    They could've hired Paula Dean to cook it and dressed the workers in period plantation wear.
    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.

    A Black History themed meal wasn't a bad idea. Fried chicken and watermelon are just piss poor examples.
    I actually meant the people mentioned in the post I replied too. All great people, but none of those individuals (those guys) had as much impact on food as George Washington Carver. That's what I was saying.

    Black people as a whole have had a lot of impact on good food.

    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.

    The point, which you seem to have missed, is that just because "we won that war" doesn't mean we just ignore all the issues that led to it as if they were ancient history.

When I drank the beer and went to the urinal/trawl, my thought was that never did the kidneys have to do so little to turn the beer from its original state to its end product.

    German lagers are a bit lighter for sure, but Hefferveisen is a pure wheat beer, it's pretty dang hearty if I do say so myself.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    We also don't expect every modern day German to wear sack cloth and ashes and hang their heads in shame at all times and look for the slightest anti-semitic nuance in dress, language, or cuisine. Most Germans living today had nothing whatsoever to do with WWII or anything that led up to it just as no Americans living today had anything whatsoever to do with slavery and very few had anything to do with segregation or discrimination against blacks. The history should be taught yes. We should never forget yes. But neither should the innocent living be held accountable for the sins of their ancesters. And Germans should not keep anti-semitism alive and never allow a Jewish person to be assimilated into normal German society. And Americans should not keep racism alive and use silly political correctness to remind black people that they aren't ready to be fully assimilated into American culture.

    I love all the things on the menu but I think it is not the right meal for black appreciation month IMHO. There must be other meals more suitable for that. Food that black people are famous for. Gumbo, soul food, crayfish, shrimp etc. might have been more appropriate than fried chicken and watermelon.

    The recipe is simple. Create an opportunity for black people themselves to prepare meals and serve their holidays. That they will cook, that they eat it.

    When I read your posts, I feel like I'm deciphering ancient hieroglyphics.

    Thanks and you're right. Black culture had contributed immeasurably when it comes to music. The Motown era was a little before my time but the foundation it laid was built upon to create today's pop and urban music. I'm sure if asked Justin Timberlake, Kid Rock, Cindy Lauper, Christina Aguilaria, and Hall and Oats would give credit to the black musicians in history as their influences. I even met a Christian pop singer once named Chris August who says Stevie Wonder was his biggest influence.

    Sometime you just want to kick it old school and listen to some Smokey Roblinson and the Miracles.
