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.
    Some on the left seem to disagree with you and will blame others who had no connections to the past and will blame them for what others did before them be they their ancestors or not.

    Shrimp snd crawfish aren't anymore Black than Spanish, Cajun, or French. Cajuns made crawfish a delecacy, because when they were dumped off in South Louisiana, they had to utilize whatever food sources they could find. Boiled, or fried crawfish isn't representitive of Black culture in America.

    Be careful when you suggest "soul food"; fried chicken is the list, along with greens, ham hocks, fried porkchops and cornbread and any other "racist" dishes.

    Those issues no longer exist; no one is alive that remembers when they existed. It's time to stop acting as if it's reality.

    The more I read about this issue the more I think it's just some people looking for an issue to complain about.
    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.

    Agitators.

    That's all they are. Always causing trouble, dividing the people. No diffrent than anarchist.

    After more than four decades of these agitators, I've had enough.

    I have a message for them.

    " Now who the #### do you think you are
    Trying to #### and divide my friends
    Come around try it again and see how it ####### ends
    Better hope you never see me again
    Cause if those drugs don't #### you up, I will "

    Not my lyrics but how I feel.

    Aren't community organizers nothing more than agitators ?

    Probably everybody on the left disagree with me, but this is a topic I feel strongly about. Morgan Freeman is right that the way to correct omission of black people from the history books we all use is to include black people appropriately in those history books. It is not by having a 'Black History Month' that emphasizes that black people are separate from everybody else. And the best way to combat racism is to stop talking about it.

    Using the same logic, the way we keep really good foods like fried chicken, cornbread, and watermelon from becoming racial slurs is to stop treating them like they are.

    I'm willing to bet that it was a white liberal agitator who took offense that fried chicken and watermelon was served for lunch and eaten by white school children.

    And what do white liberals do ? They agitate and went looking for self appointed leaders of the black communities yelling whites are racist, look what they're doing, they are eating fried chicken and to prove they are racist, they had some watermelon.
