The PB-and-J-PC Sandwich

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Is eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich an example of “white privilege?” Say what?  You know, one of those “seemingly innocent,” cleverly-hidden word tools to promote racism? Apparently Verenice Gutierrez, Principal of Harvey Scott School in Portland, Oregon thinks so.

The Portland Tribune reports that Ms. Gutierrez warns students against the subtle language of white racism in everyday life.

“What about Somali or Hispanic students who might not eat sandwiches?” says Gutierrez. “Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”

Hmmm.  Actually the idea of identifying racist language isn’t bad – but when you combine it with class warfare using different food as examples, it sounds pretty stupid.  A sandwich can hardly be compared to the N— word.

Indian kids probably aren’t big on hamburgers nor Muslims and Jews on BLT’s – but what the hell?  This is America.  Let students eat what they want to eat and not feel compelled to take bites of cultural consciousness with every mouthful and swallow.

Here’s the problem: if political correctness is pushed to idiot extremes, many people will stop thinking ANY OF IT is a good idea and eventually go back to the days when using terms like wops, niggers, fags, spics, and kikes was acceptable.  It’s NOT acceptable today but we don’t want its most extreme forms shoved down our throats.


If you think I’m not being politically correct on this idea, I assure you, you will not like my post “English Spoken Here.”  Read it here.

Marvelous Marvell KO’d In 7th Round

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Marvell Weaver, 17,  of Lansing, Michigan, was quite a contender in the “Knockout Game.” The infamous game is played by trying to knock out with one punch – or taser – an unsuspecting pedestrian while your buddies tape the shot for the internet.  Marvell was undefeated in six previous rounds but then came out for round 7.

Marvell hopped out of a van and shot a taser into an unidentified man. But the taser malfunctioned and the contender didn’t go down.  Instead, the would-not-be-a-victim pulled out a .40 caliber pistol and seriously shot Marvelous twice.  The man had a legal conceal-carry gun permit.

When Marv got out of the hospital, he was charged by police and is now beginning a 1-year jail sentence.  The “victim” was not charged in the incident.

“It was just a lesson learned,” Weaver said. “I wish I hadn’t played the game at all.”

Aww – too bad, Marv. “You coulda been a contenda!” But instead you took the 1-2 punch train to palookaville.
