Target’s ‘Annie’ Ads Stir Up Controversy

Fox News, December 30, 2014

Target is fighting back after being criticized for “Annie”-themed clothing ads showing a white model as Annie, as opposed to an African-American model, or Quvenzhané Wallis, the actress who plays the character in the holiday remake.

LaSean Rinique told Yahoo she launched a Change.org petition after her daughter, an “Annie” fan, noticed that a girl in the ads sporting Annie’s signature red dress and locket was white, unlike Wallis, who appears alongside Jamie Foxx in the movie remake.

But Target told FOX411 in a statement that at least one African-American model was featured in their “Annie” campaign.

“Girls from a variety of backgrounds were featured within the campaign, reflecting that anyone can embody the spirit and character of Annie,” a store rep stated and supplied a photo showing one of the models is African-American.

In her petition, Rinique demanded Target remove the ads and issue an apology to Wallis.

Rinique was quick to post a response to Target’s explanation on her petition page.

“I appreciate the time taken to respond; however, if they feel that ‘anyone’ could embody the spirit of Annie . . . where is our face?” she wrote. “We figured that Ms. Quvenzhane could not model for the line; however a reasonable facsimile of Ms. Wallis would have been nice!”

    We live in a world where people are offended at a White James Bond, so I am not surprised you have people who are offended at a White Annie.

        Actually, over the past week there has been talk that the next James Bond may be Black. Amy Pascal at Sony suggested this in an email to Scott Rudin, CEO of Sony pictures. Rush Limbaugh has criticized this idea.

        • SoulInvictus

          …jesus. They’re going to ruin even Bond for me.

          • Realist

            That should be the least of your worries.

          • I knew it was inevitable after making Moneypenny a negro, and of course, kicking the sexual tension between her and bond up a notch in the last film. I laughed it off when a friend told me she was going to be black, right up until the bile rose in my throat when I saw her on screen and knew it was real.

            They are literally wiping us from the history books. Its a crazed thought, but really, Moneypenny? Annie? I know theres more, and Bond will become black, or muslim, or a woman eventually. Theae are iconic characters, things you associate with “white” in your mind, and theyre changing that, wiping the slate clean for new generations.

            Its sick. And its far beyond the capability of these particular savages to plan and enact on their own …

But that’s okay, because, with an IQ of 70 and no past, what else are you gonna do but steal Whitey’s culture and Negrofuxate it. They’ve stolen everything else from us already….

      The arrogance is sickening. They want an apology to this Quevenookapooka creature,the homley black Annie,who is enjoying her one and only starring rle.

      • KAveries87

        …Quvenzhané Wallis made her “starring” debut in 2012’s Beasts of the Southern Wild. It did very well, and likely helped pave the way for her gaining the role of Annie. I think I’m in agreement with your argument (in that she’s just enjoying the part and doesn’t really care about the resulting marketing in retail etc.), but you should get your facts on her movie history straight.

  • OyVey00

        I can attest to the fact that these ghetto mommas have quite the little informal competition among other welfare ho’s in the projects, trying to see who can come up with the “most unique” name.

      I’m surprised the blacks haven’t started a petition against Coca-Cola yet. I overheard a couple of them, around 14 years old, behind me in the grocery checkout line last summer. They were sifting through the refrigerated display of Cokes, grumbling loudly, “Why dey don’ got no black names in heah?”

      Only a matter of time.

      • They’re already complaining about the lack of black names for hurricanes.

        Of course, if there ever was such a time that the news was that “Hurricane Shaniqua” was bearing down on south Florida or “Hurricane Jaquarious” was about to hit the Gulf Coast,” they’d be whining about the racism of hurricanes having black names.

        • Nancy

          You noticed that too, huh?

          I’m certain some Coke mid-level marketing executive tossed around the idea of putting a few black-sounding names on the cans, perhaps Demetrius or LaToya, but the idea was probably nixed because of the obvious temptation by the Jesse-and-Al Grievance Committee to complain that the names were somehow “degrading” and “mocking” them.

    That Annie was originally a White character who became black seems to be lost on the people complaining.

    Blacks are the ones who turned Annie black. Target is only setting the record straight.

        • gemjunior

          Amen to that. Blacks don’t even see the irony of appearing in films and plays that originated in the white world. Even fairy tales come from Old Europe and were carried here by Europeans. They can’t create their own history, so they lay claim to our history and are too stupid to remember where it came from. Their self-absorption is boundless. They intend to applaud any non-whites who displace us without a backward glance. We need to fight.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Come Februrary, White History Month, I intend to shut down and concentrate only on White history… the Founders, Maggie Thatcher, Lewis & Clark adventures, the Roman Empire, the architecture of the Vatican… all the good stuff. You should consider the same… HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

          • PvtCharlieSlate

            White History Month should start on April 4th.

