So Wrong

Now I don't want to go all Confederate Yankee or anything, but given Walmart's history of shall we say less-than-progressive policies can anyone explain how listing biographies of Martin Luther King, Jack Johnson and Dorothy Dandridge under the "similar products" category with Planet of the Apes looks anything but awful?

Update: GSD from the comments: "As for Wal-Mart, what do you get when you pay $3.20 to some white-supremacist parolee from Texas to do your copywriting."

Update II: Walmart has now changed it, but we were crafty and called Crooks & Liars to make sure they took a screen shot before we posted.
