To my shock and horror, today I discovered in my local Rite Aid Sales advertisement that they are selling a product called Anti Monkey Butt Powder. I contacted Rite Aid's Corporate office and told them of the product that they had in their ad, the customer service representative at first thought that it was a joke until he checked the sales circular himself. This circular is for February 28-March 6, 2010 page 7.http://www.riteaid.com/stores/weekly_ad/two_page_view.jsf?region=east&ad_type=weeklypage=1
A product that also has Baby anti monkey butt powder, of course they could not forget the babies.
And for us ladies, we were also not left out, they have Lady Anti Monkey Butt
I checked the web site and discovered that they also sale apparel and have commercials on the web site. http://www.antimonkeybutt.com/index.php?src= How many products do we need that are going to discriminate against Black Americans? Why do we as Black Americans, continue to support these companies who discriminate against us, by giving our support by giving our funds to these companies?
Just as I have no longer given my support by my funds to the following companies that have these products on their shelves, nor will I continue to give support to Rite Aid carrying Anti Monkey Butt Powder. http://www.antimonkeybutt.com/index.php?src=
In 2010, is it necessary to continue to support companies that continue their racist practices against us as consumers? Is not our money green, and should it not have the same respect coming from black hands as other races hands?
