This is the menu that caused all sorts of angst and hurt feelings recently at Wright State University in Fairborn, Ohio because… MANUFACTURED, MISAPPROPRIATED OUTRAGE, Y’ALL!
Apparently the folks in food service at Wright State thought serving authentic soul food would be a nice way to honor black students and guests (daughters of famous civil rights leaders) one day during Black History Month. Think again.
Clearly serving fried chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens and corn bread is tantamount to saying the N-word. You know, black people are allowed to do it, but it’s racially offensive and degrading if anyone else does it. I’m certainly not advocating use of the N-word. In fact, I find it offensive when anyone, including African Americans, use it. I’m simply illustrating this as another case of liberal PC double standardization run amuck.
