CHANCELLOR | We Are Not a Monolith

Within the Comedy Central present “Key & Peele,” there was a sketch about Black Republicans the place a sequence of audio system arose, stating that the Black neighborhood is numerous and never a monolith. A monolith is a gaggle of individuals seen as uniform and indivisible. The present cultural observe has been to deal with minority coalitions as one group lumped collectively. Given the plethora of various cultural identities throughout the Black neighborhood, categorizing African Individuals throughout the monolith results in the hurt and disappearance of Black voices and views. 

The perfect native encapsulation of the monolith drawback was earlier this month in a collaborative publish on Instagram  by Cornell Eating and Black College students United to have fun Black Historical past Month.

Nonetheless, there was a delicacies that was notably left off the checklist: soul meals. This African American delicacies consists of delectable eats corresponding to fried hen, mac and cheese, collard greens, cornbread and yams. It makes my mouth water simply enthusiastic about it. Individuals within the feedback part of the Instagram publish echoed the sentiment. Provided that African Individuals fought for Black Historical past Month to acknowledge their tradition and historical past, Cornell Eating, even when collaborating with Black College students United, fully ignored Black tradition.

The offense continued, with most of the cuisines having overlapping parts. Ghana and the Gold Coast delicacies was provided at Becker Home on Feb. 8, however Jansens at Hans Bethe Home served a basic West African delicacies the identical evening. When a map, you possibly can see that Ghana is a part of West Africa. This was not the one case of overlap. Trinidad & Tobago, Haiti and Jamaica all have their very own delicacies nights, however there may be additionally a basic Caribbean delicacies evening, which all these nations are a part of. Cuisines from Caribbean Islands corresponding to Cuba and Puerto Rico had been included, although these cuisines aren’t thought of to be a part of Black delicacies. Cornell Eating created a localized monolith of African Diaspora college students, erasing African Individuals throughout a celebration of Black Historical past Month.
