Blacks rarely use lard. I can not recall either of my grandmothers using lard instead of shortening or oil. No lard bricks at our house.

Quite a few Blacks have given up cooking with pork, and use smoked turkey to season the beans and vegetables.

I'm not going to lie, the food mentioned in the article made my mouth water. Our ancestors didn't become obese like what we see today, only because Our ppl worked all day long that it burnt off all those unwanted pounds. no wonder.....

Now before we all turn this subject into another racist name calling free for all we must remember that the noble Black African ate a lot of starchy foods out there in the jungels and planes of the bush country.Like monkey meat and bannanas,nuts and,plants;stuff natual to them so they could fight off lions and baboons and such.
All the fatty foods were introduced to them by us well meaning white folks.
Their bodies just couldn't process all the greese and sugars that made white folks taller and smarter...well...and white.
I can't speak for every white person but,I'm sorry my people turned you guys into mutants.
Don't worry, the Summer is coming and let's just hope its a heat wave. Burn Baby Burn ! Fire, fire! skin peeling. Lobster Redness, Scabs and puss forming,skin bubbling, Oh My.
We will see who the real mutant is.
