The People vs. Hoops and Yoyo

The singing Hallmark card characters- who I love but I guess everyone else hates- are under fire from the NAACP. A graduation card mocking black holes in the solar system is being misinterpreted as "black whores":

I'm usually pretty vigilant when it comes to spotting surreptitious racism, but come on- the card clearly says "black holes." This is open-and-shut as is possibly imaginable.
