Should Target apologize for the Annie collection?

I wrote about the faux outrage regarding the Target Annie collection. A petition has been launched on Change.org demanding that Target apologize to the young black actress, Quvenzhane Wallis. Why? This is looking for a reason to be outraged. Target is selling clothing. People we have got to learn that everything is not an act of racism. Let’s leave the manufactured outrage in 2014. Our country is not perfect and there are plenty of real issues that are worthy of our anger and our outrage, but this is not one of them. I read an article today in which it said a Target rep is going to reach out to Wallis. This is a mistake. By reaching out to her they are tacitly claiming guilt and there is not guilt here.
