What is wrong with this picture? At least some “white folks” know enough to at least be sensitive to stereotypes. The ad above was spotted by a concerned white lady who felt some kind of way about the food items featured next to this Black History Month ad.
A white lady tipster from Philadelphia sent in this circular from her local Super Fresh (located at 180 West Girard Avenue) today. Next to a beaming young boy and the text, “Black History Month: Proud to honor and celebrate African American history, culture and achievements,” Super Fresh had printed weekly deals for items such as canned collard greens (our tipster: “Not even fresh”), hot sauce, sodas, and Ramen noodles.
“Really can’t believe that they printed and distributed this to the public,” she added.
So do you think she’s right to be upset? Or is she overreacting???
