A Detroit dollar store on Tuesday was forced to remove a figurines depicting a White cherub with armor and a sword crushing the head of a Black horned angel. The imagery is apparently evocative of Archangel Michael defeating Satan, according to WXYZ.

After a flood of complaints, the figurines were removed from the shelves at Super Dollar Center in Detroit’s Lincoln Park community, but not until television cameras arrived.

The manager explained that they meant to remove the figurines last week, but, well, got too busy with the holidays.

“It has a racial undertone and why does the baby have to be black,” Reniqa G. told WXYZ. “If they wanted to portray a message they could have been the same color–so to me it’s almost like Blacks are inferior.”

Watch who gets our coins, especially during the holidays.
