    Could be. I don't know. I do know that had I been an administrator at that school, if somebody had said something about the cuisine, I would have asked the students if they liked the food. It is a safe bet that 99% of them did like it. And then I would have explained that it was served especially in honor of Black History Month because this is among many great foods that mostly black people once created and/or ate long ago and we are so glad they did. Because it is so good and everbody can enjoy it now.

    You take foods away from the politically correct crowd to use for propaganda by refusing to use it in that way.

    Saw an old movie I had long forgotten... "THE WATERMELON MAN" starring black comedian Godfrey Cambridge ... in "whiteface"... I was chuckling all through it. That movie could not be made today probably.. Someone would bitch. Remember when we could laugh at ourselves and our sometimes screwy-funny attitudes?

    Good day to ya' A R

    The last bastion of where Americans can still laugh at themselves and laugh at others are comedy clubs. And you watch, they are the next target of the white beard scratching liberals.

    I posted above what has taken place in our military. That just about every joke there is will get you in trouble. My post was about a conversation I heard from some Marines at Camp Pendleton.

    My favorite comedy club is The Comedy & Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, Ca. (My old stopping grounds) Jay Leno is a regular at the club on many weekend nights.

    If any member of our military were to attend one of the shows and repeat some of the jokes on base, they would find themselves standing before the man, being reduced in rank and visiting Obama's Diversity Officer (political officer)

    I wonder what Red Foxx would have to say about todays liberal political correctness ? Don Rickles seems to still get away with what he does. Believe me, he's tough on the Japanese and it's funny. And Japanese tourist and businessmen laughing harder than anyone with tears running down their faces.

    I think Don Rickles is the last living great comedian.

    I REALLY like this idea. A food exchange activity works quite well in ESL courses and avoids any accusations of racism.

    Well, it would be a school lunch facsimile, so I wouldn't get too excited.

    Nobody is older than 50? Wow, I guess life expectancy is lower in the South.

    Wow, black people have never cooked for themselves before? Wow, you learn something new everyday.

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.
    Yes, but that doesn't mean you just ignore things. If a German leader came along talking about the things Hitler talked about, I'd expect the German people to be a little worried. Those who don't remember history are doomed to repeat it.

    Now if you ask me, the whole thing with this issue is just darn silly. Starting with lazy ass menu planners who said "I know what black people eat - fried chicken and watermelon!" Really, that's the best anyone could come up with is a stereotype? Maybe the fault is with the fact that there are those who don't know anything about other people that's not a stereotype. Seriously, you're trying to connect black people and food, and the best you can do is a stereotype?

    Perhaps I shouldn't be surprised that it turned into a Conservative tard fest - anytime you mention race in a way that isn't against white people, the usual suspects line up to deny it. I actually only posted it because of the sheer stupidity involved. The people who came up with it should be fired - not for being racist but for being stupid.
