    lol, you got to be kidding? Clearly he's speaking of cooking within the context of special meals for BHM.

    <<<Create an opportunity for black people themselves to prepare meals and serve their holidays. >>>

    There's nothing "clearly" about the post. It's in English, but just barely.

    I agree. Just like most people (especially in the south) loves fried chicken.

    Everyone in the north east who eats chicken loves fried chicken too.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    What you're doing is treated them as different, and inferior, people. By constantly placating, apologizing, justifying, coddling, and underestimating our fellow black Americans through the myriad of programs and lower standards requirements, we are collectively just perpetuating the stigma and challenges longer.

    Until we truly treat them as equal, we are doing them a great disservice. And I'll argue all day that the Democrat party does this knowingly, intentionally, and with no sincere hope of actually helping them, but rather controlling them.

    Democrats practice institutionalized racism with a reverse psychology against the black community.

    all that from thinking that watermelon and fried chicken as a celebration of black history was a bad idea?

    Why do we have Black American History Month, Asian-Pacific American History Month, Jewish American Heritage Month? What's wrong with simply American History Month?

    Yeah, that's it...

    If they wanted a "black" cuisine day, there are plenty of options (as pointed out by apdst). A little more thought than a stereotype would actually be what you are talking about. Perpetuating a stereotype by saying "Well I can't think of anything black people like other than fried chicken" is holding them back also, and you're standing up for that. You're here defending that someone did some really lazy ass thinking and relied on a stereotype, and blaming it on Democrats.
