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

Posted on 11/26/2012 7:15:43 PM PST by chessplayer

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.

“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.

The proper answer in any situation involving this or like stupidity is as follows...
Cut below the dotted line, print and distribut4. Print on business cards/whatever:


“Racism is the inherent belief in superiority based on race. I don’t THINK I am superior to you because you are of a different race. I KNOW I am superior to you since you have proven yourself to be a F’ing idiot.”

PS: Idiots come in ALL colors.

To people that are consumed by thoughts of racism, everything reminds them of.................racism.

It is a mania, psychosis, paranoia or some sort of mental illness.

So, Ms. Gutierrez, if you visited a school in China, and they served you Chinese food and gave you chopsticks, would you call them a bunch of insensitive racists?

Is the person eating the peanut butter and jelly sandwich white? Then it’s racist. ‘Cause everything white people do, think, say or eat is automatically racist.

Hope that clears things up!

Pour it between your two hands and chew away.

If the sold enchiladas, the school would be lauded for its multicultural approach. White people are considered expendable and what they eat unacceptable. Chocolate covered grasshoppers would get a federal NEA grant.

Probably not. I figured as an older white guy of Norwegian heritage I fit the “Disadvantaged Business” status. But no such luck.

Actually, I like PB&J on buckwheat, but since I'm (mostly) white, I guess that would be racist, too.

"Pan Bimbo" is racist? (Mexican bakery white bread, the equivalent of "Wonder Bread"). So, wait, "white" Bimbo bread is racist/sexist, or something...?

Peanut butter, iirc was invented by a man of color (George Washington Carver), so how is that "racist"?

Jelly, well, that is 'colorful', too.

Will these nitwits quit agonizing over being Americans in America long enough to finish lunch?

and many of those teachers paid someone else to take their final exams as well. That from a thread that was on here yesterday.

Now some of the teachers are padding the school grades to comply with the state standards. Getting dumber and dumber all the time. Schools are just for the head counts and a place to park the kid for the day, nothing more,

Everyone cheats today, it is the NORM. (well NOT everybody, some of us still have self respect and morals left).

I did over do it but I savored every bite.

There are places that know how to prepare it, and there are people who know how to cook it. And when these two things come together, it’s a good thing.
