Customer ire has pushed Target to remove its ´ Baby Daddy´ greeting cards from stores ahead of Father´s Day. Frustration with the cards first started approximately 2 weeks ago when Facebook user Takeisha Saunders posted a photo of the card. She said: ´You CANNOT be serious Target!!!! Really!!!?!!!!? This was the only Father’s Day card that featured a black couple!!!!!!´ (Snip) The sand-colored card features what appears to be a couple of color and the phrase ´baby daddy´ in maroon lettering. The inside of the card, as noted by a user on Saunders´ post, does include the message: ´You´re a wonderful husband and

The beef must be that the cultural appropriators at Target denigrated the respected ghetto term "baby daddy" by adding the highly offensive word "husband" into the mix.

I hear it all the time on TV: "My baby´s daddy" and "My baby´s mama."

It´s a cultural thing - black culture.

Truth hurts.

"Baby Daddy" is a term that is used exclusively for black men.

That is not a racist thing to say, because it´s true. The women may be different races, but the men who impregnated them, and who they refer to as "Baby Daddies", are always black.

It´s an Ebonics sort of term.

I swear there are people that must have a hobby of going out and looking for things to be offended by!!!!!

If they just hadn´t mention "husband" it would have been more accurate. Apparently, the card designer is white and lives in the bubble.

Now it seems the live in´s are all ´fiancees"

Milwaukee — A Wisconsin woman accused of trying to plan terrorist attacks on social media leads a lonely life and sought companionship online, but she never posed a real threat, her attorney told a judge Friday. But federal magistrate Judge Nancy Joseph said the allegations against 45-year-old Waheba Issa Dais were concerning enough that she must be held without bond pending her trial. Prosecutors allege the mother of seven tried to recruit people to carry out attacks for the Islamic State, and provided them with information on how to make explosives and poisons.

Barcelona, Spain — Spain´s maritime rescue service says it has saved 933 people and recovered four bodies from dozens of migrant boats attempting the perilous crossing of the Mediterranean Sea over the past two days. The service said Saturday that it pulled the migrants from a total of 68 different smuggling boats that its rescue craft intercepted throughout Friday and Saturday morning after they departed from African shores. The spike in arrivals comes as Spain prepares to receive another 630 migrants after Italy and Malta refused to let the aid boat Aquarius land in their ports last Saturday. The Aquarius and two

A security monitor who might have been able to thwart the Parkland massacre sexually harassed two female students the year before, including one who died in the shooting, family members claimed. Andrew Medina received a three-day suspension for harassing Meadow Pollack and another teen last year at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida — even though a disciplinary panel recommended he be fired, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Thursday.

President Trump seemed to undercut House GOP leaders’ new immigration bill Friday, suggesting in an interview that he “certainly wouldn’t sign” it if it reached his desk. Mr. Trump, interviewed on the “Fox & Friends” morning program, was asked about the two bills GOP leaders will put up for votes next week. One is an enforcement-focused bill by Rep. Bob Goodlatte, while the other is a compromise overseen by the party leaders, which combines an amnesty for some illegal immigrants with major changes to enforcement and pathways for legal immigration. “I’m looking at both of them.

Poppy cultivation in Afghanistan hit a record high last year, a US government watchdog has said, describing American-funded counternarcotics efforts in the war-torn country as a failure. Since the American-led invasion in late 2001, the US has spent about $8.6bn on counternarcotics efforts in Afghanistan, yet the country remains the world’s largest producer of opium. According to a new study by the office of the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (Sigar), opium cultivation reached about 328,000 hectares (1,265 square miles) in 2017 – a 63% jump from the year before and the greatest amount tallied

A terrorist planned to bomb a swingers’ club in France – but authorities were able to thwart his attack, they said Thursday. Cops found a handmade explosive device inside the unnamed man’s home last month and he admitted he wanted to use it at a sex club in the Loiret region north of Paris, a source close to the investigation told AFP. The 38-year-old, who was described as a radicalized convert to Islam, was indicted on May 17 on terrorism charges. This is the fifth terror plot prevented in France this year. On Saturday, two men, aged 21 and 22, were arrested east of Paris and are suspected of planning an attack in the name of ISIS

A 29-year-old Tunisian, identified only as Sief Allah H, was arrested on Wednesday before a search took place in his apartment in Cologne. Investigators say he started procuring material online including seeds needed for the creation of ricin in mid-May. They said he succeeded in creating the toxin this month and investigators found it in the search of his flat. They are still investigating how the suspect planned to use the toxin, but said he was working on an attack in Germany. German news weekly Der Spiegel reported that Sief Allah H. was thought to

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´
