People Are Calling For A Total Ban On Cotton Because — You Guessed It — Racism

By Jenna Green | 18 Sep 2017

A woman in Texas berated Hobby Lobby last week for selling cotton as a decorative home accessory.

Daniell Rider posted her complaint to the craft store’s Facebook page:

There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves. A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.

Daniell Rider, then received backlash for her sensitivity and responded to her critics:

All those who are offended by cotton being a decoration need to quit buying any product made of cotton!

Below is my response to this race-baiter  ~Angel

The following is a short list of products that are made with cotton or cotton/synthetic fabric blends:

  • T-Shirts
  • Sweatshirts, Sweatpants, and Hoodies (I suppose one could always go with fleece)
  • Bandanas (Antifa loons are gonna have to find something else to cover their cowardly faces with)
  • Denim (I am picturing protesters wearing polyester pants LOL)
  • Corduroy
  • Terrycloth (Towels, bath robes)
  • Sheets and Pillowcases (Most use cotton or cotton blend)
  • Canvas (Some is made using *gasp* cotton, some using linen)
  • Flannel (Some flannel is made using wool or synthetic fiber but a lot is made using cotton)
  • Underwear (For those of you who like the saggy pants look this includes boxer shorts)
  • Coffee filters
  • Fishing nets
  • Books
  • Tampons and Sanitary Pads (I suppose women can start using menstrual cups)
  • Bandaids and Gauze
  • Elastic bandages
  • Disposable diapers
  • Cloth diapers
  • Socks
  • Cotton seeds are delinted by a similar process to ginning. Some linter is used to make candle wicks, string, cotton balls, cotton batting, paper, and cellulose products such as rayon, plastics, photographic film, and cellophane.
  • Cottonseed oil is used in some margarines, salad dressings, cosmetics, soap, candles, water proofing agents
  • Yarn
  • Q-tips and Cotton Balls
  • Tires (Use of cotton in tires is limited – used mostly as a processing aid now)

Did you know that cotton remained a key crop in the Southern economy after emancipation and the end of the Civil War in 1865. Across the South, sharecropping evolved, in which landless black and white farmers worked land owned by others in return for a share of the profits. Some farmers rented the land and bore the production costs themselves.

And did you know that China and India are the two biggest cotton producers in the world? Also on the list: United States, Pakistan, Turkey, Australia, and Mexico.

And did you also know that slavery – yes slavery – is alive and well in the Middle East? Are you offended by THAT?

Leftwing Lunacy: Trees & national parks are racist — Fellowship of the Minds

The mind of the Left is a strange thing. The way it works is this: If a racial/ethnic group is “underrepresented” in some institution, place or activity, the reason must be overt or covert racism. Being “underrepresented” means a group is not found in the same number or percentage in a particular institution/place/activity as they […]

Obama: African-Americans Are Incapable of Acting as Citizens of the United States

From American Thinker
Michael Applebaum, MD   |   22 July 2013
 
It is with sadness that I witnessed the president of the United States tell the world that African-Americans are incapable of functioning as responsible citizens at the most basic level.

Our first White African American leader said:

You know, when Trayvon Martin was first shot I said that this could have been my son.  Another way of saying that is Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago.  And when you think about why, in the African American community at least, there’s a lot of pain around what happened here, I think it’s important to recognize that the African American community is looking at this issue through a set of experiences and a history that doesn’t go away.

There are very few African American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store.  That includes me.  There are very few African American men who haven’t had the experience of walking across the street and hearing the locks click on the doors of cars.  That happens to me – at least before I was a senator.  There are very few African Americans who haven’t had the experience of getting on an elevator and a woman clutching her purse nervously and holding her breath until she had a chance to get off.  That happens often.

And I don’t want to exaggerate this, but those sets of experiences inform how the African American community interprets what happened one night in Florida.  And it’s inescapable for people to bring those experiences to bear.  The African American community is also knowledgeable that there is a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws – everything from the death penalty to enforcement of our drug laws.  And that ends up having an impact in terms of how people interpret the case.
