California School Plans Fried Chicken and Watermelon Lunch For Black History Month

A California school is under fire for an insensitive menu

Posted:

File under how not to celebrate Black History Month.

Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, California, is under fire after announcing a Black History Month lunch special menu of fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon.

Students at the Northern California private school had been brainstorming ways to celebrate Black History Month. The lunch menu was not what they had in mind.

Students and parents reacted with anger and outrage to the school administration.

According to NBC affiliate KNTV- TV, Principal Nancy Libby responded to the criticism. "I'd like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members," Libby said in the letter. "Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetuate racial stereotypes."

CONCORD, Calif., Feb. 6 (UPI) -- A school in Northern California apologized for a Black History Month school lunch menu that featured fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon, students said.

Parents and students at Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, Calif., said they were outraged by the offerings, KNTV, San Francisco, reported Thursday.

The school quickly apologized in a letter.

"I'd like to apologize for the announcement and any hurt this caused students, parents or community members," Principal Nancy Libby said in the letter. "Please know that at no time at Carondelet do we wish to perpetrate racial stereotypes."

The items were removed from the menu and the school plans to hold a diversity assembly for faculty and students, Libby said.

I love watermelon and fried chicken but I have never ate them in the same meal. I would definitely re-think sending my child there.

Lies. California is way too liberal and accepting.

Racism only happens in the south.
