A Faux News NYC affiliate reports that a Greenwich Village baker was making what he called “Drunken Negro” face cookies, to mark the election of our first black president.
To some customers, he allegedly referred to them as “Drunken Nigger Face” cookies, a claim he denies. In any case, it’s racist.
Shop owner Ted Kefalinos,of Lafayette French Pastry suggested, “Would you like some drunken negro heads to go with your coffee? They’re in honor of our new president. He’s following in the same path of Abraham Lincoln; he will get his,” hinting that Obama would be assissinated. Full report here.
This isn’t from “The Onion,” it’s for real and this redneck ass clown is clueless about the “blacklash”. One thing for sure, it got him and his shop on the evening news, which if you believe that any publicity is good publicity, brought attention to him and his pastry shop.
I wonder if he’s considered expanding his line? How `bout “Welfare Mom Cadillac” cakes, “Katrina crullers” or “Baby Daddy” muffins (which he could advertise but would never have to actually make, since they would never be around)?
While he later apologized, claiming it was just a misunderstood event, What do you think?
I wonder if he’s had any negative personal experiences with blacks or if he was just brought up in an environment where bigotry was taken for granted?
File this one under “one step forward, three steps back.” What a dick.
