So, we import people with their hands out instead of them bringing something to offer us? What a complete 180 from the Ellis Island immigrants and my ancestors that came here.

We truly are lost.

Slewsie Psycho Baby,

In your Cell at the Seattle West Asylum do you receive all the Ethnic Foods you demand?

Lime Jello with raisins and carrots?

Cocoo Puffies?

Strained Green Beans?

Alphabet Soup?

Soylent Green?

I hope that all the money that We the People have sacrificed to keep you away from society has been well spent. We want YOU to be happy in your Culture.

Vodka would be a Russian Cultural Food.

Russians are not Official Victims on the Demokrat Plantations. Therefore any discussion about Vodka is not relevant.

ONLY the Newest Plantation Dependents are to have their demands for "Culturally Correct Foods" met by the good people that GIVE time and personal wealth to feed the Dependents.

Welcome to America, now learn the language, learn to eat the food we eat, enjoy your freebies, and quit complaining!
And, shame on the Salvation Army for their pandering to these ingrates! They ALL get food stamps, and can find their "ethnic" food at the grocery store!

Now piggy be fair. I all likelihood it was some guilty white people who decided to try and be more "ethnically correct" at the food shelves.

As usual, I am happy to help out the growing dark colored ethnic population of the United States. Just the other day I saw a dead possum on the road. This and other assorted forms of road kill would be a fine way to feed the unwanteds. Be it a dead rabbit, a dead skunk or many a run over deer.

Is this type of road kill suitable for the Muslim population?

almost every food we eat is either a ethnic food of some country. or one that has been altered to become different in many ways.
.
sausages are European. same with buns. combine them. what do you get - a hotdog.
The word frankfurter comes from Frankfurt, Germany, where pork sausages similar to hot dogs originated. Wiener refers to Vienna, Austria, whose German name is "Wien", home to a sausage made of a mixture of pork and beef. those types were and are also still used today in hotdogs. the bun was from a Polish vendor at the time.
.
our fish and fries are British in ancestry. but over there they call the fries - chips.
.
the pizza here is a define alteration of what is consumed in Italy.
.
and the food we know as saurkraut actually has it's ancestry in China. same with several other 'ethnic' foods we associate with Europe.
.
meatloaf is a dish with German and Belgium roots. a Roman mentioned it in the 5th century in his writings.
.
from doing research on it. beer originated in either Egypt or Iraq. both have it recorded in their ancient records. and both countries records are about the same age as the other country.
.
just like many regions have their own form of bread. be it raised and or flatbread.
.
.
so before you call any food American. better take a look at the roots of that food. things you uncover about it. just might surprise you.
.
.
just like coffee originated with Muslims. since the coffee plant was found in Islamic held areas. http://www.ncausa.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm... The Arabs were the first, not only to cultivate coffee but also to begin its trade. By the fifteenth century, coffee was being grown in the Yemeni district of Arabia and by the sixteenth century it was known in Persia, Egypt, Syria and Turkey.
Its popularity was perhaps due, in part, to the fact that Muslims, forbidden alcoholic drink by the Koran, found coffee's energizing properties to be an acceptable substitute.

I do agree that they need to learn to eat what we have. it helps in many ways for folks to blend in better. they still can keep their ancestral identities in other ways.
.
but many folks still even in America still eat as comfort foods what their own ancestors brought here to America.
.
there is another way I do not think they thought of. in their own communities. have them set up their own food shelf. this way, they can still get what they need. if they help contribute to it to keep it going.

Actually, I was a flight attendant for years, have lived in Amsterdam and London for years, and have traveled to many countries. So I'm quite familiar with 'ethnic food.'
I'm pretty sure most people reading my post understood that by "American food" I meant the vast variety of food readily available in the average grocery stores in every neighborhood. With all due respect.

BS! I don't eat ethnic food of any kind. I live off the land deer, fish, nuts and berries. I have been trained eat things that would make a billy goat puke!

Yup, the African Kings and Queens sent it over with the "Folk" that they sold into slavery after they enslaved their neighbors to sell, just like the Historical Pimps that the Beer Discoverers have always been.

-The charity said that some Hmong families need bamboo shoots, baby corn and other culturally specific fare because their stomachs won’t accept certain American foods.
---Won't Accept???? How? They can get corn but I'm sure bamboo shoots aren't cheap.

-For Hispanic families, the call is for rice, Maseca corn flour, cooking oil, hot sauce, salsa, and cans of fruit, veggies and hot peppers.
---Beans and Spicy Beans if farting contributes to global warminng liberals better help deport 'em all, they already get tons of rice btw so....

----For Real though people can't live off that crap.

-Salvation Army spokeswoman Annette Bauer said the charity is also seeing an increased demand at its food shelves for gluten-free products among families with members dealing with allergies
---Fair enough

----This is the only reasonable request.

-----If you want to eat specific stuff go get a real job and buy it yourself

Better run that by Overseer Bloomberg first.
