The worst is when wealthy, powerful Democrats appropriate the plight of every non-wealthy, powerless minority/woman/disabled/lgbtq person to profit in partisan political capital.

Delicious burritos are so much easier to swallow.

This "success" at shutting down a business will encourage others to do the same.

I live in the Portland area. It's not getting "nicer" or even better here.


I had an office there in about 88 / 89 for about a year and a half. It was as bizarre as San Francisco even back then. There were entire area's of the city and surrounding urban area that the police would only respond to life and death calls and buses stopped running to around that time.

Portland has been messed up for a long, long time. Then it was Skinheads, a violent Lesbian gang, Crips, Blooods and probably a dozen other groups including the ever present Anarchists. Nobody in their right mind would go downtown late at night.

Not to mention the cops and the municipal government were likely among the most corrupt around.

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?

Holy crap. There is a Mexican restaurant in Portland that refuses to serve burritos calling them gringo food. Not authentic Mexican food. You know they DO serve? Deep fried grasshoppers.
Oh man. I'm soooooo glad I left Portland. Place was going to crap when I left in 2012. I can't imagine what the place is like now. The mayor humping underaged boys. The streets filled with homeless "kids". Itchy trigger finger cops. Always in the shadow of Seattle. If it weren't for Portland, Oregon would be a red state.

Yeah. No doubt. The hell is this person on about? I know plenty of black people who've never had African food, nonetheless how to cook it. Anjira bread? Foreign concept to 99% of blacks in the US. So, I guess only the Italians and French get to open restaurants?
