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 Rev. Jesse Jackson Interjects Himself into the Little League Jackie Robinson West Being Stripped of US Championship … No Justice, No Peace …”Is this Boundaries or Race?”
WITH JESSE JACKSON, ITS NOT ABOUT BASEBALL CARDS, ITS ALWAYS ABOUT THE RACE CARD ...
This should be a learning lesson for kids, instead it has been highjacked by race-bating smear merchants. This should be a lesson to young kids that there are rules and when some one breaks them, there are consequences. Sadly, those that only want to keep black and white against each other have another vehicle to preach their hate. It is predictable as the sun coming up in the east and setting in the West, it is as certain as death and taxes … Jesse Jackson playing the race card.
The Reverend Jesse Jackson cries “no championship, no peace” with regards to the Jackie Robinson West Little League baseball team being striped of their US Championship because of cheating. The Reverend Jackson is upset that the first all-black Little League baseball team US champion has been stripped of their title due to breaking rules. But Jackson says, its not like they broke age rules, it was just ones of boundaries. WHAT!!! Jackson stated, “boundary and residence issues — when parents have dealt with housing difficulties and are trying to find decent schools for their children — can’t really be compared to other cheating, such as lying about their ages.” HUH, why not? What a joke, Jesse Jackson, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the rest of the pathetic and corrupt Chicago politicians want to teach a new group of youth, the Chicago way.
Little League Baseball decision to follow rules is racist
“I was upset to the point of tears this morning,” Jackson said, adding that he already had spoken to some of the parents of the players and was distressed to learn they had heard the news through the media.
Their children already have been harassed over the controversy, Jackson said, and “it’s not like the children are cheating.”
Boundary and residence issues — when parents have dealt with housing difficulties and are trying to find decent schools for their children — can’t really be compared to other cheating, such as lying about their ages.
“There’s nothing these kids have done to have their championship erased,” Jackson said. “I hope the Las Vegas team will have the strength of character not to accept.”
THEN CAME WHAT WE WERE WAITING FOR … JESSE JACKSON PLAYING THE RACE CARD.
Later, Jackson spoke at a press conference with members of the Jackie Robinson West team and Chicago pastor Michael Pfleger, who joined Jackson in telling Little League International to reverse its decision. They had no problem bringing up the issue of race. Jackson asked, “Is this boundaries or race?” while Pfleger (who is white) said, “I definitely believe racism is a part of this.”
At an afternoon press conference, the Rev. Jesse Jackson asked, “Is this about boundaries or race?”
“This decision’s untimely and inappropriate at this time,” Jackson told reporters. “It should not take six months after a team has played a championship game to determine eligibility to play the game in the first place.”
The league’s decision came after teams from Illinois and Nevada complained that Jackie Robinson West’s roster was rigged.
The Rev. Michael Pfleger called the complaints from the Illinois team “mean-spirited” and “personal.”
“When you’re going over to voter registration and going to birth certificates and doing all this time of hunting and a witch hunt that’s been going on for the last number of months, I can’t help but wonder the question if the same thing would have been done with another team from another place, another race,” Pfleger said.
State Attorney Phil Archer Announces Aggravated Assault Charges Won’t Be Filed Against George Zimmerman
ASSAULT CHARGES DROPPED AGAIN …
On Friday, State Attorney Phil Archer, whose jurisdiction includes Brevard and Seminole counties, announced that his office will not pursue aggravated assault charges against George Zimmerman. The often in trouble Zimmerman, since being acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, was arrested on 1/9/15 and booked for aggravated assault and domestic violence with a weapon in Lake Mary, Florida. Zimmerman was accused of throwing a wine bottle at his girlfriend. However, Phil Archer stated that there was been a subsequent recantation by the alleged victim of her initial statement along with “new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further”.
George Zimmerman was arrested, again, this month in the suspected aggravated assault of a girlfriend. And, again, a Florida prosecutor has opted not to press formal charges — after the alleged victim backed off her claims.
State Attorney Phil Archer, whose jurisdiction includes Brevard and Seminole counties, announced Friday that his office won’t file charges against Zimmerman, who first came to the world’s attention for his arrest and eventual acquittal in the 2012 shooting death of African-American teenager Trayvon Martin.
Friday’s announcement relates to the 31-year-old’s arrest in Lake Mary, Florida, on January 9.
