School Apologizes for Serving Fried Chicken and Watermelon for Black History Month

Fried Chicken and Watermelon

A California school is under fire for planning to serve fried chicken and watermelon for Black History Month. Black students and parents at Carondelet High School rushed to the media complaining bitterly about the items on the lunch menu at the all-girls school.

According to the outraged students, the watermelon, fried chicken, and cornbread items on the menu are offensive to black people. Why? Because the food is served by white people?

For whatever reason, our people tend to choose the wrong battles and lose focus on the real enemy.

Carondelet bought into the drama. The school immediately removed the items from the lunch menu and apologized for offending the sensitive students and their parents.

“I’d like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members,” Principal Nancy Libby said in an apology letter sent to parents. “Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes.”

Claire Schmidt, a professor at the University of Missouri, attempted to explain the social stigma attached to watermelon and fried chicken.

Schmidt tells NPR.org that chickens had long been a part of Southern diets, but they had particular utility for slaves. They were cheap, easy to feed and a good source of meat.

But then, Schmidt says, came Birth of a Nation.

D.W. Griffith’s seminal and supremely racist 1915 silent movie about the supposedly heroic founding of the Ku Klux Klan was a huge sensation when it debuted. One scene in the three-hor features a group of actors portraying shiftless black elected officials acting rowdy and crudely in a legislative hall. (The message to the audience: These are the dangers of letting blacks vote.) Some of the legislators are shown drinking. Others had their feet kicked up on their desks. And one of them was very ostentatiously eating fried chicken.

“That image really solidified the way white people thought of black people and fried chicken,” Schmidt said.

    Yeah roast their asses. I’m sorry but there is NOTHING educational or of historical significance with this move right here. What in the FUKK is wrong with people?!

    This is apart of major racist propaganda used by the whitey’s to promote extreme prejudice and kept the negroes oppressed.

    Talk about this is a post racial America because we got a black President. Yeah okay then they wanna pull a stunt like this?!

    So, is miss nancy saying this was purely coincidental? Are these items regularly on the menu? Was it presented as a ‘special’ menu for BHM? What was the school’s intent? I thought Cali was supposed to be more ‘enlightened’… :think:

    I’m from the watermelon capital of the worl’, Craig, the worl’. I’ve only met 3 people from my hometown who doesn’t like watermelon and the demographics is about 45/45/10-white/black/hispanic.

    I still haven’t met anyone who doesn’t like fried chicken other than the health factor. They will eat it occasionally though.

    I’ve yet to understand why foods many of us DO eat offend us when people offer it to us?

    I like watermelon. I like chicken. Who gon’ check me boo’z? Don’t be offended at the thought of the school offering your child chicken for lunch in February as a “protest” and then when you pick his a$$ up from school you stop by the .99 cent two piece Tuesday at Popeye’s any fukkin way.

    I’m not ashamed of anything that my ancestor’s did to survive. Even if they felt they had to grin and bear it – out of survival, you do what you have to do.

    I once went out to brunch with a physician friend of mine and when they brought out the fruit tray, I tried a little of everything and specifically noted that the watermelon was very sweet and suggested he try some. THIS mf looked at me with a straight face and in his best South London accent said, “Oh. No thank you. I don’t eat ethnic foods.”

    EXCUSE you? How much more “ethnic” can your a$$ get when you’re from the east side of San Antonio, both of your brothers are in prison. Your mammy has 19 bags of the cheapest blonde weave they had sitting on top of her head, she likely has a beer in the cup holder, a beer in her purse and a doobie tucked into her weave – and I didn’t want to tell you this, but the last time I was at your house, that trick grabbed my d*ck and told me she wanted to see what I was “packin’.” – how DARE you be “anti-ethnic” because you’re dating a white broad and went to medical school.

    I live around white folk and KFC wouldn’t be standing there if they were waiting on the non-existent culture of black folk to keep them in business. In addition to the fact that they sell PLENTY of watermelons at the grocery store and when I go in, I’m likely one of 5 blacks in there!”

