call me crazy, but seeing as how there is no way that any chia will grow in fabio-style flowing locks…this was either just a really bad idea, or a really racist one.
not to mention the obvious problem of owning a black man (or a representation of one) as a pet.
interestingly, when i presented the question to the allegedly-liberal bastian newsvine, the vast majority of respondents answered that it was not racist. the standard racist-asshole diversions were deployed. its funny, therefore its not racist. i want one/i dont think its racist, and i am not a racist, therefore its not racist. and my all-time favorite, the golden-oldie “i didnt even consider whether it was racist or not, and i dont feel like considering it now, therefore its not racist.”
shameful. just horribly, fucking shameful.
