When we, as Americans, pontificate about the myriad of differences between The South and the rest of the nation, certain subjects will almost invariably be broached time and again.

Of course, one of the most prominent cultural differences that we see between The South and the rest of America comes from our dinner plates.  Food is always a representation of where a locale came from, and from where their citizens hailed from before, and this makes Dixie one of most digestively diverse places in the entire world.

Meals like grits, collared greens, and chitlin all belie the extreme poverty of the reconstruction era south, after the north had decimated them with Sherman’s terrorism.  These meals, while somewhat unappealing in their origin for other Americans, hold a special place in the hearts of southerners.

And speaking of special places in the heart of southerners, one would be hard pressed to find anyone below the Mason Dixon line who doesn’t revere Waffle House as one of the most iconic establishments around today.

Nearly 200 restaurants in the chain will be dimming the lights, putting out nice white table cloths, and welcoming couples for a special dinner service.

This is the 12th year in a row the company is celebrating with the Valentine’s Day tradition. It started in 2008 at a Waffle House in John’s Creek, Georgia. when the manager noticed more customers dining on the holiday and decided to make it special for everyone.

And, in a tongue-in-cheek nod to where people could have gone instead, these Waffle House restaurants will also be taking reservations.

Joe Biden Wants Congress To Ban Chokeholds And Work On Police Reform

Published

Former Vice President and current Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden has called on Congress to take up the fight for police reform now instead of waiting until November. These comments come just a day after President Trump encouraged the use of military force to try and bring the chaos reigning in many cities across the country as violent protests explode, leading to riots, looting, and even shootings. Biden wants to see lawmakers ban the use of chokeholds by law enforcement officers with a federal law. Along with this he wants to see a national list of use-of-force best practices and for military grade equipment to stop being transferred over to local police departments. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “If Mitch McConnell can bring in the Senate to confirm Trump’s unqualified judicial nominees who will run roughshod over our Constitution now, it’s time to pass legislation that will give true meaning to our constitutional promise of equal protection under the law,” Biden said. Biden then went on to vow that he would make dealing with institutional racism one of his top priorities during his 100 days in office, should he defeat Trump in the upcoming presidential election. He also restated that he supports a police oversight commission. “Bad cops should be dealt with severely and swiftly,” Biden stated. “We set up in the Justice Department the ability for the Civil Rights Division to go in and look at the practices and policies of police departments. That’s why we were able to stop stop and frisk,” Biden told leaders gathered at the Bethel AME Church. “Reestablish that with more teeth in it because we also have to fundamentally change the way in which police are trained.” How can Biden claim to deal with institutional racism? Racism is a…

Biden Delivers Speech On Racism, Says Trump Is ‘Part Of The Problem’

Published

During remarks delivered by Democratic Party presumptive nominee Joe Biden concerning the rioting, looting, and deadly protests happening across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death at the hands of police officers, the former vice president couldn’t resist sliding in a big shot at President Trump. “The president of the United States must be part of the solution, not part of the problem,” Biden said during the speech Tuesday morning. “But this president today is part of the problem and accelerates it.” The speech, so far, is the most direct assault on the president’s handling of the current civil unrest rocking the country after Floyd’s tragic death in Minneapolis on May 25. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: “When he tweeted the words when the looting starts the shooting starts, they weren’t the words of the president, they were the words of a racist Miami police chief in the 1960s,” Biden said, referencing Trump’s controversial tweets over the last week. “The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us, leadership that brings us together. Leadership that can recognize pain and deep grief of communities that have had a knee on their neck for a long time,” he said. “There’s no place for violence, no place for looting, or destroying property or destroying churches or destroying businesses.” As this was a prime opportunity for Biden to chit-chat about the upcoming presidential election later this year, the presumptive nominee promised that he would “seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country.” What that entails or how he plans to do such a thing still remain a mystery.
