Wright State University President Apoligizes for Black History Month Menu Featuring Fried Chicken & Collard Greens
AM I MISSING SOMETHING, IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE A JOKE. POLITICAL CORRECTNESS REACHES A NEW STUPIDITY … FRIED CHICKEN AND COLLARD GREENS ARE AUTHENTIC SOUL FOOD?
Wright State University president David Hopkins and its dining services vendor have apologized for creating a menu for Black History month that included fried chicken and collard greens. HUH? The menu consisted of fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes and cornbread. Okay, I am still missing the problem, was it the fact that potatoes are not ethnic? This is just another example that some people will complain about anything and will forever be a victim, no matter what. Supposedly, Billy Barabino, a senior organizational leadership major from New Jersey and president of the Black Student Union was offended saying the following, “I was really hurt (by the menu). Extremely hurt.” For me, it was a knock in the face for African (and) African- American individuals who have fought for us to be progressive. I was extremely offended by it because it minimizes who we are as people.” Dude, did anyone tell you that this type of food is your heritage? Isn’t that the point of Black History month, to honor the black heritage and culture in America?
A note to Billy Barabino and the rest of the victims, you do realize that fried chicken, hog maw, collard greens, ham hocks, black-eyed peas, okra, turnip greens, cornbread, Hoecake, Hoppin John, fatback and chitlins are all authentic African-American soul food, right? You might want to try some fried catfish, chicken and dumplings or Collar Greens with Ham Hocks. Instead of complaining about being offended, maybe you might want to try them, they are actually good. Amen to the folks over at The Last Tradition, PC Stupidity when Liberals at Wright State University feel Fried Chicken and Collard Greens is offensive cuisine for Black history month.
After a menu featuring fried chicken and collard greens under a photo of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and other African American leaders for Black History Month, the president of Wright State University in Ohio and its dining services vendor have apologized.
The Dayton Daily News reported that images were circulated on social media, calling it offensive and disrespectful.
President David Hopkins wrote in an email of the university’s commitment to diversity and pride at hosting the Phoenix Project and forum featuring daughters of several civil rights leaders. Hopkins said he would find out why a menu sign included chicken, mashed potatoes, collard greens and cornbread under a picture of Martin Luther King Jr. and other famous black figures, according to the Dayton Daily News.
“I apologize to anyone hurt by the display,” Hopkins wrote in an email. “To our credit, the menu was quickly removed. But the larger question remains: Why was it done? I will find out. We will take steps to prevent this kind of behavior occurring in the future.”
Chartwells Higher Education Dining Services released a statement that read, in part:
“Chartwells celebrates many national events on campus and tries to provide authentic and traditional cuisine to reflect each theme. In no way was the promotion associated with Black History Month meant to be insensitive. We could have done a better job putting this in context of a cultural dining experience. We sincerely apologize.”
I am still trying to figure out how this idiot Billy Barabino is extremely hurt and exactly what action do you plan to take? How exactly is having on a menu, that which is ethnic food that blacks have ate in the past and continue to do so offensive and not an effort in diversity? Seriously, does Billy not understand that is his history? Are you telling me that the many times that I have gone to friends houses that are black and we ate fried chicken, collard greens, black-eyed peas, black-eyed peas, fried okra, turnip greens and cornbread, we were being racist? Maybe some one should tell my black friends. I hate to break it to you Billy Barabino but no one of your ancestors in the United States were eating Kapenta with sadza and Namibian venison.
I guess Billy doesn’t get too much soul food in Jersey.
I can’t wait until the Irish complain that they are offended and extremely hurt on St. Patrick’s Day when when the food vender serve corned-beef and cabbage, boxty, and Shepherd’s Pie.
Or in March during Greek-American Heritage Month when the Greek students conduct boycotts and “no justice, no peace” protests in the cafeteria when they serve Moussaka, Baklava, Tzatziki and Gyros.
And in May during Asian Pacific American History Month don’t even think about serving rice.
Whoopi Goldberg & Rosie O’Donnell Go At It Against Each Other Over Racism … “YOU ARE A WHITE LADY TELLING ME WHAT IS RACIST!”
WHEN THE VIEW ATTACKS EACH OTHER … OMG, THIS SHOW HAS GONE IN THE TOILET, NO WONDER BARBARA WALTERS JUMPED SHIP.
There is nothing better than two liberals trying to out-liberal each other. Take a good watch and listen to Whoopi and Rosie go at it when it comes to racism in America. However, what might have been the best exchange was when Rosie O’Donnell tried to compare being gay to being black. Whoopi wanted no part of the comparison. Aren’t liberals so tolerant?
