Obviously not a brain cell working in the whole room:

"Sweden's culture minister today faced furious calls to resign after she was pictured cutting a 'racist' black cake designed like a native African woman.The Swedish minister cut pieces from the black cake, which had blood-red sponge and was designed to highlight the issue of female genital mutilation."

Wierd and creepy, but their culture. Why do we care? It's not like they are killing people in the name of religion or anything REALLY stupid.

Other than the color how is an "african" woman any different from a "nordic" woman.

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

Some people just like to say "I'm offended" as often as possible.

Probably something to do with taking lightly a serious issue.

It's funny how the cultural minister is accused of be culturally insensitive.

Not sure what this has to do with "their culture." I could see this instillation in any modern art museum here in America as well.
