American Greetings and Target are apologizing for selling “Baby Daddy” cards for Father’s Day that featured a black couple on the front.
Customers called the card racially insensitive.
The inside of the card read, "You're a wonderful husband and father — and I'm so grateful to have you as my partner, my friend, and my baby daddy! Happy Father's Day."
I personally think the card would have been fine if there was not a picture of a black couple on it. If the card just said Baby Daddy without calling out any race at all I would be totally ok with it. I know plenty of people who use Baby Daddy or Baby Mama.
Way to single out a race, not a good look!!
So this is what @Target thinks about black families, that we have baby daddy’s and not father, SMH, this is why we have to start pulling our resources because we have to separate, come in to UNITY , and help ourselves and own our own stores pic.twitter.com/oUi852Uy1b— Taliah (@taliahpasha) June 12, 2018
