Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches.Â Who doesn’t love them, right?
Well my boyfriend came home from work tonight and told me about this story he heard on the news, about a school banning peanut butter and jelly sandwiches because it was considered RACIST!Â I told him this had to be a joke.. he said it wasn’t.Â So I had to investigate.
I found the article here:Â http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/11/is-peanut-butter-and-jelly-racist_n_1874905.html
The principal of this school in Portland, OR is claiming the sandwich is racist, because other students such as Hispanic and Somali cannot eat PB&J sandwiches.Â Apparently, only “whites” eat PB&J.
:::jaw drop:::Â Are you kidding me with this right now?!
What is this world coming to?
Earlier today, I read about this story from RI – where Father/Daughter dances are now banned, because it discriminates against children of single mothers.Â UNBELIEVABLE!
Wegmans, a local grocery store here hired a Muslim cashier, and there is a sign on her register stating if you have pork products or alcohol to please go to another register, because she cannot handle pork or alcohol products due to being Muslim.Â Â You know what?Â I think I’M OFFENDED by that selfishness!Â If you can’t handle pork products, why would you work there and inconvenience customers?Â Â Â Why not get a job somewhere else?
What are your thoughts on all this insanity?Â Last I checked, this was still America.Â But I do not like what it is turning into.
