Oh the times we live in where food can be deemed racist. In a move Oprah would be proud of, Principal Verenice Gutierrez, of the Harvey Scott K-8 School in Portland, has labeled peanut butter and jelly sandwiches as racist.
Apparently, in a move distinguished by the superintendant of the school, an effort was made to, “improve education for students of color.”
Tell me, how does the lunch selection improve the implementation of education?
This is so far beyond politically correct it’s dumfounding. Gutierrez has determined that the fact that the PB&J is on bread, it leads to cultural sensitivity.
Now let’s break that down.
The principal states that certain students that belong to minorities, take for example, “Somali or Hispanic students,” may not have culturally eaten bread, but instead used things like torta, or pitas.
She says that the school must, “change their teaching practices to boost minority students’ performance,” in order to cancel out all the “white privilege.”
I’ve about had it with the accusations of racism from the left, and frankly, this is taking it too far.
So now this school has to spend MORE money to buy a product suitable for the minority in order to accommodate political correctness?
It can’t use racial slurs, it can’t discriminate and it’s crucial in making a PB&J.
I guess I have to go to the store and pick up some wheat bread now to promote loaf diversity in my kitchen.
We wouldn’t want anyone feeling left out, would we?
