In an effort to combat perceived discrimination, one Portland school seems to have gone off the deep end by suggesting peanut butter and jelly sandwiches carry racist connotations, Twitchy reported Monday.
“Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year,” the Tribune said.
“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” Gutierrez asked. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”
“Insert flabbergasted face,” the Twitchy staff wrote.
One person asked on Twitter: “[W]hat’s the verdict on grilled cheese? Racist? Sexist?”
“The food at my kids’ schools hates everyone,” tweeted Melissa Clouthier.
