    and another school fucked it up again.... :cheer:

    A California private school has come under fire for planning a Black History Month celebration that included a menu of fried chicken, watermelon and cornbread.

    The Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, Calif., is apologizing to parents and students for the offensive menu. It’s unclear whose decision it was to hold a lunch consisting of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon. NBC Bay area reported Thursday that students were looking for a way to honor Black History Month.

    "I'd like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members," Carondelet Principal Nancy Libby said in a letter sent to parents. "Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes."
    In a letter to the school community, Libby wrote that watermelon, fried chicken and cornbread will be removed from the lunch menu. She also agreed to hold a diversity assembly for students and faculty at Carondelet High School for Girls.

    Both Libby and the school’s dean declined to talk with NBC Bay Area about the Black History Month lunch menu controversy.
    James Taylor, a professor at the University of San Francisco, said the menu is offensive even if the school had good intentions.
    "Chicken, watermelon, collard greens -- these stereotypes of black Southern culture come from the same place that the N-word comes from," he said. "This is not like, 'this food represents this heroic moment in African-American experience. What is represents is the degredation and the stereotyping of African Americans.

    The funny thing is those stereotypes are true so who cares? I would have loved it if my school put fried chicken and watermelon on the menu.

    I'd think I died and went to heaven if I had a meal like that. Hell, throw in some Barbecue and grape drink and I'll devour that too.

    It would be the same thing if they had Polish History Month and served polish sausage and pierogies. Fuck the liberal PC faggots and it's a private school so they should be able to do whatever they want.

    Yeah, That'd be the same as serving beer and kraut at a German fest.

    A menu chosen by black students ..so where's the offense??

    ..Should the Italian kids get offended when their class has a Pizza Party ?? ..Should Asians get offended when they go to a wedding and people start hurling rice?? .....People STILL hunting for reasons that they should be pissed off at something. Pathetic