“While it clear that the officers had probable cause to arrest Mr. Zimmerman, which was affirmed by the circuit court judge at initial appearances, the subsequent recantation by the (alleged) victim of her initial statement along with new documents provided by the victim and her attorney precludes my office from proceeding further,” Archer said.
The woman has since denied that Zimmerman threw a bottle or that she ever feared him, according to a statement Friday from Lake Mary police.
“She also made it clear that she did not want to proceed with the case,” said police, noting that Lake Mary police Chief Steve Bracknell “concurred with Archer’s decision.” “A lack of eyewitnesses or other corroborating evidence to dispute her version of the incident also contributed to the decision.”
This is the second time that domestic violence charges have been dropped against Zimmerman. Back in 2013, domestic violence charges were dropped against George Zimmerman after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, recanted in an affidavit that Zimmerman pointed a gun at her face.
A NOTE TO GEORGE ZIMMERMAN: GO AWAY!!! GO INTO HIDING, MAYBE TRY THE WITNESS PROTECTION PROGRAM, SOMETHING. OJ SIMPSON USED TO PULL THIS SAME NONSENSE AFTER HE WAS ACQUITTED AND LOOK WHERE HE WOUND UP. TAKE A LESSON, FROM OF ALL PEOPLE CASEY ANTHONY, CONSIDER YOURSELF LUCKY AND REMOVE YOURSELF FROM THE PUBLIC VIEW. CONTINUE TO BE A NARCISSIST AND YOU WILL EVENTUALLY WIND UP IN PRISON.
Is it really Rev. Al Sharpton against the teleprompter or is it that he just can’t read?
From the Washington Free Beacon comes the following best of All Sharpton struggling with the English language. Exactly how does this man have a show on MSNBC? I am not sure which one is my favorite, President Obama holding a “Kolique,” Everybody Loves Ray “Morahno,” “accidental asphema,” or the the massive “manhood” going on in Paris. But perhaps the best is the “use tube” celebrities that Obama met with just just week.
ARE YOU SERIOUS? YOU MEAN REV. AL IS NOT EMBARRASSED JUST A LITTLE?
Just in case you might have missed the previous Al Sharpton vs. the Teleprompter videos, the following are for your viewing entertainment and I mean entertainment. The parent network, NBC, must be so proud. David Brinkley, Chet Huntley, John Chancellor, Garrick Utley and Tim Russert are all collectively rolling over in their graves.

Student at JFK High School Attacks 62 Year Old Teacher for Taking Away the Punks Cell Phone in Paterson, NJ
LET ME GUESS, AL SHARPTON WILL SAY THAT THE TEEN WAS PROVOKED TO TAKE THESE ACTIONS …
A black 16 year old thug student attacked a 62 year old teacher at JFK High School in Paterson, New Jersey after the teacher had taken away his cell phone. The teen was charged with third degree aggravated assault charges. The teen punk was arrested and has been suspended from school. Sadly, instead of any brave souls in the room coming to the aid of the teacher, someone in the classroom recorded the assault, which officials say took place at about 1 pm on Tuesday, and the video has been posted on YouTube. You can actually see some students walking away from the attack saying, “I’m out” and that they didn’t want any part of this. Profiles in bravery.
This is just another example of the sad state of affairs in our inner city schools. The reason why I say “our” is because I have been in JFK High as well as near by East Side High and many of the apartment complexes in this neighborhood back in the day as a result of work. Those that would call others racist for having an educated opinion. The lack of respect that black males teens show for teachers isjust another example of the lack of respect for authority. What else would you call this but a lack of respect for authority? Who man-handles a teacher? Imagine if the white, 62 year old teacher had made any effort to wrestle or fight with the student, let alone defend himself? Sharpton, Jackson and the NAACP would be marching in the streets of Paterson with the mantra, “Black’s cell phones matter” and “Stand up, don’t take my cell phone away”. (Sarcasm intended)
Aggravated assault charges have been filed against a northern New Jersey high school student who allegedly attacked his 62-year-old teacher in a dispute over a cellphone.
The incident occurred Tuesday at John F. Kennedy High School in Paterson, when the teacher allegedly confiscated a phone from a student.
The phone’s owner, another youth identified only as a 16-year-old boy, soon tried to get the phone back.
