    Dude, if we can not only understand the history of the stereotypes and what they were used for, and put aside the PC problems, I have one basic question?

    What did you expect when your facility is supposed to placate parents? That's what they are supposed to do on a regular basis. What they do not compromise on is curriculum and some matters of school policy and discipline. Otherwise, being politically correct is the reality of a public school. They try to placate the community, whether it is a conservative one, liberal one, or purple. They are very politically correct on a regular basis, and it's not just the racial minorities and the liberals they like.

    When they make a screw up like this (which this is), guess what? Parents will complain.

    The more "black" food that's brought up, the more I think celebrating their cuisine during Black History Month is completely legit.

    In May we eat Mexican food and drink margaritas. People ENJOY it.

    How much longer do we have to suffer through this "outrage" before we can start celebrating Black history with soul food and Jazz?

    Who said you couldn't?

    I go to numerous black food and jazz festivals all the time where it is multicultural and everyone is having a great time.

    By the way , I love how if it doesn't offend you then it is being hyper-sensitive.
    I understand why people are upset.

    What you're failing to understand yourself, is how something presumably innocent get's turned into something culturally insensitive and derogatory.

    If you don't understand why that is a serious problem, then I suggest you need to think about it some more.

    And FYI, telling me to learn something is not being polite. It is presumptive and dismissive. So you can step down from the pedestal.

    That reminds me of an episode of Treme, in which tourists come to New Orleans to explore its culture. The show's "loser" is hired on as a concierge in a nice hotel, and he proceeds to direct the tourists looking for the real New Orleans to the parts that you're not supposed to send white people. The tourists have an absolute blast, and the concierge is subsequently fired.

    Soul food origins came from the left over scraps that slave masters didn't want and gave to slaves. I'm willing to bet the southern slave owners loved some fried chicken
    ugh, soul food has evolved since then, mate. Also, chicken is a easy meat producing animal to raise and doesn't require much in resources or room. hence, why it is favored by economically disadvantaged groups, like african american slaves and poor african americans after emancipation

    Why are you asking me? You're from America, you know what they are.
