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.
The Leftist MSM , otherwise known as the Obama/Democrat media complex is in a tizzy following Giuliani’s comments that Obama does not love America.
Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani was at a private fundraiser for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker when he said the following, “When I hear the President speak I don’t believe that he expresses the love of America as much as he does criticism of America.” Of course the LEFT, the MSM and Democrats are aghast at such comments. REALLY? I know, how dare anyone question anything to do with Barack Obama, the Obamamessiah. They must be racist. Does the truth hurt, Barack Obama was not brought up the same as most people with a love of country.
“I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the President loves America. He doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.”
Honestly, who would not question someone who is president who continually feels the need to apologize for America? A president of the United States who cannot utter the words “radical Islam” or admit that radical Islam is at war with the United States? Instead, Obama tells us that we have to get off our high horses because of the Crusades that took place centuries ago and said that terrorists have “legitimate” concerns. WHAT? Sorry folks, had Jimmy Carter made such comments in the late 1970′s in dealing with Iran, had JFK made such comments regarding the Soviet Union or had FDR made comments like this regarding the Nazi’s, Italy or Imperial Japan during WWII, they all would have been rode out of office on a rail and called traitors, let alone been questioned about their love of America.
Look for the LEFT and the MSM to run with this as a news distraction and running cover for Obama rather than report on the domestic and foreign disasters that are currently taking place. CNN has already called Rudy’s comments ugly and divisive. Isn’t that rich … in that the former NYC mayor was talking about the most divisive president ever!
Rudy Guilliani went on Fox & Friends to explain what he meant by his comments, instead of having the Obama propaganda media doing it for him. Guilliani said that he was not questioning Obama’s patriotism, he was questioning Obama’s rhetoric in that you rarely ever hear him talk of America in glowing fashion like former presidents Ronald Regan or even Bill Clinton did. However, what you do hear from Obama at every turn is criticism of America. Sorry, but Guiliani is correct in his interpretation. Barack Obama does not talk about “American exceptionalism”. Obama does not talk about America being “a shiny city on the hill”. Obama cut his teeth being a community organizer, which by definition means that he is a community agitator who is against what exists and looks for change.
Probably what Guilliani really meant to say is not that he does not love America, but as president he does not express his love of America enough, but instead he talks of the criticism of it instead. Who honesty can say that Obama has been a cheerleader for America? His past and upbringing would prevent that from happening. Obama in his heart thinks America is a western colonialist country responsible for evils around the world and still holds slavery against the United States, even though a black president has been elected.
Like it or not, Rudy Giuliani spoke what many believe and all too many have been afraid to say. Thus the reason why Democrats are up in arms and most cowardice Republicans are too Lilly-livered and gutless to stand up and say so.
Rudy Giuliani Discusses what he meant regarding Obama not Loving America
Obama Spox Josh Earnest Gets Hammered by Ed Henry Over 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians Hehaedsed by ISIS as Compared to 3 Muslims Killed in NC
THE DOUBLE STANDARD RELIGIOUS LABELING OF THE BARACK OBAMA ADMINISTRATION …
Obama spokesperson Josh Earnest to the bait, hook, line and sinker as Ed Henry caught him in an obvious White House double standard like a large mouth bass. Watch the VIDEO below and see the exchange between Ernst and Henry as you are witness to the Obama White House not naming the 21 Egyptians beheaded by ISIS as Coptic Christians; however, the three individuals murdered in North Carolina were labeled Muslims. It gets even better, Ernest is forced to say that the NC murder is still under investigation and it is not known whether their faith had anything to to with their death. However, make no mistake about it, 21 Egyptians were marched along a beach in Libya and had their throats slit because they were Christians.
WELCOME TO THE RELIGIOUS DOUBLE STANDARD OF BARACK OBAMA.
Isn’t it remarkable that Obama would once again interject himself into a crime investigation and make the assumption that the people were killed because of their faith. Sadly, it almost seems like he is hoping that was the case so that he can criticize we Crusaders.
On Wednesday during the press briefing, Henry followed, “Why did you not say 21 Christians were killed?”
Earnest responded, “I can’t account for that specific line of the statement.”
“But we’ve been clear that we condemn this murder. The president was clear in the op-ed that was publish today and on a variety of occasions I think I’ve been pretty clear here,” Earnest said. “We’ve been pretty clear here that we condemn this outrageous killing of these Egyptian citizens because of their Christian faith.”
Henry went on to question Earnest about why the White House “invoked faith” when three Muslim students were killed in North Carolina, but not when Islamic State terrorists beheaded 21 Coptic Christians. Local authorities in the North Carolina slayings believe that the deadly incident was the result of a long-running parking dispute, not religion, USA Today reports.
In his response, Earnest said the president believes no one should be targeted based on their faith. He didn’t answer Henry’s question directly regarding why faith was included in one statement and not the other.
