It’s only racist if you think about it

November 17, 2010 by copywronged

Riddle me this …

Given the seemingly infinite number of symbols that exist in the world, why would you choose one that, for most people, holds a negative connotation?

“YOU WILL EAT ZEE PEACHES, UND LIKE IT!”

The Reter Fruit Company of Medford, OR, uses an Iron Cross as its logo. I know, I know – the cross existed long before WWII, and that it’s not inherently racist. But when you’re using a symbol whose Wikipedia page features the line, “See Also: Orders, decorations, and medals of Nazi Germany,” you might want to consider re-branding.

Though on the plus side, you could get Schultz as your spokesperson!

Das ist gut.
