Alton Brown

Well I'm getting a little peeved about Alton brown,

Last night on the Iron Chef, He stated to a french chef, "You got to make a suflay, Your good at making suflay's because your french."



Where does he get off to think he can stereo type people?

Now if he didn't have star status, no one would care, most of you probably didn't even see that particular show, Now what happens if some one else did that with another person, that was be racial remarks.

See I took as a racial slur, but I will change my mind and see it as Humor.

For goodness sake, it was a JOKE!

And frankly, the French (or folks who follow French cooking practices) DO make the very best souffles, in my opinion, so even if it wasn't a joke, I don't see anything racist about it at all.

absolutely a joke....even if it wasnt a joke, how insulted could someone possibly be from that?

there would be alot less "racism" if people chilled out a bit (on the innocent stuff - he was making a food joke on a cooking show) and didnt try to make everything so unnecessarily PC

I would venture to say it may have been stereotyping, but, certainly not a racial slur and nothing to get upset over. People assume I know how to make grits and biscuits and gravy...and I do! Then I go on to say I prefer cat head biscuits and red eye gravy. I used to lose them at this point but those items are becoming more well-known.
