CBP celebrates Black History Month

Black History Month Menu At NYU 'Inexcusably Insensitive'

On Thursday, February 22 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.at City Hall, area middle and high school students will be competing for prizes as they perform original spoken word compositions at the "2nd Annual Talented 10th Poetry Slam Spoken Word Competition".

Harris complained to Weinstein Passport Dining Hall's head cook and was told that the menu was not meant to be offensive, but was planned by Black workers.

NYU President Andrew Hamilton blamed caterer Aramark, according to the New York Post. "You walk inside the dining hall only to find ribs, collard greens, and mac and cheese", Harris wrote in a Facebook post that included an image of the email she sent to dining services. Victoria Pasquale, the food service company's regional vice president, said one of its employees ignored company protocol by not consulting anyone before running the menu.

The company behind the tone-deaf and beguilingly stupid stunt has fired several of the employees it claims were responsible. "The individual acted independently in a way that runs counter to our values and compromised our longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion".

As we celebrate the premiere of Black Panther with all its lovely Blackness along with the news that Sade will be making a musical appearance in A Wrinkle In Time, Black History month is being interrupted with some disturbing news. Watermelons, especially, have been used for more than a century as a "symbol of black peoples perceived uncleanliness, laziness, childishness and unwanted public presence", historian William R. Black wrote in The Atlantic in 2014, after two highly publicized uses of the stereotype. While Harris is happy both the university and Aramark took swift action, she said it shouldn't have happened in the first place.

"Longing for a return to White History isn't the only sentiment behind the MAGA slogan", said Ed Kilgrove of New York Magazine.

On a daily basis, Harris said, she and other black students are "doing the same work and were getting the same grades as you, and were doing this extra work, teaching people how to be sensitive to us".
