So, there is a boycott against Barnes and Noble over this picture. This is a true picture and not a fake one. Snopes.com confirmed it. My question is, are we over reacting?
If this image is indeed the result of a bad joke by a customer, should Barnes and noble pay the price? Granted, I do question the validity of that argument (I worked in retail for years and we all know our front display is the second most important part of our store….next to the cash register). If the manager on duty is negligent when it comes down to the representation of the store, does this person still have a job?
We also have to go back to what sparked this argument. How many Americans feel that racial “jokes” are just that, jokes? I mean I am sure Walt Disney and Warner brothers believed their humor was acceptable.
The funny thing about humor is that people have to find it funny to be classified as humor. Since it is objective, it is easily defended.
What are your thoughts on this boycott?
