Now, I try not to get offended by anything – I really don’t. But racially insensitive stereotypes are troublesome. It’s 2014, and at least in America, we can do better. Scalping has a gruesome history, and so does St. Valentine’s Day (The Dark Origins Of Valentine’s Day) – so where is the line drawn?
I’m a Zazzle fan, and will remain so, and not because I have a store there. I support their business model, and I am so thankful they provide a platform and means to make gifts that I can’t manufacture otherwise. It’s genius. And I’m glad that racially insensitive items were removed from their marketplace once the material was brought to their attention. With millions of products, I’m sure it’s difficult to keep track of them all, but at the end of the day, I believe there was a “right thing to do”, and removing the old stereotyped images of yesteryear was a great idea.
I don’t think I ever announced this, but I’m now a “ZPro” Zazzle seller!!
