A School Celebrates Black History Month By Serving Fried Chicken, Cornbread, and Watermelon?


A high school in northern California just celebrated Black History Month in such a misguided way, it seems like they need education into black history.  There should be a month for that . . .
 
Earlier this week, the Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, California decided to pay homage to Black History Month by serving a special lunch menu . . . featuring fried chicken, cornbread, and watermelon.
 
Students and parents were OUTRAGED, and the principal of the school ended up apologizing.
 
A professor at the University of San Francisco says the school apparently didn't realize that, quote, "Chicken, watermelon . . . these are stereotypes of black Southern culture that come from the same place the N-word comes from." (NBC 11 - San Jose)
