Cotton

Editor: An African-American woman attacked Hobby Lobby for selling raw cotton on a stalk. She posted remarks and a picture on Facebook claiming that this reminded her of slavery.

I guess they didn’t have anything better to do. I just feel this time could have been better used assisting the
