I have never seen food advertised as white peoples food.
Shes such a racist itsnot funny.
Eat like whitey or die!
Eating food from ethnicity not your own is “cultural appropriation”.
I can summarize the article: Fat racist black woman eats healthy food and loses 60#, feels better, blames “white people food”.
Exactly. They’re talking about SJW food. Effete white liberal living in a gated/gentrified community sending their kid to private school food.
Soul food is really southern food — common to both blacks and whites down here.
The problem with southern food, if it has one, isn’t the inexpensive cuts of meat and vegetables. It’s the carbs. The rolls, the biscuits, the cornbread, the super sweet tea, in super sized portions.
I get so frustrated with the whole racial food angle. Food could easily be an area of common traditions and enjoyment, especially here in the south. But nope, gotta make it a social justice thing and keep people divided.
Indeed, one can prepare healthy food at home on a shoestring budget.
We had several lean years, but it was important to me that my kids were fed nutritious foods. One thing we didnt do was eat restaurant food. A whole chicken is $.95 a pound. Roast the chicken then use the bones for stock. Cabbage, eggs, oats, pumpkin-superfoods (list varies) that are inexpensive.
It takes work, but it can be done. Now that I think about it; we ate healthier then than we do now that things arent so hard.
Those who divide us by race are, by definition, “racially divisive”.
This person is the textbook definition of a racist.
Rather than doing veganized soul food like the restaurant in the article, I’d like to see someone do a *lower carb* interpretation of soul food. Keep the delicious meats and fats but bump up their quality, and add more variety to the vegetables while toning down — but not eliminating — the stuff made from flour and corn meal.
The southern blacks learned the cuisine here and everyone else brought it here.
My direct bloodline ancestors showed up here in 1630 plus I’m related to a dozen of the Pilgrims that showed up on the Mayflower. We’ve got ancestors in every war since the Indian wars. Most of the people in this Country are “appropriating” from me if that’s how this is gonna go.
And if the argument is that we appropriated from the natives, well then I guess we all need to go back to pounding weapons from rocks and making pottery.
The scary part is that some people think we should do that anyway due to climate change.
Incredible. So eating healthy is now racist.
THAT’s my takeaway. The author is an ignoramus.
They do cite, however, the guy cooking “soul food” as a healthy takeaway, but if cultural bigotry begets impaired health, what are a black’s choices?
Is there anything which does NOT screw the Blacks?
And why is the ghetto a “food desert”? Might it have something to do with the habit of burning down the stores, looting them and stealing them blind?
No, of course not!
Thanks Rick for posting the whole article. It was an interesting read.
My folks and Grandmother had a Victory Garden in our back yard when I was a pre-schooler. ...I grew up eating everything!
Many various fruit trees, different berries, greens, beans, carrots, okra, radishes, potatoes, etc. They enhanced the cheap cuts of meat that were used to make delicious meals, even through the years of schooling until I went into the Navy.
Love soul food just as much as I enjoy a Caesar salad, loaded baked potato and a large juicy steak!
Did anyone decide to look and see if there was a real point to the article? I got distracted......
She doesn't want help. She wants an enabler.
I was getting a headlight replaced the other day and while waiting a guy who was an obvious snowflake sat near me in the waiting room and pulled out a very fancy ziplock bag full of almonds and started chomping them. My stomach ached just thinking about it. I cannot eat almonds, it’s a very painful experience.
America and by extension White America saved the world 3 times in a century so we have some kind of licensing rights to all the worlds food.
