Where will this stop? Now there is another campaign by the same person to change the name of a White Milk, this is just madness and unnecessary.

It has been called Coon Cheese sinch 1935 and named after its creator Edward William Coon. Now I am certain he was just naming this delicious cheese after himself as a little reminder of what a wonderful job he did in creating such a tasty cheese - it has been acceptable for 85 YEARS - so why change it now??

Then Coon cheese can be named after its founder. The world needs to see people as people first and whatever colour they are about 10th. That's how we were bought up and how we bought our kids up.
