"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.
