Skip to comments.Peanut Butter and Jam sandwiches are now "racist"

Verenice Gutierrez picks up on the subtle language of racism every day.
Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year.
What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches? says Gutierrez, principal at Harvey Scott K-8 School, a diverse school of 500 students in Northeast Portlands Cully neighborhood.

Amazing what the modern unionized school administrators have learned and are now enforcing on the young skulls of mush that parents entrust to their “care.”
Liberal academia. A scurge upon America. If I was raising my kids again, they would not get near a government indoctrination camp EVER. They would go to a real school not run by union socialists and get a GOOD education, even if I had to work two jobs to do it.
This is ridiculous. Ignorance of what foods a culture eats does not come close to being ‘racism’ by any definition.
I guess this definitely rules out a BLT.
I honestly don’t know how much longer I can tolerate these liberal race baiting nut jobs....
this is a Bullsh*t sandwich (now then, is THAT racist!?)
I read the whole article and don’t understand a bit of it.
Liberals can’t wait to get a snapshot of President Romney eating watermelon at a family picnic.
Milk is racist too - more ‘white’ is sold than brown.
If they were smart, the remaining white folks who had kids in that school would yank them faster than Speedy Gonzales.
I’ve always heard of Peanut Butter and Jelly(never have liked it), but never “Peanut Butter and Jam”. Am I just missing something?
I once knew someone that liked to eat Peanut Butter sandwiches with Mayonnaise and bananas. That’s just disgusting, IMO!
Same stuff we have heard for a while now. Supposedly standardized testing can’t be done because certain students don’t understand some of the questions if it has something to do with something they don’t personally experience in their cultcha. *yawN*
What it really means is any potential testing that might prove union teachers aren’t doing their jobs is a threat so.....
Are there exemptions for transgenders, Hispanics, and union workers?
Yeah, I don’t bother with the bread. I just slice the banana into quarters, spread Mirsacle Whip on each quarter and top it with a good sized dolop of peanut butter. Yummy light lunch.
What's the big deal? A torta is a sandwich--and I've eaten many a pita bread sandwich.
Mick sang about it in Some Girls
So I guess my Wetback and MuzzieSlime sandwiches would be out of the question?
I've never understood the difference between jelly and jam with one exception--napalm is a form of jelly, and I've never heard it referred to as jam.
What about WHITE STUDENTS, who might not eat sandwiches?
This isn’t education; it is indoctrination. Racist indoctrination.
I think I should commit “Hari Kari” because I happen to have white skin. The guilt is overwhelming. /s
Do I get extra kudos because I drive a Japanese car?
” I read the whole article and dont understand a bit of it.”
No kidding! I kept re-reading it and thought it made no sense at all. And that is sad, given that these people are educating our future decision-makers.
The Czechoslovakian nanny that took care of my daughter had never heard of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. She thought they were pretty cool. Maybe if we introduce these kids to our commonly eaten foods they won’t be so offended. What a moron. I’m so glad I home schooled.
SALT AND PEPPER ARE NEXT.
Then Ketchup and Mustard.
What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches? says Gutierrez
Portland.....What a Turd Hole.....
Well, Stupid, the next time we go to school in Somalia, or Mexico,...Well ask the little kids there...but untill then Shut your stupid Liberal GOB.
Consider "JAM" as a verb, and I think you get the picture.
She's the last person in the world who could possibly teach "critical thinking."
Fine, change "sandwich" to "dirt and stone ground corn".
Then you'll make the organic bloc happy as well as the Aztlan faction.
(Freaking madness, the kids can't spell, count, or tie shoe laces so the "professional educators" are concentrating on "the protocols of Courageous Conversations", "Big hairy audacious, goals", and "white privilege"...that'll guarantee a huge increase in rocket scientists within a semester or two.)
Never saw such a god awful mess as a peanut butter and onion sandwich.
Peanut butter and onion rocks hard!
The turd world bastards will have to pry the PBJ from my cold, dead hands! If they’re going to live here and enjoy the benefits of our civilization, they need to first adapt to and then ultimately adopt our ways. Otherwise, they should really emigrate to the cesspools created by their ancestors and their defective cultures. (I know...it’s a tiny, seemingly insignificant issue, but it’s yet another symptom of the cancer currently eating away at America.) Tolerate them yes, but no more catering to or worring about foreign cultures! All civilizations are NOT equally valid, and yes...even with the embarrassments of the last couple decades, ours was clearly the superior ON EARTH. Let’s worry about Somali and Hispanic culture when Americans are trying to sneak into Somalia or Mexico “for a better life.” Madness reigns in the government schools.
It was a mess.
Napalm is indeed in jelly form, and is used to get yourself out of a jam. “Roger that, they’re in the treeline 200 meters west of the cherry smoke - light them up, please, sir!”
Thanks for the ping!
Can we just start shooting these idiots? They are polluting our gene pool...well the non-gay ones.
What would we do without people like this principal to save us all from the insensitivity of the PB&J sandwich? Why, it is not merely a sandwich, but the true root of all evil. And let’s not even talk about cream cheese and jelly. Or grilled cheese. Or lunchmeat. Or hot dogs and hamburgers. And pizza. There’s too much variety dividing people - we need a Food Equality Amendment. Until every single American is eating the same exact food, we will never understand each other. /Sounds silly but it’s coming next... just watch. ;-)
They keep telling us diversity is a “joy,” but the more diversity we have, the less freedom we seem to have and the more we have to walk on eggshells. I must be missing the “joy” somehow.
What this really means is that they are scrambling to find yet more excuses for low test scores among some minorities.
They have peremptorily ruled out any possibility of
1. low intelligence
2. lack of effort
3. inferior culture that discourages achievement
These ridiculous excuses are used to buttress self-esteem (I’m really smarter than test score indicate.) and encourage a victim mentality (”The man” is keeping me down.). Neither the students nor the teachers have to expend much effort to really get / provide an education.
But most of all, these excuses allow the teachers unions to hire ever more teachers, teachers’ aides, curriculum developers, experts, advisers, policy directors, administrators, and managers of special programs to deal with this. In addition, they get to buy new, non-racist textbooks and get kickbacks from the textbook companies.
Yes. There was a complaint about milk back in the day when the dairy industry had an ad campaign “Every body loves milk”. It was said to be inappropriate, or racist because some African-Americans (or a large number perhaps) have an intolerance to milk or dairy, ergo, EVERY body does not love milk. None of this will end until the rest of us say, NO, just stop this now.
Me neither. At the end of the article, we learn that she's an anchor baby from Texas. You show me a Texan who hasn't eaten a peanut butter and JELLY sandwich. At her age, I'm sure her mama packed her lunch with them so don't even try to sell me that hispanic kids don't eat pb&js.
But how can it be? Wasn’t it George Washington Carver who invented the peanut agricultural science? So how can that be racists?
I'm glad she cleared that up for me; I had been wondering what their priorities were, since it's obvious that "educating students" is way down at the bottom of their list.
Despite that year of work, Oregons Department of Education just last month identified Scott as a focus school, one that performs among the states lowest 15 percent.
Im excited by the fact that were designated a focus school by the state, Gutierrez says. Its an added layer of accountability.
This is akin to Obama's people being "excited" that more & more people are getting food stamps, "because it helps the economy".
Ewww; you're right! They left out the pickles!
I recently discovered peanut butter, bacon, hot dogs. There’s some yum. Sadly, I later discovered it wasn’t an original idea. There are actually restaurants that serve them.
