Was thia an 'insensitive lunch'?

LOL no im serious ..Denver schools apologize for their 'insensitive' lunch menu on the day of celebration for MLK JR..

Fried chicken..collard greens and biscuit..

UMMM MLK JR was a man from the south..

THIS is what some choose to moan about..and demand an apology..STUPIDITY at its best..I think the schools shouldnt of catered to that bs..what do you think?

  • BaisMom, I agree with your first paragraph. I disagree with the second. I am a WHITE PERSON. Southern "culture" is a blend of black & white. Personally, I love fried chicken, any kind of greens, cornbread....oh good Lord, I better quit before I get homesick.

    I think it is ridiculous OP. Since there is a problem with the way the day was celebrated maybe they just shouldn't celebrate next year.....yes, I intended for that to be "smarty pants."

  • NBC studios did something similiar for Black History Month, they apologized after Questlove (drummer of the Roots, Jimmy Fallons band) took a pic and posted it on Twitter..Pic included

  • THIS is what some choose to moan about..


    One person complained and said it was offensive and stereotypical....


    Organizers of Denver’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Marade, a combination march and parade which honors King every January, did not consider the menu inappropriate, considering that King came from a southern background, but said there are other, more meaningful ways of honoring him.

  • good grief! do the italians complain when spaghetti is served because of them? Or OMG tacos during Latin American month or what ever it is called.

    I think people just look for a reason to complain.

  • What is the big deal? This PC crap is getting way out of hand. My white dad would have loved that menu as well.