          • White history month should start on January 1st and run through December 31st.

          • Samuel Hathaway

            IN other words, we need to stop taking our history for granted. Unfortunately, some letter writer to the local rag says we don’t “need” white history month since white history month is, “January, February, March, April. May……” yadda, yadda, yadda. IN other words, it’s not that important and doesn’t deserve special attention.

            However, I emphasized February as a way to mute out “black” history since day in and day out for February, it is rammed down our throats. I don’t have to worry about “black” history in May or September, for example, but using February is another example how blacks and the white media and academia de-emphasize the once national holidays we had for George Washingtons birthday and Abraham Lincoln. And St. valentines day, a famous saint who lived during some of the worst persecution of Christianity during Roman times in the 300s A.D.

            Of course, Western Mans crowning acheivements deserve year-round observance, but February is a good month to ramp up the noise on White accomplishment to counterbalance the lies and the theft of our history and to totally ignore anything “black.”

          • Excellent thoughts. Fortunately it’s the shortest month.

          • gemjunior

            I always speak for our history. If we are talking about days of the week, I start telling about Norse gods and how Tiw/Tyr is Tuesday, Odin/Wodin is Wednesday, Thor is Thursday, Freya is Friday, and Saturday, Sunday, Monday come from the planets Saturn, Sun and Moon. Then I start on the months of the year. Then I start on the light coming down from the ceiling. Then the heat coming out of the pipes, and the water from the sink, and the preservation of the food in the refrigerator. And on an on, until the world that takes white men for granted gets a swift kick in their ungrateful backsides.

          • PvtCharlieSlate

            I’ll give you an upvote for that. There’s a snarky, in-their-face reason for April 4th, though.

          • I’m guessing Dixie ? Mammy… Mammy…

            As I stated below yes it is out and it’s made about a million

      • Wayne

        Actually, it has made $52 million dollars at the box office over the past 3 weeks, That is pretty solid. Certainly, not a runaway hit, but a solid performance. It will probably do very well on DVD and overseas in Europe.

        • MannyR

          What film are you talkin about? It’s been out since Christmas and made a little over 1 million in the US. If it had made 52 million in 8 days it’d be massive news. Quit lying

      • Paleoconn

        Like I said if it grosses ten million, I will put on blackface and brillo for a week.

    • thomasdosborneii

      Agreed. Of course the traditional Annie character was always white (from the long- running comic in the funny papers, which ran from 1894-1968). The black one is an imposter. Anyway, who is supposed to be the model for Daddy Warbucks–Jay Z?

      Interestingly, according to Wikipedia, the comic was against organized labor, the New Deal, and Communism, not views that apply to the stereotypical black experience, today. Certainly one could make an effective and heart-warming movie about a black girl orphan, but it wouldn’t be “Annie”. So, as usual, they didn’t come to remake it, but to steal from it and ultimately destroy it.

      • Ron Cheaters

        Exactly, blacks figured we were done with it so they might as well steal it and make it their own.. once again.
        Can’t they come up with anything original?

        • dukem1

          Nope.

        • Valmont

          They could have called the kid Little Crack-Ho’ Annie.

      • dukem1

        Yep.

      • Spikeygrrl

        I was thinking Kanye for Daddy Warbucks. He wouldn’t have to act much since his real-life net worth is estimated at $700 million.

        • Charles Martel

          Yea annie is almost as old as that girl he got caught with peeing on him

      • TruthBeTold

        How many times have you heard blacks tell us how creative they are and how white people steal their culture?

        They claim that rock and roll was a black ‘art form’ because of the influence of gospel and blues. But where did gospel and blues come from? Did they spring up out of nothing or were they influenced by white hymns. The origins of the blues is highly speculative; ‘the African tradition of call and response’. Is this uniquely original to Africans?

        Some musicologists speculate that the blues derived in part from the Muslim call to prayer. If so, it’s nothing original but something influenced by and co-opted from another culture.

        There certainly aren’t any original African instruments in jazz. The saxophone, an instrument associated with jazz, was invented by a German.

        • me

          Indeed! ‘Rap “music”‘ was ‘created’ because they claim that Negroes couldn’t afford musical instruments in ‘da hood’. I claim that the average Negro ‘youth’ doesn’t have the intelligence to read sheet music, the discipline to practice a musical instrument, the attention span to master the instrument, nor the cognitive power to visualize future-oriented ‘payoff’ in learning said instrument.

