Are you offended by cracker barrel


......

........
(A company that has the word "cracker" in its name is offensive to a white person. The word "cracker" has been used by the afro american population to describe a white person in an offensive way. I think white people should bury the "c" word for good. So the first thing that should be done is change the name of cracker barrel to "baked wafer barrel". I could stomach that. Lets make DEC 29, 2013 BURY THE "C" WORD DAY in the barrel day by urging the crackers at the barrel to change their name to BAKED WAFER BARREL! :)) Story Reports

Cracker Barrel puts 'Duck Dynasty' products back on shelves after outcry


Tribune wire report

The Cracker Barrel restaurant chain, two days after removing “Duck Dynasty”-related products from its shelves, said Sunday it was putting them back – and apologized to fans of the reality series.

Cracker Barrel began yanking Duck Dynasty-related items from its stores on Friday in the wake of patriarch Phil Robertson’s inflammatory comments to GQ magazine about gays and blacks, saying it didn’t want to offend fans of the A&E hit reality series.

The move had just opposite effect, the company said on its Facebook page Sunday.

“You flat out told us we were wrong. We listened. Today, we are putting all our Duck Dynasty products back in our stores. And, we apologize for offending you.”

The controversy has been raging since the comments by Robertson, who has been suspended by A&E, came to light. On one side are Christian conservatives outraged at Robertson’s suspension for expressing his belief that homosexuality is a sin. On the other are people who say religion is no excuse for bigotry.

The Lebanon, Tenn.-based restaurant company initially removed certain products made by Duck Commander, the business run by the Robertson family of the A&E show, “which we were concerned might offend some of our guests.”
