American woman says a favorite Australian sandwich spread is racist because it is black!



One would normally think this is a spoof but it could be for real in the context of all the things that are said to be racist these days.  Vegemite and similar products are popular in Australia, Britain and some other English-speaking countries but Americans usually find it unpleasant.  Like most Australians, I always have some in my fridge -- JR

A bizarre online rant that claims "Vegemite is racist because its black" has gone viral.

Cassidy Boon, 20, aired her controversial anti-yeast spread views on YouTube as she launched a #banvegemite campaign. She said: "Eating Vegemite is racist towards Aboriginals - because it is black.  "If you eat Vegemite, you’re literally what’s wrong with the world."

"Ever since the 1950s - or whatever - Vegemite has been a way to symbolically make white Australians feel superior to Aboriginals by literally eating their f*****g skin in a jar.

The American adds that she spent seven years living in Australia during which she felt "ashamed of all of you".

The video is here.  She basically doesn't know anything about Australia, and is probably pretty dim generally.  Her use of profanity does not suggest much intellectual depth.

No cream gravy or vanilla ice cream for her!

Oh dear. Now we can't eat peanut butter, raspberry jam or bananas.

The woman has proved the old proverb: Better to say nothing and be thought a fool than to speak and prove you are.

You're right 4:16. I looked her up on YouTube. Her first uploaded video included a link to her blog, which included articles such as "NASA discovers planet covered in chocolate" and "12-year old Irish Boy who tried to get into pub using THIS fake ID knocks bartender unconcious and drinks 17 beers before passing out". Sounds like a "The Onion" wannabe.

Either way, she doesn't come across as a very pleasant person.
