Skip to comments.Now peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist
Posted on 05/25/2014 2:06:55 PM PDT by kingattax
A public elementary school principal in Portland, Ore. has declared that eating or talking about peanut butter sandwiches is probably racist. She has also instituted a separate-but-unequal drum class for minority students only.
Verenice Gutierrez, the principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, discussed her bizarre brand of logic in an interview with the Portland Tribune.
What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches? Gutierrez asked. Another way would be to say: Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that? Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.
Harvey Scott K-8 also offers a segregated lunchtime drum class for middle school black and Hispanic boys only. Participants must be male. They cannot be white or Asian.
One parent, who wrote to the Tribune anonymously, calls the segregated class blatant discrimination and [in]equity of women, Asians, whites and Native Americans.
This club was approved by the administration, and any girls who complained were brushed off and it was not addressed, the parent added.

I remember writing a satire of this
Everything is not racist!!!!
Everything is now Climate Change Panic time
Every successful white man got everything they have when the white privilege fairy came and waved her wand. They did not earn it, work for it, or sacrifice for it. Most of all they do not deserve it.
End of story and you can not argue.
“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?
George Washington Carver, inventor of peanut butter. An African-American man, revered throughout the world for the advances he made against hunger.
Ignored in his own country, because he didn’t toe the victim-line and because the left is stupid.
Eat peanut butter or don’t, life will go on. Public schools CANNOT discriminate against their students on the basis of race, I THOUGHT we had worked this part out.
Mentally ill people shouldn’t be allowed to work around children.
Potatoes would be racist against Irish. French Fries would be a double header against French and Irish.
I’m going to a neighborhood party tonight where we’ll have watermelon, chicken, tortillas etc. We’re all...gulp...white! What do we do? How do we correct the error of our ways?
What about Chocolate peanut butter?
Get used to this crap; an increasing number of schoolchildren won’t eat peanut butter & jelly (in the same manner as many urban schoolchildren already don’t know what “father” means...
The next thing in their plans is to force kids to eat ethnic food they don’t like. We already have a first lady who tried to impose her food on schoolkids.
proper decorum restrains any comment.
What has been seen can't be unseen.
Does she know who George Washington Carver is?
This is bazaar and idiot. How far down this rat hole can they go. This beats the cake in stupidity. How did they ever become a principle of a school.
the answer, grasshopper, is hidden in plain sight.
Eat breakfast at home and bring your own damn lunch. Make mom or dad cook for you.
“The next thing in their plans is to force kids to eat ethnic food they dont like. We already have a first lady who tried to impose her food on schoolkids.”
Probably, but there will be few American parents left to protest at that point. Just overheard a commercial describing May as a month of celebrations, incuding Cinco de Mayo and Memorial Day. I’ve also noticed a bizarre trend of commercials on an English broadcasting station completely in Spanish...
I’m white and I don’t feel that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist toward my race.
Racist people think everything is racist. They project their faulty thinking upon everyone else. In this age of Obamaism, every white person is racist, even though the vast majority of them aren’t. We might as well celebrate racism by doing things like eating peanut butter sandwiches with prickly pear jam and jalapenos, with a side of candied yams and fried rice, finished with a big helping of watermelon.
Racism has been so relegated to the trivial it can no longer be taken seriously. If we do take it seriously, this lady should be prosecuted for hate crimes against white kids.
*What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches*
that’s a racist and repressive assumption demonstrating not only ignorance and insensitivity to anglo students, but also ignorance and insensitivity to somali or hispanic students. They didn’t all live in huts eating beans, rice and unleavened bread before they came here and they certainly don’t live on beans and rice after immigrating to the USA. Peanut butter was the first ‘natural’ sandwich ingredient (unless one counted cucumber and watercress), no meat products used, and so should be revered and promoted as environmentally conscious by the eco-nuts.
The shawarma is a (shaved) meat sandwich.
Pizza in Somalia
The torta is a leavened bread meat sandwich.
fast food in Mexico (towards the bottom of the list)
also, in Tijuana
Is this satire? Please?
You're trivializing the black and Mexican cultures, which is highly racist!
Oh thanks! Its going to take a couple of gallons of brain bleach to get that image out of my neurons...
I used to go so far as to disguise my peanut butter jars as pickle jars and I would buy my peanut butter from supermarkets out of town so that nobody who recognized me would see me buying peanut butter.
I do try to show my gastronomic diversity by eating tacos, sushi and General Tso's chicken when out in public but when I'm by myself and I'm fairly certain I will be alone for a while, I will gorge on peanut butter.
Please do not think less of me for it.
You can't make this stuff up.
The problem is that you "don't feel" therefore you must be insensitive and a racist. Also, you probably have some mental disorder, about not feeling, that can be overcome with the right treatment and a trip to a re-education camp. I'm sure treatment is covered under Obamacare/s
Never mind the nutritional value of peanut butter. . . .
I just sent a link to this thread to some relatives who moved to Oregon a few years ago. I told them they need to be saving sooner rather than later for private school education for their children.
Watermelon, peanut butter, jelly, bananas. Every other fruit and vegetable. Every word in Webster’s dictionary.
Say one of them and you’ll be called racist (if you’re White)
Welcome to the world after freedom of speech.
Eventually it will be racist not to be racist. Then they will have covered everything.
It already is. If you say, "There's no reason black children can't learn to read, write, and add as well as white or Asian children," then you're racist for not thinking black children are inherently unable to achieve basic literacy and numeracy.
You’re right. They’ve done it already. Racism is definitely in the eye of the beholder.
Someone should tell this woman the story of the Donnas. Teenage all-boy rock bands used to play in their lunchroom during lunch hour, so the girls got sick of it and formed their own band and eventually toured the world and made a fortune.
I am truly amazed how much a little pin head can hold so much crap
he Tribune notes that all principals employed by the Portland Public Schools participate in a district-wide equality training program called Courageous Conversations. The goal of the program is to condition principals and teachers to see their own white privilege, which will lead to an improvement in the academic performance of minority students.
It’s true, there are a lot of people out there making prejudgments or post-hoc analyses based on “race” or national origin. I have two words to say about black people: Thomas Sowell (and four more, “America’s Greatest Living Intellectual.”) I could add two words about “Hispanics,” Humberto Fontova.
This doesn’t mean every black person could be Thomas Sowell, any more than every white person could be Albert Einstein. However, you don’t have to be of even average intelligence to learn to read, write, and do basic math. You just have to be taught effectively and work at it, regardless of every other factor.
I hate hairy meat sandwiches.
As of 2014, the lunatics are running the asylum.
Shwarma is yummy. When my mom and I were in Amsterdam, the best food we got was falafel or shwarma. We ate three times at an Egyptian shop, the Nile Sphinx.
The Dutch serve hot dogs and French fries with mayonnaise or curry sauce. They have no concept of ketchup.
Once you buy into the BS of PC, racism, victimhood, anything is possible.
