It took less than a year between juneteenth being a federal holiday and Walmart making garbage merchandise.

Trademarked to a white ownership company Belchem. How much more 'mericun can you get?

The Juneteenth ice cream features a swirled red velvet and cheesecake flavor.

I wonder how they arrived at the flavor choice.  I also wonder how many meetings were had on the subject and which dumbass employee proposed watermelon, either in jest or in seriousness.

I'm fully expecting a line of Juneteenth T-Shirts to be offered to compliment your choice of ice cream.

Yes, subby, I'm sure the original slaves would appreciate you saying their situation was basically the same as modern retail workers'. You nailed it.
 
2022-05-23 5:40:50 PM  
Work to death? A little hyperbolic don't you think? I mean, have you ever actually seen Walmart employees working?

Wow...

The only people shiatting themselves over this should be those with a lactose intolerance.

This shiat is photoshopped. Has to be.

To be fair, some slaves didn't have it that bad. Like, if they got sick, they would actually get medical care.

Except, you know, the fact that they were slaves. Property. The reason they got good medical care is that the owner takes good care of his property.


Unless of course, you think being a slave isn't that bad, as long as you get free medical care. Which would have to be free, since, being a slave, you didn't get paid.

In 2022, a global corporation had months worth of meetings, focus groups, and taste tests around this. Bids were taken internally, externally, or both around the package design. Budgets were approved, demos created and met around, discussed, and finally approved. There were hours and hours of meetings and calls, some of them catered, depending on the attendees. Somebody spent sleepless nights and weekends worrying about getting this thing "over the finish line", and somebody with at least an "SVP" or "EVP" signed off on the final approval. Literally hundreds of people all across the country-maybe even the globe-participated.

And nobody put their hand up to say, "Uhmmmmmmmm......"

Agree with Subby. I have always boycotted Walmart. I also boycott Amazon.


Yes, they both care. They send me letters pleading with me not to make them go out of business.

Walmart is too smart for this. They had to know there would be a backlash, and all the MAGA idiots would "stick it to them libs" by running out and buying every carton and eating every bite on Facebook Live

There could not have been one american bore person of color in any of those  meetings....... But fark here is your chance racially insensitive holiday ice cream flavors.  Choco Tacos for Cinco de Mayo with caramel crumble and lime.

Thankfully it wasn't watermelon flavored .

Why, in God's name, and in this day and age, would you write that sentence in a public forum? What the hell are you thinking?

Meh, every social movement is monetized and exploited. I wouldn't be surprised if #MeToo flavoured ice cream was next to this on the shelves.

I had such horrible ideas of where they would go with the flavoring was thinking it will probably be tasteless and mindless like it was dark chocolate that slowly as you got to the bottom of the container turned vanilla representing finally making it to be free like the white man.

Holy crap, can WalMart really trademark the name of a federal holiday? That's almost as disturbing as the blatant racism and ignorance.

Why doesn't Walmart donate a percentage of the sales of that particular flavor of ice cream to a charity like the United Negro College Fund or something?

That way they can make this idea a lot less tasteless.

Will it taste of shame, sweat and overexposure to the press with a hint of lying and apologizing?

I'll give it a lick. Literally.

Hey, you can make corporations make political statements, you can't actually make them give a shiat about it though. It's just about advancing their brands. Figured this would just kind of go without saying.
