whenever i see a post making fun of “white people” for not knowing about/using spices I literally scream because as if “white people” = “white american millennials whose only contact with food is mcdonalds”
Literally. It's so embarrassing to me as a white person seeing those reactions. We're already perceived (rightly a lot of the time) as being ignorant of things outside of our sphere and all those tweets do is confirm that. Like, so many people use bay leaves to flavour dishes like spaghetti bolognese and it's common knowledge that you're not supposed to eat the damn thing.