“Listen! You are a white lady telling me what is racist to you,” Goldberg said, with O’Donnell shooting back, “I am a gay American.”
“It’s not the same!” Goldberg said, raising her voice.
“You guys need to know what real racism is … Racism is when someone comes up and says (expletive) and die. That’s racist.”
Goldberg added that it was “ignorance,” and not racism, that caused racial profiling, but Cox disagreed, stating that it was caused by “implicit bias.”
“I’ve been black for 60 years,” Goldberg said. “For me, stupidity, dumb folks who just say dumb stuff because they’re not looking or paying attention to the person they’re talking to, which is why people could walk up to Obama and not look up at him and see that it’s the President.”
i guess it would be astonishing for blacks and gays to hear that even white folks have been profiled, followed in stores and asked to do things as if they were the hired help.
Fox News, The Five: Liberal Bob Beckel Flips his Middle Finger at Jesse Watters in Heated Post Election Discussion Clash on Democrats Playing the Race Card
Keep it classy Bob, keep it classy … Jesse Watters actually nails it.
Bob Beckel, the token liberal host on ‘The Five’ lost his cool and gave Jesse Watters the middle finger as he had no factual comeback to the accusations that Democrats had used the race card during this past midterm election. What is most interesting about the events that took place is that Jesse Watters, more known for his ‘Watters World’ segments on The O’Reilly Factor actually nailed the Democrats use of the race card and race baiting 100%, which is most likely why it hit such a nerve with Bob Beckel.
Watters said, “I think I know why they are doing it. If anything that threatens the Democrat monopoly on the black vote, threatens the entire power structure of the Democrat party. It threatens any ability to get the White House. It threatens any ability to control urban areas. It threatens money, power … they try to scared blacks into not trying to cross the line.”
BINGO!!! When you have a voting block that continually and blindly votes +90% for one party, that political party will do anything to keep that overwhelming majority. Imagine what presidential races would be like if blacks voted only 60 to 70% for Democrats?
The panel was discussing Democrats’ use of the “race card” against Republicans before and after the midterm elections when Watters argued, “Anything that threatens the Democrat monopoly on the black vote, threatens the entire power structure of the Democrat party.”
“Oh, come on,” Beckel responded in a frustrated tone.
Later in the segment, Beckel claimed the examples cited during the show were not representative of the Democratic party as a whole.
“Were there any white Democrats denouncing their rhetoric?” Watters replied. “I didn’t hear any. So they’re OK with it.”
“I’m denouncing it,” Beckel shot back.
“You’re not a leader,” Watters said.
After that critical comment, Beckel flipped Watters the bird — and the cameras caught it.
UPDATE I: Beckel later apologized during the show for his actions.
Sexist Comments from Outgoing Democrat Senator Tom Harkin … “She is Really Attractive and She Sounds Nice” … “I Don’t Care if She’s as Good looking as Taylor Swift”
WELCOME TO THE DOUBLE STANDARD OF LIBERAL, DEMOCRAT POLITICS … WHAT PARTY HAS THE WAR ON WOMEN?
He said what? As reported at Buzz Feed, Retiring Democratic Iowa Senator Tom Harkin told Iowa voters that they shouldn’t be fooled because Joni Ernst is “really attractive” and “sounds nice.” HUH? The outgoing Harkin made these sexist comments and the crowd actually clapped and cheered. Just curious, how many of the Neanderthals is the crowd are the same people who talk about a GOP war on women? You folks may want to check your knuckles for scrape marks as they appear to be dragging on the ground, including you also, Tom Harkin.
Some folks want to make excuses for Tom Harkin because he is a relic and a dinosaur; however, that does not excuse those in the Democrat supporters in the audience clapping, nor the fact that if Harkin was a Republican the MSM would be making this a front-page October surprise issue to turn the election.
“You know in this Senate race I’ve been watching some of these ads and there’s sort of this sense that [people like] Joni Ernst,” Harkin said. “She is really attractive and she sounds nice, but I got to thinking about that and I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift or as nice as Mr. Rogers, but if she votes like Michele Bachmann, she’s wrong for the state of Iowa.”
But what what else would you expect from a desperate and pathetic political party who finds their Senate control slipping and Republican challenger Joni Ernst surging into the lead for the Senate seat in Iowa. The final Des Moines Register poll had Joni Ernst up by 7.
