WTF! Swedish Minister cuts racist cake (PICS plus VIDEO)
Sweden's minister of culture Lena Adelsohn Lijeroth has landed herself smack dab in hot water after photo's of her cutting into a cake showing a naked black woman. According to Swedish newspaper Fria Tider, the minister kicked off the event by "slicing a piece of a cake depicting a stereotyped African woman." As party-goers cut into the cake-woman's body, a human head screamed in pain.
Watch the disturbing video below:
The cake "was reportedly meant to highlight the issue of female circumcision," according to local newspaper.
But boy did they get this wrong.
Not only do I find it horrifying that the minister laughs it up while cutting the cake, I find physical characteristics of the cake upsetting as well. WTF where they thinking? Thoughts?
