Sorry, but non-stories, which is really what this is, infuriate me
A racist school lunch in California was part of an inappropriate reenactment for Black History Month. NewsMax reports Feb. 7 that Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord served fried chicken, collared greens, watermelon, and corn bread in recognition of the awareness month. The school apologized for “perpetuating racial stereotypes.”
Excuse me for asking the dimwit, and by dimwit I mean someone dumber than a box of rocks, who wrote that first paragraph a couple of questions.
First how can food be racist? Seriously how? Second, what, exactly was being “reenacted” at the lunch? Do you even have a clue what reenactment means?
According to the report, the racist school lunch upset several parents..as well as other educational instructors throughout the community.
AGAIN with the RAAAAACIST school lunch line.
“Chicken, watermelon, collard greens — these stereotypes of black Southern culture that come from the same place where the N-word comes from,” Professor James Taylor from the University of San Francisco said.
Actually professor those foods are not stereotypes. They ARE staples of Southern food. Yes, Professor many Southerners, most of them White eat those foods, and other Southern staples. There is nothing “racial” about those foods, collard greens are delicious, when prepared correctly, and I should add that my grandfathers greens were the best! So was his cornbread, only surpassed by my grandmothers. And fried chicken? You are talking about THE Southern food, for Southerners of any color! So, I must ask why anyone would be outraged, unless of course the food was cooked by a Yankee, in which case it was likely not worth eating.
And, one final question. How is changing a school menu going to address the REAL problems among too many blacks in America? Unwed mothers? The high crime and incarceration rate, gangs, Black on Black violence, the high unemployment. Is getting your panties in a bunch over fried chicken and cornbread going to help solve those problems? What is that? They aren’t? Then why in the Blue Hell are you going on about a school lunch?
