The same applies to people who think serving fried chicken is racist.
    You're right. They aren't about to let racism die. The people, black, white, Hispanic, etc., who profit from racism want to keep it alive and well. And those who serve as lapdogs to such people are easily led along to support that. Which is why I would bet a good steak dinner that intentional racism was behind the brouhaha stirred up over what should have been a fun and enjoyable cafeteria meal. Again all concerned could have recognized the intent to serve 'ethnic' food for an ethnic occasion and had a good time discussing that. The fact that some will not allow it to be that only illustrates how much some are determined to keep racism at the forefront.

    Yup. Some even run fried chicken places. And I like fried chicken. A lot. I guess I'm black. Who knew?

    This thread made me think of something: I'm starting to wondering if Libbos have a problem with black folks being black folks. The OP clearly expresses outrage at the idea of Black History Month meal, much less what was served.

    I think having a "black history menu" is racist in the first place. Hell having a "black history" month is racist...

    A lot of these progressives in the education institutions claim "race" (or any difference for that matter) shouldn't be an issue YET these dumbass fools make race and other differences that people have the focal point of every issue.... Progressives are obsessed with race, sex and sexuality....

    I think liberals/progressives/statists/political class/leftist folks, as a group, are mostly worried that racism might not continue to be important. It is one of the biggest guns in their arsenal to silence, hurt, demonize, or terrorize the opposition. Given the sorry state of a too large percentage of the black people in this country, I have long known that they don't give a damn about black people other than for political advantage. In my opinion they are the largest blocks of racists remaining in this country and are determined to keep black people on the victims' list so they can continue to keep racism alive and well so they can capitalize on it.

    Demonizing an ethnic lunch of fried chicken, corn bread, and watermelon is just one way they do that. Again, the way to handle that was to see an 'ethnic' lunch for an ethnic observance for what it was--an 'ethnic' lunch of favorite foods. That is the way it should have been seen, enjoyed, and appreciated. But no. The racists wouldn't have it. They had to associate it with slavery and racism. Otherwise there is too much danger of actually assimilating those black people into American society and allowing them to be 'as good as everybody else.'

    Re: Calif. school apologizes for black history lunch menu[W:250]

    I remember way back when I was in high school we had one day where we had a "soul food meal" for black history month and it all tasted like ****.... Black eyed peas (which taste like mud), weird parts of animals I would never eat like pigs feet and pig guts..... The only good part of the meal was the collard greens (which I actually love) and when the meal was over.

    Yeah make kids eat that **** 5 days a week for a month....

    Also, go to any black "soul food" joint today and they actually DO serve fried chicken and waffles, watermelon etc, not to mention the same meal aforementioned in my previous paragraph.

    For sure, many of those who happened to be black have a different history than those who are English or Irish or German or Native American or of various Asian groups or of Hispanic heritage. And it should all be included in the history books, honestly and without exaggeration and without selective cherry picking for sociopolitical emphasis.

    But we are all sharing the same history now and our different individual histories should be educational and interesting in introspective and we can have fun celebrating some of them. But those histories should carry no weight whatsoever in how people who live here and now are treated. Until we see skin color as of no more importance than hair color or eye color, racism will continue to be alive and well in this country. And until we can enjoy 'ethnic food' from black people's history just as we enjoy Italian food or Greek food or German food or Mexican food, all that have roots in past history, racism will continue to be alive and well in this country.

    Fine, black folks are hereby banned from buying fried chicken, watermelon and cornbread. Because that would be racist if we sold those products to them. It be like giving Muslims pork if you ask some of these progressive educators.

    What the **** is "black history food" anyways?

    What the hell is European food? Latino Food, Dominican Food, Cuban Food? Chinese Food?

    I don't see Asians get all bent when they get served chopped seuy.....And thats not even Chinese or even Asian.

    Oh and I have been to PLENTY of black restaurants/BBQ's and they serve fried chicken, watermelon, cornbread - maybe some waffles, ribs and some good greens and it's all delicious..... WTF is wrong with people.

    The reason we have a black history month is that the other eleven months are white history months.
