Not cool. I hate Obama being President, but this is over the line and beyond childness.

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

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....

Wait a minute - this guy's from New York. I thought all those racist guys live in the Still-Fighting-The-Civil-War Confederate South, while everyone in the North was all for equality and anti-racist.

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.

I like how blacks can say anything, but once a white people say the "N word" the whole world yells at them

I see nothing wrong with the cookie. I do see something wrong with that "music".

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?

Go right ahead and say the "N word" in these forums.
In fact, say the "N word" on your job.

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.

If the cookies and the bread both sold out, I think the people from New York that shop at his bakery are taking it for what it is/was. A Joke!!!

People need to lighten up and not take everything so seriously!!!!

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$$.

You reckon those pricks who called their kid 'Hitler' in NJ took a trip across the Hudson to go and buy some?

To FlyDeltaJets87, there are racists everywhere as individuals, it's when such things were institutional and even worse used to be sanctioned from above is where maybe certain parts of the US got the reputation you are alluding to.