Wall Street Journal White House correspondent Carol Lee said that Iowa voters are “definitely down” on President Obama and the Democratic Party, creating a distinct advantage for Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst over Democratic incumbent Bruce Braley.
“I talked to a bunch of voters at that event and some of them coming to that event had voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 and had regretted voting for him,” Lee said.
“The voters there are definitely down on the president and really looking for somebody different, and [Ernst] seems to be tapping into some kind of sentiment there and it looks like she’s actually going to wind up winning.”
Lee said outgoing Democratic Senator Tom Harkin’s recent comments warning Iowa voters not to be fooled by Ernst because she is “really attractive” and “sounds nice” may backfire on Tuesday.
“If there’s one thing that any politician, particularly a seasoned one like Harkin should know, you don’t talk about women’s looks in that way,” Lee said.
Imagine, just imagine if a Republican, male Senator said the following, “I don’t care if she’s as good looking as Taylor Swift …” Sen. Harkin, I guess it really was time for you to retire. And speaking of Taylor Swift, she had a comment for you below and your mean, sexist comments.
Tom Harkin and Democrats … “All you are is mean and a liar and pathetic and alone in life and mean and mean and mean and mean!!!!! ALL YOU ARE EVER GOING TO BE IS MEAN!”
Republican Senate candidate Joni Ernst said Monday she was “greatly offended” by Sen. Tom Harkin’s remarks last week that Ernst wasn’t fit to be Iowa’s senator just because she’s “really attractive and she sounds nice.”
Ernst fired back Monday on Fox News and said Harkin would have never made those comments if she were a man.
“I was very offended that Sen. Harkin would say that. I think it’s unfortunate that he and many of their party believe you can’t be a real woman if you’re conservative and you’re female,” Ernst said. “I believe if my name had been John Ernst attached to my resume, Sen. Harkin would not have said those things.”
SARAH PALIN Says of Liberal Haters … “Bless Their Hearts, It Invigorates Me” … “I’m Gonna Bug the Crap Out of Them” … “Hopefully Running for Office Again”
Sarah Palin in hater Libs … “Bless their hearts, it invigorates me, it wants me to get out their and defend the innocent, it makes me want to work so hard for justice” … “I’m Gonna Bug the Crap Out of Them!!!”
During an interview on FOX Business, Stuart Varney asked the following question of Sarah Palin, the answer was vintage Palin: : As you may have heard just a moment ago, I was saying that the hatred level directed against you is absolutely extraordinary and it’s a disgrace. But my question is, has it driven you out of politics, driven you away from standing for public office for good?
Sarah Palin would ask all those liberal haters … How’s that “Hopey-Changey” stuff working out for ya?
“No, bless their hearts, those haters out there. They don’t understand that it invigorates me, it wants me to get out there and defend the innocent. It makes me want to work so hard for justice in this country,” she said. “So hey, the more they are pouring on, the more I’m gonna bug the crap out of them by being out there with the voice, with the message, hopefully running for office in the future too.”
Palin appeared to toy with a presidential run in 2011, even launching a bus tour that was raptly followed by national media. That speculation ultimately ended without a presidential bid, with Palin telling supporters “you don’t need a title to make a difference in this country.”
Ben Affleck gets his “liberal” lunch handed to him by Bill Maher …
Poor Ben Affleck was just a perplexed mess as for once he was not surrounded by individuals who were just there to agree with him in an echo chamber. Affleck was given a lesson into the real war on woman. However, I hardly believe that he thought such a thing would happen with his appearance with Bill Maher. Affleck had a look of disbelief when Maher said, “It is the only religion that acts like the Mafia. They will F*cking kill you if you say the wring thing, draw the wrong picture or write the wrong book.”
It was not too long ago when Maher ripped Charlie Rose a new one and informed him that Islam was not like other religions.
Affleck was noticeably uncomfortable and frustrated throughout the discussion, calling claims that there are widespread problems within the Islamic religion “racist” and “gross.” Maher said liberals should stick up for liberal principles that many in the Muslim faith do not value, such as freedom of speech and equality for women.
Later in the segment, Affleck said the United States has “killed more Muslims” than radical Islamists have killed Americans while asking Maher to lay out his solution.
“I can show you a Pew Poll of Egyptians, they are not outliers in the Muslim world that say like 90 percent of them believe that death is the appropriate response to leaving the religion,” Maher eventually responded. “If 90 percent of Brazilians thought death was the appropriate response to leaving Catholicism, you would think it was a bigger deal.”

