    We also won WWII, but I'd still be worried about somebody coming along with a "final solution" for Judaism. Maybe for the benefit of all, we shouldn't worry about whether Israel can exist or not. Instead of treating the Jews as special.

    By all means keep right on bombing Germany, and also Japan, if that makes you feel better. Keeping animosities with Germany and Japan alive and well after peace has been achieved is comparable to keep fighting the war to end slavery, segregation, and discrimination after that has been accomplished.

    And while you're at it, turn your back on all our allies who are under specific and direct threat as if that has any relationship to the thread topic in anyway.

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!
    My family is mixed throughout the years, my paternal side is a complete Euro mix and that menu has food found in just about any southerner's diet. I get that the stereotypes include those foods but never understood the stereotype, all that stuff is delicious! And BTW my grandmother used to make the best fried chicken around. That said, I remember another one of these happening not too long ago, the female chef that set that menu was black and didn't understand the hubbub.

    That's the thing, it's food. Cuisine and techniques are based upon the availability of ingredients, "Cajun" food is based upon the tradition of French cooking because many of the royal chefs were exiled after the King was dethroned, they ended up in Louisiana and shared their knowledge with the fellow colonists so most Cajun people can cook a fine delicacy with anything the region provides(we're lucky, good soil, plenty of seafood, knowledge of spices and advanced techniques). Creole food shares many recipes but is based more on Carribean techniques and especially Haiti, so the flavor profile will be different as well as the techniques, but it's not odd to see Cajun and Creole cooks who can do dishes in either style.

    All diets are based on what is there and who can cook it. It shouldn't be a political thing.

We should be honored by non-blacks wanting to enjoy black cultural cuisine, Jazz, Gospel music, etc. in celebration of BHM.
    Or Motown and Philly soul, when I was younger I was more of a "rock only" guy but as I branch out I find myself going further back in time and enjoying the classics, everything from classical music, to rock, soul, and country but the Motown/Philly/Chitown soul is something unique and powerful, I dare people not to smile when listening.

    You're wrong. Black folk--those guys?--contributed as much to Cajun cuisine as the Cajuns did. As I mentioned earlier, gumbo is African in origin. Red jambalaya originated in the slave communities of South Louisiana. Jambalaya came from the Carribean Islands.

    A Black History themed meal wasn't a bad idea. Fried chicken and watermelon are just piss poor examples.

    I don't much care for watermelon, but the rest sounded pretty damn good. In fact, probably better than the normal bland crap served at these types of things.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
