A California high school is under fire for a lunchtime faux pas. Some parents and pupils at Carondelet High School were offended after finding out the all-girls school planned to serve up fried chicken, cornbread and watermelon to celebrate Black History Month.

Don’t you think that is a little racist?

Carondelet High School for Girls in Concord, California wanted to celebrate black history month, but managed to really upset some conscious parents.

The school was serving fried chicken, collard greens, cornbread, and watermelon…..because you know? That’s what y’all eat. (((Wow))) These parents were upset and expressed themselves. The school back tracked and issued an apology.

Carondelet High School’s Apology:

Dear Parents, Students and Carondelet Community, 

Carondelet High School has garnered significant media coverage this week regarding a campus announcement about the School’s celebration of Black History Month. Unfortunately, that announcement described a menu that was racially insensitive, and students, parents, community members, and media outlets are concerned about this insensitivity. We are, too. We would like to share with you the statement we are posting on our website, Facebook and have given to the media today. 

We are saddened and distressed by part of our daily announcement on Monday regarding Black History Month. That announcement described a menu that was racially insensitive. Our normal procedures would have caught this insensitivity before it was planned or broadcast to our student body, but those processes broke down and the menu was planned and publicized without administrative knowledge or permission. 

We are addressing the communication breakdown and using this incident to raise awareness about cultural sensitivity and diversity, so such incidents never again occur in the Carondelet community. Cultural insensitivity of any kind is inconsistent with the mission of Carondelet High School, which is dedicated to educating, challenging, and enabling young women to integrate gospel values in their lives.

We appreciate your feedback on the matter. Please contact our Director of Communications, Christina Ditzel (cditzel@carondeleths.org) directly if you have any questions.
