Is it just me, or has the world actually gone insane? (PS - I'll take that melon)

 

"A Detroit firefighter lost his job before he even started after the gift he provided to his fellow firefighters was considered “racially insensitive.”
 
What happened?
The firefighter, Robert Pattison, was excited to start his new job. Typically, probationary firefighters at the Detroit fire company provide their new co-workers with a gift; a gesture of goodwill.
 
In this case, it was a watermelon bearing a pink bow.
 
Detroit’s WJBK-TV reported that while doughnuts are typical for a station-warming gift, probationary firefighters are permitted to gift anything they choose.
 
Why did he lose his job over a watermelon?
According to WJBK, some African-American firefighters were offended by Pattison’s choice in gift. Approximately 90 percent of the firefighters in the company are black, WJBK reported."

I'm surprised that Aunt Jemima isn't out of business by now, due to the snowflakes being offended.

   Apparently you have not seen the latest greatest image of "Aunt Gemima".   Barely resemble a typical black of african heritage.   Much more like  a very dark skinned white woman.    Many thanks to hussein the kenyan and his monkey mate nearly all these logos, product names are now suddenly racist, anti-American, hate symbles, prejuduce against black by the low life white American.

    A lot of these products have around for well over one hundred years and were respected ad programs with NO ONE entertaing the sick idea they were demeaning to blacks.
