Disturbing.

Except that it’s a swedish cake.

Black ≠ african

WTF do Swedish elites know about the situation on the ground in Africa?

I write this as a member of the American elite who lives aboard a sailboat in the Bahamas, and has an African girlfriend. Ask her what it is like in Nigeria, or Ghana, the lands of her father and mother. Get back to me when you have informed and meaningful insight into the situations there.

WTF do you know about Swedish elites?

WTF do they know of England, who only England know? (Kipling).

The great thing about this blog is that its eclecticism will eventually allow anyone to display authoritative knowledge of their niche topic, no matter how recondite.

Having said that, I’ve yet to see a post about age heaping on Roman tombstones between 95BC and 130AD. When will I get my opportunity to post angrily about this?

A true expert would be able to work age heaping into any topic. Since you’ve managed to work it into a story about Swedish cakes, I give you a B+ and regard you
as the fourth best poster to MR.

Well, quite obviously and pretty indisputably some of them are racist morons.

Eric H April 22, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Would highlighting that ignorance not have been the point of the … um, installation? It seems to have sparked a good deal of controversy.

Oh, and this.

McBain April 22, 2012 at 10:26 pm

WTF do you know aside from apparently rigging and bestiality?

Honorary April 23, 2012 at 2:11 am

What do you know of apart from fascism, stupidity, obesity and mass murder?

Probably the most brilliant hack of the year, although it is only may time.

Vive le multiculturalisme!

If americans had does this, it would have resulted in accusations of racism by the commenters on this Blog.

Done! not Does!

Bah, my english grammar always seems to die when I most need it.

Why can’t this just be art? Why does it have to be political?

horny-handed gent that ran amuck in kent April 23, 2012 at 2:13 am

It is clearly intended to make a political point.

Even as art it is extremely bad art.

Why can’t swastikas be enjoyed as neat-looking graphical symbols?

They are in India.

Government funded art… and you are surprised that its political?

The useless old Swedes who should be eaten by Africans.

Jim April 24, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Don’t they have enough to deal with without inflicting bad food on them?
