Political correctness?
Portland burrito shop, run by two white women, closes amidst allegations of cultural appropriation:

"There’s really nothing special about opening a Mexican restaurant—it’s probably something that happens everyday. But the owners of Kooks Burritos all but admitted in an interview with Willamette Week that they colonized this style of food when they decided to 'pick the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever.'"

Can't wait for them to go after all the pizzerias that aren't being run by Italians from lower Manhattan.

We can't make tacos or jump, we are pretty useless.

I can make a taco so good you will be licking your lips. I can't jump though. That is true. Sad

I don't care what color your skin is or what language you speak, if the taco is great tasting that's all that matters. I always thought food was an international language.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I think you just ran into another one of those fake story about multiculturalism. These are so numerous these days. I have become very skeptical of any claim of people or business being sued or closed due to such kind of issue. Your source has retracted itself and declared the story bullshit.

How many of you had serious doubt about this story?

So in the same city a white nationalist stabbed and killed 3 men and horribly injured another for standing up for a Muslim girl he was harassing but fuck those liberals right they are the worst.

RE: Political correctness?
I can't speak for whether the taco shop story is true or not, but there has been, very recently, issues of "cultural appropriation" in Canada that has caused an editor of a magazine to resign and the closing of an artist's exhibition.
