    Walmart apologizes for Juneteenth Icecream

    Not sure what is wrong with capitalizing on Juneteenth like Corporate America does for everything else. Can anyone figure out what the offense is this time around?

    "Juneteenth holiday marks a celebration of freedom and independence," a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement. "However, we received feedback that a few items caused concern for some of our customers and we sincerely apologize. We are reviewing our assortment and will remove items as appropriate."
    It is getting to a point where nothing makes any sense in the perceived offense area anymore.

I may stop by from time to time to discuss philosophy on a general level related to Libertarian schools of thought and application in the real world.

    This thread is highly offensive. I've reported it to the mods.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Blacks aren't getting the profits from the ice cream is my assumption why they're mad.
    If Wal-mart had assured blacks would receive x percent of proceeds from sales, we wouldn't have heard a thing other than mass promotions for this ice cream to increase sales and thus give blacks another check.

    Did I assume too much in this post? Nope, I don't think I did.
    Blacks and BLM have made it abundantly clear: they want white money. They want it for nothing. They don't want to work for it, they want to take it just like whites did to their ancestors hundreds of years ago.

    Clearly they've never opened a history book before, but whatever.
    Welcome to the R3VOLUTION!

    Would have been a good chance to promote diversity. They could've advertised choc-vanilla swirl and called it Half-Breed Hottie.

    Could've combined chocolate with strawberry and said LICK THIS!

    I think it's because it's the "Great Value!" brand ice cream. They want Ben n' Jerrys or some high end brand.

    Others on Twitter are encouraging shoppers to buy Black-owned Creamalicious Ice Cream from Target.

    I mean really, so what? Am I suppose to be upset because Mattress warehouse has a mattress sale every Memorial Day Weekend?

    We're being governed ruled by a geriatric Alzheimer patient/puppet whose strings are being pulled by an elitist oligarchy who believe they can manage the world... imagine the utter maniacal, sociopathic hubris!
