Lafayette French Pastry, a New York bakery in Greenwich Village known for its tasty cookies and treats, is coming under fire for a tasteless and racist batch of chocolate treats called “Drunken Negro Head Cookies.” The cookies are dark brown with exaggerated facial features and cherry toppings. Ted Kefalinos, who first introduced the cookies on Martin Luther king Day last week, says he made the cookies to honor Obama. He also admits that he is not an Obama fan but thinks the cookies are a winner for him since every one in his first batch was sold. When customers asked Kefalinos why he made the cookies, he reportedly mentioned Obama and said the new President will “get his” just like Abraham Lincoln who inspires him. “I’m sorry that people were offended by the cookie,” says Kefalinos, who insists his product is not racist.
Again, not racist? You expect people to really believe this? Unbelievable.
