Race Card in the Cafeteria -
September 13th, 2012
To some, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a lunch time staple. To a grade school principal in Oregon, a PB&J is racially and culturally offensive.
We know what you’re thinking, “Holy sh*t balls!” This wacky broad has such a poor read on sandwiches she must have had to de-humidify her Hanes before she enjoyed her first six-inch Polish.
The Principal’s argument is this: What if a Somali student at her school doesn’t like sandwiches? Doesn’t offering a PB&J to that student subconsciously invoke “white privilege"? We say anything has got to be better than flies on porridge.
Ms. Gutierrez’s argument seems to suggest if a white kid from the U.S. went to a school in Serbia and was served goulash, he should instead ask for a sandwich. That is not racist, it’s rude.
