Apples or oranges
Wonder what the claim would be if it were all white or blonde asparagus?
Wonder if the store floor is B&W tile if he walks on it?
Sounds like the fellows I worked with who claimed racism when they couldn't meet their daily quota in a warehouse,because they sweated more than Caucasians & had to take time to wipe themselves & drink water lol.
Some people really need more to do & really do need to have long talks with themselves. Rick

Morels are sexually suggestive and shouldn't be on public display where children may see them.

I have not seen any white asparagus in the stores lately. I am going to check with an attorney and see if my civil rights have been violated.

Seriously, there was something like that alleged in one town. The minorities complained that a particular grocery chain would ship all the expired meat to a particular store near a minority neighborhood. They alleged that all the expired meat showed up each month around the time everyone received their welfare checks.

Putting the watermelon next to the fried chicken might be seen as a little racist.

Yeah, seems OK though.
If one is on welfare they should get the "secondary foods".

It'll give them some incentive to GET OFF WELFARE.
