If anything food should the one thing that brings cultures together.

An Asian can be an expert in french cuisine, an Irishmen might be an expert in Italian cuisine and so forth-Hell a Polynesian works at my local kebab shop but I don't hold it against him because the kebab I ordered was not made by a Greek person, I say thank you and tell him to keep the change.

I'm of Irish heritage and I wouldn't be upset if an Indian restaurant served Irish stew or bangers and mash and I'd be thrilled, and I'd get the chicken Vindaloo as well. Food is the global language of peace.

I think by this time even the blind should be able to see the handwriting on the wall.

Amy and all things that may bring people together must be demonized and destroyed.

This is going too far. As a matter of fact, CNN just reported that a liberal cultural icon was "influenced by" Nigerian culture. They weren't reported as using cultural appropriation.

It only makes sense to share cultures. It is what humans do the best. Without sharing cultures we limit ourselves as humans.

Who the hell are you supposed to pay for making a stupid burrito?


A Mexican, apparently.

If a Mexican happens to make the best burritos in town for an affordable price I'd gladly pay him, you see -- I don't choose where I go based on the race of the owner; I choose where I go based on the quality and cost of the food.

This entire thread would be hilarious if it were a parody....

I haven't read every page but we have a similar type directive from our beloved EU.

You know that champagne can only come from the champagne region of France, otherwise it has to be called "sparkling wine" well they also made it law that cumberland sausages must be made in cumberland, parma ham must come from parma, etc, etc, etc.

The world has gone truly bonkers.

Anybody should sell any damn food they are good at making.

I guess Mexican restaurants will have to stop making burritos since it was not invented in Mexico. Just like pizza is not Italian.

Portland, Ore., has become the epicenter in a growing movement to call out white people who profit off the culinary ideas and dishes swiped from other cultures.

Someone in the City of Roses has even created a Google doc, listing the white-owned restaurants that have appropriated cuisines outside their own culture. For each entry, the document suggests alternative restaurants owned by people of color. One “Appropriative Business” is Voodoo Doughnut, the small doughnut chain accused of profiting off a religion thought to combine African, Catholic and Native American traditions.

Ok in a nut shell, if you are not of the culture the food that you are cooking (a chef), then STOP.

You are stealing from said culture.

One enterprising person has created a "black list" of restaurants to not visit because the people who own the restaurant are white ( I assume) and gives a suggestion of an alternate restaurant owned by a person of color. Cool huh?

The story only talks about white screwing minorities. But would this apply to minorities that cook hamburgers?
Well, until i read the OP, I was thinking no. No chef should cook simple burritos. Leave that to the petty cooks.

The opposite of what America is all about.

Cultural appropriation is an issue... but not with cuisine. Cuisine is a craft, not a fashion statement.
Cultural appropriation is a thing, but is it really a problem? It's dumb that it is a problem. How else would things spread across the world? Damn Asian countries stole American Idol AND the voice! And people better stop celebrating St. Patrick's day unless they are Irish or of Irish descent. I don't care what the feminists say Feminists ewwww Nobody has to live in any way similar to white people just because they live in America. I work with a whole bunch of Mexicans who pretty much prove that. So... one can "appropriate" the dominant culture. If they can, then why can't I? What's wrong with it? Shouldn't it be viewed as a compliment? Especially with food, even burritos. Granted you agreed that cultural appropriation ends with food.

I had sushi for lunch with a colleague and a beautiful Russian lady served us.

I'm not sure how to handle such blatant cultural appropriation. Emotionally it just tore me up, had to take the rest of the day off to clear my mind from such abhorrent racism. I couldn't believe the gall of this Russian lady, serving me sushi. Where does she think she is, Tokyo???

I'm contacting my attorney to put this crap to an end.

Ok if anyone does not know by now or hasn't mentioned it got to sort Mex food out with an already WHITE SPAINISH influence. Then maybe.

The fact that "white chief" cook food from the dark cultures is a complement.


Whos race bait thread is this anyway.
