I just hope that one day folks up north can do the same as the south . We , for the most part , get along just fine with everyone else
Perhaps they should learn my Grandma's favorite sayin
"The more you stir sh** , the more it stinks. Now hush"

Don't give an Irish guy a potato.


LOL...that's funny...I actually just made potato soup for my Father and Uncle as a nod to their Irish heritage.

Is it possible he actually did choose a watermelon because he thought his mostly black co-workers would like watermelon ? Is it racist to choose a gift based on the heritage of the people you're giving the gift too ? How about bringing a pineapple to Hawaiians, avocado's to Mexicans , etc. ?

Isn't part of the fun to eat foods associated with different races and cultures? IDK, I feel bad for the guy...

So if his fellow firefighter was bleeding to death should he refuse to use White gloves to apply pressure?
If the guys in his company are so touchy he's better off not working with a bunch of jerks.
My family devours watermelon, does that mean I have a genetic secret in my history?
I can't believe the world today.
It's like stepping in to a Salvador Dali painting.


My dad worked everyday with another white guy for some years, and then dude got a heart transplant from a black woman. I dont know that he didnt like watermelon beforehand, but after the transplant he started loving to devour the stuff. It was a serious before and after effect.

True story.

Ironically, the people who were offended by this are the true racists. Let that sink in.

It's almost like blacks think whites don't ever eat watermelon or something.


i think some are more consumed with their own color than most white people.

color sensitivety is the new out of control epidemic.

Since we're on the topic, if anyone is wondering where this sterotype originates, well watermelons are a group of melon exclusively from Africa.
en.wikipedia.org...

So there's that.

Lysergic pointed out dont give an Irish a potato, although a difference is although the Irish became famous for potatoes it along with tomatoes & peppers are a New World crop.

Another way to look at this is, it would be outrageous to offer a person from India a bowl of your curry. Wait, scratch that, SJW's say only proper Indian's should even be allowed to cook the stuff.

That's true.

You can't win for losing.

If you don't have anything to do with the culture and you eat it's food, you get in trouble for cultural appropriation.

If you bring food to people of that culture as a tribute and offering to them, you get in trouble for being racist.

And the people at the top who allowed this to go this far are the racists as well, and stupid from a legal aspect.

The whole 'cultural appropriation' crowd just infuriates me.

As someone who has traveled to many parts of the world, marinating in other cultures is something I've enjoyed the most in my life.

Sick what some people believe now.

Whites aren't allowed to be consumed by our own color to that degree. If anyone even talks about it, the outcry of white supremacy is deafening. If we don't talk about it, the outcry of white supremacy is deafening.

YEP!


And all of that is what they call being "anti-racist".

Every time I see a liberal type use the term "anti-racist" I want to take a claw hammer to my big toe, because its the most BS hypocritical blah that is even possible. A total sham dripping in self-delusion (self-deception), but wait there's more as from there they wield it as a battering ram of obtuse demagoguery.