          • Nancy

            I must chime in here.

            Back in the ’80s, when I was in high school band, I was a member of an all-white drum line: snares, quads, tenor 5-tops, pitched bass drums and cymbals of various sizes (yes, I was the only girl, and I was bad-a**). The snare line was the most difficult position to break into, because snare music requires very quick hands and the group needs to be tight. The same holds true for every decent majority-white marching band out there today.

            Now fast-forward to my old alma mater, which has turned 100% Negro. The last time I went over to visit them during a halftime show, about 10 years ago, my old band director (a black man) was still teaching there. He’s a very nice man, salt of the earth, and I credit him for having the sense to keep me out of trouble.

            Anyway, I noticed something right away about his new drum line: there were only a few snares (2 or 3 at most), a couple of bass drums and cymbals (but not a whole line of pitched equipment, as that kind of playing is much too difficult). Instead, most of them played what the band director called “toms”: essentially, they’re snare drums with the actual “snare” removed from the bottom drum head, and then beaten with smaller bass drum mallets (rather than drum sticks, which again are too intricate for the Negro kid who “jes’ wanna be beatin’ on ’em…”).

            So instead of sounding like a well-oiled percussion machine (a.k.a. the champion drum battery and front ensemble for which my daughter served as Captain this year, YEAH!), the kind that sends chills down your spine and is the official sound of High School and College Football Season for millions of people, the director at my old school now just has them beat out a whole lot of noisy, indistinct rhythms while they dance around and chant.

            As for any mallet percussion—marimbas, xylophones, chimes, bells—forget it. If they can’t read snare music, they certainly can’t read music requiring them to play a marimba with two mallets IN EACH HAND.

            I’ve seen capable black drummers in a few college marching bands, like Florida A&M, but there’s not many around on the high school level.

      Annie debuted as a long-running comic strip in the 1920s. Then through a radio show, Broadway musical, and major motion picture in 1982, Annie was a cute White redhead. Now because some unoriginal dolts wish to engage in a little cultural appropriation, we’re suddenly supposed to see Annie as black? An absurdity and an outrage. What black girl is named “Annie”, anyway?

    • Charles Martel

      They did the same thing with the green lantern movie thinking the black one was the first.

    • Valmont

      Seems to me they are “appropriating” White culture. Is this a microagression
      or a macroaggression?

  • Hubbub

    Why concentrate on only fictional characters when history offers us such rich subjects for Black portrayal. Take, for example, a Black Wild Bill Hickok, a Black Millard Fillmore, Abe Lincoln or Robert E. Lee. Such roles would open up the entertainment business to Blacks as never before. As a counter, we can have White actors doing their bit parts as Martin Luther Kings, Frederick Douglass, and others. On second thought, scratch the White actors, because only Blacks can accurately portray Blacks.

    • TruthBeTold

      Blacks pretty much have exhausted their canon of black heroes.

      Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, the Tuskegee Airmen.

      They really don’t have many which is why they keep expropriating ours.

      • thomasdosborneii

        Hollywood has been taking lesser-known white heroes and casting them as black.

        • MrGJG

          They already did it with the dolphin Winter who had a prosthetic tail made by white Irish Dr.Kevin Carroll. In the movie, the Irishman is played by the esteemed magic negro, Morgan Freeman.

          Their still waiting for their pure and sinless martyr they can rally around. Unfortunately for them, all they have are petty criminals.

          That’s why they have that phrase, ‘black lives matter* ‘ (‘ *even it they’re criminals’).

        Tuskegee Airmen? According to Roger McGrath they averaged 0.67 kills per pilot, whereas White squadrons scored at least 2 per pilot. Methinks the Tuskegee syphilis guinea pigs proved more useful.

        • TruthBeTold

          Yes, not only are they running out of heroes but they have to inflate the achievements of minor characters.

          • Nancy

            Hey Truth! If you haven’t yet, you should really check out Paul Kersey’s book “Whitey On The Moon”. He touches on the Tuskegee Airmen, but goes into great detail about the backstory of (the lack of) Negroes in NASA, their inability to pilot aircraft at the level of their white counterparts, and the government pressure (first from JFK, then from LBJ) forcing NASA to accept a mediocre black pilot for the Apollo program. AND he includes passages from Chuck Yeager’s biography…apparently he single-handedly stood up to the Washington muckety-mucks and refused to let the Negro graduate.

            We need more American Heroes like Yeager.

