Ben and Jerry - raaacist?

Linsanity is getting out of hand with the limited edition Lin flavor - and the unlimited paranoia about the racism of adding fortune cookies to the flavor.
The limited-edition flavor, "Taste the Lin-Sanity," featured crumbled fortune cookies along with honey swirls and a frozen yogurt vanilla base.
After a near-immediate backlash over the racist implications of using a fortune cookie, the Cambridge, Mass. store issued an apology on its Facebook page on Friday — and substituted the fortune cookies with the waffle variety.
Just trying to ride the Linsanity wave, and getting crushed by the undertow.
UPDATE: Part of the roundups at Daley Gator and Jeffords.
