Obama Waffles Leave Racist Taste in Mouth

9/14/2008 6:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

In a so called "political satire," makers of a waffle mix showcasing Barack Obama have many calling it a racial stereotype that goes waaay too far.

The offensive material includes such gems as Obama wearing an Arab-like headdress on the top flap of the box, while the back of the box depicts Barack in stereotypical Mexican dress. The recipe includes a tip: "While waiting for these zesty treats to invade your home, why not learn a foreign language?"

The men who created the controversial Obama Waffles sold their lack of genius for $10 a box during the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C. this week. Organizers have since cut off sales, saying they had not realized the boxes displayed "offensive material."

The Obama campaign declined to comment.

TMZ needs to get a proof reader.

"Barack Obama have many calling it a racial stereotype that goes waaay to far."

None Ya picked up that it is "way TOO far."

Oh, and as far as it being racial, don't tell Roscoe's.... Lighten up!

Colonel,

Videl preached change too... you can see where change got cuba. As a retired vet, I would think you'd vote for the guy who fought for this country vs one who would never think of doing such a thing.

We all know Barack and Michelle Obama are the most racist of them all (after all, they do attend a church who gave louis Farrhkan a life time achievement award in 2007, Michelle wrote a racial thesis in college everyone knows about, and Obama - as a bi-racial man has already admitted to "relating more to the black people" - which is not something you want to say when you're suppose to be bringing change- b/c what needs to change is the double standard in america), so why should anyone care if someone is racist back? There's a double standard in this country and to be quite frank, I'm so over it. If you were to put michelle in a room with all of us, she'd be quicker to point out the color of her skin before the rest of us, yet we're the racist "blue eyed devils" (in the words of Louis Farrhkan). Please.....


"Love knows no colors".... you wanna know what's wrong with that motto?! The fact that "color" is even mentioned, it shows that it will always exsist unfortunately.

Yes, Obama is a Waffler, GET IT ? He's sat in a racist church for 20 years, Rev Wright, was married by him, had his kids baptized by him and listened to his racist remarks towards white people, jews and anyone who DIED in 911...GOD DAMN America, by Obama!!!
I am so sick of anything that is said about Obama or charcertized as a satire as racist...Yet Obama can demean women on a regular basis, including Sarah with Lipstick on a Pig and his sweeite remarks to a reporter...on and on...his hatred towards strong white women is SO apparent.
Where are all the feminists booooohoooo ing

So you idiots would rather vote for mccain because he's white? Look what kind kind of campaign he's run. He's lied about nearly everything, he's double talked every issue he's been on, he said the Iraq war would be "easy" now he's saying "we'll be there 100 years." He introduces bills to the senate only to vote AGAINST them. He picks a woman simply to appeal to women voters. He makes slanderous claims against Obama. He can't give a speech to save his life. He hasn't given any detailed information on many of his policies. We still don't know what he plans to do with the economy. he got owned on the view. Palin sold her plane AT A LOSS. Palin was for her stupid bridge before she was against it- she only changed her mind because it was an embarrassment. She's just a harpie with lipstick, and a voice that makes nails on a chalkboard sound pleasing.

Don't forget the fact that mccain stated in his AUTOBIOGRAPHY that the ONLY reason he ran for president in 2000 was because "IT HAD BECOME HIS AMBITION TO DO SO." he said, and i quote, that he 'DIDN'T CARE ABOUT THE ECONOMY" or anything else. he just wanted the title of president.

You want him in the white house? LMFAO

Obama/Biden 08- we need change, not a person that changes the subject whenever it doesn't suit his senile old self.

I dare ANYONE to try to argue against those facts. mccain is such a double talker that he's the only man in history that could actually debate himself on every single issue.

Hey put some lipstick on that box! Racist? I don't think any more than it's sexist to put lipstick on a pig. Dems want it both ways. It's OK for them to be racist and sexist, but no one else can take a jab at their Messiah. NOT!

Thank you very much for bloging your ocmments on here. This will be the first time for me to vote and I was a little comfused to which way to go. You are the only one that made any since. All I read is the racial comments about Obama and that Sarah Palin is good looking. They don't even talk about McCain becauese I guess they have nothing good to say about him. I watched them on the debate the other night and McCain I thought was a little silly and didn't really make any since. I watched Palin and I really don't think she knew what she was talking about. So far the only one you had mention that has kept his cool and not running such a nasty campain is Obama. He is the only one that seems to know where his head is. And caring about the people of lthis country. We young people need to think about the future and what's right and wrong. And so far McCain doesn't seem like I would want to follow him and I sure don't want to follow the so called queen Palin. She can't even have time for her family. Thanks for inlightening me in who I should vote for. YOU MADE A LOT OF SINCE. OBAMA HAS MY VOTE

I don't understand why people think Obama is going to raise taxes when he has clearly stated the only taxes he is going to raise is of the wealthy few that make over $350,000 a year and large corporations who are getting all the Bush/Cheney tax breaks.

And for you young and uneducated, think Aunt Jemima pancakes and Sambo's and you will understand why this waffle crap is racist. The same goes with McCain's ad calling Obama "disrespectful." That comment goes back to Jim Crow laws and any black male who was disrespectful to a white woman could be beaten or hanged. Republicans can use the excuse they are uncomfortable with Obama's tax policies, but the bottom line is that they are all bunch of racists!

Huh? "Lipstick on a pig" isn't sexist, but "Obama waffles" are racist? Jesus, what a bunch of hypocrites Dems are.

This is obviously a reference to Obama whining about reporters bothering him while he was trying to have breakfast: "Gee, can't I eat my waffles?" Oh, and the fact that the dude changes his mind like a chameleon depending on who's listening to him at the time, which is known in political discourse as "waffling".

Aunt Jemima was a SYRUP, wasn't she? This is a waffle MIX. Big difference, lol. You fools.
