The FOOD INDUSTRY has yet to stop using prejudicial terms when describing food establishments and companies.

Let’s take that first sentence:

“The culinary scene in communities of color is inherently vibrant, undoubtedly distinct, and unapologetically Afrocentric.”

Let’s change it to:

“The culinary scene in white communities is inherently vibrant, undoubtedly distinct, and unapologetically Western European”.

Living in Cleveland, Ohio, and living in multi-ethnic neighborhoods, so-called black communities are not presently thriving. They’re like ghost communities. The advertising aka review is based on a lie right out of the gate.

By calling a restaurant by the color of the people who own it, draws in that color. It does not create an image of welcoming all people, no more than saying a white-owned restaurant will draw in black people, or a gay-owned restaurant will draw in straight people.

Calling restaurants by their color sets up a condition of division by color.

In Cleveland, if you hire all white people, the feds come after you for it, calling it discrimination and force you to hire blacks. Yet, hire all or mostly all black people and the Feds let it slide.

A business owned by women, or blacks or any other demographic is not run better or does not serve better food because of it. It’s the individual and collective talent responsible for that, regardless of the demographics.

When people see a specific demographic running a business their brains immediately start wondering what makes that business different from any other business, which in itself greases the wheel of prejudice. Rather than inclusive, it becomes exclusive.

Advertising matters. When advertising prejudice for sale, everybody loses. They claim to be making millions of dollars, which only proves that prejudice pays – well.