Code Pink Chants Arrest Kissinger for War Crimes at Senate Armed Services Committee: Sen John McCain (R-AZ) Tells Them “Get Out of Here You Low-life Scum”
Finally, Code Pink called out for what they truly are … ‘Low-Life Scum.”
Yesterday’s Senate Armed Services Committee hearing with former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, and George Shultz. was interrupted by protesters from “Code Pink”. The protesters wanted to arrest the 91 year old, former Secretary of State for War crime. Finally, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) had enough and lashed out at the protesters disrupting the hearing and called them “low-life scum.” McCain apologized to Dr. Henry Kissinger for the protesters actions to a man who served his country with the greatest distinction.
I’ve been a member of this committee for many years, and I have never seen anything as disgraceful and outrageous and despicable as the last demonstration that just took place. You know, you’re going to have to shut up, or I’m going to have you arrested. If we can’t get the Capital Hill Police in here immediately. Get out of here, you low-life scum.
The niceties of Washington went out the window Thursday when protesters disrupted a hearing with Henry Kissinger — and Sen. John McCain went ballistic.
“Get out of here you low-life scum,” proclaimed the Arizona Republican.
The demonstrators were at the Senate Armed Services Committee to go after Kissinger.
“Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes!” they screamed, some carrying signs spelling out their hatred of the former secretary of state.
McCain quickly called over Capitol police officers to “instill order.”
“You’re going to have to shut up or I’m going to have you arrested,” McCain told the demonstrators after they disrupted his press conference.
Full Video below, protest starts at the beginning of the video
CSPAN – Former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, and George Shultz testified at a a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing
UPDATE I: Code Pink Tries to Arrest 91-Year-Old Kissinger for ‘War Crimes,’ Get Smacked Down by 94-Year-Old George Shultz.
Later, when Kissinger began his opening statement, more protesters popped up in the room, screaming about Vietnam and rattling off his “war crimes.”
“Vietnam! From 1969 to 1973, Kissinger, working for Richard Nixon, oversaw the slaughter in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, that led to the deaths of millions — millions of people. Many thousands more died from the effects of massive doses of agent orange and from unexploded bombs that covered the countryside!” a protester shouted. “Chile! Henry Kissinger was one of the principle architects of the coup in Chile on September 11th, 1973…”
Shultz then stood up to verbally battle the protesters, saying, “I salute Henry Kissinger for his many contributions to peace and security.” That led to a standing ovation from the committee members and audience that drowned out Code Pink.
Comedian Jay Leno Says Hillary Clinton Seems Very Slow and Has Lost Her Fire on ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher
HILLARY CLINTON HAS LOST THE FIRE …
LEFTY comedian Jay Leno stated on HBO’s ‘Real Time’ with Bill Maher, I don’t see the fire and she seems to be very slow making reference to Hillary Clinton. Leno than asked what was the age between Hillary and Elizabeth Warren, 15 years? Nope, 18 months. Isn’t it interesting that it is the LEFT, not the RIGHT that is making Hillary’s age an issue. Trust me, Republicans have enough material to go after the Democratic presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016. The GOP does not need to reference her age, all they need to do is remind Americans of her miserable record and her foreign policy forever linked to Obama. How did that Hillary Russian reset turn out or Benghazi. In the end, can anyone even name one of her accomplishments, come one anyone? But has Ms. Clinton would say, “what different does it make?”
Since most of these attacks come from the LEFT, it seems like this is their way to sabotage Hillary’s run, even though she is way out ahead in the polls because of same recognition. Leno’s comments sounds an awful lot like the meme of Hillary does not have that new car smell and and Barack Obama making the reference that the American people, “you know, they’re going to want that new car smell” and “one that doesn’t have as much mileage as me.”
Comedian Jay Leno says he likes presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, but she just seems so old.
Speaking of Clinton on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” Friday, Leno commented, “I don’t see the fire.”
“Her and Elizabeth Warren are almost the same age,” Leno said, comparing Hillary to the Massachusetts senator beloved by the left wing of the Democratic Party. “And I see Elizabeth Warren come out — ‘boom’ — throwing punches. ‘Boom, boom, boom, boom.’”
“And I like her,” Leno continued, speaking of Hillary. “But she seems to be sort of, she seems very slow and very — I don’t see that fire, you know, that fire that I used to see, that I see in Elizabeth Warren. Because I say to people, ‘how much younger is Elizabeth Warren than Hillary?’ And people go, ‘oh, 15 years.’ No! 18 months.”
Legal Insurrection nails the 2016 Democrat Dilemma, Hillary Clinton “very old, slow” and lacking that new car smell, while Elizabeth Warren is unelectable.