SICK … Convicted Cop Killer Mumia Abu-Jamal Gives Graduation Speech via VIDEO at Goddard College in Vermont
What the hell ever happened to the Green mountain state of Vermont, Ethan Allen would be disgusted.
On Sunday, convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal gave a graduation speech to students at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont by video. Unbelievable. Mumia Abu-Jamal is currently serving a life sentence for the 1981 shooting death and murder of Philedapphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. It is actually the second time Abu-Jamal has spoken at graduation, but what would you expect from a liberal arts college in the People’s Republic of Vermont where this cop killer received a degree.
Maureen Faulkner, the widow of Daniel Faulkner, called choosing Abu-Jamal “despicable” and “not appropriate.” The police in Philadelphia held a silent vigil for 25 minutes Sunday to protest Mumia’s speech. As stated by Chief Inspector Anthony Boyle, “We need to demonstrate how ludicrous this is.” Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) urged the Vermont college on Thursday to revoke its invitation to have Mumia Abu-Jamal as a commencement speaker. Michael O’Neil, the president of the Vermont Troopers’ Association also asked Goodard College to rescind Abu-Jamal invitation.
On Sunday, Mumia Abu-Jamal spoke by video to 20 students receiving bachelor degrees Sunday from Goddard College in Plainfield.
He told the graduates to “think about the myriad of problems that beset this land and strive to make it better.”
Abu-Jamal said Goddard reawakened his love of learning and — in his mind — allowed him to leave death row and travel the world.
The decision to allow Abu-Jamal to speak angered police and others in Vermont and Pennsylvania. Abu-Jamal was initially sentenced to death in the killing of Officer Daniel Faulkner but re-sentenced to life in 2012.
Get ready for the LIBERAL double standard to allow a cop killer to speak at a commencement ceremony and call it freedom of speech. In a statement posted on the school’s website, Interim President Bob Kenny said that by selecting Abu-Jamal the students are showing “their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.” REALLY? So this liberal college president celebrates the First Amendment of Freedom of Speech when it serves his radical liberal views, but has an issue with that same First Amendment when it comes to freedom of the Press as the college closed the graduation to the media after claiming it was open. Goddard College also claimed they wanted to protect the student’s privacy. Wat a bunch of gutless cowards, so brave in saying they want a cop killer as their commencement speaker, but don’t want the public to know who they are. And you wonder where gutless, double standard liberals are spawn from.
The ceremony was originally planned for 4 p.m. and media was told it was open to the public.
However, two days ago, college leaders changed the time to 1 p.m. without notifying the media.
They cited security reasons, saying they received threats this past week.
They also wanted to protect the student’s privacy.
Alabama Democrat Candidate For the 3rd Congressional District. J.T. Smith Says … “Actions of Republicans in Congress are Worse than #ISIL”
WHAT A SICK SOB … WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?
J.T. Smith, a Democrat candidate for Alabama’s 3rd Congressional district tweeted the following out on Monday stating that the “actions of Republicans in Congress are worse than #ISIL”. Smith is the Democrat nominee is facing Alabama GOP Rep. Mike Rogers. Smith actually took to Facebook to try and talk his way out of this nonsensical, reprehensible comment. Sorry JT, Iraq War veteran or no vet, you are an ass. ISIS rapes and murders little girls, they behead Americans, they savagely and brutally kill anything in their path and you would make such a comparison to the GOP?
So when Democrats are not calling Republicans racists, they are calling them terrorists instead. UNREAL.
Mr. Smith, an Iraq War veteran who faces Rep. Mike Rogers in November, later took to Facebook to explain his tweet.
“Twitter does not allow for context, but this does,” he said. “I am not saying that the Republican Party is beheading people in the streets, obviously. Here in America, because we are a civilized democracy, we do not use violence against each other as a means of control. The Republicans have used the economy as a means to terrorize the people of this country.”
This should be subtitled, Mr. Smith doesn’t go to Washington.
From The Gateway Pundit, “This followed Virginia Democrat Mike Dickinson‘s tweet yesterday calling on God to infect all NRA members with the Ebola virus.” Honestly, what is wrong with these hateful, unhinged people? Really Sir, you want people to die who you don’t agree with. Oh that liberal tolerance.
Good Grief, Intollerant LEFT at it Again … Say Obama Outhouse Float at 4th of July Parade Was ‘Racist’
IT WAS NOT RACIST!!! DISRESPECTFUL YES, RACIST … NO!!!
