    The examples listed are crappy. Not all southern food is crappy.

    southern
    etc


    Even with American, those food listed is not primary soul food

    Here is a basic list

    Oven baked chicken
    mac and cheese
    smothered pork chops
    greens
    black eye peas
    butter beans
    Salmon Croquettes
    Fried Cabbage
    Fried Corn
    Short Ribs
    pecan pie
    sock-it-to-me cake
    7 up cake
    pecan pie
    black berry cobbler
    neck bones
    ham hocks
    Where I live blacks and whites eat near about the same food. Maybe just a little different. But all "heart healthy" friend foods and such lol.

    Re: Calif. school apologizes for black history lunch menu

    So can anyone come up with a few dishes that would celebrate black history month that are NOT stereotypical and offensive that kids will actually eat?
    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.

    I didn't choose to be difficult, the offended did. Anyway, you are correct, the reality is quite simple, and speaks volumes.

    That's all racist food there. I'm thinking some small filet mignon's with baby red potatoes and peas with mint would be a hit. How about fresh, lightly curried trout with seasoned rice and fresh asparagus? A light mousse for desert. Maybe some Champipple to drink. All right, I blew it with the Champipple - it's Ginger Ale and Ripple. But if we're going to feed the kiddies something they might all like for Black History Month, why not go whole hog instead of just the hocks?

    I see. So to avoid offending any hyper sensitivities, every item on your list must be avoided/banned. No reason to risk stereotyping.
