    Apparently, it's so bad someone has to lose their job.

    No idea. I guess it might help to know what the below are and (presumably) what stereotype they portray.

    These ornaments, which have since been taken down, included packets of Takis and FunYuns chips, Newport cigarettes, a Popeye's Chicken cup and some police tape.
    Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

    I still do not get it. Are they 100% exclusively used by one demographic?

    I don't get this at all. If such decorations are deemed to be racist why are they on sale?

    I heard that the officer(s) responsible for this heinous crime have not yet lost their jobs, because they have to go through a proper disciplinary process, but the mayor still thinks it will end in them being sacked, so obviously the process is superfluous.
