It seeks divestment from Israel, segregated black only "safe spaces," protest leaders be paid $8.20 an hour for protesting (my personal favourite), a minimum $15 wage for all workers plus healthcare, etc., and many, many more.

Please don't think these kids are fooling around as they assure the college:
This is very sternly worded.

Good fuck! I really, really, hope that they just grow a pair and kick all these asholes out. So fucking self important. So much ignorance.

Oh, and fuck Jazz.

I'm still chuckling at the fuckhead that is concerned about steamed vs. deep fried chicken and the "authenticity" of their General Tso's chicken.

Racist. You might as well be telling me that the Chinese don't eat a fortune cookie after every meal.

General Tso is a staple in Chinese culture. I don't know why you aren't taking this more seriously. I'm even more surprised that the Chinese kids aren't protesting too.

I know we're joking but

In modern day China the pinyin would be Zuo as in general Zuo. I don't think they've used Wade Giles since 80s which is probably when the dish came to the states from I think Taiwan

Dish is fairly uniquely American

I guess the syllabus and wealth of general information available all over the college's website don't cut it.

It needs to be posted by a black programmer.

You know I dont recall any computer science majors that were black in college. I mean I went to an engineering school with plenty of black engineers, scientists, etc but no cs majors...

All my 80, and 90 year old White friends love Bebop. Just can't get into Jazz for some reason.

Jazz is the Conneman's favorite genre.

Very balanced piece on the Oberlin cafeteria "situation."
Quote:
As an Oberlin alum commented in the student newspaper, “I worked in multiple dining halls and was friendly with many of the staff there, and out of everyone I met, maybe two of them had been out of the country before. One of them even told me that she had never seen or heard of a chickpea before she started working there. Before students start labeling the lack of authenticity of their food as ‘cultural appropriation,’ maybe they should take a step back and think about the likely differences between themselves and the people who are preparing it.”

Have we completely lost the irony that the banh mi itself is a form of cultural appropriation? Far from being " another country's traditional food " as alleged by one Oberlin student in the article, existence of the banh mi in the first place owes itself to colonial oppression.

If you wanted to be particularly devilish about it , you could even make the argument that a bánh mì is an offensive appropriation of the cherished French culinary culture.

I really think this is a part of the problems in society now. Instead of putting the axe to the grindstone and trying to do something for yourself we just bitch and moan until it changes. It was the same around WI for months of protesting over what seems to be entitlement issues. Many of the people there could have actually been adding to society instead of protesting.
I also liked the complaint about the orientation food. If you see this coming, dont go to that school.
Better yet, do what the rest of us did and eat at the "salad bar" ot make ramen in your dorm room. My school food was terrible. The pizza was even inedible. I survived.
