They should have a Holocaust Remembrance Day where kids are made to eat cockroaches and worms. Oh Rosh Hashanah, students should be fed matzo ball soup with googly eyes on it to symbolize the children it's made out of. On Native American day, we should eat stuffed turkey and pumpkin pie to reminisce on that one time Europeans people were nice to the Native Americans. Then, on St. Patrick's, black people should show to Irish homes with bags of freshly made potato salad. On 5 de Mayo, Mexican kids should be asked to prepare a nice plate of tacos made with crepes and fois gras. On Canada Day, a beaver should be chased through the streets of New York and beaten to a pulp, then seasoned with maple syrup and free healthcare.
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
In the Lifetime movie "Road to Christmas", photographer Claire (Jennifer Grey) is talking with her beautiful black model friend N'naa (Ingrid Hart). The gist of the conversation is that N'naa comments on Claire's Italian fiancé. Claire's comment was something to the effect of "Saying that Italian men are womanizers is like me saying that because you are black you must like watermelon." N'naa's response was: "I DO like watermelon. It's one of the few things I can eat."
That, in my opinion, is the importance that should be put on this whole ridiculous political correctness nonsense. By looking for racist connotations in everything or demanding that they have to exist in something as innocuous (and good) as fried chicken and watermelon is straining at gnats to keep racism alive and well and at the forefront of everything.
