U.S. Army Base's 'Black History Heritage' Meal: Malcolm X, Pig Feet
A tipster forwards us this "Black History Heritage Meal" menu from the US Army base in Ft. Bragg, NC: fried chicken, pig feet, ham hocks, collard greens... all the stereotypical foods are represented. The ol' "comedically stereotypical Black History Month menu" is a pretty damn familiar trope of its own, at this point. I'm more impressed by the US Army's open-minded photo montage.
MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.: "A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom."
W.E.B. DUBOIS: "What do nations care about the cost of war, if by spending a few hundred millions in steel and gunpowder they can gain a thousand millions in diamonds and cocoa?"
MALCOLM X: "You show me a capitalist, and I'll show you a bloodsucker."
And of course the most famous Malcolm X quote of all, "Come enjoy some pork chops and pig feet!'
