To David Chang, the ‘ethnic’ food aisle
is racist. Others say it’s convenient.

To millions of shoppers, the supermarket is just a place to stock up on produce and pantry staples to keep the family fed. But to others, especially children of immigrants who may already feel pushed to the margins of the American mainstream, the supermarket can be just another place to experience the sting of their outsider status. The sting occurs whenever they walk down the “ethnic” food aisle, the section of the supermarket that, to some, plays out like a remnant of the Jim Crow era, when laws established separate facilities for African Americans in the post-Reconstruction South. Sometimes known

Are these people nuts? I Think I know the answer. Grocery stores are now racist because of how the food is displayed. Try getting a life!

What a load of rubbish. It is very difficult to “display” foods in an ethnic food display aisle because too many of these women really like to feel around and sort through whatever is displayed, finding the perfect green beans (one by one), pinching avocados to find ripe ones (leaving future bruises behind) and generally making a mess of things. We have whole ethnic markets around us. The “ethnics” still flock to supermarkets when corn on the cob is on sale (talk about a feeding frenzy) and yesterday there was a mob scene at Aldi’s for 39 cent mangos. Give it up, David! (Is this that Chang who is so doomsday about our relations with China, seems to disagree with PDJT, and is generally an Eeyore - appears on Fox Business - or another Chang?

Responding to my #1, no. This is the scruffy-looking Korean David Chang in the video. David Chang is an American restaurateur, author, and television personality. He is the founder of the Momofuku restaurant group, Stick with your kimchee, David. You don’t speak for everyone. And how about a shower and a shave? Looking at scruffy you, I’d be afraid to eat in one of your restaurants...

If he did all his shopping in grocery stores in Asia ALL the isles would be ethnic food. Problem solved. Unless there is a racists American Foods isle. He could complain in Asia about that and get ignored or laughed at.

Why don’t the writers and migrants who feel this way leave the country since a grocery store/America is so offensive? Liberals will never be satisfied and they are getting worse. Goalposts always moving. I guess all white people except the enlightened elite liberals need to die to begin to satisfy their ideals for “fairness”. Who would then pay for all the programs that would support all the offended?

I’ve been out in the kitchen, cooking dinner. Looking around me, I realize what difficulty I would have - how disoriented and unwelcome I would feel - if I tried to find many (most?) of the things I am cooking with… the ingredients, etc. - if I were in David’s Korea. I am sick of immigrants as victims. They don’t have to be. They could stay in their home countries where they should feel right at home. This is MY home. OUR home.

In Utah our "ethnic food" aisles have only the whitest of ethnic foods. If you want anything authentic you really have to go to one of the ethnic markets. That goodness Utah is full of real Middle Eastern, Asian, Hispanic markets where you can get fish sauce, moles, sumac and other necessities to be a good cook.

What a moron. Ethnic foods are where those who mostly eat them can easily find them. But maybe they should be scattered around the store. Then Mexicans and Chinese, etc. might discover the American foods they are mixed in with are better, then their culture takes a hit.

I have two exchange students from Asia. When they saw the Asian food section at our Local Fred Meyers, they thought it was really cool and found it inclusive. They did not expect to find a taste of home in such a mainstream market. I’ve also taken them to a few local Asian markets, where the variety is much broader, and they liked them, too, but they really liked having the mixture of western and eastern ingredients in the same store. Go figure...

People like this guy must spend all there waking hours looking for something...anything that offends them. The Asian, Hispanic sections are for everyones convenience and not just for ethnics. It means that I don’t have to go roaming all over Kroger to find fish sauce. I am whiter than white and love to cook dishes from other cultures. We had tacos just tonight and I am cooking fried rice tomorrow night. Both Chang and the writer need to get a life.

After bashing the ethnic food aisles as racist, blah blah the author finally gets to talking to real people in the grocery business who say that grouping the Asian, Hispanic, etc. foods in one spot is good for sales since shoppers looking for these ingredients find it better that they are all together in one location. So after fulminating about racism and shabby treatment of non-whites for god-knows-how-many-words, the conclusion is "never mind." (Full disclosure: I was a newspaper reporter and editor for 21 years, working under some of the best editors in the business at three major newspaper chains. None of my old bosses would have published this stupidity.)

I travel a lot and one of the first things I do when visiting another country is to have a wander around the local grocery store. It's fascinating to see all of the different products available and I like to discover new things to try as well as take home. Just last month I was in Iceland and enjoyed some very strange foods, and have since become a huge fan of Skyr which is a type of yogurt/cheese. Next month I'll be in Poland and can't wait to visit the local grocery store there. I don't believe for a minute the fake outrage from this Chang fellow. He's just looking for attention and should really just be ignored.

HANCEVILLE, Ala. — U.S. Sen. Doug Jones walked into a recent town hall and declared he was ready for whatever his constituents wanted to throw at him. But first, he wanted to address the biggest news from Washington: The House impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump. "I'm not making a judgment about where we are on any of this because it's too early," Jones said, not waiting to be asked. He noted his potential role as a juror if the issue lands in the Senate.

His rules are:   *Report the news in a true or reasonably true manner   *Report/comment on stories the so-called mainstream media bury so you can’t see them
