What Double Standard?

On Martin Luther King Day, serving chicken & waffles was considered racist:

Now, Obama stops by Roscoe's House of Chicken & Waffles for wings, waffles, & fries, and not even a twitch of the ol' journalistic eyebrow.

What's up with that?

Good thing he didn't have the cornbread.

  1. What the hell? When did waffles become a "black" food? That's a load of cr&p.

  2. Well, brief googling indicates that it's technically "soul food":

  3. Why in the hell was this ever even considered racist or insulting?

    Fried chicken and watermelon are fucking delicious. So are waffles, ribs, and pickled pigs feet aren't great but not as bad as you'd think.

    White ethnic food?

    Haggis?- Ok I love it, but most folks gag.

    Lutefisk is concentrated suck.

    Bah. Except for the chitlins I'll take soul food any day of the week.
