Germany’s Racist Candy Bitter to the Taste

Germany’s Racist Candy Bitter to the Taste

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.

Here’s one lady’s comments based on her informed experiences.

I don’t know if I agree with them all, (having never had the luxury of traveling across Europe much less France) so to a large extent must take her word for being informed and logical.

Have any readers had similar experiences?
