I lived in Europe long enough to know their sensibilities. If they thought this would actually offend someone, they wouldn't do it. They just have a different take on race and culture than we do. And they're not nearly as PC as we are.
Its not "racist" because its a bunch of multiculturalists involved. If anyone else not of "the left" had done this........

Again, you know.

When I first saw the thread I thought it said, "Native American Woman" and thought "I will go on the thread and tell them as a person that has Native American ancestors that it does not bother me at all." I think people are just too sensitive sometimes and do not have a sense of humor. Let's just all live and let live. I hadn't read all that other stuff yet. Whatever!

Default Racist Spectacle in Sweden as Cultural Minister Cuts Into Cake Shaped Like a Native African Woman

What else do you do to a cake?

Gross...the cake has teeth (not the painted on teeth but the ons in the mouth)and looks like someone severed its torso from the rest of its body. This is tacky, classless and looks like something out of a horror movie.

Edit: Is that a real human head or part of the cake that she's feeding? Still gross either way!

the artsy fartsy crowd got carried away.

i don't think it's racist.

everything that's offensive that people do to africans/blacks isn't done because of racism you know.

sometimes people are just stupid.

It's a great idea for a Halloween party cake though.

Good for you for making the cake, BTW!

Well, at least it draws attention to the problem
Unfortunately genital mutilation is on the rise in Europe as more Africans live here...

In Europe political correctness is not as rampant as in the US. You can still see white singers painting themselves black and wearing Afro wigs on TV, happened just a few days ago...