“He has no respect for anybody. There are rules every where you go.”
The district filed a complaint against the student earlier this week, a spokeswoman said, and Paterson police said they arrested him at his home on Friday.
“We took a statement from the teacher today,” said Capt. Heriberto Rodriguez. “After that, we went out and found the juvenile and arrested him.” The teenager was charged with third-degree aggravated assault, the captain said.
David Cozart, principal of operations at JFK, said the incident happened during a physics class.
He said the teacher apparently confiscated the phone — which belonged to the assailant — from another student. The principal said students are allowed to use cellphones in class for academic purposes, but staff may take the devices and return them at the end of the day if students use them for other reasons.
District officials have not revealed the name of the teacher or student. Peter Tirri, president of the Paterson Education Association, the teachers union, said the teacher has worked in the district since 2003.
“Let me say that this is a very upsetting incident and certainly one that we take seriously as the safety of our students and staff is our top priority,” said Terry Corallo, district spokeswoman.
She said the student while on suspension will receive home instruction and a disciplinary hearing will determine “an appropriate, educational placement” for the rest of the school year.
“I’m disappointed I didn’t see any other kids in the classroom help [the teacher] out,” Tirri said about the events depicted in the short video. “Maybe they were afraid. I don’t know.”
“What strikes me is that the teacher never even defended himself,” said Lee McNulty, a retired JFK teacher who has been vocal recently with criticism about violence and disorder in the high school. “That just shows how much teachers are afraid of losing their job.”
Detroit Black Man Who Murdered (Execution Style) Two White Teens Declares ‘Black Lives Matter’ During Sentencing Speech
HMM, DON’T WHITE LIVES MATTER TOO, DON’T THEY?
Convicted murderer Fredrick Young, who robbed, tortured, stripped, his victims, took them to a barren field in Detroit, forced them to kneel in just their underwear and shot them execution style in the back of their heads in late-July 2012 was sentenced to life in prison, decided to make a bizarre speech on Wednesday during sentencing. Instead of saying he was sorry to the families and friends of Westland teens Jacob Kudla and Jourdan Bobbis, who he and Felando D. Hunter murdered, the convicted killer instead apologized to the families of Michael Brown, the teen that was killed by officer Darren Wilson. Who was later not indicted by a grand jury and was recently reported that no civil rights charges will be brought either.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyana Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner and I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who were murdered in cold blood. And in respect for the peaceful protest I want to say hands up, don’t shoot, black lives matter. That’s it your honor.”
Are you happy Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and the rest. This is what you have created with your false charges of police racism. The movement ‘hands up, don’t shoot’ is based upon a lie.
A black man who was found guilty of murdering two white teenagers execution-style in a vacant Detroit field defiantly declared “black lives matter” Wednesday before being sentenced to life in prison.
Fredrick Young and Felando Hunter were sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole for robbing, torturing and murdering Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kudla, who had met up with them in July 2012 to buy drugs, a local Fox affiliate reported.
Young shocked the courtroom when he was given the chance to address the victims’ families, but instead apologized to the families of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
“I’d like to say sorry to the families of Aiyanna Jones, Michael Brown, Eric Garner,” he said. “And I want to apologize to them for not being able to get justice for their loved ones who was murdered in cold blood.
“And in respect for the peaceful protest, I want to say ‘hands up don’t shoot,’” he said, raising his hands in the air. “Black lives matter — that’s it your honor.”
Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke Says About Al Sharpton … “Shut Up And Go Back To The Gutter You Came From”
FREE SPEECH HERO OF THE DAY …
This morning on Fox & Friends, Milwaukee, WI Sheriff David Clarke said that following the news that the DOJ will not bring civil rights charges against Ferguson, Missouri police officer Darren Wilson, that he is owed an apology from Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Al Sharpton. Sheriff David Clarke further went on to say that this whole thing, ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ was based on a lie. He blistered Al Sharpton in a major way.
“I don’t expect anything intelligent to come out of the mouth of Al Sharpton. We all know he is a charlatan, for the matter of fact, the next intelligent thing that comes from his mouth will be the first. Al Sharpton ought to just shut up and go back to the gutter that he came from. Apologize, he will not do that. But the American police officer is owed a lot from him, from Eric Holder and the president of the United States.”
