Commentary: Take that Chia Obama off your Christmas list

I wasn’t so much worried about being accused of racism when I approached the register at the Pearl Street Rite Aid. Instead I was worried they wouldn’t sell me the “Chia Obama Special Edition.” They were leaving “Chia Lincoln,” “Chia Washington” and “Chia Statue of Liberty.” But they said they’d gotten orders from headquarters to remove not just “Determined” Chia Obama, but “Happy” Chia Obama as well. Both versions had, it seems, been recalled.
