    That is Sweden’s culture minister Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth. The cake was commissioned as a part of a World Art Day celebration and was meant to highlight the terror of female genital mutilation.

    Lilijeroth had the disturbing honor of making the first incision and did so on the cake’s “clitoris.” As each guest cut a slice of the cake, the actor in blackface screeched and moaned with pain.

    Yeah, I`m going to go out on a limb and say extremely racist. I can`t imagine what they were thinking.

    It is supposed to be in protest of the mutilation of female`s genitalia that is prevalent in Africa and other parts of the world.

    Kind of too creepy and disturbing. I bet back in the day, there were cakes shaped like uncircumcised penis` back in the day...to protest the mutilation of mens genitalia...


    Or I could be wrong:P

    I submitted the whole story:
    Swedish Minister Of Culture before this was suggested, lazy-butt Mods!

    She`s the Minister of culture for Sweden, it`s celebrating "World Art Day" and they`re cutting the clitorus off that "african woman" cake. Seriously, go read MY linky, there`s video too!

    @Thdot: From the article I linked, that`s where:
    "Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth attended a tax funded party for the Stockholm cultural elite."
    And:
    "Why government funds should be used to pay for cakes such as the one served"

    She`s a lefty liberal, typical!

    @Thdot: Oh, you removed your question, lolz! That;s OK.

    The artist "accomplished" what?
    Promotion of racist stereotypes?
    Making fun of ritual clitorectamies?
    Normalization of torture?
    Promotion of hatred towards women?

    @Gerry1, you may be correct! This is the 3rd time now, recently.

    However I think it`s more like: mods don`t check older submissions before posting.
    If the title is different, they`d have a tough time knowing it`s the same thing, unless they actually looked...

    Good link @doorman! But it`s cut from a longer story:
    Longer Explaination Here

    The skin colour of the `artist` makes NO difference to this being racist or not. Period! It`s a feeble excuse, as bad as "having good intentions" is.

    Hooooooooly moley. The video is the worst. Yowza. Just goes to show that if you live in a largely homogeneous society, you can more easily objectify other races. (Yes, I know the artist here was black; and no, I have no idea what he was thinking.) Case in point: When I lived in Finland in the 1980s, they were selling licorice with logos of little African pygmies that I found a little shocking and that would have created an outcry over here. Because virtually no one in Finland had any relationship with blacks, such caricatures were simply regarded as charming, funny, and quaint. Another story: I once asked a Finnish woman I was dating what she would do if the driver of the taxi that pulled up to her place was black, and she immediately replied that she`d refuse to go outside. I kid you not.
