Another Year, Another Racially Insensitive Cafeteria Menu(Moonbat Madness Barf Alert)
Pajamas Media ^ | January 30, 2011 | Ed Driscoll

Posted on 01/31/2011 7:58:55 AM PST by lbryce

Do these stories happen every year? This was posted yesterday at the Daily Caller:

A California university says it was bad taste to serve chicken and waffles on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Officials at the University of California, Irvine, say the menu of stereotypical black food was served on Jan. 17 — the first day of the school’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. symposium.

The dining hall advertised the meal as an “MLK Holiday Special.”

The co-chairman of the school’s Black Student Union and another student lodged formal complaints.

University spokeswoman Cathy Lawhon tells the Los Angeles Times that the cafeteria staff made a last-minute decision about the menu. She says the intention was to offer holiday comfort food. The company that runs the cafeteria says it will conduct cultural sensitivity training for its chefs and managers.

Last year, the NBC commissary at Rockefeller Center in New York featured this menu:

As somebody quipped on twitter back then, “I’m simultaneously offended and hungry.”

Presumably they too had cultural sensitivity training in response. Is there a firm that first supplies these menus to cafeterias and then the requisite cultural sensitivity training afterwards? OK, I didn’t think so, but why do these things keep happening amongst our enlightened betters in the media and academia?

NBC (to black cook): Create a Black History Month menu so we can show our commitment to diversity.
Cook: Will do.
(Later)
White liberal: I’m offended by this menu.

Why isn't intent ever important anymore? I have no doubt the "intent" was to be nice and do something to honor the day. Most likely the the staff has a few African Americans that could have requested the menu. Just because something is "stereotypical" doesn't mean people don't like it.

I'm Polish. and yes, I like stereotypical Polish food. I would not be offended if on Polish American day a cafeteria offered pierogies and kielbasa. I would be very pleased in fact.

Wow, who knew MLK enjoyed Aquafina bottled water?!? Where’s the chitlings and watermelon?

I had some fried chicken last night. It’s so confusing, does that mean I’m PC or un-PC or just enjoy some good ol’ southern fried chicken?

A more contemporary menu for Black History month would have included wagyu beef and lobster, courtesy of the Obama’s.

While in culinary arts school we had to prepare meals for black history month. Of course the menu is going to reflect the black culture in America. What do they want us to serve to honor the subject? Tubers and antelope?

I think they have their squelch turned up too high and are getting feedback from themselves.

LOL! It’s sad, but funny.

We had an Indian dignitary come to our offices when I worked for a major financial organization back in the early 2000s. They were doing a meet-and-greet since we were outsourcing our IT stuff over there.

My manager was (still is) such a dolt that he scheduled a dinner at the swankiest STEAK HOUSE in the area.

This is probably an immaturity on my part,
but when I figure out that someone is going to get offended no matter what is said,
or that they are feigning offense in pursuit of another agenda,

I will intentionally offend.

But I’m just a “cracker”, I guess.

stereotypical black food

Well, I'm offended by black food too - it means they cooked it TOO DANG LONG!

Seriously, can we just get over the "black food" idea?

Can you give it a bloody rest?

The ONLY reason that it's "stereotypical" is because of stupid stories like this.

I eat fried chicken, I eat watermelon, and my mom tried real hard to get me to eat collard greens. I am not black and IT'S NOT BLACK FOOD!

Seems to me like the only reason the food is called "black food" is so somebody can FREAKIN' WHINE ABOUT IT.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the choice of food, but by the content of their character.

Every other racial/ethnic group CELEBRATES with food associated with their backgrounds.

But if you suggest a food is associated with American Blacks you are racist.

Go figure.

Are they embarrassed of eating or something?

Good point. Who knows how they “fried” the chicken in trans-fat free NYC. They must have used some sort of tofu-soy-sunflower seed oil. And real buttermilk is certainly out of the question.

Agenda: Keep racism alive. Keep groups pitted against one another (Stalin, Hitler). Keep the race baiters’ income coming in. Keep racial politics (POWER) going.

There is no way these agenda items will be sacrificed in the name of ending racism.

Yes Virginia...it’s racist to serve MLK’s favore meal on a day in his honor...

Late Democrat James Earl Ray smiles from the depths of hell...

Oh...you didnt know Ray was a democrat?

“Ray arrived in Los Angeles on November 19. While in L.A., Ray attended a local bartending school and took dance lessons. His chief interest, however, would be the George Wallace presidential campaign. Ray harbored a strong prejudice towards African Americans and was quickly drawn to Wallace’s segregationist platform. He would spend much of his time in Los Angeles volunteering at the Wallace campaign headquarters in North Hollywood.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Earl_Ray

Wallace ran the first three times for president as a

*drum roll please*

DEMOCRAT.