Angry Democrats cry racism to a float in a 4th of July parade in Norfolk, NE depicting Barack Obama standing next to an outhouse labeled, “Presidential Library”. Um, how exactly is this racist? But that does not stop the Democrat lunatic fringe is at it again calling anything that may mock President Barack Obama as racist. Norfolk City Councilman Dick Pfeil told the World-Herald that the city “doesn’t condone” the float, but it just shows how out of touch this politician is, one of the parade’s organizers, Rick Konopasek said the outhouse was the most popular float in the parade, and that it earned an “honorable mention” from three judges. Actually, according to the Journal Star, the float got the greatest amount of cheers.
But this is how the LEFT tries to squelch free speech … cry racism. Sorry, this is getting really tired and old. Oh what a shock, people are offended at Obama being mocked. Where were they during the GWB presidency? The outhouse could easily say America, instead of Obama presidential library, as this president has done everything possible to put us in the crapper.
Pic can be seen HERE.
A Fourth of July parade float in Nebraska that showed a dummy standing outside an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library” is drawing cries of racism from local residents and the Nebraska Democratic Party.
The float, in the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk, Neb., was affixed to trailer being towed behind a blue pickup truck. The dummy was clad in overalls, standing by a walker next to the outhouse.
The pickup truck and the float did not identify a sponsor, according to the Omaha World-Herald.
In a statement, the Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen,” according to the World-Herald.
The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.” Really, just curious, how is a float of a president standing next to an outhouse labeled “Presidential Library” racists? Seriously, someone enlighten me. Personally, I am sick of every criticism of the “worst president since WWII” being called racist.
Sorry, but I find this humorous and it is nothing more than political humor. No different than the LEFT ridiculing former Republic President George W. Bush with his presidential library when they stated, why would he need a library, he can’t read. That was kinda funny. Bush even embraced his vocal gaffes by claiming that “English was his second language”. But of course the same people crying foul over anything mocking Obama were laughing gleefully at any form of ridicule of George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and any conservative for that fact. What is actually racist is when any conservative who happens to be black is called an Uncle Tom. Racism is when you say about South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott, “A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy.” Or when a Democrat Congressman blasts Tim Scott for not voting according to the color of his skin … THAT IS RACIST!
“A ventriloquist can always find a good dummy,” Rev. William Barber II said of South Carolina Republican Sen. Tim Scott, according to South Carolina’s The State. “[T]he extreme right wing down here (in South Carolina) finds a black guy to be senator and claims he’s the first black senator since Reconstruction and then he goes to Washington, D.C., and articulates the agenda of the Tea Party.”
From the Political Carnival … If George W. Bush’s name was replaced with Barack Obama, would that be deemed racist?
Hmm, what did the Democrats have to say about the following hate toward GWB? I believe this was a tad bit worse than an outhouse and Obama. But just another example of liberal intolerance and double standard.
More Liberal White Guilt … PC Police Look to Change US Military Helicopter’s Racist Names like Apache, Comanche, Chinook, Lakota, Cheyenne & Kiowa
When will this PC nonsense end … Now PC police going after the Apache helicopter.
How can it possibly be deemed racist to name a protector of America freedom an Apache helicopter? Or is it just more liberal white guilt on behalf of Native Americans? One would think that any group would be honored to be named after something that protects freedom.
Veterans aren’t happy with a recent op-ed by the Washington Post, which charged that the Apache, Comanche, Chinook, Lakota, Cheyenne and Kiowa military vehicles were a “greater symbolic injustice” than the NFL’s Washington Redskins’ name.
“Even if the NFL and Redskins brass come to their senses and rename the team, a greater symbolic injustice would continue to afflict Indians — an injustice perpetuated not by a football club but by our federal government,” Simon Waxman of the Boston Review wrote for the Post on Thursday.
He added that the helicopter names were “propaganda” that needed to end, because Native American life expectancy statistics indicate the “violence is ongoing, even if the guns are silent.”
Readers at the popular military news gathering website Doctrine Man reacted Friday.
“I suspect that the author is less unhappy that our choppers have Indian names, and more unhappy that there is a U.S. military,” wrote Alex Kuhns.
Oh yeah, add in the Black Hawk, named for a leader of the Sauk tribe. Don’t forget there is the Tomahawk, a low-altitude missile, and a drone named for an Indian chief, Gray Eagle and Operation Geronimo was the end of Osama bin Laden. So my first question is Black Hawk, eh? Dies that mean the PC police is going after the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks next? Second, Exactly how is a name like Apache, Comanche, etc racist? I guess these fools will soon be going after Winnebago RV ‘Braves”.
