    I live in Mexico and my son wants "Los Nachos" as his lunch every day. They are extremely popular here.

    If you want to acknowledge black history this month, learn it.

    I guess the poster, that ties cuisine with looking like a savage and other imagery might have something to do with it.

Apparently canned fish, and old stale oyster crackers don't work well together...

    I'm really starting to get sick and tired of all this outrage over "racist" events.

    Every March we all dress in green, wear shamrocks, eat corned beef and cabbage and dye our beer green. People ENJOY it.

    In May we eat Mexican food and drink margaritas. People ENJOY it.

    How much longer do we have to suffer through this "outrage" before we can start celebrating Black history with soul food and Jazz?

    I understand the history, and the projection. And I also understand the hyper-sensitive, and the agenda of the PC crowd. If you don't, I'd suggest you learn it.
