Default High School has a special lunch to celebrate Black History Month

Yep, you guesses it... fried chicken, corn bread, and watermelon.

What could possibly go wrong?

Seriously though, this is a stupid stereotype. Fried chicken and watermelon are awesome.

I never eat watermelon in a public setting.

I also avoid eating bananas in public but because of the shape.

I will eat a peach though.

I could eat a peach all day.

(Awwww yeah)

It's just hilarious to me that this is coming from CA.

I totally get why this is supposed to be offensive as a Black History lunch, but the food is mainly good, Southern food that all of us, black or white, grew up loving. Nothing is better on a hot summer's day than a cold slice of fresh watermelon.

Default Re: High School has a special lunch to celebrate Black History Month

I'll get the discussion started here. Three things to point out from my perspective. I understand this is the stereotype, but as a white male:

- I love fried chicken (when fried properly). Like KFC does it, not like the fried chicken at a Chinese Buffett.
- I like watermelon; as far as I know, anybody could like watermelon, regardless of race.
- I can eat the hell out of some good cornbread. And the term, "Good" varies. I've had all kinds of good cornbread.

So, though I think a lot of stereotypes are based in fact, this one is way off as it could honestly be applied to any southerner; myself included.

That's called good eating. People are too sensitive.

I also enjoy the hell out of these particular food items. Toss some vodka in that melon and I'm ready to tailgate. I miss football.

The school I teach at has a Soul Food Lunch for all the teachers on the half day this month. They do it every year, some of the best food I have ever had.
