Put Down That Taco You Racist!

Mmmm... "Cultural Appropriation" with a tangy mango salsa!

Mmmm… “Cultural Appropriation” with a tangy mango salsa!

“But, food is appropriated when people from the dominant culture – in the case of the US, white folks – start to fetishize or commercialize it, and when they hoard access to that particular food.

When a dominant culture reduces another community to it’s cuisine, subsumes histories and stories into menu items – when people think culture can seemingly be understood with a bite of food, that’s where it gets problematic.

It’s also harmful when the dominant culture controls the economic and material resources to produce that food for their own consumption and profit.

Here are some dining behaviors that are culturally appropriative when it comes to food.”

Then the bullshit really begins to flow, much like the Yellow River during monsoon season.

    Even if we can’t eat at all the great restaurants anymore, we can still thank multiculturalism for all the great cab rides.

    • If not the food, what the hell is political multiculturalism for?

      Even leftists know this in their “heart” of “hearts”.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        You STOLE my brain thought!!!!

        • Sorry but when it comes to food, I cannot remain silent!

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            I bet the concept of Korean tacos must drive that author from the WaPo insane.

          • Wait- is this a real thing? Really?

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            They are the latest culinary creation to come out of Los Angeles.

          • I must get the recipe for those.

          • Islam Is a Crock

            Man, they look awesome. l may have to culturally appropriate tomorrow night!! 😉

          • Drunk_by_Noon

            Make sure you tenderize the meat by culturally shaming it first and don’t forget to literally rape the kimchi too!

          • Justin St.Denis

            I developed a serious kimchi monkey during my time in South Korea. LOVE the stuff. 😉

      • Exile1981

        The have hearts?

      • BillyHW

        What about the rape?

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      If you can’t afford to buy yourself an ethnic, you can own one by buying their food. An old co-worker liked to crudely joke about going for Chinese, so that he could watch the owner jump and scramble for buddy’s money….

  • Frances

    Forget the food, let’s take back all the appropriations by others, beginning with – in North America – the wheel, the horse, and the medicine chest. Then let the Israelis re-appropriate all their contributions to the cell phone, and see what happens to the rest of the world.

  • Blind Druid

    My chin hit my chest before I could get very far reading that load of horse dollop.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Try reading university papers by contemporary “students”. More than you chin will drop, and you WILL want to stick PINS in your eyes after about 30 minutes!

    Can some of the Social Justice Warriors out there tell me what the point of tolerating any other races or cultures might be, if I can’t eat their tacos, drink their sake, or wear their feathered headdresses?

    Coming up next on the social taboo hit parade has to be missegregation.
    I just wonder how they are going to package that one.

    • Martin B

      They’ll find a way. After all they’ve already declared that any white parents who adopt black, brown, red, or yellow children are committing cultural genocide.

  • Gary

    I had just noticed a new way to find out which groups is the newest wave of refugees and immigrants or illegals.

    It hit me one day at the local McDonald’s that they are quick to avoid the racism label and boycotts so there Menu changes to cater tot he latest Groups pouring into Canada.
    But this Cultural accommodation looks pretty stupid in Toronto because new comers prefer to self-segregate in their ghetto’s which makes it pointless for every McDonald’s to post the same Menu or pull items that sell well in my area.

    For McDonald’s to cater to 50-80,000 people among closer to 5 million to gear their menu to appease them at every outlet means that popular items are taken down to post the low volume Niche foods .
    One day when every one is from a mixed marriage to create the one colour of skin and all the cultures and now just one soup of diversity there will be just one very bland menu and 100 shades of beige for food and drinks.
    There will be nobody left to offend because whites and blacks will be gone along with no religion which becomes a religion practised by 99% of the world.

  • Clausewitz

    Some day someone should tell these ass hats the meaning of a fish taco means to a Maritimer. They are indeed cunning linguists.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      In San Diego, there is only one kind of fish taco!

      • Justin St.Denis

        Open your eyes. You are wrong. There are ALWAYS two kinds of fish tacos wherever one kind is served. It’s life….

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Regional delicacy?

  • These people all need to be deported to Syria. They don’t know how to appreciate civilization.

