On Food and Race

Good recently ran an article entitled, “Eating While Black: How I Navigate Watermelon, Fried Chicken, and Frozen Yogurt.” It’s a fascinating read and offers some insight on the significance of food and racial expectations. I know that most, if not all, of the people who read this blog are white, but I’d love to hear any thoughts or experiences you might have in response.

(The only experience I have to contribute is not liking traditional Jewish food. Which is a contentious issue around Passover and Rosh Hashana, but not really what Aydrea Walden is talking about here.)
