You must know him (I don't), is he wrong for decrying the name change?

For crying out loud!


So, you folks call those with dark skin "coons"? We stopped doing that over half a century ago!

I particularly liked this sentence from your link; The cheese was previously wrapped in black and given the name "Coon" as a joke, he said.

Which is a bald faced lie because that is the name of the man who invented the process to manufacture cheese on a large scale. Here; https://patents.google.com/patent/US1579196A/en

Do you ever read any 'real' news sources?

I've known many gypsies in my life. All were proud to be and were never ashamed of that term.

And, of course, how is "gypsy" a race?

I really liked this quote from your propaganda source (only one side of a question is ever presented, it seems); The Nazis subjected Sinti - the name used by ethnic Roma based in Germany for centuries - to forced sterilisation under “racial purity” laws and Roma were deported to death camps, where they wore uniforms bearing a “Z” for “Zigeuner”.

Well, so were "Jews" and "homosexuals". Should we now stop using 'those' "racist(?)" terms?

We don't, actually.

It is the cheese guy's surname, so just an unfortunate coincidence.

I couldn't find where the patent information mentioned the packaging.

Either way, the sentence you have a problem with is nothing but hearsay.

Exactly.  It's a culture.

But the Nazi connection is bad.
