Officials at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, Calif. are apologizing for celebrating Black History Month by placing watermelon, fried chicken and cornbread on the Catholic school's menu last Friday.
The school's Black Student Union was reportedly the first to raise objections to the controversial lunch menu (video below).
According to NBC Bay Area, Carondelet Principal Nancy Libby explained the situation to students during a school assembly on Wednesday and wrote a letter to parents, which read in part:
I’d like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members. Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes.
The Associated Press notes that Principal Libby says Carondelet will hold a diversity assembly for students and teachers.
When some people go into they bedroom, they fantasize about making love to a hot celebrity, like a Boris Kodjoe for the ladies or a Kim Kardashian for the fellas. But one woman would rather get it on with Popeyes fried chicken.
Steve Harvey hosted a bizarre segment on his talk show in which a white woman expressed her admiration and lust for Popeye’s fried chicken.
“Well, food excites me, and I mean it excites me. If he’s not doing what he’s supposed to in there, I start thinking, ‘Popeyes spicy, Popeyes spicy, Popeyes spicy,’ and it gets me where I need to be,” she said. “Is it weird that just the thought of Popeyes spicy chicken gets me to climax?”
Well, not necessarily … but it does mean that ol’ girl will have no trouble surviving in any inner city or landing a black man as a lover. I could imagine this woman doing Beyonce’s “Dance for You” routine in front of a bucket of Popeye’s chicken in fact.
See and everybody wants to act like black folks are the only ones who like fried chicken.
