Video: NYC baker surprised to find "drunken Negro head" cookies not a hit

A follow-up to the clip I posted in Headlines this weekend, re-embedded here as background. Which famously regressive Gotham enclave does this guy operate in, that he thought Sambo pastry might be a hot seller? Why, er … Greenwich Village. Which makes this the business equivalent of a Darwin Award nominee.

Note his (alleged) comparison of Obama to Lincoln, rendering the faux innocence of the second clip that much more exquisitely unctuous. Reminds me of little Adolf Campbell’s father insisting he just liked the name. Exit question per the reporter’s outro: People are “incredibly hurt” by this stupidity? Really? “Incredibly”?