Barack Obama Chief Strategist David Axelrod Says Hillary Clinton ‘Wasn’t a Very Good Candidate’ in 2007
BARACK OBAMA POLITICAL STRATEGIST SAYS HILLARY CLINTON WAS NOT A GOOD CANDIDATE IN 2007 …
David Axelrod, Barack Obama chief strategist during his first run for president, said that Hillary Clinton “was not a very good candidate” in 2007 during the Democratic presidential nomination. Some one seems to be poking the bear. This is one of the few times I might actually agree with Axelrod. Obama’s top strategist is saying that because Hillary had a sense of entitlement and was the sure bet to win the Democrat nomination for president in 2007, she made no effort to campaign or tell people why she should be president.
So what has changed now, but what difference does it make?
David Axelrod on Thursday jabbed at Hillary Clinton, saying that she wasn’t a very strong candidate during the first part of her campaign for the 2008 presidential nomination.
The chief strategist for Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign said that Clinton, who lost to Obama in the Democratic primary that year, was too cautious during the early stages, when she was considered the prohibitive favorite.
Axelrod also said that Clinton failed to provide a convincing rationale for her candidacy in her unsuccessful bid, echoing a criticism he made in November. “In 2007, the mistake they made was they allowed the candidacy to get out ahead of the rationale for it,” he said of Clinton’s team.
“It wasn’t clear what the campaign was about. And I think campaigns have to be about something,” Axelrod added.
Axelrod stated, Clinton failed to provide a convincing rationale for her candidacy in her unsuccessful bid. Flash-forward to 2015, what has changed for Hillary Clinton? Why should she be any better candidate now? Once again it seems that the powers that be want to coronate Hillary Clinton the Democrat nominee for the 2016 presidential elections. Recent polls show that Hillary is far and away the Democrat party front-runner. But will that be her undoing like in 2007? Or will it be all the political baggage? Or will it be that the Democrat LEFT is even further left than Hillary?
Liberal Democrat Howard Dean Says Islam Not to Blame for Charlie Hebdo Terror Aattack … “I Stopped Calling these People Muslim Terrorists” … “They’re about as Muslim as I Am.”
Does the “D” in Democrat stand for denial or just plain dumb?
WOW, just wow … Former Democrat Governor of Vermont appeared Wednesday on MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ to espouse his brilliance, knowledge and clueless comments following the Islamic terrorist attack that left 12 dead in the attack of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. Dean dismissed the idea that Islam was to blame for the attack. Dean stated, “I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists,” and ”They’re about as Muslim as I am.” He also said he does not believe ISIS is an “Islamic cult” WHAT?
Vermont Democrat Howard Dean appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday with a message for anyone who dares call the Paris shooters that attacked satire magazine Charlie Hebdo “Muslim terrorists.”
“I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists,” he said. “They’re about as Muslim as I am.”
In comments that are sure to make waves around the Internet, Dean added that ISIS (the so-called “Islamic State”) were not members of the religion either, but instead a “cult,” distinguishing “not an Islamic cult.”
Liberalism kills. This is the mindset of the LEFT when it comes to dealing with terrorism. Just imagine America, this man was one scream away from winning the Democrat nomination to be president. A note to Howie Dean, the “I” in ISIS stands for Islam.
Bill O’Reilly on the Factor could not have said it any better with regards to the riff between the NYPD officers and progressive, liberal NYC Mayor Bill de Blazio. O’Reilly blasted de Blasio’s actions and applauded the police officers turning of their back on the mayor in disrespect. O’Reilly said, “there comes a point in time where ideology becomes so damaging to society that it has to be stopped. Mayor de Blasio is as left-wing as they come.”
OReilly says de Blasio has reached the point of no return, HE MUST GO!!!
MUST WATCH VIDEO
But O’Reilly was especially angry with NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for speaking of “injustice among his own police officers” and essentially “spitting in the face of his own police department.” O’Reilly had absolutely no problem with cops turning their backs to de Blasio at a funeral for one of their own, because they had no call to directly show the mayor any respect at the service.
Former Empire state governor Mario Cuomo dead at 82 …
Mario Cuomo, the former governor of New York from 1983 through 1994 has passed away at the age of 82 from heart failure. Cuomo passed away at 5:15 pm of heart failure, surrounded by family in his Manhattan apartment as his son, Gov. Andrew Cuomo, was in Buffalo delivering his second inaugural address of the day. Mario Cuomo was most known for his July 1984 keynote speech at the Democratic National Convention where he offered a rebuttal of President Ronald Reagan’s vision of America as a “shining city on a hill.” They have been spewing division for quite some time.
Former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, the liberal son of Italian immigrants and a gifted orator whose talents brought him national stature, died Thursday. He was 82.
