The next step by Communists in their blame white people for everything war is now being waged against Caucasian restaurant owners who prepare and serve cultural or ethnic meals, of which everyone at some point does while adding their own spin to the meal. If you’re good at it, then prepare to be double-damned.
Yes, it has come to this. Communists in Portland, Oregon are waging war against Caucasian restaurant owners that serve “Asian, Latin, African, or Indian cuisine” which according to Communist buttheads in Oregon is racist.
Posted online, it does not say by whom is a list of Caucasian owned business who (how dare they) prepare and serve meals made by other cultures. The allegations levied is that these privately-owned businesses are racist and depriving POC (people of color) the opportunity to do the same.
According to their spreadsheet posted online entitled, “(Alternatives To) White-Owned Appropriative Restaurants in Portland”:
This is NOT about cooking at home or historical influences on cuisines; it’s about profit, ownership, and wealth in a white supremacist culture.
White people are nearly 50% more likely than people of color to own a business in the state of Oregon. Ownership builds wealth in ways that employment does not. The racial wealth and small business lending gaps in the US are pronounced, which allows white folks to open new businesses more easily. These white-owned businesses hamper the ability for POC to run successful businesses of their own (cooking their own cuisines) by either consuming market share with their attempt at authenticity or by modifying foods to market to white palates. Their success further perpetuates the problems stated above. It’s a cyclical pattern that will require intentional behavior change to break.
In other words, the “blame whitey” meme (no pun intended) makes no sense at all because no one is denying Blacks, Indians, Mexicans, Asians of whomever the opportunity of opening their own restaurant or to cater meals.

The list, a Google Docs spreadsheet, includes about 60 Portland-area restaurants, the names of their white owners, and the kind of cuisine they serve. (For example, the list informs us that Burmasphere “was founded by a white man who ate Burmese food in San Francisco.”) The spreadsheet also lists competing restaurants that are owned by people of color and urges customers to try them instead.
The spreadsheet seems to be a response to the controversy over Kooks Burritos, a Portland-area pop-up food truck run by two white women. In an interview with Williamette Week, Kooks owners Kali Wilgus and Liz Connelly explained how they fell in love with authentic Mexican tortillas during a visit to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico.
“I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” said Connelly[…]
The owners of weekend food truck business, Kooks Burritos’ deadly sin, according to Marxist in Portland who in Kooks found the opportunity to strike once again against Caucasians, was to pick the brains of Mexican cooks for a recipe which is not an illegal. Women have “picked the brains” of other women to get recipes for generations.
“…I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did,” Connelly says. “They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins. They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy….”
To imply that only Mexican businesses can cook up and serve tacos and Indians, tandoori chicken is racist, anti-American, anti-Capitalist and just plain b.s. Not that this should be an issue (unless one is a Communist), thought I would point out that Mexican food cooked up to serve Americans in the USA is Mexican-American faire just as Japanese, Chinese, Indian, Korean restaurants recipes cater to the palette of Americans. I’m mean really, Portland, what the heck are you thinking?
While the loons who prepared the spreadsheet are within their right to do so, the intent of the document is to do harm, have dominion over others while bullying customers to take their business elsewhere.
There are hundreds of pizza shops in New York City that are not owned by Italians. They are owned by Muslims and not the one who invaded Italy. I have to travel out of my way to find a pizza shop owned by an Italian because the ones in my area, although owned by Italians have Mexicans cooking the meals including pizza.
Some might call me racist for my decision but who cares, I’m old school and that’s how I like my pizza.
Would these same Communists accuse a Muslim pizza shop owner of cultural appropriation? Definitely not. Oh, and “cultural appropriation” is an idiotic term made up by Marxist bullies to extort, control and oppress.
Let’s not forget the chicken shacks in urban communities across the United States that are all owned by Muslims. No complaints? No cries of racism?
At the same time, they are proving to Americans just how vile and evil SJWs are, regardless of their ethnicity.
Good grief. Now that in Portland, Oregon one cannot open a business or serve a meal without being accused of stepping out of one’s lane, correction being a racist and denying “people of color” the right to their own business, what’s next attacking people for what they cook in their kitchens at home?
Actually, it’s about more than that. As noted on the first line of the spreadsheet, “This is NOT about cooking at home or historical influences on cuisines; it’s about profit, ownership, and wealth in a white supremacist culture.”
Let’s be honest, “white supremacist culture” is a line thrown in there to guilt trip useful idiots. Taking a page from the playbook of fellow race baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, this is extortion “it’s about profit, ownership, and wealth.”
Portland’s Communists, if they have not already, will demand payment from these businesses and as proven by Sharpton and Jackson many times over, guilt tripped white owned businesses will pay the bounty, as I suspect not once but many times over.
