Ohh c'mon, I mean it's not like they tried to serve fried chicken and wate-

But when the school announced a menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, other students and parents became offended.

Well, shiat.

Etchy333: Kind of begs the question of what a "Black History Month" menu that doesn't incite outrage would look like.

No menu. Send the kitchen staff out to get their hair done and let the kids fix their own damn lunch...

Etchy333: Ha, I went to the public school around the corner from here.  It's been awhile since I graduated, but the percentage of black students at this school is probably very low.

Kind of begs the question of what a "Black History Month" menu that doesn't incite outrage would look like.

We should all be ashamed that black people eat things.

Cyno01: American sections in the foreign aisle of european supermarkets.

Pffft. Look at those blueberry pop tarts. Unfrosted? Go back to Germania, commies. Everyone knows pop tarts have to be glazed with a substance containing at least three Mountain Dews' worth of sugar, otherwise it doesn't give you that satisfying kick in the pancreas.

This is a mockery of the cuisine of my people, sir.

nekom: Are stereotypes about liking a particular food even harmful?  Seriously, I'm whiter than sour cream and I love fried chicken and watermelon.  Is it somehow bad to be thought of as someone who would eat such things?

abiigdog: Why are blacks so butthurt about fried chicken and watermelon, both are fine and delicious choices. I think the rest of us would just wish you guys wouldn't be such pussies about EVERYTHING.

The racial chip-on-the-shoulder that always bugs me is the reaction to the phrase "you people" when directed at any group that has more than one African-American in it. When all you mean is "the collection of individual I see here", they still get all pissed off and say, "What do you mean, 'you people'?"


If I were trying to be racist or single out the Black folks, I'd say "You Black people", for fark's sake.

Most of these foods are just southern--fried chicken, cornbread, collards, watermelon. Coming up as a young fellow back in the 60's & 70's, the one food that I always associated with black folks was crabs. Seemed like nearly every weekend in the black sections of towns all along the Gulf Coast there were multiple groups of negros sitting around on chairs with a bushel of crabs in the center and a cooler of beer nearby. They'd sit around and worry on the crab legs, drink the beer and shoot the breeze. Now that the population is three times as big and overbuilding has ruined the ecosystem on the bayous, crabs are hard to come by and ain't much of that happening anymore. Sort of sad, really, this once great black tradition gone.

I am similarly offended when spaghetti is served in October or potatoes in March or tacos in September. Schools should really know better by now.

It's 2014, people. Your culinary racism isn't appropriate. I don't care how tasty something is, you can't eat it during the month honoring the ethnic group you stereotype it as being associated with. It's just not ok anymore.

Lorelle: nighble: We're in a pretty diverse, educated area, but the elementary school my son goes to decided that they would have a Mexican celebration day last year. Aside from a Messican themed lunch, they encouraged the kids to don fake mustaches... For some reason, idunno. CSB.

OK, now THAT is offensive.

They should have the girls don the fake mustaches on Columbus day.

Strangely enough, I actually know white people who don't like fried chicken.

I'm not one of them.

Do your part for racial harmony. Stop black people from eating. You could be helping to create a final solution to racial tensions in America.

Contrabulous Flabtraption: Everyone loves fried chicken. Especially blacks.

There was a strangely racial aspect to food in Tyler, Tx. The KFC was run by white trash, the Wendy's by blacks, the Chinese place by jews, and the japanese steakhouse / sushi was run by Koreans.

Of course, if you wanted good fried chicken you really just had to drive a few miles to the Williams Family fried chicken shack.

Now I have the option of the place run by highschool students with rancid oil, or food poisoning from illegals with no understanding of cross contamination.