Cuomo died in New York of natural causes due to heart failure shortly after his eldest son, Andrew, was sworn in for a second term as New York governor, the office his father had previously held for eleven years. The elder Cuomo had been hospitalized in November for a heart condition, the day after his son won re-election.
“He is in the heart and mind of every person who is here,” Andrew Cuomo said in his inaugural address Thursday. “He is here and he is here, and his inspiration and his legacy and his experience is what has brought this state to this point. So let’s give him a round of applause.”
In a statement, President Barack Obama called Cuomo “a determined champion of progressive values, and an unflinching voice for tolerance, inclusiveness, fairness, dignity, and opportunity.
Mario Matthew Cuomo was born June 15, 1932, in Queens, the third and final child of immigrants from a small village near Naples, Italy. His parents, Andrea and Immaculata Cuomo, owned a grocery store in South Jamaica during the Depression.
Cuomo became a product of the borough’s Catholic schools and a strong athlete: He excelled in baseball and basketball.
A center fielder, Cuomo signed a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates organization when he was 19. He was hitting .244 with one homer in 81 games in the Georgia-Florida League when he was beaned by a fastball. He was blinded for a week and never played professionally again.
He went home and attended St. John’s University and then its law school, where he tied for first in his graduating class. In 1952 he married St. John’s student Matilda Raffa, a union that lasted 62 years until his death.
Hmm, you mean they don’t consider him a “Mafioso” anymore?
“It was Mario Cuomo’s great gift and our good fortune that he was both a sterling orator and a passionate public servant,” they said. “His life was a blessing.”
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson Lets 18 Year Old Devon Coley Out of Jail without Bail After Posting Online Threats to Shoot Cops (Update: Judge Releases Travis Maye Without Bail After Punching Cop)
So this is the New York City’s judicial response following two police officers being killed and the endless death threats, cowardice appeasement?
Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson let 18 year old Devon Coley waltz free without a care in the world after he was arrested for making terrorist threats. The judge ignored prosecutors requests to keep Coley behind bars as she let the thug go free without bail. UNBELIEVABLE. Devon Coley posted online threats to gun down cops just hours after the shooting deaths of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. Coley is believed to be a member of the of the ATC/180HII Crew gang and is awaiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession.
The judge conceded that the posts were “stupid” and an “incredible inflammatory thing to do right now,” but added, “I think that for me to set bail because of the current climate — it would be a misuse of bail.”
WHAT!!! I GUESS THIS IS WHAT JUSTICE IS SUPPOSED TO LIKE LIKE IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY WHEN A THUG COMMITS A CRIME AGAINST THE POLICE?
Coley posted on Facebook a disturbing image of a gunman blasting away at a patrol car,
with the phrase “73Nextt” — a reference to the 73rd Precinct, which covers his Brownsville neighborhood.
A Brooklyn judge cut loose a gang member who had posted online threats to gun down cops in the hours after two NYPD officers were executed in their patrol car — ignoring prosecutors’ pleas to keep him behind bars, The Post has learned.
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson let Devon Coley, 18, waltz free without bail despite the fact that he faces seven years behind bars on charges he made a terroristic threat — complete with an image of a killer shooting cops in their car — and is awaiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession.
Johnson’s stunning no-bail decision came just two days after Saturday’s broad-daylight slayings of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu by a gunman bent on avenging the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of police.
At the punks arraignment Monday night, Coley’s court-appointed lawyer painted him as a mere “knucklehead” who didn’t intend to make good on his threat. Forget the fact that the thug is a gang member and waiting trial in two unrelated cases involving assault and gun possession. Yeah right, he is just misunderstood. What the hell has infested the power structure in NYC? Between the Mayor and the judiciary, insane liberal logic appears to appease criminals and attach police authority. Dennis Quirk, head of the state court officers union, said that “She should resign from the bench,” and she is “not fit to be a judge.” Ya think?
Since when did NYC become a catch and release stream for criminal thugs? The same judge has now released another thug without bail after he had been arrested for punching a police officer. Maybe she would like to go for the hat trick after one of these punks kills another police officer.
She keeps turning ’em loose.
A day after freeing a gang member who posted an anti-cop death threat online, a Brooklyn judge ignored the admonishment of a court boss — and sprung a man who allegedly punched a police officer and threatened to kill his colleagues, The Post has learned.
Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson blatantly disregarded an Office of Court Administration boss who said she “should be setting an example to the public that threatening or assaulting police officers isn’t an acceptable thing,” a courthouse source said.
The admonishment came in the wake of Saturday’s execution-style slayings of two NYPD cops as they sat in a patrol car in Brooklyn.
On Tuesday night, Johnson released Travis Maye, 26, without bail following his arrest in a violent melee with cops earlier that day.
According to court records, Maye took swings at cops at Flatbush Avenue and Prospect Place at around 1:35 a.m., socking one officer in the eye and sending him to the hospital.
