AN anti-racism campaigner says Coon cheese is next on his hit-list after the Queensland Government ruled a grandstand being rebuilt in the state's south would not be renamed after E.S. "Nigger" Brown.
Mr Hagan, said the cheese, formerly manufactured by Kraft, used to have a black wraparound and was named Coon as a joke.

FYI "Coon" cheese is an Aussie brand name, anyone reading this topic who is not Aussie (or Brit) may not understand half of what is said here as us Aussies love to launch off into Aussie slang when we see something we disagree with.
