Lesson in Cake Racism: Be Careful of Black Names

Lesson in Cake Racism: Be Careful of Black Names

Yet another silly cry of racism.

And all because blacks have been taught to look at racism in everything. In this latest case, racism was spotted in a cake.

As America Now reports,

A Cleveland, Ohio, grandmother was shocked to discover a racial slur written on her granddaughter’s birthday cake.

Ronell Tucker said she ordered two cakes over the phone from a local supermarket, and one was delivered as it was ordered. The second cake, however, misspelled the name of her 6-year-old granddaughter. Instead of LaMiya, it read “LaNiga.”

“I was very upset and angry and it felt like racism to me cause how do you get one cake wrong and one cake right. You had to notice the mistake,” the girl’s mother, Ashley Hayes, said.

“That was not right at all and it really upset a lot of people at her party and her,” Tucker added.

You can see from the note that it would be easy to confuse LaMiya with LaNiga. So if there was anything wrong here, it’s the writing by the person who took the order.

But don’t expect LaMiya’s grandmother to not draw the racist conclusion, and blame the faux pas on the name given to her grand-daughter.

According to the article, LaMiya’s mother went racial:

LaMiya’s mother said she noticed the slur as she was taking pictures at the party.

“All the other kids knew the words and they were like ooh they put that on her cake,” she said.

“We were all in shock.”

Shock! That somebody couldn’t read a piece of paper and made a mistake in one’s name. If I got a nickel for every time I have been called “Keith” instead of “Kevin”, I could pay my next month’s mortgage.

So what’s the remedy in this “shocking” experience? According to the article, 

The family quickly called the store to inform them of the mistake, but things allegedly got worse.

“It’s no mistake with a ‘M’ and a ‘N’ and a ‘G’ and a ‘Y.’  It’s no mistaking. It really upset me,” Hayes said.

The manager of Dave’s Super Market, Burt Saltzman, said the spelling was an honest mistake.

“If you look at this ‘M’ could have been an ‘N’ and the ‘Y’ could have been a ‘N.’  The girl had a bunch of cakes that day,” he said.

Saltzman apologized to the family, admitting that the manager who initially handled the complaint “could have handled it in a better manner.” LaMiya’s family said they’re satisfied with how the situation turned out.

Well, the store manager did the right thing. But there is still a lesson here.

I just don’t know what it is. Unless telling black Leftist to stop jumping to racist conclusions, and understand that the world doesn’t think “racism”.
