Ta-Nehsi Coates, black nationalist/nerd culture blogger at the Atlantic (sort of like Aaron MacGruder without the sense of humor) writes about his experiments with making homemade granola:
The concept of making homemade granola passes without comment. Really, I’m not saying anything. Not gonna touch that one.
But seriously, folks, blasting your body with those kinds of carbs is doing it no favors. I was previously banned by him from the Atlantic for saying Martin Luther King Jr. was a communist sympathizer, which isn’t much challenged by the actual facts. My comment here was, “Why don’t you just eat the sugar directly out of the bag? You’ll get the same nutritional value and save yourself a lot of effort.” Or something like that, because he deleted it.
But why? Pointing out that the #1 secular saint of liberalism was all gooey for communist insurgency is just rude; not wrong, just rude, and I understand that. But can’t the man stand a little trash talking on what he eats? I kid because I love! Actually no, if he died of a heart attack tomorrow I wouldn’t really give a crap.
But some things are just wrong. I mean, wrong. I’m not one of those “carbs are evil! EVIL!” people but the human body was not designed for this. You need some carbs for energy but you also need some protein and fat. Have granola at breakfast if you must, but have some eggs and a banana with it. With what this man is eating he may as well have Captain Crunch.
Update- I have not been merely deleted, I have been banned. Again. And I was only trying to help. A white man puts out the hand of help and friendship to a black man, and has it smacked down. Dr. King may have been a pinko, but even he wouldn’t have wanted this. Unless he ate granola for breakfast and was very sensitive.
