'White Privilege’? Portland Principal Claims PB&J Sandwiches Could Hold Racist Connotations
A school administrator in Portland, Oregon is saying that a peanut butter & jelly sandwich is racist
I swear that some of these over-educated people are nuts.
Meh...seems like a reasonable deal. At least, if i understand it correctly to be that she just wants teachers to consider being more inclusive of other cultures when speaking with metaphors.

Dude! You just gave me an Idea! the Tuna Butter Torta! Tuna and PB &J served on a torta. With extra mayonnaise Oh yeah! Either it will be magnificent because it covers all racist sandwiches, or it will be the latest diet craze because it will force you to puke every time you eat one.
Seriously though this principal is an idiot. I hope he's reading this right now. YOu sir are a moron and have no place educating people. YOu probably tell kids the sky's blue because of the ocean or something equally as stupid. No wonder our current generation of kids are so under educated. It's because dips like you are teaching them.
“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?,” she said. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”..............................