    I remember wild rice was a tres nouveau ingredient at one time.
    Fact is it’s good if you add it to white rice to mix up the texture, but wild rice on it’s own is pretty gross.
    Also not bad if you use it to stuff chicken breasts.
    I worked with a guy who would take a week off in the fall to go back home ricing with his family.
    Good money apparently.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Eating wild rice alone is like chewing on small twigs. Horrible.

    This quinoa craze has me at a loss.
    But, I’m a flatlander surrounded by many potato farms.

    • Exile1981

      It has more nutrients than a potatoe’s skin and has protein in it. Less starch than a tatter. Sub 5-10% of the flour in pancakes for quinoa flour and it’s more filling.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        My parents became health food people in the late seventies.
        Not nuts but there were some unpleasant food choices in the pantry.
        This was back when sea salt from the health food store was green because, I don’t know, always thought it had algae in it.
        Along with the buckwheat, brown rice and wheat bran.
        Since then I have been wary of fad foods and have a good appreciation for a classic fifties diet and the simple banquet food I ate for years working in hotels before the advent of the food network and homo and gay tv.

        • Exile1981

          I’m not into fad foods but I looked into quinoa just as fad started and liked the idea of adding protein into bread products. Anymore than 10% sunstitution makes it bitter and kids wont eat it. Most of the fad people cook it like rice but i prefer grinding it as a flour.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Could you do that with sunflower seeds, too?

          • Exile1981

            maybe. I have a press ( hand crank) for converting sunflower seeds to oil but its a lot of work…. of course hand grinding my own flour is a work out as well.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Twenty years ago I used to work with a guy from the West Indies.
            He was chef before there was a South Park chef.
            And he made his own bread every day because he was freaked about preservatives.
            He also used to call iguanas chicken of the trees.

            I extracted a Jamaican Black Cake recipe from a colleague who got me hooked on it. It took my Brandy Cheesecake recipe to convince her to relinquish her Black Cake recipe. It was a fair exchange. I make Black Cake at least four times a year. Or should I say I shamelessly appropriate from Jamaican culture at least quarterly?

          • Exile1981

            We still buy some breads but you want to make a truly decadent loaf ofvfrench bread? Replace the liquid in the recipe with whey and it takes it too a new level.

            Use fresh whey not that powdered crap.

          • Justin St.Denis

            OMG! I gobble those by the fistful while I drive. Simply love sunflower seeds as well as sesame seed sweets.

          • Justin St.Denis

            It’s granular texture is a deal-breaker with me. I have “food texture issues” which keep me far, far away from liver of any kind, quinoa, rice pudding (gag!) and kale (which feels like hay in my mouth). I apparently inherited this from my mother, who also confided that she never bought strawberry ice cream when we were kids because the berries in it looked like clotted menstrual blood. I was 14 at the time and have not eaten strawberry ice cream since, just like my siblings. 😉

          • Exile1981

            Grind the quinoa into flour andbit doesn’t have that texture anymore.

          • chacun à son goût and all that, but eeeeeeewwwwwwwww.

  • bargogx1

    Love the way Ruth Tam gets ripped in the comments section of her article. The Rachel Kuo article is deliciously ironic since the people she’s complaining about, the seekers of the “authentic” ethnic food experience, are exactly the type of annoying twats who are the biggest cheerleaders of multiculturalism. Once again the Left eats itself. Pun intended.

  • Islam Is a Crock

    i cooked this on the weekend and all the cultural appropriation was absolutely worth it as it was fucking delicious…

    Up in Barrie, I enjoyed a dessert at a chinese restaurant that would curl SJW’s hair for sure. Spicy cinnamon apple pie filling in crispy, fresh-fried wontons. WOW! I thought I had died and gone to heaven! Having Apple pie culturally appropriated by those Barrie Chinese restauranteurs and served Asian-style in wontons! Clearly, the chef should have been shot. Fuckin stupid SJWs.

  • Raymond Hietapakka

    ….Sounds like the theory was developed by the idiots who graduated from the stupid Arts courses I didn’t bother to attend due to their annoying inculcation of dogmas…

  • marty_p

    As a Jew I am totally distressed that bagels were appropriated and have become mainstream….especially when Tim Horton’s bagels get voted “The best bagel” in my local “Best of…” survey.
