Cambridge is accused of ‘cultural misrepresentation’ by ethnic minority students after serving up ‘Jamaican stew’ and ‘Tunisian rice’ on menus

A Cambridge college has been accused of ‘cultural misrepresentation’ by students after serving ‘Jamaican stew’ and ‘Tunisian rice’ on its menus.

Students argued the dishes served at Pembroke College were not authentic to countries they were described to be from.

The row started online after the University’s complaints Facebook page, Grudgebridge, expressed a grievance with the names of meals on offer.

    These losers are attending one of the world’s premier universities and they have nothing better to do than this! How pathetic. How does one have hope for the future when these are supposedly the brightest and best?

    • Because studying is hard or something.

    • Mark Matis

      Surely you understand by now that they are AA specials. They only get in because the university has to meet a quota. They will “graduate” because their professors understand they have to pass them in order to keep their jobs.

      THAT is what “higher education” in the West has become over the years.

      Even if they brought in a Jamaican to cook the stew and a Tunisian to cook the rice this would be still be deemed inappropriate because these foods must be enjoyed in a complete ethnic setting, instead of single dishes ripped from their this setting. You cannot win, and you shouldn’t bother trying to placate these whiners.

        Attending Cambridge and in England no less amounts to more cultural appropriation for them than you could shake a stick at.

        They should stick with “Fricasseed Beef” and “Spiced Rice”.

        • Watchman

          Sorry, ‘fricassee’ is of French cultural origin and therefore qualified for protection from cultural misappropriation.
          “Beef stew with foreign spices, tomatoes, celery and onions” and “Rice with foreign spices” are the only acceptable descriptions.

    Typical imported puppets.
    Wonder which ancient white commie ponce sjw on the faculty put them up to it?

  • I don’t know if it is “rude” insofar as it is inedible.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Burn the college down and murder all the white students and staff

    When rice and stew are the pinacle of your peoples’ achievements you have to make sure they’re prepared in the traditional way so it doesn’t mess up the cultural signals white people are supposed get from eating them. Seriously, how can we hope to integrate with these people when we can’t even get stew right?

    • Watchman

      Even if you get the recipe right, it’s still cultural misappropriation unless cooked by a national of that culture, (and presumably eaten only by people of that culture).

      • Alain

        So why do they wear our cloths and use our technology? They do not even realise how totally ridiculous they make themselves to be.

        • Watchman

          Well. It’s like Racism. It’s only a crime when white males do it. Everyone who does the same actions or says the same thing against whites is excused.

  • Maggat

    One ‘student’ cannot spell ‘things’ correctly. Perhaps some remedial spelling back in grade school is in order.

  • k1962

    I guess they should just call those meals stew and rice and no one will be offended.

  • Editor

    This nonsense will not stop until some university administration puts their big boy pants on and tells the eternally offended SJWs to fuck right off, refund their money and send them on their way. It might lose them a few professional whiners for the first few years but I would imagine this would be quickly made up, by normal people, once the word gets out that the University will not kowtow to this infantile PC bullshit. Whether there are institutions left on the planet where the administrators have not themselves been infected by this cultural marxism remains to be seen.

    • Mark Matis

      They don’t have any “big boy pants”. Or more accurately, only the lesbo dykes have said pants, and they aren’t about to put them on to oppose these SLWs. After all, someone has to be the “wife” in the arrangement…

  • Watchman

    Only as long as you never attempt to cook like them, or eat like them and you continue to praise their ethnicity, while feeling ashamed of your own white culture at the same time. First person to stop clapping gets a ten year holiday in Siberia.
