Racist Ice cream?

Group Says 'Nogger' Ice-Cream Ad Racist


STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A Swedish rights group cried foul
over advertisements for a liquorice ice-cream, saying the
posters for "Nogger Black" were racist.
Not only could the name of the ice-cream bar made by GB
Glace cause offence, but the posters, with graffiti-style text,
lampooned black culture, the Center Against Racism said.
"The GB Glace company may not be racist, but the ads they
use give new life to racist stereotypes," the campaigning group
said in a statement.
GB Glace, a part of Anglo-Dutch group Unilever, said it did
not believe the ice-cream, or its advertising, was racist.
However, it was considering withdrawing another advertising
campaign due in May.
"Even if the word 'black' in the logo is inspired by
graffiti, we don't see anything wrong with that, nor about
alluding to black culture or hip-hop," GB Glace spokeswoman
Petronella Warg said.
"We certainly had no intention that the name, 'Nogger',
would be associated with any negative word."
A chocolate version of the Nogger ice cream, with a nougat
center, has been on sale in Sweden for decades.

I'd like someone to please explain to me why liquorice ice cream called nogger could possibly be perceived as being racist! Am I missing something!?

It's called Nogger because it has fucking nougat in it, and they've used that term for years. Thank you, PC fucktards. :nonono:

I dont think thats racist at all.  If it was 'black nigger ice cream' then start complaining, ya know, I mean come on?

we must prohibit any word close to anything offensive!  it may cut our dictionaries in half, but it is for the best!

nagger and nogger are bad!  and nugger of course as well, and negger lets not forget negger... oh and nygger....

if it isnt the actual word, then forget it, I mean DUH :rolleyes:

They'd misconstrue the shit out of it for their own ends.

... It's as much as a possibility as is that the makers of said icecream were making racist ice-cream. (It was a joke if you didn't realize it)  :tongue:

My (ex, whorebag) girlfriend and I were in some ice creamery in Pittsburgh with a rude black lady as our ice-cream scooping technician. I was pretty stoned and I asked for some "white" ice cream. We thought it was funny. Aunty Jemima didn't laugh, but for 4$/hr I'm sure her "putting up with white peopels shit" quota was pretty low.
