Let them eat cake!
« on: April 18, 2012, 05:12:02 PM »

One of my peers at school sent me an email today with this news story and video.  Talk about extreme (not the event itself, but the reaction that some people are having towards the matter).  Misunderstood creativity? Artistic and political FAIL? 

Swedish minister in 'racist cake' controversy

Quote

Sweden's culture minister is facing calls to step down after she was photographed cutting a cake shaped in the form of a naked black woman.

The incident involving Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth happened at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm.

According to Radio Sweden, the museum said the cake was supposed to highlight the issue of female circumcision.

But the Association for African Swedes said it was a crude racist caricature and called for Ms Liljeroth to resign.

Kitimbwa Sabuni, a spokesperson for the group, told Swedish news agency TT: "To say that you did this for a good cause only makes the mockery of people who are victims of racism and of circumcision worse."

More...


Here's a short video of the event.  Warning for those of you with delicate sensitivities: it is slightly grotesque.  Oh, and notice the racist and ignorant comments made by some viewers (apparently scientific racism is still en vogue).

Ps./ Before anyone comments without knowledge of the facts, the artist (Makode Linde) is a black Swede.

What was that party planner thinking. 
And the culture minister went along with this?  WTF?

Are me missing some essential information here?

So wrong.  And bizarre.
