Evil "Racist" Bread
- Retard Alert from the People's Republic of California - As Christians are being slaughtered and enslaved in the Middle East we see the retarded liberals of California getting worked up about bread. Indeed, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
(The Riverside Press Enterprise) - Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder won’t give up his high-profile legal fight to hold on to the name of his football team.
However, slowly but surely, sometimes loudly, sometimes quietly, Native American mascot names are vanishing from the U.S. vernacular – as is another monicker some find offensive: squaw.
In headline-grabbing decisions, the Buffalo, N.Y., mayor last week signed a bill to change the name of an island in the Niagara River, and 12 years ago Arizona officials renamed Phoenix’s Squaw Peak. Throughout the country, the term is disappearing from canyons, roads and creeks.
It’s also being taken off the menu at Riverside’s Backstreet Restaurant, as a result of a customer’s quiet objection.
Known for its informal outdoor-garden-style dining and sandwiches, the 48-year-old restaurant is a place where people customize orders, selecting the type of meat and bread they want.
A few weeks back, a woman walked up to the counter and ordered a turkey sandwich. She pointed to the word “squaw” on a miniature chalkboard to select a bread type, saying she couldn’t say the word, said restaurant owner Keith Holloway.
“I said, ‘Why?’ And she said, ‘Well, it’s highly offensive.’ Apparently it’s on the level of the N-word in their culture,” said Holloway, who cruises around the establishment in a purple-and-gold cap, khaki shorts and a T-shirt.
“And, of course, as soon as she walked through I covered it up,” he said. “The last thing I want to do is to offend my customers.”
Now, a scrap of paper with the word “brown” covered the spot on the chalkboard.
Holloway said is he looking for a permanent name for the dark brown, molasses-sweetened bread to write on the sign, print on paper menus and post on the restaurant website. And he is holding a contest, taking nominations through the end of this month.
“We have to rename it, and we have to do it pretty quick,” he said.
Tara Houska, a Washington, D.C., tribal rights attorney and co-founder of notyourmascots.org, termed the move “an excellent decision.”
Old Town Baking Co. in Rancho Cucamonga made a similar decision in early 2013. Keith Klinger, wholesale sales manager for the bakery, said its former “squaw” bread was rebranded “Cucamonga sweet wheat.”
It’s one of about 30 breads made there, Klinger said.Read More . . . .
