In Leipzig, a heated debate has emerged about a popular ice cream classic. The focus of the discussion is on soft ice cream with chocolate coating, which has sparked arguments among locals. Left-wing politician Oliver Gebhardt has taken things to another level by calling for the dessert, commonly known as “Eismohr,” to be banned. He claims that the use of this word is “racist” and uses language that is “absolutely shocking and shameful.”

The term “Moor” was used as a derogatory term for black people during colonialism, and today it is classified as “outdated” and “discriminatory.” Despite years of debate, some places still use this term out of tradition, such as in the controversial “Mohrenkopf” (chocolate kiss) or the “Mohr im Shirt” (Austrian cake with cream).

The soft ice cream name was found on the menu at several stands at the ongoing trade fair, Haus Garten Freizeit in Leipzig. The organizers have emphasized their rejection of racism and exclusion of minorities and immediately took action to remove any wording that could be viewed as critical once they became aware of it. However, it seems that not everything went according to plan. While there were no issues with other advertising signs at the fair, there were two instances where the term “Ice Ear” was being advertised on two separate stands without anyone’s knowledge.

Consequences were drawn immediately after information about this issue was brought to their attention, and they removed the term from both signs with immediate effect. The spokeswoman for Leipziger Messe stated that they cannot check every advertising sign but are grateful for information to prevent violations of their humanistic worldview.
