Hand me a late pass, then smack me with it. It appears there's a new "ice cream confection" in Germany that goes by the name "Nogger Black." It wouldn't be so bad if the font and marketing of the treat was stylized in a notably hiphoppy fashion. You can read more about this and other sweets like "Negerkuss" over at It seems some folk...actually, quite a few folk are saying this is being blown out of proportion. Call me hyper-sensitive, but this reeks of callous disregard for cultural iconotypes. It wasn't well-researched and just shows yet another example of...yes, racism.

With a little background, I found that the GB Glace company that makes the ice cream is owned by a part of Anglo-Dutch group Unilever. Well Unilever also owns Breyers, my favorite ice cream. Does that mean no more vanilla bean in the little black container?
