I feel sad for anyone who thinks Hobby Lobby is racist for selling cotton decorations

MSN recently published this news story about a woman in Texas who said Hobby Lobby was racist because it sells cotton decorations.

For something such as this, the context matters a huge amount.

The article includes this picture:


In that context, I don’t see any problem.

They sell cotton balls at every supermarket and pharmacy.

They sell cotton clothing at every clothing store.

There needs to be a distinction between actual racism, and imaginary racism.

Anyone who criticizes Hobby Lobby for selling cotton has allowed herself to be brainwashed by social justice warriors who insist on seeing racism everywhere. I feel sad for her. I hope she find happier, more fulfilling things to focus her thoughts on.

Racism is real. Racism is a very real problem.

But this is not racism.
