Packaging Label Describes Sofa Color As "Nigger-brown" (http://consumerist.com/2007/04/packaging-label-describes-sofa-color-as-nigger-brown.html)

Doris Moore's seven year-old daughter did not understand a racial slur affixed to the packaging label of a newly delivered sofa. The sofa was purchased as part of a set that included a loveseat and chair. All three items bore the offensive label. The Toronto Star recounts the heart-wrenching discovery:

"She's very curious and she started reading the labels," Moore explained. "She said, `Mommy, what is nig ... ger brown?' I went over and just couldn't believe my eyes."
After explaining the slur's meaning to her daughter, Doris tried to pry a well-deserved explanation from Vanaik Furniture and Mattress, the store that sold the seating set. Despite three messages, the store refused to return her calls.

The store's Assistant Manager apologized when found by the Canadian press and promised to check his remaining stock for similar offenses, but placed the blame squarely with his supplier. The supplier promised to contact his Chinese manufacturer and "demand they remove all similar labels."


The demand is appreciated, but we want to know if the unnamed Chinese manufacturer shipped merchandise bearing offensive labels to other stores, or if the incident is limited to one Canadian family and their seven year-old daughter. CAREY GREENBERG-BERGER

Well, isn't it true that the Chinese think that blacks are truly sub-human in everyway?

do the chinese think that?

i didn't even know they had an opinion on other races, they pretty much have their hands full trying to exterminate people who look pretty much the same as them.

but i could believe they hate black people.

Hmm. Considering the fact that the Chinese are KNOWN to be excellent in math and science, they are KNOWN to have a rich culture and a fascinating history, food, etc, the Chinese probably believe that they're superior to blacks in every way.

To them, the only thing that we're good for is physical dominance (sex and sports). I don't think that they care too much for entertainment.

chinese look at ALL other races like theyre extra-terrestrial beings, ive been there, i know

its from centuries of isolation from the rest of the world (due to the geography of the country, the himalayas, and the pacific ocean, china has only relativly recently been connected to the rest of the globe)

She probably returned the sofa. Why keep it?

That the Chinese believe that they're superior to blacks in every way. Well, in the hood, they pretty much own the nail saloons, the ghetto clothing stores, and the beauty supply stores.

The beauty supply stores are interesting in a bad way. I don't understand it. Black WOMEN are the main consumers when it comes to hair products. The weaves, grease, oils, hot combs, perms, tall white t-shirts, and all of that other non-sense and bullshit is over-priced and down right disgusting! Are you kidding me?! And we STILL buy it!

Beauty supply stores should be black owned but there is a perfectly good explanation as to why that isn't the case.

If you haven't had the opportunity to have an experience in one of those stores I listed, it's truly disgusting and entertaining in a way. I was a kid back then and I didn't understand what was occurring but now I do.}:|
