Home goods store Bed Bath & Beyond has pulled black jack-o’-lanterns from shelves after they were judged to be racially insensitive.

The move came after a law firm in Nyack, New York, removed its display of the decorative pumpkins following complaints from some in the town, according to News 12. The jack-o’-lanterns in question are completely black with a white grinning mouth and white eyes and nose.

“We understand that someone complained about them and so once we got word of that we immediately took them down,” said Mary Marzolla, a partner at Feerick Nugent MacCartney law offices.

Marzolla said the jack-o’-lanterns featured the names of each partner at the law firm and were never intended to be viewed in a racial light. “We represent people of all colors and faiths, and we would never do anything to exclude anyone from any community,” she said.

Local NAACP Director Wilbur Aldridge said the display showed “an extreme lack of sensitivity.” He said that “equally as offensive” was that the item was in a retail store for purchase. Bed Bath & Beyond spokeswoman Jessica Joyce said the company “immediately removed the item from sale.” She added: “This is a sensitive area and, though unintentional, we apologize for any offense caused."

I bet the original complaint came from a white woman with a liberal arts degree

While a good bit of black people do complain about racism, it is usually never for stupid shit like this. If you told a black man someone is drawing on a black pumpkin for Halloween most would go "nigga why should I care?" or "They have black pumpkins? That's cool!"

I hate self flagellating white people so goddamn much. Banning black pumpkins (which are a natural thing) to stop racism is like banning pet fish to stop overfishing. It literally does nothing to the problem at hand and just makes people's lives more difficult. Especially when people think black people are the ones crying about this and get the perception that black people are thin skinned about everything.

The crying whitey watches The Root and thinks the dumb nigs running that shit are the majority. I'd be betting most blacks have no idea what dumb garbage they're saying because they have better shit to do.

I think it's more malignant than that. It's a case of 'doth protest too much'.

I think that woketard honkies are in reality deep seated, dyed in the wool racists who loathe themselves for being unable to shed their primitive beliefs. They're also spoiled childish fucks who aren't used to doing hard work or taking responsibility.

Their lives have been dominated by the diffusal of responsibility for so long that their endless censorship quest is really just them asking others to shoulder the hate they feel for themselves on account of their own inability to not think the way they do. Higher ed and its concordant wokeness have only ground this maladaptive cycle deeper into their already overclocked minds.

While I mostly agree with the point that a lot of white liberals are just projecting I would also be the one to say "Never attribute to malice what can be adequately explained by stupidity"

Some of it I believe is that they have black friends and they think they are doing them a favor by acting this way. They for some reason take responsibility of the crimes of their ancestors and go "in order to atone I must make modern society as progressive as I can!" or even worse they have no black friends and assume this is actually what most black people want since they live in sheltered ass communities where they don't often meet that many different black people. So either racial ignorance could make you a racist or a woke SJW.

Either that or they truly are malicious and use identity politics to implement socialist polices like how some use environmentalism to sneak in socialist policies.

If you were put in a coma this minute and woke up in 2050, I'm persuaded there would only be two outcomes:

1.) You wake up in a concentration camp, because the Feel-O-Tron detected racist and transphobic thoughts, because you had a dream about a raccoon. You will be reeducated.

2.) You wake up and the first words you hear out of your doctor is, "Fucking finally. I thought this nigger-faggot was never going to wake up."
