But that's what happens when you start reaching for stereotypes.

That a broad stereotype.
Do you know that the people you are describing in such an insidious way were struggling european immigrants from Scottish decent that single handedly fought off the Redcoats when others had failed.
You must have had a bad expeirence with someone from the maby the hills of Appalachia or West Va.
I usually find that people with such demonsterous statements such as yours, say these things thru fears and haven't taken the time to get to know the people they slander .

It's not inherently offensive that they decided to serve this for lunch. Its that they decided this was for black people.edit on 7-2-2014 by duesprimusvictorimmortali because: (no reason given)
This is exactly the point.
The problem is not the food, but saying that those foods are for black people.
It is an IGNORANT stereotype that many people find highly offensive.
I remember once a friend of mine (black guy from Miami) asked me, "hey, why do so many white guys like cheese so much?" I was taken back by it for a second and I looked at my other buddy (a black guy from Tennessee) and smiled. To which he said "don't do it." Haha. So I go, "I dunno man, but why do so many black guys like fried chicken and watermelon?"
Of course I was just teasing him the same way he teased me about cheese, but he didn't find that crap funny AT ALL.
Also, he was from MIAMI. They have an entirely different cuisine!
Whatever. Point is that it is highly offensive to many people. The idiots at the school should have known better.
