What if consuming peanut butter is a part of a childs religious faith? Maybe schools should ban ham sandwiches because of the dear little Muslim children.
So that principal is claiming all sandwiches are a racial issue?
That sounds like the stupidest thing I've heard in a long time... first off, what the principal is talking about is culture differences, NOT racial differences, while some might not know the differences between the two, any decent principal should.
Some cultures have torta or pita instead of sandwiches... so what?
My culture doesn't have torta or pita in them, but I would of welcomed them on a school lunch menu... just because it's not in my culture doesn't mean anything!
The real problem is probably the quality of the meal... if you give me a bad meal, I'll complain about it no matter the culture... give him a good meal and I'll enjoy it... even if it's not with in my culture.
Then what's the problem? That some kids have sandwiches from home while others don't have them from home? or what?
This story just doesn't make sense... other than different culture have different foods... and someone seems to think that's some how racist/white privilege
I think it comes in because some kids have parents who will take the time to pack a lunch for their child while some kids don't have any parents who would do that. that is the only thing I can think of that would make this situation understandable.
Apparently you're right, it is a cultural thing. I agree with you, bring whatever you want from home and that includes pork sandwiches. This is about what is served in the cafeteria. smh
“Racist Sandwich” is a podcast all about race and food.The name is a reference to 2012 national media firestorm that began in Portland, Oregon, when a public school principal dared to suggest that school meals should fit the cultural tastes and dietary restrictions of their constituent students. Why serve peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, asked Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott Elementary School? Why not pita or torta?
I agree with whole heartly.
Perhaps schools should start serving their student's dog so as not to offend the Vietnamese students.
First, it doesn't matter what year the story came out, it's the fact that it's a story.
Second, If José can be offended by my peanut butter and jelly sandwich then I should be allowed to be offended by his taco.
So, history shouldn't be a part of topic discussions?
So, prohibition should never be spoken of because it happened before 2012 and it has changed its policies on alcohol consumption.
Even a dumb stump knows that topics more than 5 years old can be worth discussing.
You, however, seem to be having a difficult time grasping that.
So, the fact that a teacher who believes that sandwiches are racist is in control of our children's education isn't important to you?
But, it takes a village. Hillary said so.
Hillary isn't qualified to handle school lunches. Hillary's idea of lunch is a fifth of Wild Turkey.
Stonehenge is several years old, lets never speak of it again!
Isn't hand wringing about other people's hand wringing what keeps forums like this one alive? How many times a day do people here hand wring about Trumps hand wringhing?
Yet, false claims of racist sandwiches effects no one? This teacher is molding young minds! This teacher is part of the reason America has a liberal problem.
These sandwiches are going cause our children to suffer from white guilt.
I doubt it. Liberalism scars young minds. I was fortunate enough to be raised in a family who kept me from the clutches of liberal indoctrination.
You, it seems were not so lucky.
