Skip to comments.Penzey’s “Soul Box” to Fight Racism with Chicken and Ribs Spices
Posted on 01/15/2018 6:26:30 AM PST by Diana in Wisconsin
Just in time for Martin Luther King Day, Bill Penzey is calling every Trump voter a racist. To combat that racism, Penzeys Spices is giving away a free mini Soul Box normally $14.95 plus shipping and handling for just a shipping charge of $3.95. The box contains some cinnamon, some Cajun Seasoning and, yes, a rub for chicken and pork called 33rd and Galena.
Just the right gift for anyone on your list working to keep the goodness of the American soul alive, Penzeys Spices online catalog claims.
If the small box of spices isnt enough for you, Penzeys also sells a full American Heart and Soul Box that contains the Galena Street Rib and Chicken Rub. Both of the Soul spice boxes comes with a special Soul Pin so you can let everyone know youre not a racist.
We cant wait to see what Penzey gives away on Jackie Robinsons birthday. But despite the culturally insensitive promotion of a free chicken rub on Martin Luther King day, its Republicans that are the racists, according to Penzey.
This time, voting for the Republicans openly racist candidate was itself an act of racism, Penzey wrote in a Facebook post. This time theres no excuse.
Penzey added that conservatives who dont want to be seen as being a racist should just admit that their vote for Trump was a racist act. Voting for racism is racism, Penzey wrote. If you dont want to be publicly seen as a racist, dont vote for it.
Perhaps someone should have said to Penzey that if he didnt want to look racist, he shouldnt be giving away a rub for chicken and pork ribs on Martin Luther King day.
Do NOT buy from this company. This guy is insane!
FB Page, but it appears they scrub all negative comments. If you want to see a gathering of Socialists, this is certainly it!
I think a ‘soul pin’ would be cool though, and add to my office cred.
We used to use Penzey’s spices. When he published his first assault op-ed on conservatives in his catalog, we stopped buying from him. He must think that the homosexuals and Leftists will keep him in business.
Fighting racism with racial food stereotypes. Brilliant!
Do they offer that with a side of watermelon? Because I like watermelon!
Their stuff is ridiculously overpriced. I suppose if all you have is Kroger, they might look like a good idea. I have an ethnic grocery I go to that just kills them, and Kroger, on pricing for spices.
At 33rd & Galena!
Chicken and Ribs are racist. Is that all he thinks of when he thinks of diverse African Americans?
I’m surprised he’s not offering a free watermelon and grape drink also.
I stopped purchasing Penzey’s spices. I use to give them as gifts.
LOL! Was thinking the same thing. Talk about a business with a tin ear.
This guy is such an unbelievable jackass.
We have switched our allegiance to The Spice House, which, I believe, was founded by Penzsy’s sister. She may hold similar views — I don’t know. But I do know that she doesn’t send me insulting ‘newsletters’ telling me I’m racist and trying to shame me for my personal beliefs.
What would constitute NOT being racist to people like this? What are the criteria? Seems to me that for some nothing short of self immolation as a protest against Caucasians would suffice as proof of not being a racist.
More on this guy and an alternate business to buy from.

Same here. I’ve found a few other sources for herbs & spices and grow a lot of my own. I hope he ruins his business, but I doubt he will. He’s based in, ‘The People’s Republik of Madistan’ - a walking, talking flock of Socialists if you’d ever want to see one.
Thank you! Alternate vendors!
Thank you! Alternate vendors.
I post about this jerk whenever he does the next outrageous thing - and won’t be called on it by his like-minded customers. What a way to run a business. Not!
LOL! The Cherry on Top!
Call this idiot and let him know you’ll not be doing biz with such an ignorant owner....and, that he can get his biz from crazed, unhinged leftists, like him....
