Gee, this is shocking. I thought Europe was the Land of Unicorn Enlightenment and America was the evil racist nation? That's what the Democrats always say.

Oh well.

I don't care what color the cake was, slicing a cake that looks like a human being is creepy!

Is that a real person's head she's feeding a piece of cake? That's even creepier!

Edit: Eeeww! I just watched the video...wth! That's just nasty. "Cake? No thanks, just this glass of water...actually, make it a fifth of Jack Daniels so I can erase this image from my memory."

Exactly. Forget the race angle...that's meaningless on the face of it.

My only problem is how creepy that cake is. I'm sure it tasted quite deelishus!! But damn, it'd be hard to get past that face!!

Can someone explain to me- how does a bunch of smiling white people eating a creepy-looking, blackface CAKE help stop female genital mutilation in Africa?

Europeans.

So maybe we should be asking you that question instead given your European connection.
Strange post assumes a lot considering you don't know anything about me.

Ah, European performance art.

I'm surprised the guy didn't ride in on an elk wearing Bjorks swan dress and then take a crap on the cake to protest the plight of the north american migratory spotted snail....to resounding applause.

The art performance seems to have resulted in a lot of people thinking and talking about female genital mutilation in Africa. No?

The attention it's gotten says to me it was remarkably successful.

Protesting against female genital mutilitation is a good idea but the method is a bit over the top.


I agree. And this has nothing to to with Swedish Culture as somebody mentioned.

Sadly, I didn't see any ice cream served to go with the cake.

Very artisitic idea but africa isn't going to change its culture over a cake.
