“One commenter at the Tribune observed that the phrase “as American as apple pie” could also be seen as racist if “people of color don’t eat it.”

PB&J on tortillas rocks. Double fold and the jelly doesn’t drip out!
If a writer put crap like this in a novel like “1984”, the critics would hammer him (or her) for being stupid.
