I learned of a conversation with a big company executive. They give out beach towels and I had no idea of the racial implications. Since people of color are not as inclined to sun bath the beach towel, as he said was the "White People" flag. It is one of the things they like to give away to customers to show the industry is a white inclusive industry.

I just went and burned all my beach towels!

Coppertone makes tanning products, that doesn't mean they are racist.

We give away beach towels if you want to wine and dine with us.

We give out fried chicken from the convienient store if you work in the sweat shop.

So your in favor of racism??? If they give out pointy hoods does that mean the pointy hoods themselves are not racist?

Pointy hoods are not racist, they're called "Dunce Caps" and I think you should be wearing one.
But of course if you did, that would be an insult to all the stupid people on the planet.

So a company which has stated their market principle is to symbolically welcome white people is ok?

I think you are the one who wears pointy white hats!

Think what you like, but until you can post a link to your statement, you're just pulling words out of your a**

What company?
Who said it?
What's their position?
Where's the link?

This is just some silly piece of BS you probably picked up from another topix thread.

Enjoy your weekend.

is it just negra THUG camouflage? I know it's camouflage, they don't want to be identified. They want to carry out their Violent Criminal THUG tactics without penalty. I would grab or better yet shoot every
THUG-like negra I came across. That'll stop them from using the hoodie.

Using your logic, McDonald's should also be chastised. Not only do they market almost solely to black people, they also have a black-centric website called black365.com .

But then again, they're just going after a market they know is going to buy their food regardless of how processed and nutritionally lacking it is. Through their marketing effrots, their customer base has become largely black and lower-class. They don't want to make money by charging a lot for their food from those who can afford it. They recognized that they could profit much more by keeping the costs low and appealing to the demographic that populates the lower-middle class.

Don't take my word for it, here's someone else's thoughts -- http://economicsofmcdonalds.wordpress.com/201...

For more information about McDonald's strategies, look at their franchising strategy -- https://sites.google.com/site/mcdonaldsfranch... .
