I have a deep German heritage, and I like sauerkraut. People go to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg and get sauerkraut on the German part of the park................have we seen Germans riot over it? No, not since the park opened.

    The offended people need STFU!

    Haha, I'm not sure how people fall into these little predicaments.

    It goes against every grain of common sense.

    Obviously spaghetti.

    On a serious note, not aligning the food with the festivities would have been a better idea.

    Well, I can't possibly see how wingless dried termites on the menu would cause concern for anyone. It's documented, and culturally acurate...

    LOL, I was the only white person working in a black owned company once and for Juneteenth, they brought in ribs and watermelon for lunch. Although its fine when they do it, its insulting when whites do it.

    I can think of other black traditions that don't easily cross race lines. For instance, if a white person wears African garb to a BHM ceremony, you're gonna get some blowback.

    White ants are very popular in the east AFrican interior. No kidding. I passed on the opportunity to enjoy them. But only because I'm white.

    If a white person wears "African garb" they usually look like a ridiculous douchebag. The blowback for that is deserved.

    Don't let that stop your persecution complex.
