Does this mean I can no longer cook an Indian or Chinese meal at home? Or go to my local pub on curry night. Whoever came up with the idea that we are abusing other cultures by cooking their food really needs to be wiped out of the gene pool.

OK the article was a questioning one, but the very thought of it is like the "Baa Baa rainbow sheep" crap.

As only black people can say the N word, it now looks like it's going to be racist for white people to make Jamaican patties, or jerk chicken.

Do you actually care, Rich, or are you just determined to be angry about anything and everything you possibly can?

This board should be renamed Rich's gammonathon.

I just tried to say gammonathon and failed badly.

Now having read the article and understood some it does it suggest that all the local restaurants that offer “authentic” Indian cuisine that aren’t owned/run by Indians will have close? That’ll mean a raft of Pakistani/ Bangladeshi eateries opening near me then.

Holy moly. A good reminder that americans do not have a monopoly on racism & small minded thought.

Personally I've always enjoyed a small Hawaiian, although some disagree with the fruit thing. Is black pepper a problem? Anyway, I'm off out for a wee Chinky
