Diet and race

I've noticed a trend at my job at Bally's. It appears that minorities tend to be a bit less informed about what constitutes a well-balanced diet than do whites. This is not to say that all whites understand healthy eating, or that all minorities do not. But I've noticed a trend...

I think our schools need to do a better job of teaching youngsters about the components of a well-balanced, healthy diet. A lot of kids obviously do not get this type of education at home, and they probably never will. Therefore, the schools should step in as best they can. Home economics (or whatever they call the classes where kids learn about nutrition) should be expanded.

I am right.

Hey Zak,

I think you're right there - apart from minorities who eat traditional meals at home, the youth tend to gorge themselves on fast food like fried chicken, MacDaws and so forth.

Best regards,

I was telling one guy to cut back on sugar... he asked if that meant no more kool-aid. I said yeah. He was in his late 50's. Late 50's and drinking kool-aid?!
