The Massachusetts-based Dorchester Historical Society issued an apology Tuesday after receiving backlash for a holiday-themed graphic some said sent a racially insensitive message.

Earlier, the historical group tweeted a card that read, “We’re dreaming of a white Dorchester,” a message the group says was a riff on Bing Crosby’s famous song “White Christmas,” the Boston Herald reports.

In response, someone tweeted that “the message of a white Christmas implies others are left out.”

The historical society then deleted its graphic and issued an apology.

Political commentator Michael Graham, the political editor for NH Journal, pointed out the stupidity of taking offense at the graphic.
