Denver Public Schools lunch menu: Fried chicken, collard greens

On the 20th they have Chicken Ala King, would that have been more appropriate?

What?
I *like* fried chicken and collards.

The trick to cleaning collards, btw, is to use the washing machine. Otherwise you don't get all the sand & grit out.

What the school should have said, when asked about it, is "fuck off, it's southern food, that's  all there is to it.  Take your imputations of racism and shove 'em up your ass."

There are certain implications of "Niggardly Nigger" there, but nuts to it, I want that lunch.  Wife doesn't like collard greens, so I never get that at home.

I wouldn't mind the fried chicken, but what do collard greens taste like?

Add some oyster sauce maybe. We tried chinese broccoli instead of bok choi in a chicken stirfry last night and it was bloody nice:

In the UK we just call them 'greens', as in the typical admonishment to a child: 'just shut up and eat your greens'.

They are one of those specially healthy foods you are supposed to eat and not complain about (contains lots of iron, supposedly).

Do they pick "Southern Chicken" to celebrate the holiday, or is it just a random choice?

I remember the episode of "The Office" where Michael thought they were called "Coloured Greens".

Warm, bitter, limp, spinach.

But very good for you.

"In Honor of M.L.King, Southern Style chicken, collard greens and sweet potatoes."

ML King liked these foods. Anyone opposing this is ignorant.

Southern style is fried with salt and pepper.

"All the while King was advocating for change, he never lost sight of his southern traditions and roots. Born in Atlanta, and a resident of several southern states, King enjoyed traditional foods of the south and encouraged southerners to take pride in the ways of life that make the south unique. In honor of King's birthday, January 21, take some time to enjoy some down home southern recipes!"


So there you have it - proof that Dr. King was a racist against black people. No wonder Reagan made his birthday a holiday, for Reagan was a radical right wing bigot! Creating a holiday honoring a known racist, for shame!

"Yesterday, DPS apologized for the menu, which was "highly insensitive in light of certain hurtful stereotypes still harbored in parts of our society," according to a statement posted on the district's web site."

Cook them properly and they aren't bitter.  They are thicker than spinach as well.  I like the texture.
