Stop having babies with Irresponsible Black males who don't do a damn thing for the race!

The picture is accurate most Black impregnate women and leave the to raise babies alone while they live off BW or White women now! lmao

Black males are impotence race of men!

Yes, that is an accurate picture, but it seems it was purely coincidental. The one with the couple was the only one out of 5 products that had any couple on it. The others just showed women and babies.

Other couples were left off - Asian, IR, gay, lesbian, transsexual, transgender, etc.

Is it wrong that I find this kind of funny? I mean it's not funny that people were offended. It's funny as hell that the company would even think to put those clearly suggestive images on their packaging and no one would notice.

The one with the black woman is ORGANIC! I call racism here! They're trying to get black women to use healthy organic fabric, and get white people to use chemically filled fabric to poison their babies!

I knew it! It's a CONSPIRACY!

I read a little further and the company said that there are other boxes with single white females on the front as well. Not sure if true, but that's what they said in their response to all of this.

Didn't I have a run-in recently with someone in Canada? And you should consider a good laxative.

On 5 different package labels, they only added ONE couple of any kind. No matter who they put on that one choice, someone would have been offended. If it was a Black or dark Hispanic couple, Whites might have shied away, and someone in the Black community would have still found reason for offense. If it was a mixed couple, Whites would have been angry. An Asian couple might have been helpful.

Exactly. Why not just post couples on all of them? Or just singles on all of them?

Ah so you finally admit bw should be held accountable for their actions? That's a first even though you didn't do it on purpose.

Good point. Or they could have been trying too hard and failed.

What the company is trying to convey is single mammy n!@@er females & their unmanageable OOW daddyless filth lessen the overall marketability of their otherwise socially acceptable product by making affluent couples believe they are spending top dollar for a product that could possibly be affordable in any section 8 infested ghetto K-Mart on layaway terms or worse yet, at buy here pay here Dollar Stores.

come on people. This was not a stereotyping. Who says she's even single. It's just a company hiring many diverse women to be on their box! They just chose the pics that came out the best. it's too bad that the store where the photograph was taken didn't have a third box on the shelf with the single white women on it and none of this would have even happened. It's one person making a ridiculous conclusion based on two boxes sitting on a shelf and everyone jumping to conclusions! If the black woman would have had a man behind her and the white woman didn't - people would have yelled- Oh look they think the black woman needs a man for support but the white woman can be independent. If they were racist, do you think they would have bothered to hire black models? I'm sure this alleged stereotype didn't even occur to them. It's the people shouting racism who are the ones who are racist. They want people to be color blind and see the world as equals. If I would have seen these boxes I would have seen just that. A woman with a baby. I wouldn't have distinguished between black and white. Companies try to be culturally sensitive by hiring different colored models and they get blasted. Damned if you do, damned if you don't! Hopefully, all this attention will just help sales for an amazing product that I have long used and loved!

Solution, put space aliens on the boxes and just hope the Purples and Greens don't fight it out.

It can be argued that whites whine about everything even more and when that doesn't work they go on shooting sprees.

It could be argued that you are talking out of yourASZ.

Blacks commit 8 times the gun related shootings in America than whites.
