It's pretty stupid to do something like this, but it worked--it's great publicity for him.

I hope he goes bankrupt  Smile

Too funny, this guy is an idiot. What is the drunk thing and Obama? Don't get that.

Normally I would say that the publicity would help but this may hurt him big time.

He's sold out, according to the report.

Given he had "dead geese bread" after last week's plane ditching, there could be a whole new line of tasteful wheat based products by the time you get there. Keep watching the news....

This is what I call poor taste. I sure hope the place gets boycotted and set out to dry.

Why? Do you support someone that is obviously a racist. I mean, if you just want to see it for yourself, take a look. I would just not suggest supporting this by buying it.

Why should their be "outrage"?
The link you provided shows two prominent conservative media-types praising Obama and condemning trashy, low-class rappers and made it a point to separate President Obama from this sort of filth.

Are you including Condolezza Rice, Clarence Thomas and Colin Powell with that same broad brush that you paint all Blacks?

Quoting PAHS200 (Reply 12):

Go right ahead and say the "N word" in these forums.
In fact, say the "N word" on your job.
Say the "N word" all you want as it's protected by the 1st. Amendment.
Please chime in with the results of your actions.

Look at that poor excuse for a politician named Rudy Giuliani that exploited this very issue for his own gain. What party does he belong too?
No need for you to be so defensive.

Rudy may not be perfect but he has done a hell of a job as a politician. I have to say when I think poor excuse for a politician people like Pelosi and Reid come to mind. Now we are in the ballpark.

??? That cookie is a bit out of line. At best you can say it is poor taste but that guy screwed up big time.

Well I have a feeling you won't have to wait too long.

I mean if you listen to him, he sounds like an incerdibly ignorant boob who has an axe to grind against "liberals" and probably black people. I don't think we're talking irony here.

He has an absolute free speech right to do this, just like his customers (probably 99% of them) have a right to take their business elsewhere.

wheres the outrage from the black community? where is Al Sharpen? sure 2 blacks can beat up a white guy and Al Sharpen comes to free them, but when its a black using the "N word" and the "F word" every second he say nothing. if he is trying to help the backs, why doesn't he come out and say, You know, this isn't right and you shouldn't do that. where is every other black saying rappers, writes, speakers you shouldn't do this.

most kids look up to these rappers. shouldn't that black, white, brown, yellow community's come out in one voice and say, You don't do these things.

I just want to know why the black community doesn't come out. If this was a white saying this about a Obama you would bet that the blacks would raise hell.

This isn't about race, this is about doing the right thing.

So far, I've seen plenty of outrage over this baker's actions from the entire community. That would include Blacks.

Im glad you said it . I was thinking it . Yet he forgets that his Black president Mr Obama has been very kind to Greece . He is probably one of these people that forgot his routes and where he comes from. People should boycott him and teach him a lesson.

As a Greek-American, I'm ashamed to be associated in any way or shape or form with this dimwit. Perhaps he ought to speak with the Greeks who came here in the first half of the previous decade who were oftened referred to as "dirty Greeks" to find out what discrimation is all about. Jacka$$.
