    In a statement e-mailed to USA TODAY Network, Giant said, "Unfortunately, an incorrect stock photo was used in the ad, and we apologize for this oversight. We wish all Howard University students a successful semester."

    Victoria Walker, a junior broadcast major at Howard, said she was surprised to see a white student in the ad.

    How dare a supermarket use a white person in their ad. Whitey's not welcome at Howard U.

    Imagine a mostly white school, say maybe a Yale, and the white kids throwing a tantrum that there was a black chick in the ad

    Imagine the outrage if they used a picture of fried chicken instead of pizza. The most surprising thing about the article is that 87% of the Howard students are black - I don't think I have ever heard of a graduate of Howard who wasn't black.

    Didn't mArisa tomei play the token white chick on A Different World?

    What's the big friggin' deal?

    Attention black people: worry about black on black violence, not supermarket circulars.
