In the race to find things to be offended by and attack Christian businesses and individuals, one woman is claiming that Hobby Lobby is selling products that are insensitive to African-Americans. Just take a look:

“This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. 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 ‘décor,’” Facebook user Daniell Rider wrote.

According to Yahoo! News, she made the comment on Thursday after snapping a photo of a cotton flower in a Texas store. Her post went viral after thousands of people commented on it.

Users were quick to point out that slavery was abolished in America 150 years ago, and that cotton was also picked by many non-black people — it’s done by machines now. Young black conservative Twitter user Patty Politics, who calls herself a “female Ron Swanson,” posted Rider’s comment and got plenty of replies.

Others pointed out the absurdity of what seems almost like a call to boycott cotton:

What do you think about this? In other news that’s creating quite a stir, a New York Times reporter is claiming President Trump sent a dangerous message to America when he let an 11-year-old boy mow the White House lawn.
