I doubt such a flap would have been made over this greeting card (or anything else about Whitney Houston's life and demise) were she White. Yes, she was a great performer and her death represents a tragedy. Still, if she were White, how many people, institutions or groups would have made such a production about her. n fact, were I a member of her family or a close friiend/co-entertainer, I would be downright insulted that she was getting so much attention now! Did she get such attention while alive, with one or two notable exceptions? This "Whitney Flap" is yet another example of the evils of both racism and subtle reverse-racism! Shame!
