Portland school sees racism in peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Examiner ^

In an effort to combat perceived discrimination, one Portland school seems to have gone off the deep end by suggesting peanut butter and jelly sandwiches carry racist connotations, Twitchy reported Monday.

According to the Portland Tribune, Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School, "picks up on the subtle language of racism" on a daily basis.

“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.”

This is actually kind of an old story. I remember when Breitbart covered it, it was hilarious and so easily mocked.

I even parodied it on me blog which I posted here... but I don’t have a link

The principal is a total nut ball and not even in touch with her hispanic self. El Salvador’s favorite dish is a rice and bean sandwich! They make them on white bread ~ most of the people there are actually considered indians, or mostly indian.

When will we get to: “Speaking English is racist because others may not understand the langauge and feel as if you are talking about them.”

“Last Wednesday, the first day of the school year for staff, for example, the first item of business for teachers at Scott School was to have a Courageous Conversation — to examine a news article and discuss the ‘white privilege’ it conveys,” the Tribune added.

“One commenter at the Tribune observed that the phrase “as American as apple pie” could also be seen as racist if “people of color don’t eat it.”

If a writer put crap like this in a novel like “1984”, the critics would hammer him (or her) for being stupid.
