Black Man Cookies Being Sold In Europe

 

“Black Man” Cookies Are Big in Romania

In today’s news that we couldn’t make up if we tried…”Black Man” cookies are reportedly a hit in Europe.

“Black Man” chocolate cookies, which are shaped like a man with braids, a wide nose, big lips and a captain save ‘em Superman cape are being sold in Romania.

According to The Root:

A report that Romania is selling “Black Man” chocolate-flavored cookies.

Based on a photo posted in Copyranter, the cookie appears to have coarse hair, closed eyes, a wide nose and big lips. It is sporting a Superman cape with a “B” inscribed on a plate in the front.

This looks like the latest in a long line of consumer products designed to profit from racial stereotypes.

Remember Obama Waffles, which were sold by a conservative political forum? And who could forget the Obama Chia Pet?

The cookies are also being sold in Turkey and Albania.

“Black Man” cookies? Wow.
