    Guess I've been outed as a racist, as I like PBJs. Nothing better on a cold day, especially one cold enough to freeze the contents of my lunchbox.

    Here is another comment from the op:


    "One commenter at the Tribune observed that the phrase "as American as apple pie" could also be seen as racist if "people of color don't eat it."

    In other words if an activity is seen as a typically white person activity that "people of color" do not engage in then it can only come form white privilege and therefore is racist to impose such things on "people of color".

    The teacher used a peanut butter and Jelly sandwhich as a teaching illustration which was quickly deemed racist.

    That would be gender-exploitative.

    Well, when ziggin' and zaggin' have been deemed racist by a single individual and had to be removed from a bus in Pittsburgh I know that we have gone into the Twilight zone.
