CONCORD (CBS SF) Officials at an East Bay private school are apologizing after a controversial lunch menu option to celebrate Black History Month. Students at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord wanted to come up with ways to observe the occasion during a lunchtime celebration Friday. But when the school announced a menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, other students and parents became offended...

YUM!! These people are idiots.
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?
At least it’s the shortest month of the year.
Officials are already scratching next month’s Hispanic Heritage Month Taco Cookout.
Well he was sponsored by Spain, so you would have to include tacos and salsa.
What’s to complain about? That sounds like a delicious lunch!
Where's the chitlins,grits,collard greens and possum?
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.
Lets move on. Lets be more progressive. Lets not be so insulted about something so minute, Williams said.
Good for her. She has the right attitude, at least..............
And BLACK eyed peas. Now that would be racist
“Good for her. She has the right attitude, at least.............. “
Yup, just a lonely voice in the wilderness, tho.
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...............
Not to mention Aunt Jemima pancakes, one of my personal favorites.
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.
I love those foods too; so I guess that also makes me a racist.
Is “Four Fried Chickens and a Coke” on the menu?
Probably the best menu that school ever saw.
I was going to serve Spanish Rice.
Can you imagine them adding a BREAKFAST of both Aunt Jemima pancakes and Uncle Ben’s grits? They would have had to fly in Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton to deal with the outcry.
Only in San Francisco would people get offended by a menu like that. Fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon = heaven.
Simple way to fix this. DONT KOW TOW TO THE BLACKS! No matter what you do you will offend them so dont even try to appease them.
Continue to serve the Mystery Meat meals as usual. When THEY whine, say that you DONT want to offend them! They will still be offended by it.
If they cry “REICIS”, tell them to bring their own lunch if they don’t like what is served!
Fried Chicken was Sunday Dinner food that was eaten everywhere; from the big house on the hill to the shotgun cabins.
On my FB, every time somebody posts a “knockout game” article, FB throws up ‘recommended links” to black history month underneath the post.
Does that mean corned beef and cabbage is racist for St. Paddy’s? Aw, man!
This was a no-win situation. If they serve up the fried chicken, corn bread and watermelon, it’s racist, if they don’t serve up anything special, well that is racist too for “dissing” and not honoring black history month.
Time to tell these perpetually offended non-whites (they’re not minorities in California, whites are) to “shove-it”
(great handle, BTW).
WHO?? In California, Columbus Day has been eliminated, replaced by "Native American Day" or MLK Day or Cesar Chavez Day -- forgot which because so many traditional holidays are being either downgraded or outright replaced. Christmas Vacation = Winter Break Lincoln's, Washington's B'days = one day generic President's Day Easter Vacation = Spring Break Columbus Day = eliminated entirely Independence Day = 4th of July, nothing special ever happened that day just fireworks and picnics to celebrate summer. Thanksgiving Day = Native American grievance Day.
Can’t have a “Paddy Wagon” in California any longer b/c it refers to drunken Irish, had to be renamed to honor PC.
You gotta be kidding me. Now food is offensive?
They left out chitlins’.
You just gave them another reason to be offended.
"I just want to say that February is Black History Month. Isn't that nice? The Man gives us February because it's the shortest month of the year! Now, I'm not complaining, but I think we deserve at least a thirty-day month. It's also the coldest month of the year, just in case we wanted to have a parade."
what a bunch of stupid twits.
I’m white and I love that menu. If anything it’s stereotypical of the South more than anything. Hell, they missed the damned collard greens and black-eyed peas or is that African American-eyed peas???
Another PC event.
Personally, I'd much rather have nutria rat than possum. Nutria isn't greasy.
Oh, oh! It goes back to slavery so we can’t have that. Excuse me, but isn’t that the whole idea behind Black History Month? I don’t see any other skin color getting their own special months. All together now, “That’s racist!” The Chinese were put down so how about giving them March for the cherry blossoms. Give the Mexicans the whole month of May instead of one day. Give the natives of Alaska January simply because it’s cold. Give the American Indians, including those down to one drop of native blood (can’t discriminate, ya know) and those who identify (hats off to diversity) as NA the month of November just because it’s easier to remember what with Thanksgiving and turkeys and all. Give the Irish immigrants, ok all white skinned folk, October since Irish potatoes are harvested then. Oh, wait, sorry, can’t have a white guy month. What? All that is racist and not PC? Yeah, well, that takes us back to what gives blacks the right to have their extra special month but no one else can have their own extra special month? Whatever.
BTW, the evil white men were eating chicken, cornbread and watermelon along with collard greens, turnips and sweet potato pie long before any poor black skinned slaves were brought here. Same as they have been around the world since the beginning of mankind. Which also begs the question why blacks get their extra special foods? Ban chickens! Ban corn! Ban melons!
Yes, I do, and I support these demonstrations. Each time, they win a few more people to our side.
Liberals have such a hard time keeping their racism under control you can’t help but laugh at them. Some menu planner on the staff comes up with this blatantly racist (But funny) idea and the administrators are all tripping over themselves to apologize. Then they make all the students and faculty go through remedial “Diversity Training”. That should solve the problem. Maybe they should invite Al Sharpton to come speak at graduation.
I always thought they’d be PO’ed about that, but they don’t seem to care if they get the short end of the months.
What? No Skittles?