Eric Holder’s DOJ to Drop Civil Rights Charges Brought Against Officer Darren Wilson in Shooting Death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO
Imagine this, FBI investigation finds no evidence to support the trumped up, political, race baiting charges against police officer Darren Wilson.
The New York Times is reporting that the Eric Holder Department of Justice will drop the civil rights charges against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. DOJ lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against officer Wilson in the shooting death of black teenager Michael Brown. The FBI investigation has concluded what all normal thinking, non-race baiting individuals knew from the outset of this story, there was no evidence to support the trumped up charges. Remember when the DOJ told Ferguson police officers they could not wear bracelets in support of officer Wilson? Support for an officer that was guilty of nothing.
Justice Department lawyers will recommend that no civil rights charges be brought against the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed teenager in Ferguson, Mo., after an F.B.I. investigation found no evidence to support charges, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and his civil rights chief, Vanita Gupta, will have the final say on whether the Justice Department will close the case against the officer, Darren Wilson. But it would be unusual for them to overrule the prosecutors on the case, who are still working on a legal memo explaining their recommendation.
A decision by the Justice Department would bring an end to the politically charged investigation of Mr. Wilson in the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The Missouri authorities concluded their investigation into Mr. Brown’s death in November and also recommended against charges.
After the Ferguson grand jury decided not to bring criminal charges against officer Wilson, Eric Holder went to Ferguson, Mo to fan the flames of racism and racial divide. Holder announced that his DOJ would investigate Wilson on civil rights charges, because the vigilante, race-baiting crowd wanted their scalp. Holder said that the Justice Department’s investigation into Mr. Brown’s death would be independent from the one conducted by the local authorities. The race-baiter in Chief, Barack Obama said after St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch announced the grand jury’s decision, “I have done what the Missouri judicial system and even my own Justice Department failed to do in order to right this wrong.”
What will the reaction be from Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the NAACP, NBPP and Barack Obama? Will Eric Holder make a public statement and apologize for destroying the reputation of a fine police officer just because of his color?
SNL … ‘MLK’ Learns What’s Going on in America Today and He’s Not Happy About It … “I Guess We’re Still Climbing That Mountain.”
SNL did a skit over the weekend with the ghost of Martin Luther King Jr. visiting a boy who needed to do a report on the Civil Rights leader.
When the boy informed MLK, played by Kenan Thompson, he was not all that impressed with the state of affairs in America. When told that the US elected its first black president, Barack Obama, MLK respoded, you said Barack O-what now … sounds like a Kenyan Muslim. Hmm, I guess it would have sounded more like one if student, Pete Davidson, had said his full name, Barack Hussein Obama.
Throughout the skit, MLK kept saying … “I guess we’re still climbing that mountain”.
I guess it would have been asking too much on liberal SNL to say that it was really race hustler Al Sharpton leading the civil rights movement and instead of protesting over the deaths of those like 14 year old Emmett Till, whose only crime was talking to a married, 21 year old white woman in 1955 Money Mississippi, today’s civil right movement was all about protesting the death of a black a punk at the hands of a white police officer, who committed a strong arm robbery of a store and then assaulted a police officer trying to take his gun. Yea, I get the two confused myself.
Also, not being told to the ghost of MLK was the division caused by the first elected black president, Barack Obama. Also absent was any reference that black Americans have been worse off under Obama. And I wonder why SNL excluded the fact that Americans believe that race relations are worse under the first elected black president? From the Civil Rights icon who famously made the following statement, “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character” would say about Barack Obama who used skin color and appearances in interjecting himself in the Trayvon Martin case, ‘If I Had A Son, He’d Look Like Trayvon.’
The ghost of “Martin Luther King Jr.,” played by Kenan Thompson, paid a visit to a boy trying to write a school paper on the upcoming holiday during this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”
But it was ‘MLK,’ not the kid, who wound up learning a lot during the sketch — and he didn’t like most of what he learned.
When he hears that the first black president is named Barack Obama, ‘MLK’ blurts out, “Barack O-what now? He sounds like a Kenyan Muslim!”
“MLK” gets hit with a slew of downer news — the boulevards that bear his name aren’t in the nicest neighborhoods, “Selma” got snubbed for Oscar consideration, and Macklemore, “like, the whitest dude ever,” is the face of American hip-hop.
“We’re still climbing that mountain,” “MLK” says sadly.
