It Is Official...

We are totally without common sense.

I just read an article that explains that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are racist.  You can read about it here.

Really?  Racist?  Give me a break.  Basically, the article states that the American tradition of PBJ sandwiches may offend those who do not eat sandwich bread because other cultures may eat different forms of bread such as pita.  So a PBJ sandwich is racist because it is all about "white privilege," and  schools should be sensitive to the customs of those students whose birthplace was not America.

I have an idea.  How about we teach American customs in American schools.  And while we are at it, why don't we insist that people of other nationalities who chose to become American citizens learn our customs and traditions and language.  I have nothing against those who come to our country seeking citizenship and a better life for themselves and their families.  Had I found myself in their position, I would probably have done the same.   We all want a better life for our loved ones.  But I am getting really tired of being told that I should consider American customs and traditions "racist."

So now, if you will excuse me, I think I will go fix myself a PBJ sandwich.  And I refuse to apologize for it.