        How about a film on MLK which shows the plagiarism, the spouse abuse, the drunken orgies, and the cocaine? We can detail the connections with communists, jujus and other assorted riff-raff.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    This is precisely the kind of trouble we get into by changing white icons into black ones. Seeing the black “Annie” just didn’t seem right, but till now, I’ve said nothing. Now that Annie is shown as the white girl she is supposed to be at Target, THAT’S CONTROVERSIAL??!!

    How about a movie portraying MLK as a white? Now, don’t we see how stupidly silly this dumb Annie movie is? Quevenzane as Annie?? No little negress is fit to take the place of ANY white girl.

    • Robert Smith

      I think 2015 is the year we should finally realize MLK’s “dream” of judging blacks on their lack of character instead of on the color of their skin. Or, is MLK’s “dream” racis?

      • Samuel Hathaway

        MLKs dream was nothing but a big, FAT LIE. nothing more. Just lies. Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin and the nasty mulatto in chief in the white house are all icons in the black community precisely because of RACE. No content of character matters… none. If they were white with equal characters, no one would care that they even existed…but because they’re blaaaack……

  • 48224

    If a traditionally black super hero, wise man, or whatever, was turned white….blacks would blow a gasket. Rush Limbaugh is being called a racist for objecting to a black James Bond. If they actually create a black James Bond…..please boycott the movie. I will.

    • Black super hero or wise man ? Pure fantasy. More like criminal or derelict.

    • italian guy

      A black James Bond could be pretty useful to wake some people up, it’s a beloved character that has become a symbol of Britain, seeing him as a negro would give a serious shock to some people on a cultural level in my opinion, thus waking up on the racial level, they would see the blatant anti-European propaganda in it for sure… they would probably starting to see the racial replacement that is going on in the Western World.

    Little orphan Annie has been White since 1894. So, the politically-correct crowd decides to turn her black for one movie and this is the resulting thank you. More whining and screaming.

  • Samuel Hathaway

    I just heard sweet, little Shirley Temple on TV singing when she was about 7 years old… I fear that Shirley will be next on the hate list of the pro-black forces for a racial makeover.

    • DonReynolds

      They came pretty close in the movie…..”the Black Rose”. Shirley Temple wore a dark stain much of the movie to disguise herself as “Middle Eastern”. Great movie, by the way.

      • Xerxes22

        That wasn’t Shirley Temple. That was a cute French actress by the name of Cecile Aubry who looked a bit like Shirley Temple. Ironically, in real life Cecile married a Moroccan and retired from acting.

    So all Hollywood has to do is portray an historical character as black and any white image of that character is supposed to be banned.

Any white who complained about black Annie would instantly be labeled a racsist.

  • Tim_in_Indiana

    Here’s a list of other women in history who can (and should) be replaced by blacks in all future advertising, theater, movies and literature:

    Anne Frank

    Helen Keller

    Florence Nightingale

    Marie Curie

    Countess Ada Lovelace

    Amelia Earhart

    Joan Of Arc

    I’m sure I’ll think of a few more as time goes on.

    Note that it doesn’t matter if the famous figure was fictional or historical. After all, blacks can embody the “spirit” of these famous people just as well as anyone else, right?

    (By the way, blacks can NOT be used to portray negative female characters, such as Ma Barker. Also, whites can never, ever portray blacks, unless the black was a negative figure and the MSM is trying to cover up her race.)

    Got that? Those are the rules of the Brave New Amerika.

  • Xerxes22

    Target has a notorious record of running anti-White themes in their ads. Their favorite is posing young White teenage girls with Negros. They probably planned on posing White Annie with her Black boyfriend or a Black Daddy Warbucks type since Black males are so protective of young White females like in the Hollywood fantasy films.

    Hollywood is trying to float a black guy past America’s sensibility regarding the next James Bond – 007, by leaking some possible press releases. Maybe they’re watching the box office numbers for this movie, as well.

    • Ron Cheaters

      I read somewhere (less than a month ago) the new 007 will be white. But just the thought that it will inevitably be black in my lifetime, stirs up a lot of negatives.

      • Bill

        I read in the DailyMail UK that Bond may be played by a guy named Idris Elba, I think. I hope you’re correct, in your first sentence. Bond’s always been White, and always should be.

          Idris Elba has played a Norse God in both Thor movies, in what seems like a calculated slap in whitey’s face.

          • Anglokraut

            Loki is played by Tom Hiddleston–a gorgeous example of White genetics.
            Idris Elba isn’t a bad actor at all, but because of that, he’s shoe-horned into all kinds of roles that are inappropriate for a Negro–like Heimdall, the guardian of the Bifrost. I actually liked him in Pacific Rim.

