In an effort to combat perceived discrimination, one Portland school seems to have gone off the deep end by suggesting peanut butter and jelly sandwiches carry racist connotations, Twitchy reported Monday.

According to the Portland Tribune, Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School, “picks up on the subtle language of racism” on a daily basis.

“Take the peanut butter sandwich, a seemingly innocent example a teacher used in a lesson last school year,” the Tribune said.

“What about Somali or Hispanic students, who might not eat sandwiches?” Gutierrez asked. “Another way would be to say: ‘Americans eat peanut butter and jelly, do you have anything like that?’ Let them tell you. Maybe they eat torta. Or pita.”pbj-kkk

“What is racist about a child’s lunch, one might ask? Peanut butter and jelly, of course! You racists probably even use black currant jelly sometimes. On white bread,” Twitchy added.

The Tribune noted that the school started the new year with “intensive staff trainings, frequent staff meetings, classroom observations and other initiatives,” to help educators understand their own “white privilege,” in order to “change their teaching practices to boost minority students’ performance.”

“Last Wednesday, the first day of the school year for staff, for example, the first item of business for teachers at Scott School was to have a Courageous Conversation — to examine a news article and discuss the ‘white privilege’ it conveys,” the Tribune added.”

I like my chunky PB&J on Jewish Rye. I know it’s wrong, I just can’t control myself. Perhaps I need re-education.

    There’s probably GMO soybeans in that peanut butter. Besides, it looks like Ann Coulter camel toes with topical-Valtrex-home-remedy-treated hemorrhagic fever.

    Racist kids can still conceal their illicite eating rituals by carefully-employed clandestine brown bag best practices. Nothing says “I’m not a racist or an elite” so clearly as packing a plain *brown bag* with a stain.

    “Brown Bag, please!” Nope. Doesn’t work. It’s a pretty P.C.-safe icon.

    I’m going to hack an Xbox to respond to “Brown Bag, on.”

    What a stupid ignorant bitch Principal. The kind of lunch served is not an example of Racism, just because some other country can’t afford that sort of luxury. If it’s an example of any damn thing, at all, it’s elitism. And I’m not saying that PB&J is a good example of that. But there’s at least one county in my state, where all the retired high office federal workers go to raise horses on big farms. And their county’s school lunch menu is typically Lasagna or Roast Beef. When the rest of the counties are offering Mac N Cheese or Pizza, for school lunch. That’s a fine example of Elitism. But not an example of Racism. School lunches have nothing to do with that, unless it’s fried chicken and watermelon, for the black schools only. And you’d hear some screaming, if that ever happened.

      I’m Robbi…. bla, bla, bla. Sucking up to the rich. Showing you things you can’t afford. Making you feel like the lowest of lowbboes. Do you see this house what that is behind me?? Well; It is in Bel Air. You can not afford it. You will always be dirt poor.

      The best you will ever attain towards is some 1980’s mashup\morph of Who Pwnd Who {Ain’t Nobody Told You}…

    • Just Dave says:

      Let’s see…

      An average slice of white bread costs 10 cents, an average serving of peanut butter costs 16 cents, and an average serving of jelly costs 10 cents.

      Put it all together and you have a sandwich that costs approximately 46 cents.

      Elitist indeed. Just look.

    “Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School, “picks up on the subtle language of racism” on a daily basis”

    From the little voices in her own head. This woman is just another “Moonbat liberal” running amok.

    • Glenn E. says:

      Notice how she appears to be a Ricky Lake knock-off? How is that, not being a “racist”, by her definition of it? 🙂

    • Nilla Wafer says:

      At least she’s no elitist/fascist like Nancy Pelosi! That crazy bitch see’s famous dead women in the oval office.

      …I won’t even go into the other crazy shit she’s into. But I’d bet they do know each other!

  4. Glenn E. says:

    Nobody ever accused a Rubin’s sandwich of being racist, against all the non-Jews. I’d eat one, if it weren’t for the sour kraut on it. I’ve never been a fan of that stuff. It’s said the Jews invented Tuna Fish salad. And I occasionally make myself some of that. In fact the Jews invented a lot of nice things to eat. But eating them, or not, has nothing to do with racism or ethnocentrism. Just what one likes to eat, or what doesn’t disagree with them.

    I can think of some pretty disgusting things the English/Romans came up with to eat, over the centuries. That are far better candidates for racist or ethnocentric foods. But they probably just didn’t have much to choose from, during the dark ages.

    • Tim {mostly} says:

      I recommend some left over greasy pork chops served on a dirty ashtray. But with a twist of lemmon and…. Kayle.

