First, Let me start by saying Happy Father's Day to all the amazing Father's. I hope your day was spectacular and filled with love.
Now let's get into the fuckery that Hallmark-Mahogany brand pulled. I'm sure this isn't the first year this has been done. I think people are just taking notice to the bull sh*t.
Let me give you a bit of information on this particular Hallmark brand. Back in the 1987, Hallmark introduced Mahogany cards to and for African- Americans. Hallmark have been creating cards for African-Americans since the 1960's(so they claim) for various holidays: Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Kwanzaa, Graduation and Christmas.
Now let's get into the fuckery; Father's Day has become a holiday for moms. Some genius over at Hallmark decided- It would be a great idea to create cards for Single Moms for Father's Day. (Disrespectful, if you ask me)
My issue is the message they are sending is: African-American children are FATHERLESS. Which is far from true. Now don't get me wrong do we have some ain't sh*t men claiming to be Father's? Yes, we do. But we also have some sh*tty a*s moms too. Do you see single dad's running around here talking about where my card at? We don't want to talk about that tho-
After seeing these cards-I decided to dig a bit deeper cause immediately I'm pulling the race card. Yes, I said it. This is some racist crap. What I've found is:
Hallmark-Mahogany brand cards are way cheaper than the regular Hallmark cards.
Why is that? Explain that Mr. Hallmark folks
Now don't get me wrong, I appreciate being able to walk into a store and find a card that matches myself. I appreciate that Hallmark donates 10% of all proceeds to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We Thank You for that.
I'm saying all this to say allow these men to have their day. As you see from the definition above it says nothing about WOMEN. Personally, a woman can't raise a boy to be a man. A woman can't provide their daughter with the love that only a father can give. When you decide to swap fluids with a man unprotected -you knew you were risking pro-creating. Furthermore-God don't bless no mess. If you not doing right by your CHILDREN..He's not blessing you..PERIOD!
I'm going to need Hallmark to re-think/fix this crap with mom's receiving Fathers Day cards. Hell, if pops not around- I'm sure your son or daughter has a positive MAN in his/her life who deserves the card but it's not you, MOM!
As you can see below-Some women feel they deserve both days. This must be the genius that works at Hallmark! FOH with yo bitter a*s!
Go to the SPA and send the bill to HALLMARK with their racist ass!