    • Speedy Steve

      De name am Bom, J-Bomb.

    • I watched “Skyfall” and a black Miss Moneypenny was disappointing enough. If producers basketball the franchise, count me out as a viewer. I think an ageing Bond with Sean Connery taking up the mantle again would be neat – a bit like “Space Cowboys”. “Q” would be dead and/or unavailable, and Bond would have to make his own gadgets at home. If done properly, this would add an element of humor to the movie as they malfunctioned.

  • John

    Unlike Wallis, who is black, the original cartoon strip character, “Little Orphan Annie” is white, with no apologies necessary. These people get their shorts in a twist over the most stupid things. I suspect more Americans are suffering from “Negro Fatigue” than even most of us would guess.

  • dd121

    Do I get to be offended because they cast a negress in the role of Annie, a decidedly white character?

    • Douglas Quaid

      No, that’s raycis. Blacks can complain about white Annie though because everyone knows blacks can’t be raycis because of slavery and stuff.

  • Musashi5000

    It might not seem possible, but all this attention blacks gather unto themselves is making everyone sick of them that much quicker. I say let’s encourage it.

  • 4321realist

    Like assets blacks need to steal white characters and white accomplishments, hoping to pass them off as their own. And they don’t feel any shame for doing it.

    If they’re not trying to make Santa Claus black and Annie black and/or the Honeymooners black, they’re stealing white accomplishments by claiming the Egyptians were black or they’re stealing credit for white inventions and declaring them black creations, and every single one of any importance is a proven myth promoted by some lying black.

    And, of course, they’ll tell anybody who will listen that the reason they’re not given credit for any of it is because evil whites have been hiding behind every tree and rock, ready to spring forward to get credit for themselves while covering up all that black genius.

    This claim to the Annie character is a shameful display by a people who have created nothing nor have they accomplished anything of any importance or value and the only way they hope to lay claim to any of it is by theft and misrepresentation.

    Hmm. We are not supposed to complain when we see blacks in white roles. We’ve seen blacks taking white roles in the following: The Wild Wild West, a black Kingpin in Daredevil, a black as Nick Fury in The Avengers (in the comics, he was white), a black playing the character Red in Shawshank Redemption (the character was an Irishman in the book), even a black playing the role of Hiemdall in Thor (that’s Norse mythology for crying out loud). We can also look forward to a black Captain America and a black Torch in The Fantastic Four. Also worthy of note are the many productions where the entire cast is black: The Wiz, Cinderella, Steel Magnolias.

    All in all, i’d say we’ve all been pretty good sports about the whole thing. Love to see how they would react if we put a white man in the role of a Zulu king or as a god in African mythology.

    • Speedy Steve

    The problem is that the media and left wing bias tells blacks they are 90% of America when in reality whites are still 64% and they are only 12%. They will never be a majority. But they are treated like one.

    Same as a spoiled child. They are raised to believe they are so special and then they get into the real world and they realize they just aren’t that important.

  • It’s more sinister than that. They are trying to systematically erase our culture and history. And while blacks are the visible front of the movement, they aren’t the ones writing, producing, directing, and financing this venomous propaganda.

    Now, if they made the remake and called the new black “Annie” LaQuinannia or something to that effect it would be believable… Maybe ,,

  • It looks like the nigtard took the page down. I wonder whether it would be possible to set up a fake identity as a completely weirded-out, over-the-top black radical and convince “da community” of whacked-out “facts” like the free school breakfasts, lunches and dinners contain mind-altering drugs which make blacks commit crimes. Whites purposely sell expensive clothes that do not fit blacks, so we can laugh at them. Whites and Orientals straighten our own hair and bleach our skin in secret, just so we do not look like blacks. There is a great big pile of money somewhere, but only Juice – not “Jews”, but “Juice” know where it is. Racist policemen put grease, salt and high-fructose corn syrup in foods intended for blacks. Cats and dogs were originally all black, but whites have bleached them into weird colors. The neighborhood cat is spying on blacks for the FBI, and records conversations about the drugs it gets blacks to use; that’s why cats sneak around and watch folks. Everyone was a vegetarian until whites started eating meat and forced animals to eat meat as well. White people don’t actually die; they just move somewhere else and change their names after they poison blacks to make them look old. Blacks aren’t actually stupid, either; more of that poison whites keep feeding them causes them to be unable to speak coherently or pull up their trousers. CIA agents have sex with blacks and give them AIDS. The CIA also runs McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken as front operations.

    This is actually pretty easy.
