To me, it's stuff like this that throws some organizations' credibility into jeopardy... In the news story, don't see anyone under 50 voicing complaints.. to me, this is someone who needs a hearing aid tripping over nothing..

Probably, because the "younger generation" is so used to a dumber down society, which includes the butchering/lazy use of the English language, that they would not recognizes a insult unless a cross was actually burning( I mean "blazin' ", yo) on their lawn...and even then.

And I'm under 50 by a few years.

I think it is fair to accuse Hallmark of stupidity. But stupid doesnít equal evil.

Hypestyle got it right; fighting stupidity hurts the NAACPís credibility. When they pick these kinds of fights, they will be perceived to have less standing when a real fight comes along.
