds to me like it`s another instance of poor design and crappy quality components making it sound as if the voice coming from it says something entirely different than what was intended, just like that singing doll I heard about a few months ago that pissed off a parent who thought it said, "I want some f@%$ing pie!" (Was it a Miley Cyrus doll? I don`t remember.)

I listened to the recording of that card several times and I can tell why someone might think it says something racist because the sound is muddled and unclear, but the rest of the card`s content doesn`t really fit with that.

Hopefully this will make Hallmark see that shelling out more money to produce a "talking" card with better quality sound will in the long run be cheaper than settling a lawsuit with someone who thinks it`s saying something offensive.

It makes even less sense when you know what the entire message is. It`s about telling increasingly large things that the person has graduated. The world, Saturn, all the planets...and black whores?

On the plus side, this obviously proves that anti-black racism is a thing of the past in the USA. If it wasn`t, these people wouldn`t have to be so pathetically desperate to find something, anything they can somehow misinterpret as anti-black racism no matter how retarded it makes them look to do so.

What the $#@$#%! I understood it the first time, without needing to read the theme on the card. I understood "black holes", and I understood "planet". I didn`t hear any "R". This is a prime example of making something out that isn`t there. You know, like canals on Mars, mirages, and intelligence in politicians.

This kind of misunderstanding will never stop. The blacks are programmed to constantly search for things to complain about. Is it genetic deficiencies?

Are these people really as stupid as they`re pretending to be? Or are they just bullies imposing their power on others?

I think the latter is more likely. Biological group power organisations are never nice and will always abuse power if they have it.

This message was clearly about black holes and planets. Even a person who has difficulty hearing and/or thinking should be able to work out the word `hole` from context. Unless they have so much difficulty thinking that they can`t understand context.

Also, let me go ahead and assure you that hating someone over something like color (I mean really?) is just beyond childish. IMO, if you`re going to hate someone, you should have a good reason. Then again, I will always believe in basic human rights. One of those rights is the right to think what you want to. That doesn`t mean that your thoughts aren`t f*cked up, sick, or just completely wrong, but what goes on inside your head is for you to decide, and no one else. (This goes hand in hand with my drug speech about how it`s my damn body, and if you want to control what`s done with it, you better make sure I`m dead first).

@Shnard Unfortunately that is the power of money (and of knowing people). The point I was trying to make is that there are equal rights. The rights are there, and the laws to enforce those rights are also there. It is the individual people, including the individuals employed by certain businesses, that circumvent those laws. Of course, any minority could lodge a complaint against those individuals, but it is a lot less likely for each individual complaint about racism to be taken seriously when you have dumb asses like the NAACP crying their asses off over a Hallmark card. Like I said earlier though, while I think it is ok to hate or dislike someone, for any reason, it is not right to harm another unless he/she is attempting to harm you. So even if I were to hate black people, as an employer, I wouldn`t let that hate dictate whether that person got the job. If I did, it would be against the law, and against that person`s rights.

In the first and last point, you are making the assumption it is because of racial prejudice. There could be many factors to explain those results. Also, you should provide a source link when you refer to any study, especially one that make a claim such as that African Americans are paid less for the same job.

Pizza - Things have certainly progressed and rights are becoming more equal for many, but the examples you used are the same ones used by many to argue for why racial discrimination no longer exists. Studies have shown that when compared to Whites, Black people are still less likely to get a job when competing with a White applicant, likely to get paid less for doing the same job, less likely to be called back for an interview (even if their name simply sounds "Black"). As far as affirmative action, I`m not going to argue about whether it`s right or wrong, as you pointed out, that`s a matter of opinion. I`m curious though why people aren`t so up in arms when White applicants who are less qualified than other applicants are admitted because their Dad knows somebody or they have some connection with the school that gets them admitted even though they shouldn`t based on their grades, etc. The thing is, this happens far more often and yet I don`t hear the same outrage.

"and one could argue pretty effectively that equal rights still don`t exist"

Seems to me like we have a President of mixed heritage, we had a black secretary of defense, and a black secretary of state, who also would have had a good running at the presidency, had she tried. Also, there is equal opportunity employment, so if there are not enough minorities working in a bussiness, but they only have one employment slot left, then I have literally no chance of getting that employment slot. There are also grants and financial aid packages that are there specifically for minorities, and colleges MUST accept a certain percentage of minorities in ratio to the amount of white students at the school. I don`t know, but it seems to me like things have come quite a long ways.

Pizza - I guess I see where you are coming from, but to me it makes sense that there are groups that would look to bring the types of covert/institutionalized racism (though I agree that the current example is a stretch) that continues to be so prevalent in the U.S. It also makes sense to me that the NAACP and other groups like it would be so hypervigilent about protecting the rights of persons of color since not that long ago (and one could argue pretty effectively that equal rights still don`t exist) persons of color did not have the same rights as Whites. As far as Hallmark goes, I`m not too worried about them, they`ve got plenty of other crappy cards to sell.

Wow this is just pure blatantly racist... towards white and black people. The fact that they WANT so badly to hear "whores" is just an insult to race relations in general. Clearly it says holes. So clearly. Ugh NAACP. Ugh. You make me tired. You want the world to be racist so you can exist. So you have a reason for existing.

