A Black-owned bakery, Fat Cupcake, baked up a batch of cupcakes to honor our President, an American who happens to be black; they titled the cupcakes “Mr President.” Fat Cupcake described their confection on their menu as an
Oreo (™) Cookie baked inside white cake, cookies n’ cream buttercream.
It didn’t take long for the Left to start manufacturing a racist beef where none exists, thereby displaying their own racism. Via Yelp, for instance:
Very troubling. They were serving a cupcake called the “Mr President” that had an Oreo cookie inside. When I tried to point out the racism implied, they claimed that “our current president loves Oreos.”
Never mind that President Barack Obama (D) is well-known for loving Oreos; there’s no “claim” there.
This isn’t just an isolated anecdote, either.
Since opening in Southeast Portland, [Fat Cupcake owner Anjelica] Hayes said she’s had to field questions about whether her cupcakes are racist.
I’m surprised someone isn’t whining about the sexist nature of the establishment’s name.
