22. I suppose the meal would have been fine IF

the school included a lesson on the history of soul food and racist black stereotypes as they were serving it. It's fine for us, as adults, to discuss regional and cultural food rationally after the fact. But the meal alone, presented to children as "black history," devoid of deeper social context, passes along racist imagery and stereotypes. That's the difference, Kitty.
