Reality Check: Funny, Not Racist

CVS decides to pull its Obama Chia pet for undisclosed reasons. Out of concern that it might be because the item could be considered racist, let me weigh in as the Senior Black Correspondent for Ragged Thots (apologies to The Daily Show's Larry Wilmore): There's nothing remotely racist about the Obama Chia Pet. On the contrary, it is a masterstroke of American commercial inspiration.

Lighten up, people.

(On the other hand, this item Costco yanked from its shelves falls a bit closer into the "WTF were they thinking?" column. )
