This takes butthurt to new levels ffs, I had to lol.

And the controversy started with this tweet:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">If you're not cooking with these greens, you need to be! How to cook collards: <a href="https://t.co/2lk2bMnKdS">https://t.co/2lk2bMnKdS</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/HealthYeah?src=hash">#HealthYeah</a> <a href="https://t.co/YqBPXg3uus">pic.twitter.com/YqBPXg3uus</a></p>&mdash; Whole Foods Market (@WholeFoods) <a href="https://twitter.com/WholeFoods/status/687665527553134592">January 14, 2016</a></blockquote>

Yeah, really un-PC 15.gif

A grocery store urging people to eat a vegetable is not “appropriation.” And there is no norm whereby identity groups are “credited” for a veggie that they consume. Indeed, many would’ve been offended had Whole Foods Tweeted, “If you're not cooking with collard greens like black people do, you need to be.” Yet this wasn’t just an idiosyncratic opinion piece. CNN was far from alone.


Because it's one of the most important issues of today, along with climate change

I like Mexican food, admittedly, because of my own horrific godforsaken white privilege. As a white male, I so long to be a feminist.
I'd love the opportunity to be a minority, to look at the world through problematic glasses and become empowered to... you know... go on twitter and post really dumb shït that gets under everybody's skin, and they'd be like all scared and shït to reply as to not offend me because I have a minority wagena and such as. coffeetime.gif

To say that collards, fried chicken, watermelon, koolaid and bar b q chips are black things is racist but to consume them is race appropriation...


Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor
