this is great. you will all love this.
should be interesting

www.huffingtonpost.com...


Tanisha Gordon doesn’t see what white people love so much about cottage cheese. Or salads, especially when they’re topped with fussy ingredients like candied almonds, pickled carrots or Brussels slaw.


if Mercedes HIlton( or any uber white name) didnt understand what black people love about lets say chitterlings and okra how do you think people would take it?


As a black woman, Gordon battled the perception that most of today’s healthy food is “white people food.”
“A lot of the time, when you go to restaurants now, they have these extravagant salads with all these different ingredients in it, like little walnuts and pickled onions ― like the stuff Panera sells,” Gordon told HuffPost. “For me personally, that’s like a white person’s food. A lot of the mainstream stuff that’s advertised comes across as being for white people.”


i guess i just dont get it.
black people cant eat pickled onions?
should they not?

does it do something to their being if they ingest a pickled onion?

it makes me curious. i am a white guy but when i am in the mood for some black people food i go get it.

every now and again i go get some peurto rican food. oh snap

of course people look at other foods and refer to them as chinese food. we all do that right?
not chinese food in that it is for them and we shouldnt eat it.

so why do black people apparently feel that way about white people food?

and arent we all the same?
if we are all the same then it does not make sense that some people perpetuate us being different over a fancy salad.


Today’s Goop-lacquered definition of healthy eating has made it de rigueur to guzzle $9 bottles of cold-pressed kale juice or chug hydrogen-infused water. In this micro-bubble of fastidiousness, a healthy diet means more than consuming your daily dose of fruits and veggies. It means eating pudding made of chia seeds (yes, the same ones used to make Chia Pets) and sprinkling your açai bowl with goji berries, even if you have no idea what either of those things are.



“You’ve got the dominant culture in the USA being white culture,” black restaurateur Dr. Baruch Ben-Yehudah told HuffPost. “And that white culture has taken the power to define all things good as white, and all things white as good.


maybe this black restaurateur should serve some #ing chia seeds to change perceptions.

this is hilarious

I ate Mexican last night. It was wonderful once I got past his screaming.

And the woman in the Original Post is a dope.

Black people are easily more racist against whites (and white culture) than vice versa.

(generally speaking)

Saw the title “white people food” so thought I’d come in and have a read.

Imagine my disappointment when it WASN’T about cannibalism.

“For a person who needs to re-train their mind and think differently about healthy eating, that’s always gonna be their struggle; getting past, ‘This plate of food is for a white person,’” Gordon said.


i can not imagine feeling like this.

sounds like bull# to me but i guess its possible.

We do not agree much, but s+f. I went to a baptist college. We had church on campus 6 days a week, sunday, we could go off campus.

Went to an AME church. Loved it until the preacher said we have visitors, looked around, me and my girl were the only white faces there.

Accepted with open arms and invited to lunch after the service. You can guess whst was served, but i now eat soul food 3 nights a week.

People need to get past the hate.

I guess it's a more apt descriptor than White Gurl Juice.

There are normal thinking black & white
hue-man and there are abnormal thinking black & white hue-man.

This data is source from the abnormal thinking hue-man...

So in short this theory does not apply to all black or white hue-men. Maybe just the abnormal thinking group.

I have to assume Okra has it's vitamins and minerals, too.


Americans have screwed up feelings about many things. Braised collard greens is not known for being a "white food", but it is packed with nutrition, depending on how hard you cook it.

I'm happy about clean eating, but it is in no way synonymous with being rich and fancy.
All you have to know is: a good diet consists of fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, and nuts and seeds and clean animal products.

If you ever go to the South you'll notice that everyone is obese, moving around on a wheel chair and they all have diabetes.

Good nutrition, and good health sees no ethnicity, religion age or gender.
