Sometimes you can't win

Even do-gooders can get it wrong
"Sweden's culture minister today faced furious calls to resign after she was pictured cutting a 'racist' black cake designed like a native African woman.

Lena Adelsohn Liljeroth had appeared at the Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm when she was invited to cut the cake which was designed like a naked African woman.

The Swedish minister cut pieces from the black cake, which had blood-red sponge and was designed to highlight the issue of female genital mutilation.

Despite the intentions of the bizarre cake, however, critics described it as a 'racist spectacle', and demanded Ms Liljeroth resigned for participating in the 'tasteless' event.

The Association for African Swedes said the cake was a crude racist caricature which 'makes a mockery of racism'.
