Same thing happened at my local steakhouse when they called it the Banker Steak because of how expensive it was.  Racism, pure and simple.

So it's a bowl of water?

Chicken soup is made from chickens, so gypsy soup is.....

Wait 'til this guy shows up...
 
2013-11-02 10:50:10 PM  
I can see why people would be offended by that. However, I laughed my ass off.
 
2013-11-02 10:50:30 PM  
Maybe the ingredients were procured creatively from the original owners because the original owners couldn't take care of them any longer.

I guess the owners of the restaurant have dealt with Gypsies before.
 
2013-11-02 10:52:16 PM  
Gypsy? Hmmm...what other race is known for thievery or crime? Couldn't we just name it by that race's name and be done with it?
 
2013-11-02 10:52:27 PM  
seriously though, c'mon restaurant guy. You don't need a crystal ball to predict people would be offended by this
 
2013-11-02 10:52:29 PM  
Did they feel jipped?

Caucasian soup sounds icky

That's different. They are God's chosen whipping boys.

Bankers aren't a race. Now, if they'd called it 'Jew soup' for that reason, that would be analogous to this story.

Considering this happened in Malmo, you would think the police would be more concerned with the massive increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes than soup
 
2013-11-02 10:57:22 PM  
"First, steal a chicken..."

Wait til they hear about the restaurant's Jew Stew
 
2013-11-02 10:58:47 PM  
That's Rasicist.

That's the Irish, not the Roma.

/I see you have that cookbook too
 
2013-11-02 11:00:39 PM  
What? Gypsies steal things. I don't see a problem. Was the soup stock made with kidnapped children?

Are Canadians afraid of the dark?
 
2013-11-02 11:05:19 PM  
I should give a shiat that someone is offended about something why?
 
2013-11-02 11:06:25 PM  
To put this in perspective: They could have called this 'American soup' and filled it with fried Twinkies.

Halfling soup?

"Gypsy" is not a race. Get a brain.

Q: How do you make a Puerto Rican omelette?
A: First, you steal 2 eggs...

That wouldn't be racist if it was served at a state or county fair.
 
2013-11-02 11:21:16 PM  
Does it come with free bread?
 
2013-11-02 11:25:13 PM  
Are there real Gypsies in your Gypsy Soup?
 
2013-11-02 11:30:55 PM  
Gypsy isn't a race, what if they called it Redskin's soup? Or worse, Eagles soup?

Because nobody is going to eat Kender stew
 
2013-11-02 11:37:08 PM  
Ironic-fortified soup...Restaurant owner's name: "Rasic" Does the soup come with "t"?
 
2013-11-02 11:37:18 PM  
A genetic disposition to crime that far outweighs anything that's been brought to America.
 
2013-11-02 11:38:21 PM  
Jews don't really steal - they cheat you out of your stuff because they're smarter/more clever than you. They also have brought lots of redeeming social qualities to western civilization, like civilization.

Gypsies, well, everyone hates them. They're apparently originally from India, which is sort of interesting.

Oh you mean us whiteys that stole a whole country? Don't we usually get called crackers and honkeys?

Veiled racism in Malmö is dangerous

I bought a Malmö from Ikea for $49.  It doesn't look racist to me.

Jews aren't a race either. It's a religion or cultural background, just like being a gypsy.
 
2013-11-02 11:45:46 PM  
that's racist! they should be calling it "Roma Soup".

geez.

I was in Sweden as a teen.  One night all the ducks disappeared from the local pond. The explanation given "Gypsies".  Apparently the Swedes have gypsy history.

The Gypsies are so hated in Europe that the Nazis get a pass for exterminating a couple million of them.

Does the term for "subtle racism" in Swedish translate to "veiled" or is somebody trolling?

"I'll just take it like a man" in response to someon with her panties in a wad? Really?

There's nothing subtle about the racism in Sweden these days. Socialism and extremely high taxes don't mix well with a liberal immigration policy.

Well, TV Evangelist soup doesn't draw as much of a crowd as you'd think...

Now *that's* trolling!

8.0!

I would've given a 9, but this isn't the politics tab. Maybe next time, champ.
