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.

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.
