In absolute honesty, it sounds like a really piss-poor excuse for not doing anything about a notoriously unhealthy "diet". Instead of changing
how she looks at food, the idiot in the article is all "Ew, this is better for me, gross. Call it white people food and no touchie!"
It's just a personal anecdote from one neighbor, but I get the feeling the tide is slowly turning and blacks are getting tired of dying early, and
battling serious conditions linked to food habits. There's a mixed girl up the street my kids play with, her dad's black. He was also a Marine, and
even though it's been a while, the man is still ripped, and eats as clean as he can. Most of his back yard is one HUGE veggie garden. The guy isn't
playing around when it comes to healthy eating, I'm positive I'd fall way short on his acceptable meals meter.
One of his sisters had stopped over while I was collecting my kids to bring back home a few days ago, they got into a VERY heated argument over why he
wasn't letting their mother bring any food for Labor Day. "It's going to be soul food, so it's going to be s# food, none of what mama cooks is
healthy and I won't allow it here. If that's what you want to eat, you can eat it in your own home or at hers, not MINE. I'll see you Monday."
The fact that he called Soul Food, which is traditionally considered "black people food", if you will, "s# food" speaks volumes. A huge amount of soul
foods, particularly southern soul foods, are drowning in carbs, fat & salt. They are not healthy by any means.
