    Chocolate is not racist.

    That's Hip Hop? Sounds more like 80's Brit New Wave.

    LOL!

    Hey the Blacks are getting all upset over this but I can see where Whites can instead.

    Lets see..."OMG...they make the last one seem like he can not sing unless he was black!"

    ;)

    No, seriously though, It is bad when a group of people scream 'racist' over every little thing that they can find. Maybe if they stop doing this then the race issue just might end. But they wont stop, they need something to complain about.

    The problem isn't really with the cupcakes, it's with the label.

    They are labeled as hip-hop cup cakes, and have little mini-black faces singing.

    BTW, that isn't hip-hop, so why even label it such? I have a feeling that if the label was never put on there, no one would have made this connection.

    But, creative commercial. I like it.

    There's always somebody who screams "racism" and keeps the hatred going.

    The cupcakes were cute. Hell, Al Jolson performed in black face and nobody had a problem with it. Different era, different mindset, but there was also a whole lot less bitterness and hatred.

    Life would be more fun if some people would just frelling lighten up. There are plenty of things to get really upset about - chocolate frosted cupcakes should not be one of them.
