White Women Driven Out of Business for 'Cultural Appropriation.' They Make Burritos...
Leftists are convinced that food racism is an actual thing (see Liberals Bitch to NPR That Cooking Other Culture's Food is 'Racist.' Wow...). Spoiler alert: no. So, of course, emotionally unstable whinopaths embarked on a quest to end all things cultural appropriation. Their latest target: a food truck in Portland which makes burritos. The nerve of those tortilla thieves!
Owners of Portland pop-up shop Kooks Burritos just wanted to make and sell some really great burritos. So when they were on a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, they ... brought recipes back to the States.
"I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did," Connelly told Willamette Weekly. Apparently this interview sparked an Internet shitstorm, which ended in Kooks Burritos shutting down and the two white women who owned it scrubbing social media of the business' existence.
Wilgus and Connelly were accused of cultural appropriation by the Internet mob, and even the theft of PoC's recipes.

They received tons of harassment from disgruntled SJWs who didn't appreciate the fact that Kook's spicy bean machines were influenced by Mexico. So it didn't take long for the burrito burglars in question to close up shop. But it gets even worse...
Mic.com fanned the flames with an article, "These white cooks bragged about stealing recipes from Mexico to start a Portland business." Soon after the controversy, a list of white-owned "appropriative" businesses began circulating online, featuring some of Portland's top restaurants. The list also suggested the nearest "PoC alternatives" to each white business.
Progressives are under the delusion that it's only they who get to decide who to bestow burrito freedoms unto.
In short, the left wants to control who can profit from what. Or more specifically, in this case, which people can create buttery, tortilla-wrapped weapons of ass destruction. Except there's a snag. See, there is no such thing as cultural appropriation in the land of food. Or anywhere else. It's like a classy Amy Schumer. Not a thing.
Chefs have built upon each other's ideas since the history of cuisine. If these sniveling whinebags don't like it, might I suggest they lead by example and rid their homes of all the technology and items that other cultures have built. Have fun!
OR, and brace yourselves for this suggestion, they can simply NOT EAT THE BURRITOS and leave the ladies alone.
By the way, this is what real racism and actual hate looks like. Seeking to destroy businesses owned by a certain race, while lifting up those of another race simply because of their skin pigment.
While we're on the subject...
