    UPDATE: "Drunken Negro Face" Cookies On Sale at Greenwich Village Bakery - Gothamist: New York City News, Food, Arts & Events


    At at a time when any decent baker should have been selling racially harmonious black and white cookies by the truckload, one Greenwich Village bakery popular with celebrities and shows like Sex and the City has outraged neighbors by selling a "Drunken Negro Face" cookie in, um, "honor" of President Obama. [Video below.] A shocked customer tells My Fox NY that Ted Kefalinos, proprietor of Lafayette French Pastry, asked her, "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."

    Later, her friend stopped by the bakery and said Kefalinos corrected her about the name of the cookies—they're actually drunken "N-word" cookies. She says the backwards baker then repeated the dark suggestion that, like Lincoln, President Obama "will get what's coming to him." Go Secret Service, go!



    I'm all for freedom of speech but this guy is a complete moron. What was he thinking?

    What was he thinking? Um... we have freedom of speech?

    In Iraq under Saddam there were pics of Saddam everywhere - EVERYWHERE. People put them up to assure others that they were loyal. No one dared to breathe a word against him, if you did you were killed.

    Thank goodness it isn't like that here... right?

    A good example of how something can be tasty and tasteless at the same time.

    No one said it was illegal.

    I bet the guy lost a shit load of business though.

    If you look the question was "what was he thinking"?

    He apologized saying he now "feels terribly about it." Isn't that sweet?

    Wow. I mean Im not fond of obama whatsoever, but thats too far (Although he has the right to sell them and make any remark, stated in the first amendment of freedom of speech). And by the way, This has no relation with the cartoon at all, none; its not even similar.
