A German candy manufacturer has pulled its racist candy licorice off store shelves after numerous complaints that the candy pieces, some of which depict African imagery and others that depict “Sambo” type of caricatures were and are offensive to anyone with a functioning cerebral cortex (and of course, this is my opinion, but the product was pulled). I’m sure the company in question had no ill will, but the product did garner sufficient attention.
