    George Washington carver: the token black of american history classes. In any other context, I doubt you would here much about the guy in a general history class.

    Personally,I always thought the independence struggle and political development of Haiti and Liberia; greater focus on Frederick Douglas; covering Ralph Ellison, W.E.B. DuBois, Marcus Garvey or the the Emmett Till case would all be better contributions to one's education on black america than the peanut guy

    What is more telling.....that the Obama daughters school served Japanese food on Pearl Harbor Day or someone took the time to find that snippet out?

    I am curious....how many of the parents of the kids at Sidwell Friends are bonafide liberals?

    Just not feeling the issue with either.

    Is something wrong with chicken and watermelon? Where is the damned biscuit - the major issue.

    Same thing with Sidwell, what the hell is wrong with Japanese food? Is eating sushi somehow saying you respect the kamikazis and Pearl Harbor attacks?

    Not saying either were stellar ideas - just not seeing the damage - unless they undercooked the chicken or left the raw fish sitting out too long.

    I can't find the original Washington Post article, but I did manage to track down (I think) the menu for the day.

    Asian Mushroom Soup
    Oriental Noodle Salad
    Classic Spinach Salad
    Teriyaki Marinated Chicken Strips
    Szechuan Tofu & Veggies
    Garlic Roasted Edamame
    Vegetable Fried Rice
    Fortune Cookies

    Oh yeah, Asian Mushroom Soup and Oriental Noodle Salad. Those are favorites in, uh...Asia.

    You have two decidedly Japanese dishes (edamame and teriyaki), but that's it. Everything else is universally found throughout most of Asia, except for the fortune cookies which were invented here in the United States. I hate to use this expression, but um...*cough*...faux outrage.

    You also have to love how the Fox article goes from "Japanese Inspired Lunch Menu" in the headline to "Asian themed menu" in the article.

    When this story first broke back in December of 2011, the same question was asked on the former Politico forum.
    The conclusion, a lot of liberal elitist send their children to Sidwell Friends School. You don't think they're going to send their children to a public school run by teacher unions do you ?

    If there was a link to the particular Politico thread, I would post it. But those idiots over at the Politico said that they were going to remove all of the Politico forum's archives from the internet. And that's exactly what they did even though many members of the Politico community protested.

    But maybe one of the Politico refuges on the DP can concur ?

    I remember looking at that menu back in 2011. Looks more like the menu from the Chinese fast food joint you find at your local strip mall.

    And we know that back in the late 1970's the liberals PC Words Police had declared the word "Oriental" to be racist and politically incorrect.
    Oriental Noodles is racist, it's now Asian Noodles.

    Originally there was a photo that showed the entrance of the schools cafeteria that showed a big sign that said "Pearl Harbor Day" and then right below was the menu. I think that's what set many off.

    Maybe I'll search for the photo. It gives one a better perspective what all the bitching was about.
