Coon cheese to change name now!!
Oh man when I first got to Australia and saw the coon cheese, I thought it was funny.

Less than 50%:

“ The change comes after more than two decades of campaigning by Indigenous activist Stephen Hagan.
The company was originally Australian-owned, and the cheese is said to be named after American Edward William Coon.
Mr Coon patented a process of making cheese in Philadelphia.
"Coon" was historically used as a racial slur against people with dark skin, particularly of African-American, Australian Aboriginal, or Pacific island heritage.
The brand change comes after confectionery giant Nestle announced it would rename its Chicos and Redskins products.”

Why are these white liberals so offended?

I've never heard of black people complaining about any of these companies in the past. It's no like they were working hard to get any of this change or showed any signs of being offended.

That's kind of silly to change their name.

There are lots of Coon's in America. It's a common last name.

But there aren’t ‘Coons in Australia. Coons used to be black Whigs, they wore raccoon skin hats like Davy Crockett, hence the nickname. Also, the guys name was Coon! Put a picture of him on the cheese packet and let people learn about him.

if they're going to change the name why not just lose the "C" and add a "B" and a "G" and call it "Boong" instead.
