Bulgaria's Anti-Dimiscrimination Watchdog to Sit over 'Racist' Biscuits
The anti-discrimination authority of Bulgaria is to hold a session on Thursday after claims lodged by a Bulgarian citizen over a brand biscuits whose name she considers "racist".
"Negarche", a brand roughly translated as an insulting word for some African people (in this case referring to a kid), are Bulgarian biscuits that have been manufactured for decades, some time before non-discrimination standards were established.
However, the non-discrimination commission's website shows a claim has been filed by Albena Jones, a Bulgarian citizen against the company producing Negarche over what she believes is racial bias.
The website Money.bg quotes the company as saying Jones' compaint is groundless, while the biscuits themselves are popular among consumers.
