There is and has never been anything wrong with soul food/African-American food. It really bothers me when people who don't know what the cuisine is talk about it as if they are experts and the only thing soulful they've eaten is fried chicken from KFC.

Re: Obama Administration Seeks to Overhaul International Food Aid

Is this the "show a man how to fish instead of giving him fish" theory? If so, then the other countries can developed their own system of farming food and create a whole way of doing business that will benefit everyone. Well...as long as war doesn't interfer that is. This just might work. And the food sent over there can stay here and feed our own. But!

I was thinking along the lines of people in those countries could also profit from "giving to charity" or fleecing donations the same way that Americans and Westerners do.