    They gave us the leftovers from the pig… but that doesn’t stop you foo foo folk from effin’ up some bacon and pork chops.

    Neither white folk NOR black folk will shame me from doing what I enjoy… and that includes a 3-piece and a peppa and a side of watermelon if it’s sweet.

    Being offended by watermelon and chicken is no different than being offended or ashamed of natural hair and dark skin in my eyes.

    CHICAGO – 26 year old Deron Jacobs was killed by his girlfriend Thursday morning after he allegedly tweeted his “Woman Crush Wednesday” which is known as the popular hashtag “#WCW” or “#WomanCrushWednesday” which trends on twitter every Wednesday.

    Deron Jacobs was stabbed to death by his girlfriend, Rachael Edwardson, age 24, while he was sleep in their apartment they both shared. Friends of the two say that they never showed any external relationship problems and seemed to be very happy with each other. According to a close friend of the couple, there was no violence between the two but just regular arguments that most couples go through.

    When the police arrived at the crime scene, Jacobs was already dead in their bed and laying in a “pool of blood” with his iPhone still in his hand. Edwardson was found by the police in the bathtub face down with her hands behind her back waiting for the police to arrest her. Deron’s best friend since middle school made a public statement saying “I was texting my boy Deron when he sent me the iMessage of the girl he was going to tweet out as his Woman Crush. It was a chick he DM’d frequently and got nudes from but she didn’t even live in our state. I can’t understand why his girl would kill him over posting a photo on twitter.”

    The murder is being investigated for any other potential evidence or information regarding the situation to determine if there are any other motives as to why Edwardson would commit such a crime.

    :eek: Facebook friends of Jacobs also mentioned that Edwardson had self-esteem issues because she is dark skin and slightly overweight and that Jacobs had a post on his Twitter Bio and Facebook status which read, “I Love a Bad A** Red Bone”. :eek:

    If found guilty, Edwardson will be charged with first degree murder and may serve life in prison.

    OTB… the statement “non-existent culture” is indicative of the lack of black COMMUNITY where I lived. Not an actual lack of culture in black folk.

    And, I don’t particularly care what “they” choose. That’s not really of interest to me. I still say that WE have to stop giving folk so much power over us. If you like Chicken, how can you be embarrassed or offended by it? Trust me, THEY eat chicken and watermelon as well… I just wonder how we let THEIR decision to find one MORE insignificant thing to cause US issues has trickled down.

    During Hispanic heritage month – I’ve yet to find a Mexican, Puerto Rican, etc offended at the tacos, fajitas, spanish rice, etc they have in the cafeteria.

    If we eat “soul food” and they offer it to us – either you’ll eat it, or you won’t.

To be honest I am more concerned about that Zimmerman pig staging a celebrity boxing match. In my heart I can only hold but so much disgust and contempt at one time :-(

    I wouldn’t mind having some fried chicken and watermelon at this very moment. Beans and salad, for me, until payday. :o(

    Richer people always seem to get away with longer times to do wrong.

    ____________

    They do. That’s because they allow the infraction to go for several reports (years) to have a stronger case so they can demonstrate a “pattern.”

    That also allows them to charge more interest and penalties.

    It’s a calculated risk beause the person could die or they could lose their income ability (not be a star anymore). That’s why they hit so many of these older stars and “has-beens” after so many years. They beeeeeeen waiting to hit them and they figure they can’t wait any longer.

    You can’t declare taxes in bankruptcy either… so yeah, you goin pay it one way or another.

    During Hispanic heritage month – I’ve yet to find a Mexican, Puerto Rican, etc offended at the tacos, fajitas, spanish rice, etc they have in the cafeteria.
    If we eat “soul food” and they offer it to us – either you’ll eat it, or you won’t.

    I honestly had no idea that fried chicken and watermelon was specific to a group of people and/or nationality the way tacos, fajitas, and Spanish rice is… :shrugs:

    If you knew your Black History you would know that yes, it is STILL offensive.