@Shnard What is right or not is a totally different discussion based purely around philosophy. My beliefs say that if you aren`t hurting someone, whether it be physically, financially, or emotionally, then it probably isn`t wrong, but that is kind of a blanket statement and there`s more to it than that. Also, I never said anyone has taken any rights from me, simply gave a warning as to what would happen if anyone did try. However, just look at this card business as an example. How much do you think it`s costing Hallmark to have developed and produced those cards that they can no longer sell? That is ridiculous. And I wouldn`t say that the fault is that those NAACP idiots can`t hear right. I would say that it is because the NAACP is so easily able to play upon people`s fear of being hated or offended, an extremely childish fear.

I had to create an account just to comment on this particular video. My god, people are just so damn stupid I can`t even believe it. Honestly, I really don`t see what the big deal about racism even is. If I f*cking hate you, then who really gives a flying f*ck why I hate you. It should just be enough to know that I hate you. And if you really thing you`re going to stop racism by pointing it out and screaming like a f*cking child every time you hear it, you clearly have the mentality of a five year old. Everyone has the right to think how they want to. If I want to hate you because you`re black, thats my f*cking choice, and the day you try to take that right from me will be the day you die. Not because your black though, but because you tried to take my rights from me simply because I offended you. Now, I`m not racist, but this is how I think. Who the f*ck is anyone else to dictate what someone else must think or believe. If you think you have that right, you can go f*ck yourself.

This reminds me of that Derren Brown investigates programme about a ghost hunter guy. He thought that he could hear ghosts speaking when it was just noise. He wanted to pick out names and words, so he was able to. Derren couldn`t and I couldn`t. It`s the same with these people - they want to hear it and are listening for it, so they can. To everyone else, their claims sound ridiculous.

The ghost guy was serious about though, he started shouting and swearing because this guy whose job it is/was to analyse audio in court told him that it was just static or interference that he was hearing.

I think that the ghost guy died before the program was aired though. :(

AntEconomist - I agree, I think it is always important to question the "reality" that is often presented by the various arms of the media. However, I would argue that although some examples of racism certainly make the news, the reality of racism in the U.S. is vastly under-reported and even minimized. As a White person it`s easy for me (and other Whites) to ignore or be unaware of racism on a day-to-day basis, a luxury persons of color don`t have. Of course White`s get sick of hearing about racism when we don`t/can`t recognize it when it happens.

"Are you really trying to say that there is more evidence that racism doesn`t exist in the U.S. than evidence that says it does?"

I`m saying that observation bias exists -- reports of racist behavior tend to make the news while reports of non-racist behavior tend not to make the news. Combine this with (some) people`s expectation that no one should question the claim that racism is rampant, and you run the real risk of believing (absent recourse to any data) that the problem is much larger than it perhaps is.

this is lame. clearly the word sounds like HOLES. and in the context of universe, space and planets it is reasonable to use the word black hole. if they were talking about women in some way and THEN started randomly talking about black holes - there would be grounds for complaint but this is just stupid. Everything in the world is not some grand white supremist secret agenda to disrespect the black woman. The people complaining here are idiots, irrespective of the colour of their skin.

The second A in NAACP stands for "advancement." Pretty sure this doesn`t do the trick.

... are they bloody serious? Because if they truly, truly are serious, they aren`t accomplishing ANYTHING by doing this.

Actually - to be perfectly honest, this kind of reaction makes me rather sad. It`s pathetic. It`s absurd. They are looking for things where there is nothing to be found. And it obviously says holes. WTF. why would a planet have to look out for a whore for anyway?! STUPID.

Can`t believe Hallmark removed the cards either. They could have easily fought the case in court if it came to it, but instead they gave NAACP the win and encouragement to keep this sort of attitude up in the future.

You`ve got to be kidding me. Please take your pick from a giant list of causes to fight for...of which you will notice "hearing `whores` instead of `holes`" falls to item #1,124,967.

When I first heard it I was listening for foul things and STILL hears "Black Hole" which makes sense since the solar system has black holes in it.... this is ridiculous. The NAACP is obviously a bunch of narcissists since obviously everything is about them. even random graduate cards O_o

It clearly says "Black Holes". Either they are clearly going senile and losing their hearing, or they just want to make a scene.

Make it easy - ban the use of the word "black". Or for that matter any use of the black colour itself.
Stupid attention whores.

It`s black holes idiots. Quote from the lady with the mic "This sounds like kids laughing at blackness. Again." wtf? We can`t use black to describe anything that is colourless, out of fear of being racist? Sometimes the african-american community really pisses me off.

NAACP: shut the hell up. Go away, please. You are ridiculous. If you can`t do anything but react to silly things in a comprehensively stupid manner, just lock yourselves in your homes now and give the rest of us a break.

This reminds me of that Derren Brown investigates programme about a ghost hunter guy. He thought that he could hear ghosts speaking when it was just noise. He wanted to pick out names and words, so he was able to. Derren couldn`t and I couldn`t. It`s the same with these people - they want to hear it and are listening for it, so they can. To everyone else, their claims sound ridiculous.

The ghost guy was serious about though, he started shouting and swearing because this guy whose job it is/was to analyse audio in court told him that it was just static or interference that he was hearing.

I think that the ghost guy died before the program was aired though. :(

Before the video pointed out "you black holes" was meant to sound like "you black whores", I heard "you black holes", and still hear "you black holes".
