The Misanthropologist: Cards More Offensive Than Hallmark’s Option For Single Black Mothers

Business is booming for Hallmark Mahogany, an imprint of Hallmark targeted solely at people with rich mahogany skin. I know because they released a Father’s Day card for black single mothers and I’ve been seeing this shit all over the internet. It gives me hope that Hallmark can make a killing off of perpetuating stereotypes because I’ve been trying to support my nitrous habit for a while (shit is prohibitively expensive) and so started a card company. If a big fish like Hallmark can trade in offensive, insensitive and ill-timed greeting cards, then maybe there’s hope in this world for a little guy like me.

    I actually liked that single mothers father’s day card and I’m black. It’s nice that noticed that most of us (70%) don’t have fathers.
