Does anyone else get the impression that liberals are perpetually offended about everything?

Black History month is another way of saying “I Hate Whitey”. And this food fight is proof.

So, does that mean a Columbus Day meal of spaghetti and meatballs is racist?

Well he was sponsored by Spain, so you would have to include tacos and salsa.

Seeing that it is a DEEP BLUE state, AND that the teachers unions and educators are most likely all very liberal types, where is the ‘racism’ and ‘stereotyping’ coming from? Hmmmmmmm?......................

In earlier days that was a southern meal. In my growing up years, there was always cornbread for lunch and dinner and fried chicken was eaten frequently. We called meals breakfast, dinner, and supper.

Elizabeth Williams of the Contra Costa County Equal Opportunity Commission and a member of the NAACP had a different view. “What is the big deal?” Williams said. “Historically and even now, we like our chicken and I’m not going to stop eating my fried chicken, nor my cornbread, nor my watermelon.”

“Let’s move on. Let’s be more progressive. Let’s not be so insulted about something so minute,” Williams said.

Good for her. She has the right attitude, at least..............

A side of Uncle Ben’s grits would have caused a meltdown.

I love fried chicken, watermelon and I have cornbread in my lunch box right now. I don’t identify ‘food’ with ethnicity. Food is food, no matter if it’s Tex-Mex, Chinese, Cajun, or Southern, which these foods are...............

Well, they oughta be offended. that is redneck food, not soul food. Go to any Amvets, Moose, American Legion, VFW and you’ll find that is what they serve at their functions. Exception is Maryland, where steamed crabs are served along with cornbread, fried chicken, watermelon.

I’m a white guy who happens to like fried chicken, cornbread, and watermelon. Guess that makes me a racist.