  5. MikeN says:

    If you like your sandwich you can keep it. Or not.

    • Nilla Wafer says:

      What about Oreo cookies?!

      (Oh shit! What can of worms did THAT just open?)

  6. Tommy O'Bama says:

    As a member of the much discriminated against Irish Catholic community, I am outraged by the fact that Guinness is not made readily available to me in my company cafeteria….I demand justice!!!

    Therefore, I am demanding Gov’t subsidized Guinness for all Irish Catholic Americans!

    BTW: Not those protestants though, those guys suck.

    • Tim says:

      Dallas? You would be so good at hide-‘n’-seek for Btc. “You’re it.”

  7. MikeN says:

    This is how liberals operate. Chris Matthews said a reference to the President playing golf is racism, intended to link him to Tiger Woods.

    We can even see it on the blathering commentary about Django and 12 Years. They have nothing interesting to say, but they insist on having a conversation about race.

    White bread is a lead drug to chewing tobacco.

  9. B. Dog says:

    What next? Arguably the reign of Mac ‘n Cheese may soon be over.
    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  10. Nilla Wafer says:

    Next, I suppose they’ll be removing all the salt and pepper dispensers. Either that or putting it all in ONE dispenser.

    …And Yes, I said it. I like Oreo cookies, damn it!

  11. Tim says:

    “The tits were spread with peanut butter. It said so in the press!”

  12. Just Dave says:

    This whole thing reminds me of one my high school teachers back in the early 70’s, who telling our class that story problems for grade school kids were racist because many of them involved fruit. (Mary had 3 apples and gave one to the teacher. How many apples did Mary have left?)

    The teacher felt that many inner-city kids (blacks?) might not know what an apple or an orange is, and therefore might not understand the problem.

    Why, oh why, does food have to be so racist?

  13. bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

    I get the woman is stupid, but from that how do we take it she is a liburool?

    IN POINT OF FACT, the example INCLUDING the 3 apples math problem is a well known BIAS of the unconscious/unknown type. It IS something to be aware of and deal with when the mole hill becomes just a few shovel loads higher.

    I disagree it is a racist/racial bias and would say it is a more innocent “cultural” bias.

    This very much reminds me and is in line with a YouTube of Buffy St Marie talking about how much of what some might think of racism against her Indian Heritage was: “actually just greed.” What a smart woman I thought. One of my top ten songs EVAR is also linked.

    So like a conservative….not being able to distinguish stupid from liberal, or any other term they consider pejorative.

    Ha, ha.

      If you can’t recognize one of your own, then you’re stupider than she.

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        If I HAD TO GUESS…. sure. She is latina and a grade school teacher.

        OTOH==my sis is a grade school teacher, white as Wonder Bread, and as stupidly right wing/religious as you can get.

        I blame the Wonder Bread. The air all went to her head.

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        …….and ….. thanks for demonstrating the point.

        Silly Hooman.

    • Tim says:

      Mary’s uncle Leroy has a Volkswagen with a working glove-box. How many watermelons are stuffed inside?

  14. lolhipster says:

    I’m Hispanic and I eat both PB&J sandwiches and pita all the time.

    Why can’t people like her stop making us look bad?

    • ± says:

      Har. Was thinking the same thing. She is totally vapid. And to stupid people (which is much of humanity, 1/2?) she makes other Hispanics look just as bad by association. And this thought emanates entirely from within my framework of “white privilege”.

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        Not to beat a dead horse…. but how does she make other hispanics look bad?

        “……….♫….Whoops, there it is……..”

        • Tommy O'Bama says:

          “Not true with this grade school teacher. She can read and write and hold down a regular job. Not like Hispanics at (all)?

          How very Liberal of you.

          Your white Privilege is showing under your skirt.

          • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

            I’ve always been very cognizant of my privilege.


            What makes them?

  15. Dallas says:

    What’s interesting here is this Fox News shrill isn’t about the Obamacare website crisis.
    Even though I love peanut butter, this is encouraging .

    • MikeN says:

      The crisis is when the website starts working.

      • Dallas says:

        Quit worshiping the American health insurance racket.
        With Obamacare, you still have hundreds of thousands of payers and you can keep your gynecologist. What’s more is removing that stick in your ass will be covered.

  16. JT says:

    Where is Portland? North Korea?

  17. JimD says:

    I thought the white kids had ham and American Cheese on Wonder Bread with Mayo, for crying out loud. While the “underprivileged kids” had pb&j !!!
