What Exactly is a Croissant? Some Kenyans Think It’s an Expensive Beverage.

June 19, 2013
Yesterday and today, Artcaffe has been trending for all the wrong reasons. Apparently, someone tried to buy 8 croissants at one of their outlets but was turned away for being black.

Kenyans have been up in arms following the racism reports, but now, another subject is coming in.. What exactly is a croissant?

Understandably, not many of have seen one, leave alone take it. Some of those who have seen it did not ever think of its name. One person remarked how she refers to it as ‘ile pale’, as she walks past Bakers Inn.
This Facebook post further displayed our ignorance.

And then the jokes followed.
