Hey Hey its Coles Racist Biscuits

Recommended Posts

I couldn't believe it when I read this...are we living in a country where people just want to be fucking outraged or something?!

 

What a whiny cunt.

We've got a guy up here who does the same thing, got McDonalds to remove the 'short black' coffee from their list amongst other pathetic attempts to get attention for himself.

Didn't we debate this in terms of homosexual and racial slurs?

 

If a word originates from humble meaning but is late given a derogatory connotation, does that word lose it's unbiased objectivity and become taboo to use in society?

that's just ghey

The question becomes one of why references to colour are inherently bad, if divorced from their sub-meanings of inferiority.

Typical honky.

comedian is doing his routine.

 

Comedian: Yo, check this out: black guys drive a car like this.

Do, do, ch. Do-be-do, do-be-do-be-do.

 

Yeah, but white guys, see, they drive a car like this.

This world is going to hell. Everyone has to complain about everything.

 

FALCONS ARE OFFENSIVE TO BIRDS, BIRDS DON'T PUT OUT THAT MUCH POLLUTION.

 

SAUSAGES ARE OFFENSIVE TO FEMINISTS, THEY SHOULDN'T HAVE TO EAT MEAT THAT LOOKS LIKE A PHALLUS.

 

PRINGLES JUST SOUNDS OFFENSIVE, AND SHOULD BE REMOVED.

 

TEDDY BEARS REMIND ME OF EATING THEODORE ROOSEVELT, EXCEPT FOR WHEN THEY ARE COVERED IN CHOCOLATE IN WHICH IT IS THEN OFFENSIVE TO BLACKS.

"Gentrification! They gon' drive out the black element to make the galaxy quote, unquote, safe for white folks. And Jedi's the most insulting installment! Because Vader's beautiful black visage is sullied when he pulls off his mask to reveal a feeble, crusty, old white man! They tryin' to tell us that deep inside we all wants to be white!"

Well isn't that true?

Don't forget those 'fag' lollies from back in the day. We renamed them, but the basic message that homosexuals are tasty to eat remains!

Coon, on the other hand, is named after the Cooning process. A process for making cheese named after it's inventor Edward Coon. Nice, easy, direct link completely unrelated to the racial slur.

 

 

That's the STORY anyway. There seems to be little evidence regarding this, apart from the fact that the story has been around for a while now.... Considering the societal behaviours when 'Coon' first came out, i put more credibility in the story regarding the black wax theory.

Wait, why do pringles sound offensive?

Is it the "once you pop you can't stop" logo? Cause that might be offensive to nymphomaniacs.

Don't know why i find that funny...i think it's just the image of an anti pringles campaign being run by self confessed nymphos.

Maybe they were named that because creole can refer to a language that is a mixture of two or more other languages? The biscuit is a mix of chocolate and cream...

 

Anyway, it is all rather silly. People are too easily offended.

yeah, they should rename them half-castes so they can offend the local market more directly

Odd choice of name for a biscuit, though. I always thought Creole meant the descendants of the French in their old American territories.

Wouldn't that be more Cajun, than Creole?

They are mostly interchangable in the their usage, from what I've seen.

They are similar... But different.

 

 

Just try having a conversation with someone about it who is creole :)

I think German gets mixed in with Creole, among the African, French, Spanish, and American.

 

IDK, I can tell them apart historically, but in a modern sense I'd be a lot less sure.

Creole

 

/kreeol/

 

noun 1 a person of mixed European and black descent.

 

I would have thought if it was reasonably widely regarded as an offensive word Oxford would say something about it.

 

 

Oh, I see, we don't care if the complaint is valid or not.

 

Rabble rabble rabble!

Even if the name is referencing people of mixed ethnicity, so what? The biscuit is a bit brown and a bit white. How is naming it after someone who's a bit brown and a bit white offensive? What about all those dark roast coffee ads with black people in them?

 

It's just a skin colour - recognising that someone's pigment levels are similar to something else isn't negative or racist, it's just observation.

 

 

Also, why isn't this racist against the white part of Creoles as well as the black?

Never heard of that as a racist term.

 

Shoulda called them Uncle Tom's.

I've known Mauritians who looked down on the Creole-speaking population, but that's about it. Not what I'd call racism, though. More snobbery. Or a sort of cultural cringe.

the fucked up thing about Arnots gollywogs, now scallywags..... is that the image of the biscuit is EXACTLY THE SAME!

 

A gollywog biscut is a bloody gollywog biscut.

why?

 

Because its still a fucking gollywog ffs.

It's a fair comment.

 

If the biscuit was done in a creole cooking style (urgh) then of course it wouldn't matter. But it's chocolate biscuit with a cream filling, and the only reasonable interpretation of why the name would be chosen is the racial one.

It's only racist if the accompanying coffee is white with a Jamaican plantation's worth of sugar.

 

P.S. Gollywog biscuits taste great, but Kingstons are still the best... what was that about Jamaican sugar I said?
