I always find it quite interesting that White people never make caricatures of themselves. This is disgusting

Is that supposed to make it "OK"?

The artist got exactly what he wanted....more notoriety.

How can it be called racist when the person who made the cake is of the same race some claim it's offending? Boy some are just so quick to pull the race card.

I don't find the art instillation not OK to begin with. I love it.

Jeeze, relax.

It seems like a clear majority on here don't find this racist at all.

A bit odd and creepy, but that cake looks delicious.... I want some!

Anyway, I think people in this case are just looking for a reason to be offended.

And who says white people don't make caricatures of themselves?

What a stupid thing to freak out about.

So let me get this straight, if the racist act is done by someone of that same race I am not allowed to be offended?

Why is this an issue in Sweden? They aren't importing Africans there too are they?

Interesting isn't that? And then to add the whole genital mutilation thing in as well. Absolutely disgusting.
