On MLK Day last month, the Denver Public Schools served Southern-style fried chicken, biscuits, and collard greens for lunch.

Despite the fact that MLK was actually from the South and actually liked those foods, the racial grievance crowd raised hell and complained that the menu was RAAAAACIST — prompting an apology from the school system.

Now, we have another p.c. food brouhaha — from the cafeteria halls of NBC News in New York City.

Mediaite has a photo of the network’s Black History Month menu, which includes fried chicken, collard greens, black-eyed peas, and biscuits.

JWF is certainly right to call out the Left for its double standards:

“Could you imagine the media meltdown if Fox” did this?

True enough. And the demogogue race-baiters at MSNBC certainly don’t help.

But the annoying double standard doesn’t justify joining the cuisine correctness crowd and extracting apologies for serving up soul food.

My prescription: Everybody, chillax.
