  1. I heard about it this morning on the über rightwing Catholic radio show “Catholic Connections.” It’s not easy listening, but someone has to do a Catholic Watch — I do it so that you don’t have to. There are not many Black Catholics, racism is endemic and arrogant in that institution. The host was not amused by BBB’s move, labeling it mainstream media insanity.

  2. Just when you thought overtly racist products would be a thing of the past, then comes this piece of stupidity for sale. I can’t even think of a proper response to deal with this idiotic display of bigotry. At least I never bought anything from that shop before.
