    Ribs, collard greens, and corn bread are a dietary staple of mine

    Nothing is really inherently racist; its all about context. A white sheet isnt "racist" on a bed somewhere. But made into a hood and covering a dude who's dragging two black kids by his trailer hitch, then yes its racist.

    Mom's Soft Touch used to be a soul food restaurant in Philly. A group of black ladies wearing hair nets served you cafeteria style.
    Delicious. They had fried pork chops the size of my head. :pig:

    Okra must be fried to crispy perfection, mushy okra is gross.
    Is that soul food? Not like chitlins.
    Collard greens and cornbread are good, no matter what race you are.
