An ice cream shop in Ocala, FL has been accused of racism because some believe a guy standing by the street dressed as an ice cream cone resembles a Klan member. Read story HERE. Sadly racism still exists in this country but is this really the face and outfit that touts white supremacy?
I have never attended a Klan rally and that’s something that isn’t on my bucket list but I think I can safely say that this man is not promoting a cross burning. Looking at the picture I would say this is a man trying to make a few bucks dressed as a sugar cone. Based on the waist-line of Al Sharpton I think its safe to assume he and other civil rights activists support the consumption of sugar cones on a regular basis. So where is the controversy???
Is it in the promotion of selecting “vanilla” as a flavor of choice? I think we are on to something. Adding a few sprinkles to the top of a vanilla cone does not make it multi-cultural so surely you understand the outrage. I’m a chocolate guy. I’m also a man of conviction. I don’t care if a man stands on a street corner dressed as a Grand Wizard with sprinkles on his head I will not be intimidated to order a vanilla cone. I like chocolate and nothing is gonna make me change my order in the custard line! We must stop this ridiculous mind-set that all people must order vanilla. Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry…it doesn’t matter. No matter what the color it’s all the same on the inside. It’s still ICE CREAM!!!
I have to go. I think the “Hamburglar” is in my driveway trying to hot-wire my car.
