The Object of Debate

We are having the staff holiday luncheon in the school library today (don't get me started).  There's a table set up for people to set some desserts on.  This lovely and crafty item showed up and my clerk asked me who brought it in.  I didn't know.  She said, "Well, whoever it was, they're white because we [black people] don't do that kind of thing."

True or not true?

I've asked most people that have come through today and so far most people agree with her.

Honestly I'd never thought about it before but it's definitely sparking hilarious conversations.

We (Black people) do bring desserts for celebrations, but we don't use cutesy, country, crafty baskets like that. #scientificfact

LMAO, that is not a Black basket. But we will bring some dessert.
