I seriously don’t get what the big deal is.
A menu that the manager of an Ikea store in Atlanta says was meant to honor Juneteenth instead angered Black employees who called it insensitive. Many didn’t show up for work on Saturday – Juneteenth – and some even thought about quitting.
The menu included items such as fried chicken, watermelon, mac and cheese and collard greens.
Employees called that racially insensitive and ignorant and said members of management need to do more to educate themselves on black culture moving forward.
Oh for crying out loud! That is exactly what Black folks eat! And I have seen it with my own eyes. In Lexington Market located in Baltimore, MD, the lines at Park’s Chicken and at another chicken stall are practically out of the door of the market. At other stalls selling collard greens, mac and cheese, chitlins and hog maws, ox tails, cornbread and don’t forget the black eye peas; the lines are wrapped around the stalls. They were also selling watermelon and Black folk were buying it. Ain’t nobody in there selling Fish with white Asparagus, Chocolate Millefueille, Cheese Tuiles, Petit Pois and Spanakopita and what’s more, you don’t even know what most of those dishes consist of.
Also in Baltimore, MD, there was a ‘soul food’ restaurant called, “Yellow Bowl” and they sold nothing but fried chicken, chitlins, hogmaw, barbecue ribs, collard greens, mac n cheese, candied yams, baked beans, banana pudding and so forth and so on. So why the fuck are you Black folks getting upset that IKEA put on the menu for Juneteenth exactly what you go home and eat? There are articles all over the internet showing you fighting over chicken sandwiches at Popeye’s. A Black woman shot up a McDonald’s Drive-thru because an employee forgot to put bacon on her cheeseburger.
But y’all wanna get bent-out-of-shape about what IKEA served. Are you bent-out-of-shape over this???!!!!
A Grand Rapids, Mich. woman faces up to seven years in prison after she was convicted of multiple charges Wednesday for firing a bullet into a McDonald’s drive-through when staff forgot to put bacon in her cheeseburger.
Shaneka Monique Torres, 30, ordered a bacon cheeseburger at the McDonald’s on Feb. 10, 2014 but it arrived without bacon. She complained to a manager and was offered a free burger, according to Grand Rapids local news outlet WZZM 13.
At about 3.am, Torres and her friend returned to order another bacon cheeseburger. This burger also came without bacon and Torres verbally lashed out at a worker before pulling out her handgun and firing a round into the restaurant. No one was injured.
So is this the reason why you think people are making fun of you? Because you act stupid over bacon not on your damn cheeseburger and so if IKEA is serving fried chicken, collard greens, mac n cheese and watermelon, why that’s THE serious problem of the day??!! For the love of!!!!! What you folks get all tore up over is just ridiculous when Black folks are shooting up drive-thrus over a cheeseburger with no bacon. I’ve just got to sit here with my head in my hands and wonder over the stupidity and foolishness that Black people display on a daily basis.
What about THIS??!!! Are you upset about Black folks acting a fool in a Popeye’s restaurant and newsflash, they ARE THE EMPLOYEES!
WOW! Just unbelievable! And if you live in Detroit on the East side, more than likely you’ll wish you’d never been to THIS Popeye’s for a chicken sandwich.
This makes me SO glad that I don’t eat fast food. Popeye’s, Burger King, McDonald’s Subway, Pizza Hut and ALL the rest can keep that shit! And yet Black employees at an IKEA want to get upset and pissed off because IKEA served just what Black folks are lining up, shooting and fighting over and then have the nerve to wonder why you don’t own shit. It’s because you’re too busy getting pissed off over the wrong shit! Get pissed off over the fact that you’ve got to work for the pasty asses that own IKEA who get to make the decision on what to serve. Get pissed over the fact that you are still eating unhealthy shit and will attempt to shoot people and fight to continue to eat that shit. You cannot have it both ways. Don’t even try that booshie shit just because you’re working at IKEA. You know damn well that when you go home, you’re throwing down on some fried chicken, collard greens, mac n cheese and yes, when it’s the season for it; watermelon. I know the deal! I’m Black and I’ve been to too many cookouts and seen exactly what IKEA served ON THE MENU at the cookout! So, come again!!!
IKEA ain’t never lied and the proof is right on this blog. If you wanted to NOT go to work over a serious issue, then it should have been because you were pissed that this fucked up government has tossed another worthless, useless bone to Black Americans who are descendants of slavery in the form of a holiday for the whites called, “JUNETEENTH! You should have gotten pissed off and not gone into work as a revolt against that Juneteenth bullshit, but no, you’ve got to get upset, AGAIN, over the wrong shit; what’s served on a damn menu. Not to mention, you’ve eaten everything on that menu and more of the like and so has just about every single member of your family. You’re certainly not sitting up eating Fish with white Asparagus, Chocolate Millefueille, Cheese Tuiles, Petit Pois and Spanakopita, pâté de foie gras, Flamiche or even tarte tatin. So cut the bullshit, Black folks. You know what the hell you eat and so does everyone else because you’re out in the streets cutting up over it; acting a complete fool. If you don’t want to be perceived as being a certain way, then get your shit together, but as long as you continue to show your ass over a chicken sandwich, cheeseburgers and some more shit of the like, don’t cry about getting served fried chicken, collard greens, mac n cheese and watermelon at IKEA. Stop buying that damn shit, save your money and invest it, open your own damn company and serve what the hell you want. Then you can tell IKEA to take a damn hike, but until then, eat the shit or don’t and we ALL know…you do!
