...Walgreens will soon be changing their corporate name to Wal-white-privilege...

(...and, yes...  this IS the most racially insensitive thing I have seen in a while...)

It’s also the oldest thing you’ve seen in a while.

So are you so you are okay with it because it is from 2008 or because I haven't seen it before?

You obviously must think it is okay because you never came close to saying anything about how dog awful it is, but instead try to tweak my nose about not having seen something from 2008?  How white privileged of you to think that, KB.

Because it’s from 2008. I hadn’t seen it before either but I decided to look it up to make sure someone wasn’t putting one over on us. We don’t know that the guys at Walgreens are still that tone deaf, at least not from this example. Actually, we don’t know that most of the guys at Walgreens were ever that tone deaf because it’s a photo of one display and could have easily been the decision of a single department manager at a single location. If that was a national decision, that’s obliviousness/insensitivity on a much greater level. 

It’s definitely awful enough to be funny, but I hesitate to scream at someone for a mistake they made in a retail display a decade ago.

 "I hesitate to scream at someone for a mistake they made..."
