#KooksBurritos loses cultural battle with authenticity, according to Portland

What is going on the Pacific Northwest? Apparently a boat-load of sinful cultural appropriation. The entire region must be purged. I call on President Trump to take notice! In Olympia, Washington, a progressive professor is being threatened for pointing out that forcing white people to leave campus is racist, and now this. In Portland, Oregon, a burrito truck was put out of business because white ladies have no business making homemade tortillas. Allegations of colonization followed.

Kooks Burritos was opened by two white gals who took a trip to Mexico and were enthralled by tortillas. They brought their entrepreneurial mindset back to Portland and were promptly chastised for it. They were accused of stealing intellectual property from brown ladies, and worse, of having no respect for the culture from which they stole. They closed up shop and erased all social media presence. As if it never happened.

This french-fry filled burrito is so obviously culturally appropriated I lost my appetite.

I wish I could defend these chicas (I can defend the action!), but with statements like this they show they are totally privileged idiots:

Explaining their trip, Connelly told the newspaper: ‘I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did.

‘In Puerto Nuevo, you can eat $5 lobster on the beach, which they give you with this bucket of tortillas. They are handmade flour tortillas that are stretchy and a little buttery, and best of all, unlimited.

They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.’

The courageous white entrepreneurs were lambasted by the local authentic community. From the article that got the social warriors in an uproar:

Portland has an appropriation problem.

This week in white nonsense, two white women—Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connely—decided it would be cute to open a food truck after a fateful excursion to Mexico. 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.”

….

Because of Portland’s underlying racism, the people who rightly own these traditions and cultures that exist are already treated poorly. These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise.’So let’s recap the story thus far: These two white women went to Mexico, ate tacos, and then decided they would just take what the locals clearly didn’t want to give them.

Portland’s underlying racism. Huh. Would never have guessed. Portland’s underlying self-loathing, yes. But not racism. (But I have to correct something in the article – a “taco” is NOT a “burrito” – whoever wrote that article should be fired for disgusting insensitivity to hispanic eaters).

Those words in the article then caused multiple virtuous earth worshippers to chime in:

‘Stealing is in their nature so I’m not surprised. They’re not creative so they had to get the idea from someone,’ Tee McNeill wrote on Facebook.

‘Kooks Burritos is now closed. Good riddance!’ Jonas Lord said.

‘Awww, so you nice ladies stole hard-working and low-income Mexican women’s tortilla recipes and are now turning a profit. That’s not white basic privilege at all. #disgusting,’ Alicia Dominguez commented.

‘Now that you all boldly and pretty f***ing unapologetically stole the basis of these women’s livelihoods, you can make their exact same product so other white ppl (sic) don’t have to be inconvenienced of dealing with a pesky brown middle woman getting in their way. Great job,’ Shauna MacKinnon added.

But what can you expect from a populace made up of people like these groupies in Common Bread, a nonprofit student organization on the campus of Evergreen State College. Please, take a look at what these students are up to every Thursday night. You have to see it to believe it.

How many people of color did you see in that video? I mean legit people of color – like those who don’t get to pass for white because their skin is actually white but they have an ethnic last name. Personally, I think they are appropriating every culture everywhere and this offensive student group should be shut down. They also need to be informed that when they are unable to finish their sentences they may want to detox from the weed for a while. Or, they can just stay in their cozy little enclave eating food off the floor. Just keep it to yourselves and no one will care. That’s the beauty of living in America. Self-realize that!

    This comment is based on the same type of theory I heard as a child. Somehow, if the burrito truck goes out of business the women in Mexico magically have more income. Just like when I was a child, if I ate all my dinner the children in Africa were not hungry.

    So, common bread is Evergreen’s safe space? They look like they’re doing mushrooms. What’s sad is these are the future Democratic leaders of America.

  • Kate says:

    Keep Portland Weird.

  • Kitkat says:

    They are high as fuck, and their speech is nearly incomprehensible. This looks like a comedy show trial run.

  • George V says:

    There was a term for the “Common Bread” folk some years back. What was it? Oh yeah, “Hippies”.

  • Babara says:

    I’m puzzled, how is selling tacos out of a truck in Portland taking income from some ladies in Mexico? Aren’t they thousands of miles apart?

  • J Walter says:

    I wonder what the taco gals think of sjw/feminism now?

  • GWB says:

    Because of Portland’s underlying racism…

    Well, they got that right. Though not in the way they think……

    so other white ppl (sic) don’t have to be inconvenienced of dealing with a pesky brown middle woman friggin’ plane ride to Mexico

    FIFY, you stupid bint.

    Keep Portland weird well away from the rest of the country

    FIFY, Kate. 😉
