Negroe head Cookie Honor Obama
by Davey D
So I just saw this news report on Fox News 5 in new York where they have a French baker in Greenwhich Village where he made these messed up looking up cookies that he called 'Obama Negroe Head Cookies' . At least that what he told the news cameras. According to a number of customers he's been calling them Obama 'Niggahead' Cookies.
Initially I wanted to put this latest incident alongside the onslaught of incidents that have been surfacing since Barack Obama was sworn in as our 44th President. I mean we had the shooting spree in Boston where a white racist wanting to preserve the white race and protect his people from Obama was shooting non -whites.
We have the situation in Springfield where 3 white guys burned down a Black church and believe it or not will likely be let out of a jail.
Naturally I saw this cookie situation at the Lafayette bakery in the same vein, but then realized, I was probably over reacting. In recent days there's been a number of Facebook and blog debates about the use of the N word and where it came from and how we changed the meaning of things. I realized that perhaps this French guy was merely using the term in an endearing way.. Yep those Obama Negroe/Nigger head cookies was just his way of saying 'I love You'. In fact thats what dude said in the news reports.
Of course him being from France where the average person speaks multiple languages versus most of us here in the states who only know English, I 'm figured this bakery owner must've been digging deep and in honor of Obama. I figured he made these cookies and then wanted to bring a bit of ancient African culture and history into the mix by reminding us that Nigger comes from Niger or Nigeria or the River Niger. In otherwords he wasn't showing disrespect, he was giving us all a history lesson while honoring Obama.
So anyway I figured I share this story. Here's the link
Gather the kids around and let them know this is exactly who they are
