The shocking images above are making the rounds on the net right now.. The images display a stunning example of Anti-Black Racism in Sweden. On my initial reaction I was a bit naive and thought to myself that people have to be reading this wrong and that this could not be what I think it is. But it is what it is.
The cake is of Sara Baartman laid nude in black face with a bloody inside.. I was thinking people could not possibly be this racist? Apparently they are in Sweden, they feed Sara cake and everything.. Now many of you are unfamiliar with who Sara Bartman is. I’ll explain in a bit.
This cake was presented at the Modern Museum in celebration of World Art Day and 75th anniversary of the KRO. The event schedule read:
“3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 15: “Freedom of Artistic Expression and Dialogue with Society”
A conversation in English about the fight against censorship and artistic freedom. “
So they labled this satrical display as artistical freedom?? WTF. I can take a good joke but this is completely not funny at all. I find this cake utterly repulsive and had I walked in YES, I would have slapped the dog sh@t out of the person with the knife in hand feeding Sara cake of her own body.. The crowd stands there laughing..
So appalled.. If that’s not bad enough one of the themes of the party was also female genital mutilation.. The Sara blackface cake was cut starting with her clitoris. This cake of a black woman who was humiliated and whose body was turned into a sideshow circus while alive was being cut into by a white audience. And the person pictured cutting into the cake with a huge smile is their Culture Minister - Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth who is supposed to be responsible for culture policy in the Sweden government.
And this was all in celebration of WORLD ART DAY.. Ain’t that about a Bish!
